Praise for King Shaka

King Shaka: Zulu Legend stays as close as reasonably possible to what is empirically known about Shaka, his allies, his rivals, and his enemies, in spite of limited, incomplete, and often biased primary sources from the era. An extensive “The Story Continues” postscript teaches the reader more about Zulu history and culture from Shaka’s time. King Shaka: Zulu Legend is an exciting read about a strong-willed ruler who faced enormous challenges, and thoroughly engrossing from cover to cover. Highly recommended, as is the previous graphic novel in this two-part series, Shaka Rising.” —Midwest Book Review

“Authentically enlightening and entertaining.” —Kirkus Reviews
