Spectacular addition both to fantasy canon and to conversations about race -- spectacular because there are so many themes packed into the book, but even more so because they don't bog the fast -moving plot or the world building down. It's very much in the tradition of great science fiction and fantasy of the past, where the writer creates a space to try out ideas and see where their logical conclusions go. It's also a traditional quest book, with characters that provoke strong emotion.I'm very interested to see where it goes next. Every time I think I can see the path, something twists. ( )

Whenever I listen to an audiobook and like it, I wonder whether the narrator had something to do with it. I realized, though, that the storytelling needs to be good as well. Bahni Turpin read this fantasy superbly complementing the excellent storytelling of the book. The ending...oh dear, what does it mean?? ( )

This is the first time in a long while I’ve read a book straight through in one sitting. This is a great book, with a gripping plot and I particularly enjoyed the fantastically engaging worldbuilding. The characters are well rounded and you understand their motivations and fears clearly (with the possible exception of Inan, who I mostly want to smack, and whose changes in loyalty happen a bit too quickly to be believable). Overall though, I would highly recommend this book ( )

I've struggled with this review, because in all fairness, I didn't finish the book. Maybe it got WAY BETTER. I'm really surprised by how much love this book has gotten. It felt like a Nigerian Twilight - which is maybe why it was so popular. The language was overwrought, the characters made irrational choices at every step and the plot couldn't pick a pace. Overall, disappointed and bored. ( )

One of the richest fantasy worlds I've read in a long time. What excellent thematic parallels to draw to current events as I live in the US in 2018. I'm only sad I read this so close to when it was released because I have to wait too long for the next one. ( )

Digesting volumes of brutal and downtrodden images can be dangerous. It can lead to despair, paralysis, and/or self-fulfilling prophecies of further demise. Millions of people are ordinarily numb to the fact that hyper-violence and wretched Africanized worlds are hallmarks of modern media (esp. Hollywood), and accept it wholesale. Remarkably though, Adeyemi inserts a critical lifeline into this abyss–the concept that the Gods of one’s own ancestors (in this case the Orisha) provide salvation unlike any other.
 
If a “Black Lives Matter–inspired fantasy novel” sounds like an ungainly hybrid—a pitch gone wrong—think again... The creator of a mythical land called Orïsha, Adeyemi taps into a rich imaginative lineage as she weaves West African mythology into a bespoke world that resonates with our own.

I try not to think of her.
But when I do, I think of rice.
When mama was around, the hut always smelled of jollof rice.
I think about the way her dark skin glowed like the summer sun, the way her smile made Baba come alive. The way her white hair fuzzed and coiled, an untamed crown that breathed and thrived.
I hear the myths she would tell me at night. Tzain's laughter when they played agbon in the park.
Baba's cries as the soldiers wrapped a chain around her neck. Her screams as they dragged her into the dark.
The incantations that spewed from her mouth like lava. The magic of death that led her astray.
I think about the way her corpse hung from that tree.
I think about the king who took her away.
