“In The Quest for the Gem of Arubia Augusta Mmakamba Okon offers us a spell-binding African sci-fi that would fascinate children and adult readers as a parable of courage, hope, and redemption. The folktale-like narrative bristles with teeming characters, fantastic episodes, and the triumph of the human spirit represented by Omorege, the rejected Albino and The Odd One who becomes the cornerstone and avatar of his community. Laced with mystery, riddles, and suspense, the didactic tale encourages the reader to confront their worst fears, and to recognize that “Danger wiggles her waist delighted to see the one who dares her.”
