The Boy to Beat the Gods

Discover a fierce and fun story of one boy versus six gods, from a magical new voice in children’s fiction…

Kayode dreams of eating the forbidden fruit of the Orishas, so he can gain the power of the gods and stop them terrorizing his people. So when a fruit mysteriously appears in his path after the Orishas snatch his sister, he leaps on it.
Surging with new and difficult-to-control powers, he joins forces with a shapeshifting trickster god and a vengeful princess to save his sister and put an end to the mighty Orishas. But each has more fearful powers than the last – and Kayode’s stolen half-god strength won’t last for ever…
