Publisher's Summary

Shortlisted for the Arthur C. Clarke Award 2016.

The stunning stand-alone prequel to the World Fantasy Award-winning Who Fears Death by the author of Lagoon.

They call her many things - a research project, a test-subject, a specimen. An abomination.

But she calls herself Phoenix, an 'accelerated woman' - a genetic experiment grown and raised in Manhattan's famous Tower Seven, the only home she has ever known. Although she's only two years old, Phoenix has the body and mind of an adult - and powers beyond imagining. Phoenix is an innocent, happy to live quietly in Tower Seven, reading voraciously and basking in the love of Saeed, another biologically altered human.

Until the night that Saeed witnesses something so terrible that he takes his own life. Devastated, Phoenix begins to search for answers - only to discover that everything that she has ever known is a lie. Tower Seven isn't a haven. It's a prison. And it's time for Phoenix to spread her wings and rise.

Spanning contents and centuries, The Book of Phoenix is an epic, incendiary work of magical realism featuring Nnedi Okorafor's most incredible, unforgettable heroine yet.

    "Interesting book, marred by awful over the top narration"

    The narration on this leaves the listener no space to interpret what they are listening to themselves. Ruined.
