Evil forces have attacked the Ure, a demi-god tribe of shifters, and taken the Sacred Amulet of Uwa. In the wrong hands, the amulet can open the gates of hell and cast the earth into darkness.
Ebube is one of the warriors charged with retrieving the amulet and destroying the dark forces.
Separated from his search party, Ebube is severely wounded. His own amulet ripped from his neck, Ebube is unable to shift and self-heal and lies near death in the jungle.
This is when Ugo’oji finds him.
Young healer, Ugo’oji, lives apart from her village. Shunned for an offense which led to the deaths of her family, Ugo has carved out a life with the only person who speaks to her, elderly grandmother, Nne.
After years of isolation, finding and healing the wounded warrior will change Ugo’s life and bring her much attention… from the warrior, her village… and the gods.
Ugo is a great character!
She may be young and not knowledgeable about worldly things, but she’s not blindly naïve either.
Ugo follows her tribe’s rules and lives in exile… and harbors resentment for it. Who wouldn’t? But this is where Nne and her wisdom keep Ugo grounded and in check. Hate and contempt will taint Ugo’s gift, and Nne teaches her regardless of how people treat her, she alone is responsible and accountable for her actions.
Drawn to each other, Ugo and Ebube both try to deny what they feel. He, because mating with humans is forbidden by the gods, and she because of the humiliation of her banishment.
But the wrath of the gods and the condemnation of her people are not enough to keep these two apart.
Or keep nosy people out of their business.
The easiest way to get a man’s attention is to let him know another man is interested. When the couple is seen together at the river, news spreads quickly through the village, and Odili, someone Ugo has known since childhood, shows up at her home acting concerned for her welfare… after five years of silence.
After he calls Ugo “a sweet fruit, ripe and ready to be plucked”, she understood his intentions…and I gagged!
Ugo stands her ground. She is shunned. He’s not even supposed to be there. But he persists, saying he could come see her in private… using assisting her elderly grandmother as an excuse. *Cue Luther Vandross’ Your Secret Love. *
Of course, Ebube ain’t having it and stakes his claim. Unfortunately, he must rejoin his search party soon and find the sacred amulet. Ugo will be left alone to deal with the challenges coming her way… and there are many.
