    4.5/5

    Absolutely beautiful Nigerian fantasy! It felt a lot like a blend of Children of Blood & Bone and City of Brass, but was everything I wanted from both of those (and didn't get).

    Full review to come!

    Love this book from the cover to the exciting plot twits, the settings, to the character development. It is a complex study about right and wrong, gender expectations, making hard decisions. I will be recommending it a ton!

    For a débuté novel I didn't expect it to be so good. This book is right up my ally and it's so hard to find good books these days. I'm looking forward to seeing more from this author. It’s a wonderful fantasy novel but I think this will be a series ?

Yet, if she is able to achieve that she will be compelled by the Lady's magical wish to kill him.
    This is high fantasy at it's best, full of intricate world building and complex characters. There’s a

    Raybearer hooked me from the first page. Jordan did a great job of showing how much Tarisai craved her mother’s attention and would do anything for it. That being said, I wish we got more interaction between Tar and her fellow council members. Council members talk about how close they are, but I didn’t really believe that because we don’t see them spend much time together. Or we only see Tar interacting with Kirah and Sanjeet, but there are supposed to be 11 council members total. That’s the one ...more
