Black Panther: World of Wakanda
Black Panther: World of Wakanda Vol. 1: Dawn of the Midnight Angels - Ta-Nehisi Coates,Roxane Gay,Yona Harvey,Alitha Martinez,Afua Richardson

When I first started the Black Panther run by Ta-Nehisi Coates, Ayo and Aneka, two members of the Dora Milaje quickly became the best part of the series for me. So to get a book with a large focus on the two of them was a great surprise. The fact that Roxane Gay wrote this made it even better.

 

World of Wakanda put the focus on several members of the Dora Milaje from new recruits to veterans as they trained, warded off attacks on Wakanda, and slowly began to question Black Panther and whether he truly was putting Wakanda's interests first. There was a lot of inner conflict for the characters to deal with, and I loved seeing each of them struggle to figure out how to honor their oaths while still doing what they thought was right.

 

And I just really love Ayo and Aneka. It was nice seeing the start of their relationship and its progression. This book gave me better context for what they're doing and why in the Black Panther series. I now want another book or two (or more) of their adventures.

 

The only part I didn't like of this book was the very last issue which switched to a story about White Tiger. While I'm sure I've read stuff with White Tiger in it, I didn't remember much about him beyond that he existed, so it didn't help that his story kept referencing things in his past that I wasn't familiar with. This issue read more like a generic superhero story that was completely different from the previous issues. It just felt out of place with the rest of the book.

 

Despite the last issue, World of Wakanda was excellent. It gave a closer look at some of the most fascinating characters from the Black Panther series and made me want more of them.

Excerpt: YA BOUND BOOK TOUR BLOG

Nyx murmured, “Except there is no one left. The monarchy was built on the Fae’s name, but who is left of that line? Emory is gone. There is no one to oppose him other than us.”
Nei, Roque…Emory. The Academy had been created by the Fae’s to allow a place where humans who had powerful abilities could train and form a government based on equality and prosperity. They were Kiero’s guardians and maintained the balance. That was until Adair had set the world on fire and tipped the scales forever.
Brokk locked eyes with his Commander and knew he was definitely going to be sick. Slightly gasping, “Excuse me,” he scrambled out of the room into the hallway, gulping the damp air. Black spots danced in his vision, threatening to take over. Brokk heard a shuffle of feet and the clicking of the door, then Memphis was standing over him, arms crossed and whispering with venom in his voice, “Pull yourself together Brokk. It’s too obvious that something is wrong.”
Brokk stood up with force, making the world tilt. “We have to tell them. It’s been too long and nothing is getting better. It’s time to make a difference. She could be our difference.”
Brokk knew it was a low blow as Memphis retorted, “You don’t think I realize that as well? But how is everyone going to react when their leaders have kept this a secret for six years? There will be an uprising.”
“The Rebellion will see reason. We start with the team and then go from there. We start with our friends. We owe them that much.”
Memphis ran a hand through his hair, dark circles burning under his eyes. Loosening a breath, he looked to Brokk. “We do this together.”
Brokk stepped closer to his friend, softly saying, “Always.”
Keeping a firm hold on his churning breakfast, he reentered Command knowing that when he came out, everything will have changed.

Black Dawn (Titan, #6)Black Dawn by Cristin Harber
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Parker Black and Lexi Dare have more than her fiance in common. Except he is abusive and she is trying to get away from him. They both have a love of computers and all things "hacker" in common too.

Parker has been attracted to Lexi for some time. If she had not been engaged to his friend, he would have already asked her out. After seeing him be rough and abusive, he wants nothing to do with his friend and to only take care of Lexi.

Lexi and Parker have both been hurt in the past. Neither is sure they want to have a relationship where pain can be a factor. Lexi has trouble trusting after what she has been through. Parker has many secrets and is worried about bringing her into "his world".

When Parker is hired as his hacking alter ego to protect Lexi's at an auction the truth comes out. Hard to face truths come out with it. Can each forgive the other as they reach out and try to trust again?

Lots of explosive action and steamy scenes make this another Titan best. This is book # 6 in the series, and the author shows no sign of slowing down. I enjoyed the characters interaction and the story keeps you seriously on your toes!
