    Africa at its finest.

    « I received a digital ARC of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an unbiased review. » DOMINION is an anthology of speculative fiction written by Black authors all over the diaspora, and is the book I didn't know I needed. One word to describe these stories? Rich. All of them are. The reading experience felt like if I sat near a fire in the wild, listening to griots telling stories and playing instruments at the same time. Even the science-fiction aspects —that I'm not usually a fan of— were well executed here. As anyone would expect, the world was diverse, characters multi-dimensional and unique. The story that I liked the most was THE UNCLEAN by Nuzo Onoh. That piece was mindblowing, and I still think about it weeks after I finished it. Along with the other stories, it's really demonstrative of the spectacular similarities between African cultures. I'm giving it 4.5 out of 5 stars, because sometimes it was a bit difficult to follow some of the stories, but that's understandable. Conveying a lot of information in a short piece is hard, which is why the flow can be a little less fluid than in a full-length novel. Overall this was a great anthology, with excellent stories that more people should read. It screams African authenticity, and I recommend it to people that wish to dive in those particular themes, and to all people of African descent that wish to rediscover themselves.
