Haunted by vengeance. Destined for peace.
Niger, West Africa, 2074
When fifteen-year old Ejii witnesses her father’s beheading, her world shatters. In a time of mind-blowing technology and seductive mysticism, Ejii embarks on a journey to track down her father’s killer. With a newfound friend by her side, Ejii comes face to face with an earth turned inside out—and with her own mystical ability. And then she discovers that her travels across the sands of the Sahara have a deeper purpose.
Nnedi Okorafor says this about Shadow Speaker: “An unexpected apocalypse, spontaneous forests, polyandry, strange insects, fast cars, a new type of Sahara Desert, male beauty contests, death, robust chiefs schooled in martial arts, crafty assassins, this novel has many lives.”
Now in an updated edition with a new introduction from the author herself, Shadow Speaker contains the powerful prose and compelling stories that have made Nnedi Okorafor a star of the literary science fiction and fantasy space and put her at the forefront of Africanfuturist fiction.
