內容簡介

  扣人心弦、張力十足,他創造了一個深邃廣闊的文學宇宙……
  與托爾金筆下的奇幻世界相媲美,華麗殘暴如冰與火之歌

  2015年曼布克獎得主新作,黑暗之星三部曲系列首集


  「謊言即真實,而真實本身是一個不斷流轉、變幻之物。」

  Tracker 以靈敏的嗅覺聞名十三個王國。受雇參與了搜尋一名三年前失蹤至今的男孩的行動,他打破了獨來獨往的習慣,發現自己加入了一個組成複雜的團隊,裡頭充滿了不尋常的人物,包括能改變形體的半獸人Leopard、巨人、女巫等等,他們帶著各自的秘密而來。

  「我希望能找到他,」他們的雇主留下彷彿謎題的訊息:「但一定也有人希望他永遠保持失蹤。」於是,一個謎題後接著無數個謎題……。

  當Tracker循著男孩留下的氣味,來到古老的城市、進入濃密的森林、涉過深河,他和他的同伴們屢次被不知名的生物攻擊,Tracker不經開始懷疑:那個失蹤男孩到底是誰?他為什麼消失了這麼久?為什麼那麼多人試圖阻止Tracker找到他?而在這其中,最重要的問題可能是:誰說的是真相,誰又在說謊?

  融合非洲歷史和神話故事,以及豐富的想像力,Marlon James帶來了一部前所未有的小說:一連串令人屏息、引人入勝的冒險故事,充滿強烈的人物角色。本書既讓人驚喜又富含深度,探詢了真實的根本、力量的極限,以及我們探求這兩者的必要。

  'Black Leopard, Red Wolf is the kind of novel I never realized I was missing until I read it. A dangerous, hallucinatory, ancient Africa, which becomes a fantasy world as well-realized as anything Tolkien made, with language as powerful as Angela Carter's. I cannot wait for the next installment' Neil Gaiman

  In this stunning follow-up to his Man Booker-winning A Brief History of Seven Killings, Marlon James draws on a rich tradition of African mythology, fantasy and history to imagine an ancient world, a lost child, an extraordinary hunter, and a mystery with many answers...


  'The child is dead. There is nothing left to know.'

  Tracker is a hunter, known throughout the thirteen kingdoms as one who has a nose - and he always works alone. But he breaks his own rule when, hired to find a lost child, he finds himself part of a group of hunters all searching for the same boy. Each of these companions is stranger and more dangerous than the last, from a giant to a witch to a shape-shifting Leopard, and each has secrets of their own.

  As the mismatched gang follow the boy's scent from perfumed citadels to infested rivers to the enchanted darklands and beyond, set upon at every turn by creatures intent on destroying them, Tracker starts to wonder: who really is this mysterious boy? Why do so many people want to stop him being found? And, most important of all, who is telling the truth and who is lying?

  Marlon James weaves a tapestry of breathtaking adventure through a world at once ancient and startlingly modern. And, against this exhilarating backdrop of magic and violence, he explores the fundamentals of truth, the limits of power, the excesses of ambition, and our need to understand them all.

  Black Leopard, Red Wolf is the first novel in Marlon James's Dark Star Trilogy.

Review

  A game-changing modern fantasy classic (Financial Times)

  Complex, lyrical, moving and furiously gripping... This new book will propel James into a new galaxy of literary stardom (Observer)

  A fantasy world as well-realized as anything Tolkien made, with language as powerful as Angela Carter's. It's as deep and crafty as Gene Wolfe, bloodier than Robert E. Howard, and all Marlon James... I cannot wait for the next instalment (Neil Gaiman)

  Stand aside, Beowolf. There's a new epic hero slashing his way into our hearts...James is clear-cutting space for a whole new kingdom. Black Leopard, Red Wolf rises up from the mists of time, glistening like viscera. James has spun an African fantasy as vibrant, complex and haunting as any Western mythology (Washington Post)

  A miracle... If Charles R. Saunders' Imaro series opened the door to new ways of telling epic fantasy, and N.K. Jemisin's Inheritance trilogy leapt over the threshold, then Marlon James' Black Leopard, Red Wolf just ripped the whole damn door off its hinges (Tor)

  Marlon James possesses almost frightening levels of talent... His work is wholly original while paying homage to all the important literary ancestors. An archetypal epic for the 21st century (Forbes)

  Smart, genre-bending, fiercely ambitious (The Times)

  One of the most talked-about and influential adventure epics since George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire was transformed into Game of Thrones (Kirkus)

  A sprawling fantasy novel set in a dark age Africa of witches, spirits, dazzling imperial citadels and impenetrable forests (Hari Kunzru Wall Street Journal)

  Black Leopard, Red Wolf heralds the arrival of one of fantasy's next great sagas and reaffirms James as one of the greatest storytellers of his generation (BookPage)
