What I'm Reading: Nnedi Okorafor

Akata Warrior

I'm glad to see fantasy rooted in the culture and the spirit of Africa--in this case, Nigeria, contemporary and mythical. I particularly enjoyed the way Okorafor intertwined a  portrayal of the life of well-to-do urban Nigerians with mythical elements, real and fantastical.

Also, as someone who pays attention to these things, the book has a wonderful cover.
