賓蒂來自地球的Himba族,她絕頂聰明,也很有野心,但她做了一個讓族人不解的選擇,也就是決定到銀河系最優秀的高等教育學校Oomza大學就讀。

往Oomza的路上,賓蒂搭乘的太空船受到Meduse族攻擊,銀河系的和平受到Meduse的威脅已經持續一段時間了,而Meduse也不太喜歡人類,這群有著水母外型的外星人殺了太空船的乘客,但賓蒂運用自己的智慧和Meduse談判,讓自己逃過一劫,順利進入Oomza就讀。

作者Nnedi Okorafor出生於美國,雙親都來自奈及利亞,她用對於自己對於種族間衝突的理解,寫下這系列科幻小說,受到讀者和媒體的熱烈迴響,並且獲得許多獎項的肯定。

"Prepare to fall in love with Binti." ―Neil Gaiman

Winner of the Hugo Award and the Nebula Award for Best Novella!

Her name is Binti, and she is the first of the Himba people ever to be offered a place at Oomza University, the finest institution of higher learning in the galaxy. But to accept the offer will mean giving up her place in her family to travel between the stars among strangers who do not share her ways or respect her customs.

Knowledge comes at a cost, one that Binti is willing to pay, but her journey will not be easy. The world she seeks to enter has long warred with the Meduse, an alien race that has become the stuff of nightmares. Oomza University has wronged the Meduse, and Binti's stellar travel will bring her within their deadly reach.

If Binti hopes to survive the legacy of a war not of her making, she will need both the the gifts of her people and the wisdom enshrined within the University, itself ― but first she has to make it there, alive.

PRAISE FOR BINTI

"Binti is a supreme read about a sexy, edgy Afropolitan in space! It's a wondrous combination of extra-terrestrial adventure and age-old African diplomacy. Unforgettable!" ― Wanuri Kahiu, award-winning Kenyan film director of Punzi and From a Whisper
