With intensity and versatility, narrator Nneka Okoye embraces a large cast (and a large castle) in this supernatural Ethiopian reimagining of JANE EYRE. Andromeda has trained as a debtera: an exorcist who deals in cleansing the evil eye. When her mentor throws her out, she seeks a patronage, agreeing to a dangerous assignment in a household in which 12 previous debteras have failed. Okoye builds the tension in Blackwood's adventure as Andromeda endures family secrets, alliances of necessity, romantic entanglements, and increasing violence from the angry, forceful spirits in the household. As horror and magic are infused into scenes both intimate and grand, Okoye's delivery heightens the humanity and resilience of Blackwood's multifaceted characters.
