Star Rating: 3.5 out of 5
In addition to its own fantastical world, Woman King makes full use of San Francisco as a backdrop...The city's ubiquitous fog, diverse culture, and environmentally conscious atmosphere tie into the novel's emphasis on the supernatural in unexpected ways. Woman King puts the witty, femme-power elements reminiscent of Charmed at a contemporary tempo, with, of course, the addition of myth and lore. Readers familiar with the area will appreciate constant references to the Bay Area, as well as creatively conjured world of the Council who quietly works within human affairs to keep a balance of justice.
