Driven by the daring of a 16-year-old protagonist who’s guided by the Goddess, Shade Lapite’s Goddess Crown is a richly conjured feminist fantasy set in sumptuous West African- inspired Galla, a patriarchal kingdom that’s long conspired against women.

Kalothia had “lived in the forest for sixteen harvests”, since the day her parents were forced to flee the palace during what was known as the “Great Upset”, after being exposed as enemies of the king. Now, on her 16 th birthday, her home and guardians are attacked by the king’s assassins, and so she journeys to the court. After uncovering monumental truths, Kalothia finds herself at the centre of an opulent royal household that swarms with treachery as she seeks to avenge loved ones’ deaths, and more.

Shot-through with suspense and forbidden love, the writing crackles with energy, and Kalothia — a fearless young woman who exposes how patriarchal teachings have misrepresented the Goddess — is a heroine no reader will forget in a hurry.
