Waterstones Says

Set in a West African-inspired Ancient Kingdom under oppressive patriarchal rule, Forna’s breathtaking novel follows sixteen-year-old Deka and her quest to discover her destiny as a near-immortal with magical powers.

Signed Bookplate Edition - includes exclusive foiled jacket.

A standard edition is available here.

The must-read epic fantasy of 2021, as featured on Cosmo, Buzzfeed, BookRiot and Refinery 29.

In this West African-inspired world, girls are outcasts by blood and warriors by choice, perfect for fans of Children of Blood and Bone and Black Panther.

Sixteen-year-old Deka lives in Otera, a deeply patriarchal ancient kingdom, where a woman's worth is tied to her purity, and she must bleed to prove it. But when Deka bleeds gold - the colour of impurity, of a demon - she faces a consequence worse than death.

She is saved by a mysterious woman who tells Deka of her true nature: she is an Alaki, a near-immortal with exceptional gifts. The stranger offers her a choice: fight for the Emperor, with others just like her, or be destroyed...

“Super enjoyable and a not so subtle dig at the patriarchy!”

A super enjoyable read! I loved the way the story built and built and built. However, there were moments where I felt the writing was perhaps a little slow or predictable? It is a YA so I tend to expect that with at... More

“Amazing Feminist Fantasy”

Wow, this book grabbed my attention from page one! The world-building truly is (*chefs kiss*) stunning and brilliantly done.

This story was a lot gorier and more harrowing than I expected going into it but I kind of... More
