Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1 ):

Readers love fantasies that don't skimp on the world-building details, and this Afrocentric adventure provides plenty of rich material to delve into. Author Jordan Ifueko avoids the sophomore slump with a sequel that both ups the ante and delivers a satisfying ending. Tarisai is a compelling protagonist -- headstrong, principled, and passionate -- and Ifueko surrounds her with a unique supporting cast of outcasts and near-gods. Redemptor is the sequel Ifueko's fans have been waiting for. It will be interesting to see where she goes next.
