About this deal

The pacing also didn’t entirely work for me, and I personally wished for the main characters to have a little bit more agency over the plot. There were so many feminist things in this book, and there were some sexist and patriarchal problems in the kingdom.

He's just some powerful asshole who fits the role of the necessary antagonist in a sort of remote way. Because of their powers and who they really are threatens the power of the ruler who happens to be a demon in denial of who his is and the role he plays both girls suffer tragedy, loss, and physical dangers.Her active imagination was the cause of many terrible nightmares, beautiful daydreams and colourful white lies. Considering the ending of this book, I am now curious to see how the story will continue in “Descendants of the First” and I’m hoping to gain a little more in-depth knowledge of the magic and the power the girls can wield, now that … well… you’ll have to read for yourself why I am curious. One of my favorite things about this book is that the sisters weren't just dumped together and expected to work/figure things out together. The narrative style is very story driven rather than character driven or relying on action sequence after action sequence to keep the reader’s interest. We only find out how important the crystal is in the middle of the book, which isn't a great technique.

Our fullness as humans is represented, our weakness and our strengths are recognised and celebrated. I finally got around to reading this story even though it's been sitting on my Kindle since the release date back in October. I enjoyed the two main characters but there were certain times where each perspective hit a slow patch and I wanted it to speed up a little. We are able to exist in a world of fantasy untouched by slavery and colonialism and dream of the magic that we could have wielded in an alternate reality.I loved this story, I think it was beautifully done, and if you’re a fan of strong female-led fantasy rich in culture and history, this one's for you.

That means that there were just a lot of odd choices I noticed that really took me out of the story and prevented me from being fully taken in.I have to admit though that I still do not have a complete handle on what their personalities are like as for me, personally, some insight was missing at times and I would have liked to explore their thoughts a little deeper. However, Sinai’s reaction to that whole situation with Ina taught me that you shouldn’t let revenge rule your heart or let a situation anger you to the point where you become blind to anything else. Daughters Of Nri explores their epic journey of self-discovery as they embark on a path back to one another. She doesn't shy away from fighting for herself and others and she's always trying to be helpful to others around her.

Her pronunciation of the words and the names were so good, and the Nigerian accent she did was also very amazing. About half of this book was world building, I didn’t feel overwhelmed by that at all but sometimes I did want the pace of the plot to pick up slightly. That isn't to say there weren't plenty of scenes that were great, but then I felt like I was noticing the fact that it was a good scene instead of just experiencing the story. Her motives are not without reason, but as the book progresses, she learns that she is capable of so much more.It was so refreshing to see how the strong female characters were in the face of all the adversities they faced.
