lion of umanaThe Lion of Umuna and the Legacy of the Nomads

by Henry Chuks, BSc Pharmacology, 1999

The book, The Lion of Umuna and the Legacy of the Nomads, introduces Ariel Rock-Igwe, son of the Chief of Umuzah, and bestowed with magical super powers, a legacy of Hebrew nomads who encountered Ariel's forefathers generations ago. Set in the early twentieth century, The Lion of Umuna smacks of Chinua Achebe's 'Things Fall Apart' with a superhero-quest twist capitalising on Hebrew mythology. The book has quickly raced into the Top 100 in the Fantasy > Historical genre in the Amazon Kindle store, and Spotlight Literary Publishing are taking the book to paperback this summer.
