'This is one of those literary works of which it can be said that not a word should be changed' - BooklistA clever, contemporary fairy tale from a dynamic new voice, set in a fresh, surprising and utterly original world. Paama's husband is a fool and a glutton. Bad enough that he followed her to her parents' home in the village of Makendha, but now he's disgraced himself by murdering livestock and stealing corn. When Paama leaves him for good, she attracts the attention of the undying ones - the djombi - who present her with a gift: the Chaos Stick, which allows her to manipulate the subtle forces of the world. Unfortunately, not all the djombi are happy about this gift.
The Indigo Lord believes this power should be his and his alone, and he will do anything to get it back.
Chaos is about to reign supreme . . . Bursting with humour and rich in fantastic detail, Redemption in Indigo is a masterful, magical retelling of a Senegalese folk tale. 'The perfect antidote to the formula fantasies currently flooding the market' - Guardian
