Descripción: In this much anticipated follow up to New York Times bestselling Beasts of Prey, Koffi’s powers grow stronger and Ekon’s secrets turn darker as they face the god of death.After having promised to use her new powers to serve Fedu, the cunning god of death, and assist in his plans to remake the world, Koffi finds herself a prisoner in Thornkeep—a luxurious mansion with well-manicured gardens. But Fedu’s beautiful realm is a lie. Koffi and many other darajas are trapped there by a deadly, inscrutable mist, making escape impossible. But something within the mist calls to Koffi, igniting her magic. It soon becomes clear that the very thing imprisoning her could be the key to not only her freedom, but finally unlocking the remaining mysteries of her own magic, allowing her to fight the god of death and perhaps even win.While Koffi attempts to decipher the secrets of the mist and learns to wield her own deadly power, Ekon is determined to make his way to Thornkeep to fight alongside her. But leaving Lkossa is easier said than done. Ekon, once a promising soldier, is now a wanted man on the run from those he once called brother. He’s forced to make new, uneasy alliances to flee Lkossa and turn his back on everything he once believed. And each day he draws closer to the realm of death, so too does Ekon draw nearer to a long-hidden truth about himself that could change his loyalties forever.Koffi and Ekon—separated by both land and gods—risk everything to reunite. But the longer they’re apart, the more they will have to reckon with changing destinies and, maybe, changing hearts.ReviewPraise for Beasts of Ruin:“This stellar sequel deepens these beautifully realized main characters and keeps you wanting more stories in this world.” —Buzzfeed★ “Readers will be entranced as themes of heritage, betrayal, and erasure are brought to life with vivid details in this riveting, fast-paced volume that lives up to its predecessor. . . An absorbing story with tantalizing hints of more to come.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review“Gray’s lush and detailed worldbuilding remains a highlight as the sequel delves even deeper into the history and heritage of Lkossa and its surrounding kingdom.” —Paste Magazine“Well-crafted and engaging. . . Beasts of Prey and Beasts are Ruin are riveting reads that should hold great appeal for teenage readers, especially fans of Black Panther and The Hunger Games.” —The Atlanta Journal-Constitution“Beasts of Ruin, like its predecessor, is filled with action and tension. There are fights, spells, chases, twists, betrayals, a wicked villain and fantastical creatures throughout the novel’s short, punchy chapters. She weaves African myths and legends of frightening creatures like the kongamato into her narrative, and explores the impact of discrimination and cultural erasure.” —Arkansas Democrat Gazette“[A] tale of courage, curiosity, and magic.”—SHEEN Magazine“Gray returns to her captivating world of beasts, secrets, and vengeful gods in this follow-up. . . boast[ing] a more expansive world… Readers who easily lost themselves in Koffi and Ekon’s story will devour their continued journey. . . An engaging sequel gearing up for an explosive third book.” —BooklistPraise for Beasts of Prey:An Instant New York Times BestsellerAn Indie BestsellerA 2022 Bank Street Best Children’s Book of the YearA 2022 YALSA Best Fiction for Young Adults PickA 2021 Kirkus Best BookA 2021 New York Public Library Best Book PickA 2021 Chicago Public Library Best Book PickA 2021 Young Adult Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror Best Book PickA 2021 Parade Best YA Book PickA 2021 Black Caucus American Library Association Best of the Best Booklist PickAn Apple Best Book of the Month Pick – October 2021An Amazon Best Book of the Month – October 2021An Indie Next Pick“Rich and powerful.” —O, The Oprah Magazine"The hunt for your next YA fantasy book trilogy obsession has ended." —Entertainmen
