Nene Nwoko, born and raised in Nigeria, is a natural choice for narrating this audiobook. This is the third installment in Okorafor’s Nsibidi Scripts trilogy. When Sunny moved from New York to Nigeria in AKATA WITCH, she discovered her heritage—membership in a secret magical community called the Leopard People. Now 16, she and her friends are on a quest to save the world, aided by juju, magic grounded in Nigerian folklore and mythology. Nwoko’s Nigerian accents lend authenticity to this engaging story, and she also subtly uses them to differentiate characters. Her deliberate pace may aid with the different cadences of the accents. Prior experience with the series would enrich the story but is not essential. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2022]
