Absolutely ripping, finished it in two days and immediately ordered the sequel. My only complaint is that I need ALL the details of the marvelous setting. Not that the book is short on them or anything, but a feast of imagination flits by in the background of this story, and everything outside that world feels dull by comparison right now.
The characters feel perfectly genuine, except for the classic (and forgivable) genre exception of "I guess there's no time to force these strangers to explain these incredible developments, so I'll just go along with it." I also perceived a touch of the Mary Sue about the protagonist, but in this case I'm in favor of it. And, to my surprise and satisfaction, Nnedi Okorafor deftly dodges the vast majority of pitfalls that tend to plague the "yer a wizard, kiddo" theme. The core crew's varying relationships to their looming adolescence lends an enjoyable richness to their interactions, and I especially enjoyed the passing-without-comment displays of collective leadership and decision-making in action.
I'm expediting shipping on the next book and dropping this one off to a neighborhood eleven-year-old girl who will go bananas over it. Very excited to continue with this series and this author.
Each of the short stories included in this collection will leave you waiting more from each author. Each one was at least a 4 for me. Mostly all 5s. Huge range of diverse, fantasy characters and settings. Totally recommend.

Everything was shipped well and got to me quickly. I even got a free bookmark, that was cute! It's definitely a bonus to buy books from Black owned bookstores.
This series was amazing - science fiction at its best! Having the trilogy collected in omnibus form like this is very helpful, and the extra Binti story was incredible.
Fantastic. I actually met her in Boston about 20 years ago. I will never forget the experience. Thank you.
I loved this series so much and can't stop telling people about it. So captivating!!
Soft, comfy, badass. Love this shirt, and I love when people 'get' it.
Sistah Scifi Sista From Another Planet Sweatshirt
Great quality shirt, soft, and true to size. Octavia Butler is my favorite author, and this is quickly becoming my favorite shirt. Incredibly kind, helpful, and fast service and shipping as always.
What a fabulous adventure this book was. I was hooked from the very first page. The world building was incredible and I was able to happily lose myself in the pages of the book. Can't wait to see more of this author's work.
I'm starting the inheritance trilogy in February and my order came right on time! Also, my order came with a personalized note, which made me feel so special <3
I love this book and the sequel! I finished them both within a week, because I couldn’t put it down
I absolutely love this sweatshirt! It is well made and the design is absolutely fabulous.
Quality shirt! The only thing that would make it better is if it was a femme fit.
