Blurb; Nigerian God-Punk – a powerful and atmospheric urban fantasy set in Lagos.
Since the Orisha War that rained thousands of deities down on the streets of Lagos, David Mogo, demigod, scours Eko’s dank underbelly for a living wage as a freelance Godhunter. Despite pulling his biggest feat yet by capturing a high god for a renowned Eko wizard, David knows his job’s bad luck. He’s proved right when the wizard conjures a legion of Taboos—feral godling-child hybrids—to seize Lagos for himself. To fix his mistake and keep Lagos standing, David teams up with his foster wizard, the high god’s twin sister and a speech-impaired Muslim teenage girl to defeat the wizard.
My Review; This was a first for me as I haven’t read anything similar to this story before, but surprisingly I absolutely loved it and enjoyed it. I flew through it. Very different from what I usually read but a great story!
It is a brilliantly written story full of fighting, fire, war and missions. David is one strong character but he found some brilliant allies who supported him against all the odds. The ending was well deserved after all they endured.
A story that won’t be easy to forget. A whole new world opened up for me while reading this. I absolutely love the cover on this book too, very eye catching. Beautiful. I found it very fascinating about all the different wizards, gods and goddess’s. A well deserved four stars from me. Highly recommend.
