I loved the premise of a Nigerian young boy coming into his power and getting a glimpse of another culture. It was a good story that moved ok, but it didn’t grip me and keep me glued to the pages. Nnamdi’s father, the chief of police, was murdered. Their home becomes more and more overrun by criminals over the next year. During the anniversary party to celebrate his father’s life and release his mother from mourning he follows a shadowy man. What follows leads Nnamdi on an adventure like he’d only read about in the comics he treasures. I’m not the target audience for this book, but I read a lot of young adult and middle readers and typically get more drawn in. I am still intrigued enough to find more works by the author and do think this is an enjoyable book for young readers.
