Review

'Terrific.' --Lisa Appignanesi, Independent

'This is a dark, tense, gripping first novel, peeling back layers of Nigerian society.' --The Times

'Chibundu Onuzo's confident debut alternates between [Abike and the hawker], deftly capturing their contrasting perspectives on life and society ... there are promising flourishes here that catch the eye.' --Financial Times

'An energetic thriller debut.' Observer

Two teenagers from opposite sides of the tracks are the central players in a fiery Nigerian revenge tragedy ... as Runner G digs deeper, the results are explosive.' --Guardian

'Onuzo deftly portrays two disparate worlds contained in one sprawling city: one heaving with sweat, casual violence and poverty; the other coolly distant and, in light of such hardship and brutality, absurdly concerned with European brands - and equally violent.' Irish Times

'In Chibundu Onuzo's compelling and assured debut, an ill-fated romance is played out on the mean streets of Lagos between an 18-year-old street hawker, Runner G, and super-rich 17-year-old Abike Johnson. So far, so Romeo And Juliet, except there's nothing innocent about Abike, and there are no family feuds (seemingly) and no family ties either.' --Daily Mail

'Debut novelist Chibundu Onuzo's story of two star-crossed lovers in Lagos quickly outstrips its premise to become a much darker and more thrilling tale ... [Onuzo] keeps a taut hold of her material so that the threads of revelations of the past gradually enmesh the reader in a sinister tangle of events. Told with controlled clarity, The Spider King's Daughter is a gripping, involving and very impressive debut.' --Metro
