Nnedi Okorafor is a Vengeful God


Who Fears Death is a wild combination of fantasy, post-apocalyptic science fiction, and West African mythology. It is about race, genocide, and retribution. It is about the longest war. It is one of the most brutally, terribly real fantasy books I have ever read. There are no fairy godmothers here—no bumbling, comic companions, no neatly-disposed-of villains, no princes in hiding who fall in love with the heroine and get conveniently restored to their rightful thrones. Instead, there is only a vast Saharan wasteland dotted with the technological wreckage of a previous era, and a lingering sense of vengeful anger.
