Praise

A New York Times Bestseller!

“Okorafor draws a rich, vibrant world that’s brimming with magic, complex characters, and lush settings. Sunny’s journey is loaded with compelling mysteries and twists that will leave readers on the edge of their seats.”
Booklist

“Okorafor centers African mythology, Nigerian culture, history, food, and phrases into this beautifully written fantasy featuring all Black characters. This lyrical Afrocentric fantasy is not to be missed.”
School Library Journal

“An engrossing addition to a thoughtful coming-of-age series.”
Kirkus Reviews

“With Akata Woman, Okorafor does what she does best, drawing on African mythology and folklore, being free with her rhythm and language, telling a classic hero’s journey set far from the Western canon of fantasy, while always staying readable, aware, intelligent and playful.”
