The Vanished Birds: A Novel
Lonely and adrift, Nia Imani is essentially a time traveler, a woman out of place, and outside time. A month of travel for her is a decade for others. But when she takes in a boy who has fallen from the sky, everything changes. Though the boy refuses to speak, he plays beautiful, haunting music. Through this unusual communication, the two outsiders form a bond, finding solace in each other. Their fateful encounter allows them to start life anew, and over the years, of traveling throughout the stars, they can only begin to realize they cannot outrun the past forever.
The Vanished Birds is such a complexly wonderful world – exploring the end of the world as we know it (by our own doing, no less), and into a future where nearly every part of space is controlled by the Umbai company. At first glance, I was unsure to make of this world, but as time progressed into Nia and the boy’s story, I could not help but become engrossed with it; anticipating every twist and turn (and every new character) that was brought my way. The Vanished Birds is an all-around beautiful journey, filled with moments of love, of home and everything in between.
