MIDDLE GRADE FICTION: The amazing adventures of three would-be adventurers and their quest to find a mysterious princess. THE LIVING When engineers start to build roads in Luhonono, strange things begin to happen. Ancient spirit legends start speaking to thirteen year old Magdalene sending her and her two companions, Peter and Gimbo on a mysterious mission. They soon discover that everything in Luhonono is not what it seems to be. The actions of an evil witchdoctor—‘Moja’ sets them on a course to find the Legend of the East Road. THE UNSEEN At the beginning of time, the ancient ancestors of Luhonono combined their souls to sprout a giant Baobab. Within its roots they placed a spirit mirror to separate the living from the dead. For centuries this power had been protected by M’tuna “The Gatekeeper” but now, the building of a new crossroad junction at the tree, causes upheaval and weakens M’tuna’s powers. Moja intends to take advantage, and turn the spirit mirror upside. His ritual will release an army of demons to help him take control and rule Luhonono. THE TEAM Magdalene, Peter and Gimbo start off on an innocent quest to find a princess only to discover a place of ancient dreaming, ritual and lurking evil. To save the village Magdalene, Peter and Gimbo must search for the animal legends that will help them overthrow the evil witchdoctor and kill his conjured demons.
Luhonono is a place in Africa where the living and the dead are separated by a mirrored gate. Since the beginning of time animal guides have helped the dead cross into the afterlife. But what happens if the mirror breaks and the only saviours left are a teenage girl and her two male companions?
The Roads of Luhonono Series describes the events needed to restore the delicate balance between life and the afterlife. Legend of the West Road recounts the adventures of three teenagers Magdalene, Gimbo, and Peter and their struggle to bring one of four animal guides (the Western animal legend) to the crossroad. Their quest pits them against the ever-present evil of the powerful witchdoctor, Moja and requires face-to-face conflict with his conjured demons.
