The Start of a Great Series! - By Julie Sara Porter
There are few female authors in the fantasy genre space – and there are even fewer women of color who create and publish their own epic worlds. But J.J. Excelsior brings her own voice and perspective with a special twist on traditional fantasy story. Her premiere novel, World Shaken: Guardians of the Zodiac I, is an epic dive into a cosmic world that can only be saved by an unlikely union of guardians – each representing one of the twelve zodiac signs.
With an innovative and rare spin on the fantasy genre, Excelsior brings more readers into the fantasy genre by introducing us to characters from traditionally underrepresented groups. In a way rarely seen before in the genre, Excelsior’s debut novel centers around a multicultural, inclusive cast of characters who are fantastical yet approachable for readers. Through a unique narrative voice and sixteen full-page illustrations, we dive into Excelsior’s new world and discover a powerful cast of characters that navigate a diverse world at war only to learn they must find strength together.
