Staff Picks (March): Malika - Warrior Queen Part Two
Mar 18, 2018
The YouNeek Youniverse is expanding with the release of Malika -Warrior Queen Part 2 this May! Set in fifteenth-century West Africa, Malika - Warrior Queen follows the exploits of queen and military commander Malika, who struggles to keep the peace in her ever-expanding empire.
In the second volume of the graphic novel series, Malika uncovers that not all of her supposed allies feel she is capable to control the Azzazian Empire, leading to a painful betrayal by one of the people closest to her. The treachery unnerves a usually stoic and composed Malika, allowing her enemies both known and unknown, internal as well as external, to encircle her, positioning themselves for the destruction of Azzaz, the empire she spent her entire adult life building. Can Malika recompose herself and save her people once again? Or is this betrayal the beginning of the end for Malika and the people of Azzaz? Only time will tell.
Nigerian native and author Roye Okpue brings his love, respect, and rich knowledge of African history and legends in this intrepid follow up to 2017’s Malika Warrior Queen (MAY172065). Featuring stunning artwork designed once again by Chima Kalu and Raphael Kazeem, Malika Warrior Queen Part Two is a 144-page symphony for the eyes. This next chapter in the YouNeek Youniverse if the perfect book to pick up for returning fans and new readers alike.
