David Mogo Godhunter

by Suyi Davies Okungbowa

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.

4 of 5 stars

One of the best I've read this year. A problematic fave granted, but a fave nonetheless. Provided a link to my full-length review with all my thoughts and the issues I had with the book. It was very enjoyable though. A definite four stars for me. Loved the fact that it was set in Africa, we need more representation in literature other than our own.
