"Since leaving his homeland, the earthbound demigod Demane has been labeled a sorcerer. With his ancestors' artifacts in hand, the Sorcerer follows the Captain, a beautiful man with song for a voice and hair that drinks the sunlight. The two of them are the descendants of the gods who abandoned the Earth for Heaven, and they will need all the gifts those divine ancestors left to them to keep their caravan brothers alive. The one safe road between the northern oasis and southern kingdom is stalked by a necromantic terror. Demane may have to master his wild powers and trade humanity for godhood if he is to keep his brothers and his beloved captain alive"-- Provided by publisher.… (mehr)

Read this after really enjoying "A Taste of Honey" by the same author (5*). I found that the structure and narrative style of this novella was really difficult to read though and I gave up on it part way though. Surprised and a bit sad. ( )

I hope this gets classified as a novella for the Hugos so it doesn't get crushed by The Fifth Season. The mixture of idioms and imagery and cultures and peoples is unlike anything else I've read, if not ever than for longer than I can remember. It works to immediately break and reset your expectations. I don't want to say much about the details, because I found I enjoyed knowing nothing about it when I began. I will say, I am in willful denial about the ending. Except I'm not, of course, because what *seems* to have happened of course did not happen at all. Of course not. Nope. ( )

I haven't read something this original in a long time!

Tight, gorgeous, and brutal. Homoerotic, humane, crushingly moving but utterly unsentimental. The premise as pure a sword-and-sorcery trope as you can get (superstitious and provincial bash-and-slash mercenary company traveling with erudite and sensitive mage-ish outsider far from his homeland), only minus the typical tired faux-Celtic trappings - this world is explicitly African in inspiration and Kai's chorus of pitch-perfect voices are all un-apologetically Black American. And the love story (because it is a love story...just one that contains more skull-smashing and battlefield gangrene than most) is so, so real. Not that any words are wasted on describing the state of being in love; it is just shown, beautifully, in tiny sharp shards of interactions - soul-deep love on the DL between two warriors in an intolerant world. This love story is tender in the way that a rare steak is tender - all bloody muscle and seared outsides, primal, sensual, and raw at the core. This little book is like the Sorcerer Demane's magic bag - physically slender but capable of holding unbelievably vast quantities of content. I can't wait for someone I know to read it so the full unpacking can begin. ( )

*WAVES ARMS* Read this! And if it's anything to go by, go ahead and pre-order all the other Tor.com novellas as well. BUT THIS REVIEW IS ABOUT THIS GLORIOUS BOOK.

"Sumptuous" doesn't really do the language here justice. I read a ton of short fiction with language that I truly enjoy, but nothing novella or novel-length in quite some time. This ended that drought. And the plotting sure isn't bad either (IT'S GODDAMN GREAT). The dialogue is fantastic, the world-building is amazing, and the action is visceral as hell. THE MAGIC IS SCIENCE-Y AND EARTHY. AND THE CHARACTERS! DEMANE. THE CAPTAIN. CUMALO. ALL THE CARAVAN GUARDS. Even the *vague eyebrow waggling* creature, in the same way the shark was a looming background character in Jaws.

"The Devil in America", and Wilson's other short fiction, has been on my list for a while, and I'm about to go on a spree, for sure. ( )
