Ashay says, "My son is a Kemetian bookaholic and loves all books on the genre. He suggested I add Shades of Memnon and says it is a powerful epic tale surrounding a great African hero. I say, it is great to see fantasy adventure stories written by and about African people. Ones that will engage young readers and keep them hungry for more. This is the first book in the triology. Kudos to Griot Gregory Walker for creating such fine literature. Must have for the classroom and library!"
