Let customers speak for us
I was very pleasantly surprised reading this book. I'm so jealous of young people that get to read this when they're young, but glad that I have an opportunity to read in my lifetime. The way the Orishas are represented were so cool!
Yes there were zombies, action, and fun times! the biggest take away is these expansive ways that Black girls exist in this story. Love love love!

This is just as wonderful as the book. I'm so glad I got this. Thanks to this company for having it!
Excellent condition and with a signed bookplate!!
Let me start with the service. I discovered Sistah Sci-fi as an advertisement on social media and it has been my go to stop for my next must read. Service and response are quick and efficient. Delivery is prompt and the personalized, hand written messages are a nice touch, which further the relationship that you only get with an indie bookshop.
Now the book: “Redemptor” is a wonderful follow up to Raybearer. Tarisai is a complex character whose challenges with guilt and feelings of responsibility and belonging resonated with me as a reader. The world of Aritsar is just as real and consistently rendered as in the first novel. Enjoy!
I first came across this book as an audiobook recommendation from my library. 1 hour into listening, I came to this site and bought the book. The character development and world building are complete and complex- I believe they exist and I want to travel to Aritsar! If you enjoy the works of N.K. Jemisin, Rebecca Roanhorse, you will enjoy this tale of a young girl’s growth, discovery of self and chosen family.
This hardcover Parable of the Sower/Talents box set is artist signed. As soon as I saw it I knew I had to have it. Sistah Scifi was quick and efficient in answering my questions and shipping it out. Thank you so much. I couldn't be happier.
Looks like it will be just as fabulous and interesting as the first book
Love this shirt. It's light, but not see-through and the femme style has good curve shaping. Runs small so check sizing. I usually wear a L/XL in shirts and I got the 2XL which fits pretty snug after washing.
The cover art is absolutely stunning. What a perfect addition to this beautiful classic!
I love Octavia Bulter and this edition is amazing. 😊 The book arrived in great condition and just as beautiful as shown online.
This was absolutely perfect for one of my fellow bookseller friends and totally made their day when they opened it!
Love it. just wish there was a bit more butterfly pea flower in the mix!
