Délé Ogundiran narrates this futuristic novel, which is set in Northern Nigeria at a time when body augmentations are able to restore and enhance human physiology. Anwuli, a young woman, faces daily discrimination from zealots who fear biotechnology like hers, considering it a sin against nature. Listeners are plunged into the action when Anwuli is forced to defend herself against a vicious attack. Fleeing the scene, she must evade detection by overreaching surveillance in a fully connected world. Fortuitously, she joins forces with Fulani, a herdsman who is also wrongfully accused of a crime. The two embark on a perilous path that ultimately leads to a better future for both of them. Ogundiran effectively delivers a high-stakes portrayal of abusive capitalism, climate change, and colonialism. M.M.W. 2023 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2022]
