We Don’t Swim Here by Vincent Tirado (it was okay)
You’re Not Supposed To Die Here Tonight by Kalynn Bayron . LOVED THIS!!
Even though I didn’t enjoy all of these you may have a different opinion so I wanted to share and happy reading!
Hey there! I recently finished The Black God’s Drums by P. Djeli Clark. It is a slim, quick read, which describes the aftereffects of an altered New Orleans, caught in the turmoil of warring factions combining sacred Voudou, steampunk aircrafts, and a uniquely liberated sociopolitical atmosphere. Here, oppression and the tools to combat it has elements of the supernatural as well as other-earthly. Speaking of alternate universes, the Bitter Root graphic novel series by David Walker is adept at its treatment of the origins of systematic racism, and what it means (and takes) to be spiritually and supernaturally gifted to fight such a monster. The monsters are actualy afflicted like zombies of skinwalkers, and the central characters are generational slayers of the scourge. Very compelling considerations of past and present social issues, with a fantastical element for fun and intrigue!.
The Magic of Marie Laveau: Embracing the Spiritual Legacy of the Voodoo Queen of New Orleans. I really enjoyed reading the story.
