Kort om boken
Om Son of the Storm
'A vibrant tale of betrayal, intrigue and revolution' Anthony Ryan 'A thrilling, fantastical adventure that introduces a beguiling new world' S. A. Chakraborty 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. Praise for Son of the Storm 'Everything I love to see in a fantasy story: masterful, fully-realised worldbuilding, morally complex characters, thoughtful and piercing interrogations of power . . . Damn good stuff!' Jenn Lyons 'An elaborately plotted tale of ancient magics and world-shattering politics. I, like many others, will be impatiently waiting for the next instalment!' Andrea Stewart 'An original and fully conceived new world of fantasy teeming with brilliant possibilities' P. Djèlí Clark 'An epic fantasy set apart by how deftly Okungbowa unfurls his intricate, richly imagined world' A. K. Larkwood 'Forgotten magic propels a richly drawn story of ambition, conspiracy and the elusiveness of belonging' Fonda Lee 'Bold characters, bloody action and brutal politics. I thoroughly enjoyed it!' James Islington
I have to say that this is everything I love to see in a fantasy story: masterful, fully-realised worldbuilding, morally complex characters, thoughtful and piercing interrogations of power, privilege, and all the facets of human nature. Can't wait to see the next book in the series. Damn good stuff! A mesmerising coming of age tale set against a thrilling, fantastical adventure that introduces an beguiling new world...and then rips apart everything you think you know Okungbowa's world feels fully formed from the first pages, sweeping readers away into an elaborately plotted tale of ancient magics and world-shattering politics. I, like many others, will be impatiently waiting for the next installment! A world so exquisitely observed in every detail, from the built environment to its social and political organization, that you can't help but tumble headlong into its vivid, captivating reality. Esheme is a standout: her unflinching subversion of motherhood to serve her own ends absolutely thrilled me An epic fantasy set apart by how deftly Okungbowa unfurls his intricate, richly imagined world. It's not often you get to read a fantasy novel that spans not only ancient magic, sinister machinations and monstrous forests but courthouses, college classes and hairdressers too, evoking the terrible and fascinating city-state of Bassa in living, breathing detail An original and fascinating epic fantasy full of bold characters, bloody action and brutal politics. I thoroughly enjoyed it! Okungobwa's richly-drawn and ruthlessly strict world never provides its conflicted characters with easy answers. Fantastical beasts and forgotten magic propel a story about ambition, conspiracy, and the elusiveness of belonging. This is epic fantasy that will make you think and leave you unsettled This sweeping and politically charged fantasy explores race, gender, and culture in a complex and compelling world
