Editorial Reviews

Review

“Okorafor triumphs over the perils of the prequel by making the inevitable feel newly dreadful. Blending poetic passages with sharp observation and the occasional cadence of a story told by firelight, The Book of Phoenix is an assured introduction not just to her world's myths, but to the process of mythmaking.” —The New York Times

“A gripping examination of the power of myth and of who is allowed to write and preserve history.... Okorafor’s fantastical The Book of Phoenix has that ring of truth, a superlative adventure that addresses all-too-harsh realities.” —The San Francisco Chronicle

“Okorafor's inventiveness is as stunning as ever, and the ending is nothing short of spectacular.” —The Chicago Tribune

“Phoenix and her story exist in that shimmering space that marks where science fiction and magical realism overlap.... The Book of Phoenix hit all of my emotional checkboxes.”—BookRiot

The Book of Phoenix isn’t just well written, and it isn’t just smart as hell; it’s also a damn good story, and it kept me reading almost nonstop all the way through.”—Tor.com

“The book is grounded by its unflinching exposure of the brutalities of colonialism, racism, and greed, and exalted by the beauty of Okorafor’s prose.” —Library Journal (starred review)

“This is a story of vengeance, a fantastic epic battle between good and evil; written as a fable for the future.” —Barnes & Noble Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog

“While the grim logic of the plot makes it very clear early on how the plot must play out, the process is as entrancing as watching an avalanche sweep toward you, and Okorafor’s prose is as ever, enthralling.”—RT Reviews
