Binti: The Night Masquerade

The conclusion of Nnedi Okorafor’s Binti series finds Binti trying desperately to prevent a war between the Khoush and the Meduse, but the more interesting story is what she learns of her own people, and how she comes to find herself changed, once again. The strength of her character, and the series overall, lies in how much her transformation is bound by her Himba traditions. She changes, and yet she doesn’t.
