Onyeka and the Rise of the Rebels

(1 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Onyeka and her friends have escaped the Academy of the Sun and its head teacher, Dr Dòyìnbó’s, influence. Now Onyeka is having dreams where Dr Dòyìnbó talks directly to her – and she’s worried he’ll find their secret hideout through their connection. But he has her parents locked up, so it’s difficult to block him out. Meanwhile, she needs to decide whether to trust the Rogues, the group of rebels she and her friends were always told were dangerous. If they join up with them, can their combined superpowers really take down Dr Dòyìnbó? Only if Onyeka’s aunt can fix the life-limiting sickness linked to their powers…

Onyeka is full of strong feelings, which affect her Ike, her superpower, and she keeps things to herself, even from those she trusts, which is not always a good idea. Her motives are always rooted in protecting those she loves, though – she’s a relatable and likeable character. Plus, she’s brave and highly principled.

Full of action, superhero moves using her amazingly powerful hair, and high-tech gadgets, this is an explosive sequel to the brilliant Onyeka and the Academy of the Sun.
