No matter what the people of Wakanda do, they can't save them. And their supply is running short.

So if you scrolled down all those books (sorry not sorry!) welcome to my mini review of Death of a Cheerleader, Shuri, Path of Night and Daughter of Chaos
These are perfect if you are a fan of the Netflix / Marvel Series and are obsessed with RiverDale, Sabrina and Marvel. Or just want to get a bit extra on those universes. If that is the case all you need do is pull up a chair and you will find a great way to escape through the summer months and beyond.
These were extremely easy books to read and once I started I could not put down. From page one I was thrown into the story and needed to know the end. For me you do need to watched the series that these are based on to really get in the mood of the story. However it is not essential.
So will you be picking up Death of a Cheerleader, Shuri, Path of Night and Daughter of Chaos?
