Raybearer book signing with Jordan Ifueko
Raybearer -- the strongest fantasy book AND debut of the fall season -- is the book that Leigh Bardugo and Tomi Adeyemi fans have been waiting for. Adventure, fantasy, magic, love and loyalty are at the heart of Tarasai’s unthinkable quest in this Nigerian-inspired tale. Epic and cinematic, this is world-building par excellence. Jordan Ifueko has herself a series opener that will knock off your socks and steal your heart. Thrilling!

Immerse yourself in a rich fantasy world with wishes to cheat death, struggles for power, and hopes to find love. Jordan Ifueko has given us the start of a series where peace may not be as it seems and who you are vs. who the world tells you to be can have life-threatening and history-shaping consequences. One of my favorite aspects is the chants, prayers, and songs that are essential to the story and the narrator rhythmically and culturally enriches the reading.

Totally wonderful. The Kingdom of Back was exciting and fun, full of plot twists and a few musical geniuses, Lu writes a beautiful story about the hidden Mozart. With characters full of emotion and flawlessly crafted, they add to the story and give subtle depth into the time and situation of Nannerl. Lu created a story worth reading for any one into historical fiction and women power. For readers ages 12+ - review by Kaitlyn, age 15
