Raybearer by Jordan Ifueko

Review by Doreen Lundon, JCSP Librarian, Mount Seskin Community College.

Tarisai has always craved her evasive mother’s approval, but when sent to infiltrate the palace of the Crown Prince and complete an act of violence, family loyalty is tested. Close new bonds are formed with Tarisai’s new chosen family, the Prince and his Council of Eleven.  Tarisai must not only choose her own path, but carve it out. Sure to appeal not only to young adults, this West African inspired fantasy is refreshingly unusual and dark, yet full of colour, joy and Nigerian mythology.
