The first book in a fantasy duology inspired by African folklore.

Karina, a grieving crown princess and Malik, a desperate refugee, find themselves on a course to destroy each other, despite their growing attraction.

“This epic story is brimming with trickster spirits, rich culture, and an organically developing romance that make every twist and turn more interesting than the last ... Brown’s novel will easily fit on shelves next to other great West African–inspired fantasies like Adeyemi’s Children of Blood and Bone and Ifueko’s Raybearer, and the ending makes it apparent that Malik and Karina’s story has (thankfully) only just begun." Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“With the heart-pounding action of Children of Blood and Bone, the magic of Spirited Away, and the twisty alluring intrigue of Game of Thrones, A Song of Wraiths and Ruin is a MASTERPIECE.” Brittney Morris, author of SLAY

Roseanne A. Brown is an immigrant from Ghana currently living outside Washington D.C. A Song of Wraiths and Ruin is her debut novel.
