Spotlight on: The Kingdoms of Savannah by George Dawes Green


George Dawes Green

There are many worlds in this small city: the redoubts of the old guard, the Black neighborhoods, the 39 homeless camps that encircle the city, the tourist district. As my protagonist Morgana Musgrove says: “Savannah’s not just one realm, it’s a great many realms—but they work together to keep us in thrall.”” –George Dawes Green, interview, Celadon Books

What booksellers are saying about The Kingdoms of Savannah

  • I loved The Kingdoms of Savannah. It read like a dark, gothic Conroy novel, concerned as much with the grit of the city as the moonlight and magnolias. The Musgrove family are some rare birds. I really hope Mr. Green is planning to bring them back for more. ―Ashley Warlick from M Judson, Booksellers in Greenville, SC

  • George Dawes Green with poetic language describes the beauty and underbelly of historic Savannah while entangling the reader with questions about the Stone Kings Treasure and what the mystery has to do with the death of Luke Kitchens and the disappearance of Stony. Morgana’s granddaughter Jaq courageously uncovers the mysteries the reader will long remember.   ―Nancy Pierce from Bookmiser, Inc. in Marietta, GA

  • This lushly written thriller takes the reader inside Savannah…the good, the bad, and the unseen ugly. George Dawes Green introduces us to an extensive cast of eclectic, eccentric and in some cases downright scary characters that paint a picture of a Savannah that the casual tourist will never see. This is a compelling and intriguing story that will keep the reader up all night as you untangle the twists and turns to the very end. If you have been intrigued by the culture and history of the deep south, you owe it to yourself to experience this unique look at an all too possible fictional story with a strong dose of history intertwined.   ―Brent Bunnell from Fiction Addiction in Greenville, SC

  • I’m a bit of a dummy with the attention span of a gnat hopped up on skittles & too much coffee, I need my history lessons in the form of fiction tinged with truth. HOLY COW does this deliver! The verbiage could use a slight adjustment in places. Looking forward to putting this novel in peoples hands and heads.   ―Berkley McDaniel from Reclaimed Bookstore DBA Chop Suey Books in Richmond, VA
