Publisher's Summary

Binti has returned to her home planet, believing that the violence of the Meduse has been left behind. Unfortunately, although her people are peaceful on the whole, the same cannot be said for the Khoush, who fan the flames of their ancient rivalry with the Meduse. 

Far from her village when the conflicts start, Binti hurries home, but anger and resentment have already claimed the lives of many close to her. Once again it is up to Binti, and her intriguing new friend Mwinyi, to intervene - though the elders of her people do not entirely trust her motives - and try to prevent a war that could wipe out her people once and for all.

Critic Reviews

"Nnedi Okorafor writes glorious futures and fabulous fantasies. Her worlds open your mind to new things, always rooted in the red clay of reality. Prepare to fall in love with Binti." (Neil Gaiman, New York Times best-selling author)

A Journey Inward

The Binti series tells the story of an amazing journey that starts with Binti moving farther away from her home than ever before. The outward journey of the first book is wonderfully foiled in this finale that has Binti reflecting inwardly on who and what she is, as well as her place in the cosmos. From outer space to molecular structure Nnedi Okorafor beautifully navigates the reader through Binti's search for purpose and meaning--a story greatly enhanced by Robin Miles's more than capable narration.

Best Series Hands Down

I listened to all 3 of the stories in the Binti series and I was enthralled from beginning of Book 1 to the end of Book 3. I didn't want any of it to end. The story, the narration, the characters... everything was perfection. I felt like I was traveling through space and time with Binti. Well done. Well done.

Captivating and illustrative

Nothing much in the negative to say of this volume. Author manages to bring one through a conflict and its many underlying factors with suspense and reflection. Kept wanting to move ahead.

I want more Binti

Binti has just begun. At 17, there must be more books that take her adventures to the stars and other planets.

Just okay

I enjoyed the first two and was hoping this was the conclusion. Not sure if I'll get another if it's not the conclusion.

Loved the whole series!

My mother has been telling me for awhile that I needed to read Ms. Okorafor's works, so on a whim, I purchased Binti. This was definitely a "can't stop listening to it" series. Robin Mills was a perfect narrator for this, it truly brought the story to life for me. I'll be listening to this again, just like I read favorites books over and over.

Strong Book

I liked this one a little less than the 2nd entry but I would still recommend it as it's a direct continuation. The ending wasn't quite satisfying for me but overall a strong book.

Looking forward to the continuation of this story.

Loved the front seat view of the transformation of the character, Binti. SO relevant to the times, as humanity transforms.
