Black Panther: The Young Prince Read Online Free - Black Panther. Ruler of Wakanda. Avenger.
This is his destiny. But right now, he's simply T'Challa-the young prince.
Life is comfortable for twelve-year-old T'Challa in his home of Wakanda, an isolated, technologically advanced African nation. When he's not learning how to rule a kingdom from his father-the reigning Black Panther-or testing out the latest tech, he's off breaking rules with his best friend, M'Baku. But as conflict brews near Wakanda, T'Challa's father makes a startling announcement: he's sending T'Challa and M'Baku to school in America.
This is no prestigious private academy-they've been enrolled at South Side Middle School in the heart of Chicago. Despite being given a high-tech suit and a Vibranium ring to use only in case of an emergency, T'Challa realizes he might not be as equipped to handle life in America as he thought. Especially when it comes to navigating new friendships while hiding his true identity as the prince of a powerful nation, and avoiding Gemini Jones, a menacing classmate who is rumored to be involved in dark magic.
When strange things begin happening around school, T'Challa sets out to uncover the source. But what he discovers in the process is far more sinister than he could ever have imagined. In order to protect his friends and stop an ancient evil, T'Challa must take on the mantle of a hero, setting him on the path to becoming the Black Panther.

I liked this book it wasn't half bad. Barely making it as a 3-star book (I think I rated it higher on my insta story, but after quick reflection, I brought it down to just 3). It was a fast read, filled with youth. T'Challa and his friend M'Baku are sent to Chicago as exchange students from Keny...

Listen: if you'd handed me this book like 2 years ago I'd have been stoked to have a quality prose novel about a comics character! But it's 2018 and now I'm hella spoiled by like Jason Reynolds' Spider-Man book and Leigh Bardugo's Wonder Woman book, which were amazing! And this one was...fine.

I really wanted to love this. But I was sorely disappointed. Maybe I shouldn't have compared it against Jason Reynold's Miles Morales which is mind blowing. This was very average and predictable. 8 year olds will probably like it but there's no crossover interest for older readers. Boo.

For tween and younger teen Marvel fans, this book is a fast-paced, exciting introduction to the character of Black Panther. It was the first time I'd read anything by Ronald Smith and I thoroughly enjoyed his style of weaving a tale together. I loved all the interactions between T'Challa, M'Baku...

I'm a sucker for a good origin story, and I genuinely couldn't put this one down. I read the whole thing in one sitting. I'm so thrilled that the DBG team brought on Ronald L. Smith for this one. I could not fathom a better novel for the young Black Panther. Marvel fans will love this, and so wil...

Good lawd this book was simply awful. Had great potential to be amazing but the author took the characters out of Wakanda, moved them to Chicago and made up his own story about voodoo and demons.
This was an awful and disrespectful origin story. Why would Marvel approve this??
This was such a letd...

YES. A middle grade novel about an African superhero, written by a Coretta Scott King Award-winning author? ALL THE YES, PLEASE. Ronald L. Smith brings T'Challa to life with this first novel, where we meet the not-quite-yet Black Panther and his best friend, M'Baku, in their homeland, Wakanda. Ul...
