Thank you to Adri @ Perpetual Pages for this extensive list of content warnings. I would have missed some if they didn’t have it all written.
Graphic descriptions of blood, gore, violence, rape, bodily mutilation, dismemberment and dead bodies; mentions of massacres, infanticide, human trafficking, and human experimentation; instances of colorism/racism, misogyny, substance abuse/addiction, use of mind-altering drugs, verbal/physical abuse. Additionally, some instances of unchallenged ableism.
FAM. When I got picked to be on this blog tour, I was over the moon excited. Do you know how rare it is for me to get to read some West African inspired fantasy novel? And this also has some Caribbean mythology involved as well, so I get two amazing cultures put together in one book, and I’m just so happy to get to read this!
