Akata Warrior

Sunny's story continues

If you haven't started the Akata Witch series yet, I cannot implore you to read it enough! It's an incredibly imaginative world filled with magic, wonder and danger. Nnedi Okorafor can tell a story, and I love how she doesn't mince words when it comes to just how perilous it is to be a leopard person in the books. I've just finished Akata Warrior, the sequel to Akata Witch (now that the semester's in full bloom I get to read while waiting for The Kid during activities!), and cannot wait until the third book is published. (There's no date yet.)

In the sequel, Sunny faces even more dangers in terms of spirits as well as dangerous humans like a gang her brother falls in with at university. Her courage is so inspiring and I love to watch her follow through even when it's hard and sure to result in consequences she won't enjoy. There's a little more Sunny/Orlu goodness, too, if you think they're as cute as I do and enjoy their 'ship, but it's really the learning and growth of Sunny and her friends that is so beautiful to read.

What are you reading this week?
