Set in the far distant future of 2172, two sisters are dreaming of more than the years long civil war that is all they have known. This story is a sci-fi set in a future version of Nigeria, but although it is set in the future, this story was actually inspired by the Nigerian Civil War which was in 1967. I loved so much stuff about this book! There can never be too many stories about sisters! I fell in love with Onyii and Ify, the main characters. Much of the sci-fi elements and world building felt fresh and were really well done. I did feel like the plot and pacing could have been polished a little bit. Overall, I really enjoyed this book, and look forward to seeing more once the sequel comes out.
