Before Wakanda, there was Telassar. 

Before Octavia Butler, NK Jemison, and Nisi Shawl, there was Pauline E. Hopkins.  

When Reuel Briggs, a man hiding his African American identity, discovers that he’s the king of a hidden city in Ethiopia, his mysterious origins are only starting to be revealed. 

Journey through perilous pyramids, haunted manors, and genres ranging from early science fiction to Gothic horror in this turn-of-the-century tale of romance, revenge, and reclamation of humanity lost. 

Hopkins boldly challenged the racist paradigms of her time, and even today’s, when female authors of color are still fighting for recognition within genre fiction. This new edition features a foreword by Diverse Worlds Grant-winning author Eden Royce, shining contemporary light on this hidden gem. 

Venture into the forgotten kingdom of Of One Blood and unearth its treasures for yourself!
