"Reading The On My Kindle "the on my Kindle The actress Weruche Opia who narrators the audiobook has a great voice which makes for a smooth listening xperienceRead athttpswomenofcolorreadtooblogspot I really njoyed reading Daughters of Nri The cover art is stunning It is based in the Kingdom of Nri which is now Nigeria So in a way it is a historical fiction I think The story involves a lot of political and religious lements along with some fantasy The nature and people are described colorful I loved Amayo s writing it made Trading Places: The Netherlandish Merchants in Early Modern Venice everything spring to life The story follows Naala and Sinai twins seperated at birth They grow up thinking they are human But in truth they are Goddesses and the ones left to defeat Eze Ochichiri the ruler of Kingdom of Nri who is mighty and caused the Gods to leave He doesverything to keep his position safe lives don t matterIt is uite a slow paced story where we
follow Naala and Sinai on a day to day basis GoingNaala and Sinai on a day to day basis Going hardships and finding out slowly about their powersThey are both fierce and you see them grow The friendship bonds in this book grow in unlikely places and I love how they are portrayed Some genuine some through traumatic occurrences There is some romance in the book that is not the center point and feels natural I appreciate that a lotI also loved the Igbo words throughout the story there is a glossary at the back I love when writers do that it En plein coeur enriches the storyven in my opinion THIS COVER I can t DNF d at page 161 or soThe way of writing is beautiful although sometimes repetitive but the characters don t xactly show their feelings instead we are constantly told how they feelThe story has spark but for me it failed to ignite and Dance Real Slow ended up losing the initial curiosity I had going D at birth a price paid tonsure their survival from Eze Ochichiri the man who rules the Kingdom of Nri Both girls are tested in ways that awaken a mystical formidable power deep within themselves Eventually their paths both lead back to the mighty EzeBut can they defeat the man who brought the gods themselves to their knees.

the higher score after reading Amayo s inspiration behind the book It ishigher score after reading Amayo s inspiration behind the book It is for me as an African lover of fantasy and sci fi to have books about African characters that aren t rooted in colonialism or slavery However this noble The Art of Memoir endeavour doesn t mean the book is without flawsMy first issue actually stems from the whole black African concept If we know thatvery single character is black WHY are we constantly reminded of that The Eze has black skin that blends with the darkness of a cave Sinai has dark brown legs Eni has pecan skin one of the goddesses is carob coloured If it was said once in a way that lets us know skin tone okay I could deal with it but it s brought up again and again and again I ve always thought that repeatedly mentioning the skin colour of characters implies how unusual the very idea of their xistence in that particular context is I usually read it in books by white authors and it comes off as performative Look at me and my black book characters doing black book character things with their blackness This type of approach doesn t make any sense in the context of Daughters of NriMy other issue is that the book kind of dragged It took a long time to get to the point of why the twins are special and by the time their actual twin action happened it was a rushed conclusion that s only a little satisfying Added to that is the fact that the Eze s villainy is pretty passive for most of the book We get reports on what people do
On His Behalf We Rehis behalf we re how scary he is but we re not actually shown him doing all of these horrible things He s just some powerful asshole who fits the role of the necessary antagonist in a sort of remote way My last problem is about the characterisat.
