New York, NY, November 14, 2022 –(– Midwest Book Review, an organization committed to promoting literacy, library use, and the small press, has released rave reviews on the first two books in the Black Camelot series published by the publisher Independent Fero Scitus.

The books reviewed are “The Publisher’s Dilemma: A Big City Tale of Power, Privilege & Murder” and “Black Camelot’s Dawn & The Return of Madame Hot Temper”.

The Black Camelot series developed by African-American fictional novelist Darius Myers is set in the fast-paced world of New York high society. The saga follows two African Americans who find themselves at the helm of the largest family media company in the world.

As they take control, the two become the darlings of the town after famous journalists name them and their equally successful friends, the Black Camelots of Gotham. It’s a royal status that doesn’t go down well. Legendary white racist groups embark on Gotham to end the era of Black Camelot.

“The Publisher’s Dilemma” and “Black Camelot’s Dawn” are the first two books in Myers’ book series. The author is a former senior media executive who worked at blue chip media companies, Time Inc., USA Today, Tribune, Hachette over a career spanning three decades. Black Camelot’s novels three and four Days of War and Black Camelot’s Dazed by Death are also published under the independent label Fero Scitus. The fifth book in the series, Black Camelot’s Secrets and Skeletons will be released on February 15, 2023.

The suspenseful series began with shootings and murders at the world’s biggest media company. It is the most dramatic police and media event of the decade. The investigation introduces readers to the scandal and dark secrets of the legendary media family and the rivalries that implode it.

The author has created a fascinating collection of character groups and places them in a 21st world filled with greed, envy, hidden agendas, secret societies, assassins, warriors, romance and drama that incite readers to turn the pages. The Black Camelots have entered this world and are given power and a mission. As they embrace the power, so does the action, adventure, and suspenseful thrills for fans of the series.

“Readers fell in love with the characters from the first story and insisted that I bring them back. They want to know more about the black male characters Donald Alexander and Kwame Mills. They are also drawn to the abandoned Madame Hot Temper as a role strong female lead and the other compelling female character. Finally, the Celebrity Hack Patrol roles took on a life of their own. They’re key characters on the show,” Myers said.

TPD Review: “The Editor’s Dilemma: A Tale of Privilege, Power, and Big City Murder” lives up to its title as a sensational crime thriller. The mystery begins with a deadly attack on the executives of a prestigious media company, immediately after the company took steps towards more racial diversity. Unraveling the tangled threads of motives, sordid secrets, greed and corruption is a deadly undertaking, in this saga of violence and conspiracy. The Publisher’s Dilemma is highly recommended for connoisseurs of the genre! It’s worth noting for personal reading lists that The Publisher’s Dilemma is also available in a Kindle edition ($5.01).

‘Black Camelot’s Dawn’ Review: The sequel to The Publisher’s Dilemma, Black Camelot’s Dawn is a high-octane mystery thriller, set in a city infested with age-old white supremacist groups. The survivors of the Publisher’s Dilemma have become so wealthy from the sale of their media company that they are dubbed “Black Camelots” – and scarred to death by fanatics who abhor the metaphorical concept of black royalty. Dawn Davis Stuart, nicknamed “Madame Hot Temper” because of the murder of her husband (a more complex situation than the scandal reported by the tabloids), returns to the city just as news of upcoming weddings and threats of murder surface. Filled with excitement and twisted intrigue, Black Camelot’s Dawn keeps the reader enthralled until the last page and comes highly recommended. It’s worth noting for personal reading lists that Black Camelot’s Dawn is also available in a Kindle Edition ($5.99).
