The story moves quickly, interesting things happen, the characters show some development so that's good. The magic is magical, and almost everything works to get to the conclusion. The final actions in Sunny's big battle did seem a bit arbitrary and contradictory what with all those read beads flying about. ( )

I love how this series is a whole 'nother level of world building, but explains it well enough to not require re-reading the first book. The magical Nigeria is a vivid and strange place, mysteries begin to be answered, and Sunny Nwazue is starting to stand on her own. Unexpected plot twists, good relationships, and a thoroughly engrossing tale. ( )

This second installment of the Akata Witch series was a more introspective journey than the first one. I enjoyed it just as much watching Sunny grow as a free-agent Leopard and as a person. The first part of the book is mostly about Sunny and her learning more about her powers, especially when she is thrown in the basement of the library after breaching the secrecy of the Leopard People. Her friends Orlou, ChiChi, and Sasha remain in the background until about the middle of the book. Their adventures were just as breathtaking as the first book. ( )

It started really good, and then ended really great, but it seemed like the middle dragged a bit a some points. It seemed like the first book was better paced, but I'm still looking forward to the third one! ( )

A year after finding out she was apart of the Leopard Society, Sunny Nwazue has been studying and sharpening her magical powers to defeat a terrifying, powerful masquerade, Ekwensu. After being punished for helping her older brother get out of trouble using her magic, Sunny and her coven must travel to Osisi to fight to save the world.

Just like the first book, Akata Witch, Akata Warrior is filled with Nenedi Okorafor's rich and detailed world building that I loved. Though I still wasn't fully set on writing style - it still seemed full of details and story line that left the story feeling meandering but then rushed in places that I wish had more details. There was a lot of recap in the book, some of it would even be stuff that happened a few pages before, which sometimes helped because I would get lost in why and how things were happening because of the way the writing was.

I did still enjoy the book, even though I wasn't a HUGE fan of the first book, I grabbed the second one the day I finished the first because I still wanted to see what would happen with Sunny, Orlu, Sasha, and Chichi. Okarafor has a talent for world building and I wanted to know more. I'm still going to recommend this book to people who like science fiction and fantasy. Just because I wasn't my full cup of tea, doesn't mean it wasn't good. ( )
