Booklist - 07/23/2023 All her life, Abeni has been known as the little rain bringer; it is rumored that when she was born, she brought rains that ended a perilous drought. On the day of Abeni’s twelfth birthday, she is eager to convince people to drop the “little” from her nickname, wanting to be seen as more than a child. But she doesn't realize that her wish is about to come true, just not in the way she hopes. When Abeni’s family and friends are stolen away, she must make an unlikely alliance with spirits to take on a villain who is older than humans themselves. This sweeping epic fantasy takes beloved West African folklore and spins it into a tale of whimsy, horror, and adventure. Nebula-winning Clark, known for his adult works, masterfully builds beautiful, authentic worlds and fills them with characters that are both endearing and flawed. This has the feel of a classic fantasy, something that will be passed down for generations to come. - Copyright 2023 Booklist.
