The thrilling sequel to the Hugo and Nebula-winning Binti by Nnedi Okorafor

It’s been a year since Binti and Okwu enrolled at Oomza University. A year since Binti was declared a hero for uniting two warring planets. A year since she found friendship in the unlikeliest of places.

And now she must return home to her people, with her friend Okwu by her side, to face her family and face her elders.

But Okwu will be the first of his race to set foot on Earth in over a hundred years, and the first ever to come in peace.

After generations of conflict can human and Meduse ever learn to truly live in harmony?

Praise for Nnedi Okorafor:

"Binti is a supreme read about a sexy, edgy Afropolitan in space! It's a wondrous combination of extra-terrestrial adventure and age-old African diplomacy. Unforgettable!" - Wanuri Kahiu, award winning Kenyan film director of Pumzi and From a Whisper

"A perfect dove-tailing of tribal and futuristic, of sentient space ships and ancient cultural traditions, Binti was a beautiful story to read.” – Little Red Reviewer

Binti is a wonderful and memorable coming of age story which, to paraphrase Lord of the Rings, shows that one girl can change the course of the galaxy.” – Geek Syndicate

Binti packs a punch because it is such a rich, complex tale of identity, both personal and cultural… and like all of Nnedi Okorafor’s works, this one is also highly, highly recommended.” – Kirkus Reviews

"There's more vivid imagination in a page of Nnedi Okorafor's work than in whole volumes of ordinary fantasy epics." -Ursula Le Guin

"Okorafor's impressive inventiveness never flags." - Gary K. Wolfe on Lagoon

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good transition story The only real negative about "Home" is that it is very much a transitional story. It provides great insight into Binti's past and her peoples, but Okorafor could have removed as much as a third of the content and still had a strong story and set-up for the final book while maintaining consistent pacing with the first book. This of course is only a negative if you want to get on with the story. For those of us who love world building and character-driven stories, the additional content is a treat. As with the first book, I feel like I'm sitting by a fire, listening to an elder retell their life stories. The narrative is comforting and makes it difficult to stop reading even for the sake of sleep. There are also some beautiful moments throughout, my favorite being Okwu's introduction to a body of water. I also loved that we get to learn more about the history of extraterrestrial contact within the story's world (which also provided answers to some questions I had about Binti after the first book).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Sequel This one ends on a cliffhanger so I'm looking forward to the third book to tie it all together. Excellent series.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Novella This novella starts a bit slow but the pace picks up by the end. Great continuation from the first entry in the series. It'll be interesting to read what happens in the third part.
