Binti: The Night Masquerade

Binti: The Night Masquerade by Nnedi Okorafor, 208 pages

In the final volume of Okorafor's Binti trilogy, our heroine is heading home to a war breaking out between the Khoush and Meduse, hoping to save the Himba people that are in the path. Binti is a master harmonizer, and is determined to use her abilities to bring a truce between the warring factions. But will she be able to end a war that has lasted generations?

Okorafor wraps up this coming-of-age, identity story with Binti realizing her full potential, which is something we as readers can strive for, even if we can't all reach it. I was a little thrown by a few things toward the end of the book, but all in all, I liked this series a lot. Highly recommended.
