First of all, I really liked this book! It is perfect for these stressful times, since it's a lighthearted adventure, but still with a message.

Aided by a man named Adap, she must face off against corrupt shaman and bizarre creatures as she makes the perilous journey. Paris’ world was intriguing, as were the characters, but it was the deeper emotional issues that really drew me in! Paris touches on issues many black and trans people face, and i ...more

Deeply thoughtful, responsive to the times, and fantastically enthralling, Raven Nothing captures the fluid and vivid intersectionality of gender, race, place and the lessons we as human beings have yet to learn from our past. Raven's rich story normalizes the presence of identities historically left out of fantasy literature, while simultaneously and gracefully laying the darkest parts of our collective "phobias" and "isms" out in the open to be examined and challenged. A beautiful work, I had ...more

Paris was born in Oklahoma to a pair of travelling preachers who carried her on their missions around the world, inadvertently making of her an ardent internationalist. From southern Africa to the Middle East, the Soviet Union, and around the U.S., she ran away to Australia after high school and ran out of money studying tropical ecology, eventually surviving by living in a tree.
