Praise

Raves for Nnedi Okorafor’s Writing

“Nnedi Okorafor writes glorious futures and fabulous fantasies. Her characters take your heart and squeeze it, her worlds open your mind to new things, always rooted in the red clay of reality.”—Neil Gaiman, Newbery Award-winning author of The Graveyard Book

“There’s more imagination on a page of Nnedi Okorafor’s work than in whole volumes of ordinary fantasy epics.”—Ursula K. Le Guin, award-winning author of A Wizard of Earthsea

“The most imaginative, gripping, enchanting fantasy novels I have ever read!”—Laurie Halse Anderson, National Book Award finalist and New York Times bestselling author of Speak

“I always loved science fiction, but I didn’t feel I was part of it—until I read first Octavia Butler, and now Nnedi Okorafor.”—Whoopi Goldberg

“Highly original stuff, episode after amazing episode, full of color, life, and death. Nnedi Okorafor’s work is wonderful!”—Diana Wynne Jones, award-winning author of The Chronicles of Chrestomanci

“Jam-packed with mythological wonders.”—Rick Riordan, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series

“Okorafor’s imagination is stunning.”—The New York Times Book Review

“A marvelous and uplifting read, heartwarming in its portrayal of true friendship, heartbreaking in its portrayal of headstrong youth and the perils of pride.”—Cory Doctorow, award-winning author of Little Brother

“Fresh, original, and smart. We need more writers like her.”—Patrick Rothfuss, author of The Name of the Wind

“Nnedi Okorafor is opening doors into strange and beautiful new worlds. Her heroes are beguiling, her magic firmly rooted in real places and real things. Rich, mysterious, and convincing, Akata Witch takes fantasy in a haunting new direction.”—Jonathan Stroud, New York Times bestselling author of The Bartimaeus Trilogy

“The voice of Nnedi Okorafor does not obey the rules of distance, time, or place. Hers is the voice that fuses matter and imagination. She shows us just how close we are to that alternate reality.”—Tchidi Chikere, Nigerian award-winning film director and screenwriter
