King T'Challa faces unrest throughout his high-tech realm of Wakanda. Led partly by two renegade soldiers of the king's elite female bodyguards, the people seek no longer to be governed by "one man" but by elected representatives. Three-dimensional characters plus universal political and philosophical questions from National Book Award winner Coates (Between the World and Me) drive the plot in compelling directions. Stelfreeze's beautiful art blends African elements with futuristic designs. Teens and adults. (LJ Xpress Reviews, 10/27/16)
