In the Nigerian village of Umuiyi, the water is sweet and plentiful, the corn swells golden, the goats and chickens thrive, and the trappers bring home antelopes. But the villagers owe their prosperity to a dark pact: every four years, they sacrifice seven of their children to a bloodthirsty god. Ure, the headstrong teenaged daughter of a powerful patriarch, probes the tradition nobody else dares to question. She uncovers disturbing secrets, involving not only her ancestors but those who live. If she refuses the ritual pledge to uphold the village’s pact, she will lose her home and family – and unleash the ancient curse Length: About 279 pages, based on print edition
