The concluding part of the highly-acclaimed science fiction trilogy that began with Nnedi Okorafor's Hugo- and Nebula Award-winning BINTI. Binti has returned to her home planet, believing that the violence of the Meduse has been left behind. Unfortunately, although her people are peaceful on the whole, the same cannot be said for the Khoush, who fan the flames of their ancient rivalry with the Meduse. Far from her village when the conflicts start, Binti hurries home, but anger and resentment has already claimed the lives of many close to her. Once again it is up to Binti, and her intriguing new friend Mwinyi, to intervene-though the elders of her people do not entirely trust her motives-and try to prevent a war that could wipe out her people, once and for all. Don't miss this essential concluding volume in the Binti trilogy. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.… (mere)

Summer 2019 (Hugo Award Nominee 2019 - Novella);

I give up. On this book, on this series, on trying to hope something would pull it together and pul it out for me by the end -- especially because book three did end up with a nomination for some reason. But this book? Is too convenient by far, and I can put up with a little too convenient in the fast moving rolling stone of a great tale, but I cannot put up with convenient at the level all --

All her family dies; but then all her family is magically alive. Binti dies as peace martyr; then magically is fully healed. An entire battle ground shooting war started on the ground, last long enough to kill only Binti, and then for everyone to pick up their toys and go to the sky to have the fight there instead. All the Meduse are in lake and no one noticed anything. All the memories of our new race are there. Binti molecularly bonds with two more cultures without really having more than 1-2 days problem with either. Binti falls in love in seconds and it's supposed to be some big thing, too. That the race reaching out to talking to only wanted to find out about the school, and then it was done, and why is this school the center of everything important if we're hardly ever there. Also, convenient backdating of school memories needed for defending the plot and characterization not mentioned in previous novella.

Like the brick wall slamming of the last novella with that whipstop ending, the biggest unforgivable faux pas of this one? Was that suddenly when Binti died we switched POV. For. The. First. Time. In. Three. Books. No. Just no. I'm not down with you breaking the rules and pattern of three years of narrative to make it convenient to see this death and mourning from outside itself, and then to just whisk it away like it never happened and alternate pov's weren't suddenly on the table when it all went back to being Binti after she was alive again.

I can't with this book. I would rate this less than 1, and my least favorite thing in the whole of Hugo nominee reading so far. The Tea Master and The Detective which I gave my first 1 star to was levels of writing clarity above this. ( )

Another solid 3.5.

There have been so many mysteries and questions since the beginning of this trilogy and we finally get some answers here.. but mind you, only some. I can understand why the author may have chosen to leave some of them unanswered and it actually goes well with the theme of illogical unending wars between two peoples, but that doesn’t mean I have to like it. However, whatever clarity we got was great.

I have definitely fallen in love with Okwu more as the series has gone by. It has grown to be such a loyal and faithful partner to Binti and I wasn’t expecting that. Binti has some amazing character development and shows great bravery and commitment to peace which I admired, but she is still fragile and the author leaves the ending on a hopeful note. Mwinyi is a new addition and while the romance came about suddenly, I thought he was a delightful character and just wished we had been able to see more of him.

As with the theme of the previous books, I’m not sure I completely understand what the author was trying to convey here. Maybe it’s about self acceptance - Binti accepting all parts of herself to live a happier life. There’s also commentary about the futility of endless wars, and that sometimes we don’t even know why we are fighting them. And even if the majority want peace, it may not always be possible. I thought this came across as cynical but I guess it’s not too far away from reality.

Overall, I thought this was a fascinating trilogy. As someone who doesn’t know much of sci-fi, I can’t really judge it based on quality but I liked the author’s ideas and characterizations. I just think it would have been better in a longer format because so much of it feels too open for interpretation. But I did have fun and that’s all that matters. ( )

I cannot begin to explain how much I loved this series.

"Beauty does not need a reason." ( )

That was a satisfying end to the series. I really loved how the series explored the connections and perceived connections between home and identity. I loved watching Binti's understanding and abilities develop, and I'm glad Okorafor didn't shy away from some of the grittier events that took place. While nothing felt terribly shocking about the course of action in the book, it was gratifying to watch the events as they unfolded. I am going to miss Binti and her friends as they embark on a new chapter of their lives, with a new, ever-evolving understanding of self.

Many thanks to Tor and Net Galley for the e-galley of The Night Masquerade. ( )

An excellent fun read

Once again Nnedi Okorafor delivers a punchy rollicking good read. It's full of interesting twists and turns taking the reader on an adventure of discovery. ( )
