Shuri is a genius when it comes to technology, and deserves a lot more credit than her mom and big brother (who happens to be the Black Panther and King of Wakanda) give her credit for. Shuri manages to get away from her mother's grip long enough to sneak out of the country, test out her invisible flying panther mobile, and save Wakanda while she's at it. This novel is fun, fast paced, and you don't have to be familiar with other Black Panther comics or the movie to enjoy it! ( )

This book is cute and fun, although it takes awhile to get off the ground. I might have enjoyed it more as a graphic novel. Still, fans of Shuri should read this book and rejoice that she is smart and feisty. Looking forward to seeing where this shero heads next! ( )

I preordered this long before release and didn’t realize it was a middle-grade novel until I received it. I’m in my forties, so my five stars are based on the target age group, not an adult audience.

Like nearly all of the Marvel novels, this one has a popular character from the MCU, but is firmly set in the Marvel Universe, not the film one. Here, T’Challa has been King and Black Panther for a while. Shuri is much younger, but still a scientific genius. A genius who chafes from the restrictions placed on her as a Princess and from being treated as a child by the Queen Mother and T’Challa. She is instantly relatable to tweens, and also a good role model with her curiosity, love for family and love of science.

As an adult I found the first half slow as Shuri struggles to be taken seriously by the adults, and the ending was rushed. I didn’t deduct any stars because this is still is a fun adventure story. Shuri investigates why the heart-shaped herb is suddenly dying, uncovers a plot against Wakanda and forms a bond with her Dora Milaje-in-training K’Marah. Along the way, she visits with a certain famous mutant “goddess” from Kenya and created a new Panther suit for her brother.

Shuri is a great protagonist (and role model) that I hope gets more adventures. Highly recommended. ( )
