Binti: The Night Masquerade


Right after finishing Binti and Binti: Home I picked up Binti: The Night Masquerade. The story continues on the cliffhanger of the last book (I am glad I am able to read these back-to-back, I think waiting for book three would have been so hard).

This book brings it all together. The conflict between the Khoush and the Meduse. The opinions of Binti's family and elders of her tribe. The history of her father's people. Her history. And it all comes down to who Binti is and wants to be. Respecting her history and traditions, and yet being her own person in her own way.

What can I say. I really liked the first two books, and this was a very good and satisfying conclusion. I still think these three novellas could have been one great book. Four out of five stars from me, and recommended to anyone who loves science fiction with roots in Earth history and traditions.
