Review of Onyeka and the Heroes of the Dawn by Tola Okogwu (hardcover)




Onyeka and the Heroes of the Dawn by Tola Okogwu


Onyeka and her superpowered friends set off to England on a rescue mission in this third installment in the Onyeka middle grade series, perfect for fans of Rick Riordan, The Marvellers , and X-Men .

Solari—children with superpowers—have always been native to Nigeria, but Onyeka and her friends have been alerted to one hidden in England. Tasked with retrieving the young Solari, they successfully complete their mission, arriving safe and sound back at the Academy of the Sun with Tobi in tow.

Tobi’s identity and superpower remain a mystery, until a breadcrumb trail leads Onyeka to the truth. But someone else has uncovered the secret, and unlike Onyeka, they don’t have Tobi’s best interests at heart. Can our superhero save the day once again?




This is a book three so there are spoilers from the first two books below.

I think this is my favorite Onyeka book so far. I felt like it was fast paced with a lot of mission type things. I also loved the addition of Tobi. Onyeka struggled a lot with what a leader should look like not realizing that it’s how she has already been. There was a lot more focus on the small group of students in the Nchebe. There is conflict but the kids learn to use all their powers together to complete the missions they’re sent on. There are people that seem hard to trust again in this one. And they must deal with Dr. Doyinbo in prison.

I gave this book 5 stars.
