E.O. Odiase (nosa-odiase) | 5 comments Like me, many of you wonder how African societies and civilisation were like before colonial rule. This book sheds some light on it, although it is fictional, there are a lot of historical truths depicted in it.

I will send an ARC copy by email to the first ten people who reply to this post. All you have to do is post and PM your email address.
Book Background:

The book is set in thirteenth-century West Africa. It dramatises the conflicts, politics and triumphs of a number of West African Kingdoms, such as the Benin Kingdom, Ghanaian empire, Malian Kingdom and the Fulani people. The story stretches across countries, seas and continents, showing the great variation in language, customs and traditions between tribes but also the unity displayed by different characters to overcome adversity.

Book Blurb:
A generation has passed, and the devastation of war is slowly fading away but the scars remain, lingering in the hearts and minds of many. In an era of peace, King Ewuare remains conflicted, torn between opening closed wounds or allowing his reign of peace and prosperity to continue.
As the King tries to resolve his moral conflict, the gods have a different agenda. Sinister and supernatural forces amass on the summit of the Agbon mountains, deep into the clouds, where no man dare stray, where the wind bites cold and the forest stays forever frozen.
Within, lies a tale of Kings and Queens, warriors and commoners, slaves and sorcerers, and the consequences of their hurried actions. African tribes head to battle with swords forged of bronze and steel, wild beasts bending to the will of man and fighting side by side.

Inspiration for Writing the Book:
Growing up, we were taught colonial and post-colonial African history. It is rare to hear of African history, tales, or traditions before slavery. This lack of information pushed us to uncover a wider truth about our Ghanaian and Nigerian cultures. For a few years now, we have visited a number of museums, showing a variety of ancient artefacts, such as the Benin Bronzes. This combined with extensive research, both in-person and online has allowed us to paint a picture of the lives of our West African ancestors.
