    1. AKATA WARRIOR is the most imaginative, gripping, enchanting fantasy novel I have ever read. It will blow your mind and leave you hungry for more! I was lucky enough to get an advance- copy - I think it will be published in October. Put it on your To-Read list now!


    2. I love these books more than everything else. Before I read Akata Witch back when it first came out, it had been a while since I really felt like I was reading a "Forever Book". This is an awesome sequel and if you want to get that first book love feeling again: READ THESE. Sunny and Chichi and Sasha and ORLU. *clutches chest* One of my favorite casts.


    3. It's good to be back, Akata Warrior is a stellar follow up. Everything is a grand improvement (yes, that's even possible). I love everything about it: the mythology, and world building. Of course, the characters ARE MY CHILDREN. They give the story a vibrant ambiance that makes this series an enjoyable ride. The best part of reading Akata Witch is the nostalgic vibe. I feel homesick in a good way, it's like coming back after being lost elsewhere. I would've given it 5 stars if only the last 100 [...]




    4. I was fortunate to receive an Advance Reader Copy of this book.4.5 StarsIt's no secret that Nnedi Okorafor has become one of my favorite authors over the past couple of years. The richly envisioned world that she has built in stories like Binti and Akata Witch leave me enthralled in a way few authors of fantasy can and have done. I was so excited to receive an ARC of Akata Warrior. I read Akata Witch after I discovered Binti and was sad that there had been no follow-up, since Akata Witch was wri [...]


    5. In Book #1, Sunny Nwazue was inducted into the secret Leopard Society, Nigerians with magical powers. Along with her Leopard Society friends, Orlu, Chichi, and Sasha, and her spirit face, Anyanwu, Sunny will lead a dangerous mission to stop an apocalypse by a terrifying masquerade, Ekwensu. Along the way, Sunny finds her own path, breaking rules, having to support her older brother, who gets involved with a very bad crowd at college as well as deal with her own fears of demons. The beauty of thi [...]


    6. I have been eagerly anticipating this release ever since first reading Akata Witch, which sent me down the Okorafor rabbit hole, reading everything she's published. And I reread AW before diving into this one as it had been 6 years since I first started on that journey. This, though, didn't quite hit the same high notes the first book did for me. There was *a lot* of recap throughout the book, which may have been ok if I hadn't just reread it, but as such it really slowed down the book for me. I [...]



    7. I don't know if I didn't like this one because it wasn't as formative for me in YA literature or if I just am more objective now. Either way, I liked it a lot, but I definitely was a lot more confused and wasn't as fully immersed in this one than I was in Akata Witch. Akata Warrior continues as Sunny learns more about her unique abilities and about Leopard culture. But the more she learns about her world and her spirit face, the more danger she is in and the more she feels isolated. This time sh [...]


    8. Loved the concepts, the setting, and the characters. This West African world of magic is enchanting, take or leave the pun. I loved the deepening relationships in this one, especially between Sunny and Orlu and Sunny and her brothers. For flaws, the flow of the story is stilted in some places and I wish that music and memory were described a little differently, but over all it's really good.


    9. This is the sequel to Akata Witch which was my introduction to Okorafor's writing. They are both considered Young Adult books and are delightful to read for all ages.


    10. No sophomore slump here! Akata Warrior is an amazing follow up to Akata Witch!! I hope more books are to come!


    11. I like this, but there were some story inconsistencies that drove my copy editor's brain crazy. Definitely need to have read Akata Witch first. This is a good series for anyone looking to expand from the western/white default for YA/adult fantasy.


    12. What a delight it is to enter this enchanting world again! AKATA WARRIOR and it's predecessor are truly the most magical and immersive middle grade novels I've had the pleasure of reading since the HARRY POTTER series.In this highly anticipated sequel to AKATA WITCH Sunny Nwazue and her friends are back and causing more trouble in the Leopard Society than ever before as they try to save the world from imminent doom. The stakes are higher than ever, and as the title suggests, readers can expect e [...]


    13. This sequel continues to explore the vivid and imaginative world established in Akata Witch.If you're looking for a magic series with tons of action and plot twists, this isn't it. (That's not a bad thing.) This book is a bit dreamier and more violent than the first book but both emphasize the world-building and Sunny's growth over tons of plot. There are still lots of surprises and lots of action for the book's third act, but this is not an action series. The majority of this lengthy book focus [...]


    14. If the thing you love most about fantasy novels is the flights of gorgeous invention and the world-building and the fascinating magic, preferring to sink into that as opposed to fly by it on the wings of a super fast-paced plot, THIS IS YOUR BOOK.The plot is there, it's fun, it keeps you moving, it has stakes in both the real and magical worlds, but what makes this book so devourable (and what has me already wanting to read it again) is the way Okorafor slows down and explores her world, giving [...]





    15. I didn't think this could surpass how I felt about book one - but it was so mesmerizing I immediately re-read because I wanted to take in the art of the text. Brilliant.


    16. Another marvelous story in the Akata Witch series!I see that many readers compare this with the Harry Potter series, which I guess makes some sense given the magical themes and the intended young-reader audience. In my opinion, that's a weak comparison for other reasons - actually, the reasons I love this series!1: The main character is a strong female who is growing stronger in every way. I love that! You won't see this in Harry Potter, despite the powers of Hermione (she is still secondary). A [...]


    17. Definitely enjoyed this better than Akata Witch, especially since the magic is explained a step better than in AWitch. I really wish Nnedi Okorafor wasn't so laser-focused on having the third-person narrative stay strictly from Sunny's point of view, though. I felt like Akata Warrior missed out on so many cool dramatic scenes, particularly in Osisi, because of Ms Okorafor's commitment to this. It's kinda dull to have Sunny just being told what happened after the fact instead of shifting our read [...]


    18. This is the second book in the Akata Witch series, a book that I’ve been looking forward to for some time. It does not disappoint! The second book continues the story of Sunny, a girl who has become part of the secret Leopard Society. Leopard People like Sunny can work magic, do juju, and cross boundaries into the wilderness, a space that is different from the physical world. As Sunny grows into her powers and learns more skills, she is being haunted by dreams of a burning city that seem to in [...]


    19. I loved it. It is a really strong sequel and it is really its own book with its own universe. I really liked Akata Witch but I understand how it can be compared to Harry potter, plot wise (newcomer in magic, 4 friends, adventure). The sequel shows a completely different story. Sunny has to do something and suffers from some personal issues. The four friends don't stumble upon a mystery, it's really Sunny's journey with the help of her friends. Sunny is a strong character, and becomes even strong [...]


    20. As any book person has experienced, sometimes you find a book that is so absorbing it keeps you up reading while also distracting you a bit from life's messes. This book was just magical, beautiful, a bit dark, insightful, and honestly, better than the first. It's also probably the fastest I've finished something 300+ pages long in a whileI love how both the characters and story have matured, and how it builds on understanding of the previous book's world. I really hope there's more to this seri [...]


    21. One of my absolute favorite finds this year has been the work of Nnedi Okorafor. She strikes the perfect balance between sci-fi, fantasy, and YA work and I am obsessed with her books. This series in particular really captures me; it's been described as the Nigerian Harry Potter and I think that's a very apt comparison. I was so excited by book number two and while I don't think it was as good (or surprising) as the first, Akata Witch, it was still awesome. I can't wait to hear more from Nnedi an [...]


    22. This book was AMAZING!!! I loved reading it so much. It had me so hooked, I just wanted to keep reading it, and reading it, and reading it! It had a lot of detail and action and a bit of romance which I really liked in this book. I didn't even know Akata Warrior was the second book in the series until I was like, halfway done with it. If you like magic and adventure, I would highly recommend this book for you.
