Nnedi Okorafor is remarkable. Her books are unique and filled with new ideas even as she uses elements of Nigerian and world culture and myth. Her characters are fresh and real. Her stories are meaningful, tense, funny, and thoroughly gripping. Akata Warrior, sequel to Akata Witch, is deep and engrossing, fun and thrilling. I'll happily read anything Okorafor writes.

The long-awaited sequel to the genre-breaking Akata Witch by multiple award-winner Nnedi Okorafor
"The most imaginative, gripping, enchanting fantasy novels I have ever read " --Laurie Halse Anderson, New York Times bestselling author of Speak
A year ago, Sunny Nwazue, an American-born girl Nigerian girl, was inducted into the secret Leopard Society. As she began to develop her magical powers, Sunny learned that she had been chosen to lead a dangerous mission to avert an apocalypse, brought about by the terrifying masquerade, Ekwensu. Now, stronger, feistier, and a bit older, Sunny is studying with her mentor Sugar Cream and struggling to unlock the secrets in her strange Nsibidi book.
Eventually, Sunny knows she must confront her destiny. With the support of her Leopard Society friends, Orlu, Chichi, and Sasha, and of her spirit face, Anyanwu, she will travel through worlds both visible and invisible to the mysteries town of Osisi, where she will fight a climactic battle to save humanity.
Much-honored Nnedi Okorafor, winner of the Hugo, Nebula, and World Fantasy awards, merges today's Nigeria with a unique world she creates. Akata Warrior blends mythology, fantasy, history and magic into a compelling tale that will keep readers spellbound.
