"Woman of the Woods" cover snagged my attention immediately. I predict big things for illustrator, Chase Conley.
The story takes place in Davis' alternate Africa. A forbidden relationship creates a lovechild who would have been condemned to death had anyone in power known. The Shosa, warrior woman, who bore the child sought a safe place for her on a local farm with the young couple who had another child.
Yet there is no safe place for the warrior born. When Sadatina's village is threatened by the enemy, Mosele, her natural abilities come to bear. Sadatina saves a pair of lioness cubs and the trio go out to fight the enemy.
"Woman of the woods" is beautifully written. I found myself lost in an imaginary world, not wanting the book to end. the writing is so evocative it could easily lend itself to film our graphic novels.
While this book is part of a series, it is possible to read it independently of the prior books. However I plan to seek out the rest of the MEJI novels and read them.
