Sunny and the Mysteries of Osisi

Publisher: Cassava Republic

Review

Having survived her first year as a Leopard person, Sunny is adjusting to the demands of juggling her two lives. Her studies are progressing well and she is even learning the art of reading Nsibidi.

Before long though, her good intentions are compromised when her brother is almost killed and she is plagued by terrifying dreams. By trying to do the right thing, Sunny puts herself in mortal danger and has to contend with an evil djinn, a spider the size of a house, and a violent confrontation with her nemesis, Ekwenzu.

This is the second book of a fantasy adventure series set in contemporary Nigeria in which protagonists discover that with great power comes great responsibility. The mix of ancient and modern culture is fascinating – both to readers with an interest in Nigeria, and those looking for some magical escapism.
