When The Novel Neighbor announced that they were doing a virtual event with Jordan Ifeuko and Chloe Gong, I immediately had to read Raybearer, which has been on my TBR since it came out! I don’t normally buy books before reading them, but after finishing Raybearer and watching Jordan Ifeuko speak at the event, I had to buy Redemptor! If you enjoy fantasy, this is a duology you do not want to miss!

Essentially, Raybearer is about Tarisai, a girl who is half demon, and was basically created to fulfill her mother’s wish of killing the rulers of the empire they live in. The rulers of the empire become immune to different forms of death as they choose 11 members of their council, and by the time they have a full council, they can only die from old age, or by the hand of their council members. Tarisai’s mother was granted 3 wishes by Tarisai’s father, and she uses that wish to demand that Tarisai kill the crown prince when she is anointed to his council. Tarisai is torn between wanting to connect with other people, and wanting to avoid her destiny of killing the crown prince, but ignoring a binding wish is not as easy as it may seem.

This book is so complex and has so many moving parts! I’m highly impressed by Ifeuko’s world-building abilities, and I can’t wait to see how she further develops Tarisai’s world in Redemptor. In the virtual event I attended, Ifeuko said that she spent 12 years writing Raybearer, and I am honestly not surprised. This book has been very clearly thought through, and has so much novelty, it is astonishing.

There is truly nothing missing from this wonderful novel. Diverse and 3 dimensional characters, enchanting myth and lore, a creative magical system, and a vast and multi-cultural world are some of the many aspects you can look forward to in this book. After reading Raybearer, I sincerely don’t know how Ifeuko fit so much high quality ingenuity into one book!

I’ve found with some novels I have a hard time writing a review because I simply don’t have a lot to say, but with Raybearer I have the opposite problem: I’m having difficulty writing the review because there is so much to say! Trust me when I say, this is not a book you want to pass up on! Jordan Ifeuko has received a lot of praise for Raybearer, and after reading it myself, it is clearly well-deserved. This book is perhaps one of the best debut books I’ve ever read! ( )

Deeply imagined world with clear roots in West Africa; our protagonist is an unwilling part of a dynastic magical plot by her (frankly awful) mother, set up to kill the young ruler who she is also advising, and struggles to escape her destiny. All nicely put together but I wasn't totally convinced by some elements of the world-building - is there a means of replacement if one of the ruling magical Council dies or resigns, for instance? And the magic seemed (as so often) to be just sufficiently strong for the plot point it was supporting. ( )

I will be very honest, I was mesmerized by the cover of this book and the premise seemed very fascinating, but it wasn’t really at the top of my tbr or anything. I just thought I’ll keep it on the list and read someday. But when I got the opportunity to listen to the audiobook in advance, I thought why not and now I can’t believe that I wanted to put this book on a back burner. Because this book... it’s just wow ( )

It took me a bit to get into this, but it turned out to be excellent. ( )

For the kid scanning fairy tales

for a hero with a face like theirs.

And for the girls whose stories

we compressed into pities and wonders,

triumphs and cautions, without asking,

even once, for their names.
