Jordan Ifueko is the Nebula Finalist and New York Times bestselling author of the Raybearer series and other stories, including short fiction in the Hugo-nominated magazine Strange Horizons. She’s been featured on NPR Best Books and NPR Pop Culture Hour, and in the ALA Top Ten, Buzzfeed, and other publications. In Redemptor (Raybearer Book 2) (Amulet Books), the sequel and conclusion to the Raybearer duology, Tarisai sits on Aritsar’s throne – the very first time Empress Redemptor. To appease the spirits of the dead, Tarisai must now anoint a council of her own, coming into her full power as a Raybearer. But just months into her shaky reign, the lives of her loved ones are on the line, there are assassination attempts from unknown enemies, and there’s the handsome new stranger she can’t quite trust. NPR called it “Breathtakingly beautiful. … Impossible to put down. … Enthralling.”
