Reviews

"All hail Raybearer . . . Fans of recent breakouts in the genre like Tomi Adeyemi and Sabaa Tahir may just find their next obsession."-- "Entertainment Weekly"
"Fresh and utterly transportive, Raybearer is a fantastical fight for freedom, family, and justice at all costs."-- "Heidi Heilig, author of The Girl from Everywhere"
"Ifueko's world building and prose is nothing short of seductive and I completely adore Tarisai's headstrong, tragic self. This will be a major gem of a release in 2020!"-- "Jessica Khoury, author of The Forbidden Wish and Last of Her Name"
"Ifueko's debut fantasy blends Nigerian folklore with a mélange of other influences to create a multicultural world where colonization and imperialism inform the story as much as Tarisai's own choices... [A] promising first installment in a fantasy duology."-- "School Library Journal"
"Completely blown away! Tarisai's tale set my imagination on fire."-- "Ebony Elizabeth Thomas, author of The Dark Fantastic"
**STARRED REVIEW**
"Ifueko's mesmerizing debut stuns as it weaves a tale of loyalty, fate, destiny, family, and revenge. Moreover, it places a dark skinned heroine front and center, who is beautiful and powerful, deadly and compassionate, and vulnerable and tough, giving YA literature more of the diverse representation teens need."-- "Booklist"
**STARRED REVIEW**
"A fresh, phenomenal fantasy that begs readers to revel in its brilliant world."-- "Kirkus Reviews"
**STARRED REVIEW**
"By crafting a world plagued by imperialism, poverty, and institutionalized misogyny, and a mythology that literalizes the power of love, purpose, and sacrifice, Ifueko illustrates the need for social change and inspires readers to fight for it."-- "Publishers Weekly"
