Suyi Davies Okungbowa recommends
Shigidi and the Brass Head of Obalufon (2023)
"Shigidi is a tale that will excite any lover of contemporary African fantasy. What better thrill than two globetrotting, timetrotting, worldtrotting beings caught between a love story, a heist and a ghastly contract with a spirit company? Talabi's imagination, already obvious in previous works, shines through, offering us a world of deities and monstrosities trading in belief and supplication. An innovative addition to the godpunk roster - if you loved David Mogo, you'll love this!"
The Surviving Sky (2023)
(Rages Trilogy, book 1)
Kritika H Rao
"The Surviving Sky is a prodigious gift best slowly unwrapped. Nakshar is an enigma of a city, as rooted and protective as its people; its stakes feel cosmic yet intimate. With two headstrong characters, Ahilya and Iravan, at its helm, the story bristles, charges headlong toward its fate, keeps readers on their feet. Rao has offered us a world like no other."
The Lies of the Ajungo (2023)
(Forever Desert, book 1)
Moses Ose Utomi
"Utomi is on the brink of something exceptional."
