“When the fate of a mighty kingdom rests on the shoulders of a noble warrior, a baby king and a great Amazon, the stage is set for an epic encounter between the vices of greed and ambition against the virtues of loyalty, courage and justice – on these lies the hope of a people.”
A mighty battle is won, another victory song for Oziegbe the great warrior to take back home. But a strange encounter with the elusive Oboh unearths his deep-seated ambition known to him alone. Armed with the Oboh’s prophecy as his perfect excuse and supported by his strong allies, Oziegbe perpetrates his sacrilegious deed, a venture that throws the entire kingdom into darkness and forces another mighty warrior of the land, Abieyuwa to flee with the heir apparent – a baby king.
Decades roll by as the people groan under the tyranny of Oziegbe, who builds an even stronger army including an evil sorcerer. Abieyuwa the great Amazon grooms a new army in a foreign land with the baby king now a young warrior, determined to return to their fatherland and confront Oziegbe with his stronger forces. How far can they go?

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
The ancient African kingdoms has its share of myths, about legends and heroic exploits of various figures and kingdoms over the centuries. One of such kingdoms, reputed to have erected an impressive security walls compared to the great walls of China, and had boasted of a thriving economy and a robust, organized military system that enabled them to conquer many African kingdoms in their time, was the ancient Benin Kingdom.
The difference is that, the exploits of the ancient Benin kingdom, dated as far back as the fourth century, is not a myth.
It was based on the inspiration from true exploits of the ancient Benin kingdom, that I have written this fiction with a strong female protagonist – Abieyuwa the mighty Amazon.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
I came about the characters in my novel through research. Due to the setting of the story, which was within the seventh century, I had to research on ancient names that were common among the people back then, though some are still in use today.
