Críticas:

Praise for Nnedi Okorafor's award-winning "Who Fears Death"
"A fantastical, magical blend of grand storytelling." --"Publisher's Weekly"
"Beautifully written, this is dystopian fantasy at its very best. Expertly exploring issues of race, gender, and cultural identity, Okorafor blends future fantasy with the rhythm and feel of African storytelling." --"Library Journal"
"To compare author Nnedi Okorafor to the late Octavia E. Butler would be easy to do, but this simple comparison should not detract from Okorafor's unique storytelling gift." --"New York Journal of Books"
"Her pacing is tight. Her expository sections sing like poetry. Descriptions of paranormal people and battles are disturbingly vivid and palpable. But most crucial to the book's success is how the author slowly transforms Onye's pursuit of her rapist father from a personal vendetta to a struggle to transform the social systems that created him." --The Village Voice
"Both wondrously magical and terribly realistic." --"The Washington Post"

Praise for The Book of Phoenix
"Okorafor triumphs over the perils of the prequel by making the inevitable feel newly dreadful. Blending poetic passages with sharp observation and the occasional cadence of a story told by firelight, The Book of Phoenix is an assured introduction not just to her world's myths, but to the process of mythmaking." --The New York Times
"A gripping examination of the power of myth and of who is allowed to write and preserve history.... Okorafor's fantastical The Book of Phoenix has that ring of truth, a superlative adventure that addresses all-too-harsh realities." --The San Francisco Chronicle
"Okorafor's inventiveness is as stunning as ever, and the ending is nothing short of spectacular." --The Chicago Tribune
"Phoenix and her story exist in that shimmering space that marks where science fiction and magical realism overlap.... The Book of Phoenix hit all of my emotional checkboxes."--BookRiot
"The Book of Phoenix isn't just well written, and it isn't just smart as hell; it's also a damn good story, and it kept me reading almost nonstop all the way through."--Tor.com
"The book is grounded by its unflinching exposure of the brutalities of colonialism, racism, and greed, and exalted by the beauty of Okorafor's prose." --Library Journal (starred review)
"This is a story of vengeance, a fantastic epic battle between good and evil; written as a fable for the future." --Barnes & Noble Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog
"While the grim logic of the plot makes it very clear early on how the plot must play out, the process is as entrancing as watching an avalanche sweep toward you, and Okorafor's prose is as ever, enthralling."--RT Reviews

Reseña del editor:

A fiery spirit dances from the pages of the Great Book. She brings the aroma of scorched sand and ozone. She has a story to tell....
The Book of Phoenix is a unique work of magical futurism. A prequel to the highly acclaimed, World Fantasy Award-winning novel, Who Fears Death, it features the rise of another of Nnedi Okorafor's powerful, memorable, superhuman women.
Phoenix was grown and raised among other genetic experiments in New York's Tower 7. She is an "accelerated woman"--only two years old but with the body and mind of an adult, Phoenix's abilities far exceed those of a normal human. Still innocent and inexperienced in the ways of the world, she is content living in her room speed reading e-books, running on her treadmill, and basking in the love of Saeed, another biologically altered human of Tower 7.
Then one evening, Saeed witnesses something so terrible that he takes his own life. Devastated by his death and Tower 7's refusal to answer her questions, Phoenix finally begins to realize that her home is really her prison, and she becomes desperate to escape.
But Phoenix's escape, and her destruction of Tower 7, is just the beginning of her story. Before her story ends, Phoenix will travel from the United States to Africa and back, changing the entire course of humanity's future.
