Raybearer asks questions I often ask myself. “What is the meaning of family? Are we loyal to blood family at all costs?! As an outcast, how and where is true family found and what will you do to keep it?” ( )

YA fantasy, set in a West African inspired world. Our narrator, Tarisai, was raised by an elusive and mysterious mother in order to revenge her own wrongs at the hands of the ruling council. Tarisai craves closeness and affection, but also wants to be her own person.

I enjoyed this book, even though the world-building involves some clunky bits. I would compare it to the Divergent series in that way. Definitely nice to read a fantasy with diverse characters. I will look for the sequel. ( )

I read this book as part of my Norton Award finalist packet.

This book absolutely blew me away--and the sad thing is, I never would have read it if it hadn't been up for the Norton Award, simply because the description made it sound like yet another 'kids forced into tournament' plot, which I am sick to death of. THIS BOOK IS SO MUCH MORE THAN THAT. Raybearer is brilliant, unique, and unpredictable--this was a rare case where I had no idea how the book would end.

Tarisai is raised in a household of fearful servants, ever eager for rare visits from her enigmatic mother, known as The Lady. With a touch, she can see the memories of people and objects, but she has no idea how unusual she is. For all her tutoring, she is completely innocent of the larger world--by design. The Lady has created her to be a weapon to destroy the Crown Prince. Tarisai is deployed to perform her duty, and despite a magical compunction laid upon her, she resists the command as she gets to know the prince and her competitors for a role in the future leadership of the realm. How she resists, and what happens as a result, is astonishing.

Really, the worldbuilding here is just... wow. Everything is intricate and involved, and comes together so beautifully in the end. I'm glad there is a sequel out later this year, because I need more of these characters and this world, and the author is definitely one to follow in the coming years. ( )

"Why does everyone hate change so much?" I demanded.
"Because things could get worse."
"Maybe. But do you know what I think?" My chest throbbed. "I think deep down, we're afraid that things could get better. Afraid to find out that all the evil— all the suffering we ignore— could have been prevented. If only we had cared enough to try." ( )

Tarisai is the daughter of The Lady. Her gift is seeing people's memories when she touches them. Her mother has 3 wishes when it comes to her daughter and she is careful in contact and communication so she doesn't accidentally give a command. When Tarisai goes to the palace to vie for a place as one of the Crown Prince Council's 11, The Lady tells her to make Dayo (the future king) love her and then kill him.
Each region of the Kingdom has a place on the council and the future leaders are bound together by the Ray.
As Tar grapples with her curse and her own free will, she also finds her own place in the world and must find her bellysong, her purpose to claim a path of her own and her freedom.
Some serious world building happens. The characters and story are compelling. ( )

For the kid scanning fairy tales

for a hero with a face like theirs.

And for the girls whose stories

we compressed into pities and wonders,

triumphs and cautions, without asking,

even once, for their names.
