Format: Paperback
Moses: The Chronicles of Harriet Tubman is an exciting mash up of steampunk, alternate history and horror. In this version of our Post Civil War 1800's Harriet is hired by John Wilkes Booth (that's right, John Wilkes Booth) to rescue his child Margaret from kidnappers. Harriet Tubman is a supernatural heroine, so she does her job well. She later discovers that Booth is not the girl's father, which launches the story into a frenzy of action and adventure. The adventure speeds us across the U.S. and Mexico, introducing us to extraordinary characters and exciting scenarios along the way.
Balogun writes in a rapid fire style with short, action packed chapters and colorful, unexpected characters. No one is as they seem and the story's twists and turns had me feeling like I was on a wild roller coaster ride and loving every minute of it.

One of the most entertaining aspects of Moses is the re-imaging of historical history. No one is safe from Balogun's imagination, and everyone ends up with a fresh identity to match the world he creates for us. The other characters are just as imaginative and vivid; my two favorites are Mama Maybelle and Black Mary. When you read the book you'll clearly see why. This book contains Part I, which is the original novella, and Part II, the continuation of Harriet's adventure. If you read the novella, don't just start with Part I. Balogun has expanded on Part I a bit so it's worth the re-read.

So get Moses: The Chronicles of Harriet Tubman, strap on your bicycle helmet and keep your hands inside the car. You'll enjoy the ride.

Format: Paperback
Love this new release of "Moses: The Chronicles of Harriet Tubman" with both books 1 and 2 ("Kings" and "Judges"). It's a kickass supernatural steampunk action-adventure alternate history starring American heroine Harriet Tubman as she battles the eerily-gifted and treacherous crew led by Secretary of War Edwin Stanton, a hoard of ghouls, and the evil spirit of John Wilkes Booth. Set in post-Civil War USA. Appearances by Louis Pasteur, Abe Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, among others. Wonderfully written by a master of martial arts, with never a dull moment or a superfluous word. Can't wait for more!

Not recommended for children, there are some very dark and violent moments.

I can honestly say that I've been waiting for this book for years. I first discovered fantasy & science fiction when I was 13 years old. Regular fiction was entertaining, but impossible flights of fancy captivated me the most. However, as I began to immerse myself in those genres it became glaringly obvious to me that the future (and even the past) contained few or no people of color. The African-American section of my local bookstores and libraries offered me three choices--beautifully written but tragic tales focusing on slavery and segregation (Alice Walker, Toni Morrison); sensationalized stories of the project or penthouse dwellers (Jerome E. Dickey, or Christian love stories. All of these genres are valuable because they speak to someone's real, lived experience. But none of them spoke to *me*. I was born and raised in MLK's birthplace so the legacy of slavery was no secret to me. However, as child of Generation Y, I went to school with and friends of all different races. I had hope that we would someday transcend our history, and I felt that my life was proof that being black in America was not an inevitable tragedy. Coming from a solidly working class family, I had no experience of the projects or the country clubs. And romance literature as a whole is too predictable for me.

The exceptions to these limited choices were the gumshoe mysteries penned by Walter Mosley, Octavia E. Butler's dystopic sci-fi, the lighthearted fiction of Pearl Cleage...and now Balogun Ojetade's exciting "steamfunk". This book imagines Harriet Tubman as a superhero of sorts, in a world where she and other "Gifted" fight for good or evil. What starts out as a simple kidnapping case evolves into a sinister threat against the country--and that's as far as I can go without any spoilers!
