In the year 2074, in Niger, West Africa, fifteen-year-old Ejii is consumed by vengeance after witnessing her father's beheading. In a world where technology and mysticism coexist, Ejii sets out on a journey to find her father's killer. With a new friend by her side, Ejii faces a world turned upside down—and her own mystical powers. She soon discovers that her journey across the Sahara Desert has a deeper purpose.

Nnedi Okorafor describes Shadow Speaker as a novel with "many lives": it features an unexpected apocalypse, spontaneous forests, polyandry, strange insects, fast cars, a new type of Sahara Desert, male beauty contests, death, robust chiefs schooled in martial arts, and crafty assassins.

This updated edition of Shadow Speaker, with a new introduction from the author herself, showcases Nnedi Okorafor's powerful prose and compelling stories that have made her a star of literary science fiction and fantasy, and a pioneer of Africanfuturist fiction.
