Lenni Reviews: “Black” by Kwanza Osajyefo and Jamal Igle

*This book was sent to me in exchange for an honest review.

In this what if story, humans start developing various superpowers. But only black people.

I really wanted to like this but I think this book was trying to tell too many stories in too short a time. We follow Kareem as our introduction to this world and several interesting concepts are shown to us through him but WAY too many of them and WAY too many characters. Kareem meets one team, then there are prisoners, then there’s another team, then there are rebels, then there are agents of the government involved, then they’re fighting, and then I am confused. I mean WOW what a premise but it needs more time to show it’s full potential. As it is I have to give it around a 2.7 but man, if the creators here reissue this story in a more detailed way? I am totally down.

Man would I like to see how they would approach multiracial people… How much “Black” do you have to get to develop powers? Do you get muted powers? Is the manifestation of powers what eliminates the ability to pass? Hey, contact me, authors. I have some ideas… XD
