"In the thriving city of Bassa, Danso is a clever but disillusioned scholar who longs for a life beyond the rigid family and political obligations expected of the city's elite. A way out presents itself when Lilong, a skin-changing warrior, shows up wounded in his barn. She comes from the Nameless Islands- which, according to Bassa lore, don't exist- and neither should the mythical magic of ibor she wields. Now swept into a conspiracy far beyond his understanding, Danso and Lilong will set out on a journey that reveals histories violently suppressed and magic only found in lore"-- Provided by publisher.

Scholar Danso stumbles on a mysterious codex that holds the secret of ibor, a mineral that allows some users to wield powerful magic of possession, elemental control, and more. But despite his attempts to copy and study the codex, he is swiftly silenced by the leadership of the great city of Bassa. He finds that he can't let his questions go, even as the harsh social and familial norms of his world weigh him down. So when Lilong, a skin-changing warrior from the Nameless Islands, appears injured and hiding in his barn, Danso begins to wonder just how much Bassa's elite are hiding. The pacing of Okungbowa's novel can be shaky, the narrative slowing much more than it has to. But Son of the Storm has a strong core in its vivid world building of ibor, magic, and folkloric creatures. Most of all, the story is powered forward through Esheme, Danso's intended, a calculating, cold woman with a fierce thirst for power, and her meteoric rise that begins when she discovers the secrets of ibor.
