I read most of this book on a plane and was so engrossed that I literally screamed "NO!" when the pilot announced that we were landing because I only had 40 pages left and I was NOT READY to put it down. Wholly original with a magic system based in African mythology, this new fantasy book needs to be at the top of everyone's TBR list.. The complicated characters, driving plot, and social commentary will keeps us talking for quite a while. -Emelie
