Sunny Nwazue is back in this gripping sequel to Nnedi Okorafor's What Sunny Saw In The Flames. Sunny has settled into life at the Leopard Society, with friends Orlu, Chichi and Sasha.

But Sunny cannot escape from her destiny, and she soon finds she must travel to the shadowy town of Osisi. The journey is fraught with danger, taking Sunny through unseen worlds, and awaiting her is a battle to determine humanity's fate. Sunny And The Mysteries Of Osisi is a compelling tale combining culture, fantasy, history and magic.



"Sunny as a character is beautiful, strong, and resilient, and her host of friends and allies are well-drawn and compelling, adding to the magic of the story. Okorafor's novel will ensnare readers and keep them turning pages until the very end to see if and how Sunny fulfills the tremendous destiny that awaits her."
