You Should Read It!

 So you loved Black Panther and maybe read the comics by Nnedi Okraforand are looking for more. You should look for Who Fears Death. Okrafor’s storytelling is rich and moving. The first chapter is so dramatic and so full of potential that the reader is compelled to continue.

They journey travels a post-apocalyptic Africa with Onyesonwu, which means “Who Fears Death?” With skin the color of sand and a magical destiny to fulfill, Okrafor nestles the reader alongside Onye as she deals first with social rejection and cultural forces and then, as her powers grow, with something darker. The series has been optioned by HBO for a series with George R. R. Martin producing. It is one of the best Afro-futurist books out there. You should read it.
