Binti: The Night Masquerade Kindle Edition
The concluding part of the highly-acclaimed science fiction trilogy that began with Nnedi Okorafor's Hugo- and Nebula Award-winning BINTI.
Binti has returned to her home planet, believing that the violence of the Meduse has been left behind. Unfortunately, although her people are peaceful on the whole, the same cannot be said for the Khoush, who fan the flames of their ancient rivalry with the Meduse.
Far from her village when the conflicts start, Binti hurries home, but anger and resentment has already claimed the lives of many close to her.
Once again it is up to Binti, and her intriguing new friend Mwinyi, to intervene--though the elders of her people do not entirely trust her motives--and try to prevent a war that could wipe out her people, once and for all.
Don't miss this essential concluding volume in the Binti trilogy.

"The prose is vivid and unadorned, the pacing strong, and the novella as a whole, deeply compelling. I enjoyed it. I hope Okorafor writes more." ―Locus

"Okorafor’s writing is wonderful, and the details of her world-building ― including Binti’s rich culture of origin, living spaceships, and maths that reads almost like music ― are complex and fascinating" ―Veronica Roth
"Okorafor's writing is even more beautiful than I remember it being in Binti, evocative and sharply elegant in its economy." ―NPR

"Nnedi Okorafor's imagination and worldbuilding are unparalleled, as are the heartfelt emotional struggles she creates." ―Jim C. Hines, author of Blood of Heroes and the Goblin Quest trilogy

For me, Binti is that in us which seeks to learn, to understand the truths that are at the core of life, to truly know herself. For me, she is a beautiful representation of our higher self. That which is attainable for all of us. Yet like all things worthy of striving for, there is a cost. It is pushing oneself beyond that which we have been taught, using prior teachings to seek for ourselves. Opening, shedding a portion of self to make way for that which we deem worthy to add to ourselves. This is beauty of growth.
Thus, the real wisdom we can attain through the gain and true, untainted understanding of this sought knowledge is both a comfort, yet a journey that is life-long. Binti, as most, fights for her wisdom through her insecurities, those who will try to doubt, and feed fears. Her unwavering faith in love is an excellent testament to the power of both faith and love. Giving these things to others, teaching faith, love, and hard-earned knowledge that includes all is a blessing to all.
I, with great respect, wish to thank Nnedi Okorafor for all that she's inspired in me through my interpretation of this book, series, and her other works. I feel truly humbled by her wisdom, and await the coming of her future works with gratitude.
As Always, I Wish Happy Reads to All from the Unapologetic Book Junkie 😉!
Great series and I look forward to her other stories.

I enjoy the African woman sheroe who has aspects of me and other women around me. I am awed by the imaginative blend of nature and technology. Wow what an imagination! Altogether, this makes for my favourite type of reading African sci-fi fantasy.
Look forward to the next one and the one after and the one after...
Strong words, but words cannot expressing how much this book, and the whole trilogy have effected me, interested me. It’s such an expressive story, such expressive language in so few words. And so many amazing ideas! I could do with a few spin off books for the characters and places shown in these books.
