內容簡介


2015年曼布克獎得主Marlon James繼獲獎作品A Brief History of Seven Killings之後的第一本小說,也是《黑暗之星》(Dark Star Trilogy)三部曲的首部。奇幻文學大師尼爾.蓋曼盛讚,James所創造的奇幻世界可與《魔戒》作者托爾金相比。

“那個孩子死了,且死因不明。”

Tracker是個獵人,他善於追蹤的名聲響徹13個王國,而且他總是單獨行動。但是當他受雇於尋找一個失蹤的男孩時,卻打破了自己的鐵律,因為他發現自己只是一群搜捕者當中的一員,他們要尋找的是同一個男孩。這群獵者不熟悉彼此,從巨人、女巫、到一個可變化身形的花豹,他們一個比一個還要危險,而且都有自己的秘密。

這群雜牌軍從散發香氣的堡壘,昆蟲出沒的河流,一直到中了魔法的黑暗之地,屢屢遭到意圖毀滅他們的各種生物的攻擊。Tracker開始懷疑,這個神秘男孩到底是誰,為什麼有那麼多人阻止男孩被尋獲,而最重要的,誰說的是真話,而誰又在說謊?

Marlon James描繪出融合了非洲神話、奇幻與歷史的豐富傳統,想像出一個遠古的世界,一名失蹤的男孩,一個非凡的獵人,以及隱藏了許多答案的秘密。令人屏息的冒險,發生在一個古老卻又現代的世界,奇幻與暴力的幕後,作者要探索的是真相的律則、權力的界線、過度的野心,以及了解它們的必要。

'Black Leopard, Red Wolf is the kind of novel I never realized I was missing until I read it. A dangerous, hallucinatory, ancient Africa, which becomes a fantasy world as well-realized as anything Tolkien made, with language as powerful as Angela Carter's. I cannot wait for the next installment' Neil Gaiman

In this stunning follow-up to his Man Booker-winning A Brief History of Seven Killings, Marlon James draws on a rich tradition of African mythology, fantasy and history to imagine an ancient world, a lost child, an extraordinary hunter, and a mystery with many answers...

'The child is dead. There is nothing left to know.'

Tracker is a hunter, known throughout the thirteen kingdoms as one who has a nose - and he always works alone. But he breaks his own rule when, hired to find a lost child, he finds himself part of a group of hunters all searching for the same boy. Each of these companions is stranger and more dangerous than the last, from a giant to a witch to a shape-shifting Leopard, and each has secrets of their own.

As the mismatched gang follow the boy's scent from perfumed citadels to infested rivers to the enchanted darklands and beyond, set upon at every turn by creatures intent on destroying them, Tracker starts to wonder: who really is this mysterious boy? Why do so many people want to stop him being found? And, most important of all, who is telling the truth and who is lying?

Marlon James weaves a tapestry of breathtaking adventure through a world at once ancient and startlingly modern. And, against this exhilarating backdrop of magic and violence, he explores the fundamentals of truth, the limits of power, the excesses of ambition, and our need to understand them all.

Black Leopard, Red Wolf is the first novel in Marlon James's Dark Star Trilogy.
