Scarlet Odyssey by C.T. Rwizi
Drawing on the stories he heard growing up in Swaziland, debut author C.T. Rwizi has created a culturally rich and compelling new fantasy world in Scarlet Odyssey. Rwizi's central character Salo defies the expectations placed on him by his tribe in order to nurture his magical instincts in a world where men are warriors and women are mystics. When his village is attacked by an enchantress, Salo finds himself embarking on a quest to become a mystic, with a band of fellow outcasts at his side.
