In the city of Bassa, Danso is a clever scholar on the cusp of achieving greatness-only he doesn't want it. Instead, he prefers to chase forbidden stories about what lies outside the city walls. The Bassai elite claim there is nothing of interest. The city's immigrants are sworn to secrecy.
But when Danso stumbles across a warrior wielding magic that shouldn't exist, he's put on a collision course with Bassa's darkest secrets. Drawn into the city's hidden history, he sets out on a journey beyond its borders. But the chaos left in the wake of his discovery threatens to destroy the empire.
Award-winning author Suyi Davies Okungbowa begins a thrilling new epic fantasy series of violent conquest, buried histories and forbidden magic.

From Korey's accent to his Suyi's story telling this has been one of the best books/audiobooks I've read this year. The story had me so gripped, I cannot wait for book 2. I also got the preorder campaign character cards and for the first time ever the characters looked exactly how they were described in the book.

OMG! This needs to be a movie!
This is an incredible tale of fate, power and treachery! I couldn't put it down! When am I getting book 2 please???!
I was hooked from the jump and I enjoyed every word. There's anger, there's hope, there's despair, there's such awful violence, opression, entitled ignorance bordering on todays world colonial mindset, there's naivete that whets the appetite as we wait for the other two instalments in this trilogy and I can't wait.
Do I want to go through the red emperors bloody reign like her predecessors, no, but its coming but weathering through it clears the clouds where a new world will be borne.
I loved every bit of this book.
