Good news! You can finally stop holding your breath. Because we’re ready to share the first plot synopsis and cover for Serwa Boateng’s Guide to Witchcraft and Mayhem.
This highly-anticipated follow up to Serwa Boateng’s Guide to Vampire Hunting from best-selling author Roseanne A. Brown is set to hit stores on 9/12/23. Check out the synopsis below!
After a lifetime of fighting creatures of black magic, twelve-year-old Serwa Boateng has just learned a devastating secret about herself. Now she’s on the run from the organization of Slayers she trained her whole life to join.
Serwa’s only ally is her aunt Boahinmaa, an obayifo who urges Serwa to embrace black magic. Boahinmaa and her underlings are on the hunt for the Midnight Drum, from which they hope to free Serwa’s grandmother. When they learn that the Abomofuo have hidden the Midnight Drum deep within the Smithsonian Museum of African Art in Washington, D.C., what do they do? Stage a heist to steal it, of course!
For their plan to succeed, Serwa will have to get close to her rival, a Slayer named Declan Amankwah, without revealing her aunt’s plot. Declan gets under her skin like no one else . . . and might just force Serwa to confront some truths she’s tried hard to deny.
With both sympathy and laugh-out-loud humor, Rosanne A. Brown captures all the discomfort of a girl stuck between two worlds in this second book in the unputdownable Serwa Boating saga.
