To kick off Black Speculative Fiction Month, I've selected "Amber and the Hidden City" by our own well-known Sword and Soul author, Milton J. Davis.
Reviewer Carole McDonnell says, "Amber and the hidden City is a story about a young teenager who suddenly finds her destiny when she is called from her teenaged life to an ancient African land hidden/cloaked from modern Africa. I can't think of another epic fantasy novel written for tween African-American girls. I think other girls will enjoy it as well. It's a very girlie book which is strange coming from an author who writes pulp Sword and Soul novels about macho male warriors."
Recommended for ages 10 and up, this wonderful fantasy is highly recommended, not just for young girls, but for all readers.
