Library Journal Review

In the conclusion to Okorafor's Hugo- and Nebula Award-winning trilogy (Binti; Binti: Home), her heroine has returned to her home planet from space and is trying to put the violence of the Meduse behind her. While her people are relatively peaceful, not everyone has forgotten what the Meduse have done. While Binti is away, the Khoush come to her village to find her Meduse comrade Okwu, leaving destruction in their wake. As Binti rushes back with her newest friend Mwinyi, death has already struck too close to home. Hoping to save her people, even though the elders don't trust her new affiliations, Binti tries once again to negotiate a truce between two warring groups. This time, however, it may be too late. Family and friendship remain at the heart of this remarkable trilogy as it comes to a fulfilling close. -VERDICT The worldbuilding here continues to be unparalleled as Okorafor's deliberate yet delicate prose transports readers to a place in the stars once again.-KC © Copyright 2017.
