My Book Review of The Black Pages (Black Stars #2)

The Black Pages by Nnedi Okorafor
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Captavating Mix of Time & Belief

A blend of modern with mysticism… clashing cultures, generations, and faiths. What a truly memorizing tale.

What I liked was the current events woven into traditions, which tied into the importance of books. It’s an original concept and very captavating. The whole concept sucked me into the story – layers of life like multimeters. Hmmm… so much to ponder.

What I disliked… I can’t really say without spoilers. Let me be a vague as I can while still answering this question – you only get to see a glimpse of the picture. There’s so much left out of the frame. I hate feeling like the story is incomplete because there’s more to be told. Of course, what was told… well done!

If you enjoy reading unsolved mysteries, occult, alternative history, or just enjoy magic, myth, and lore, you’ll love this short. It’s a fast read, which will hold you from cover to cover.
