"This African-based fantasy concerns a benevolent sorceress and her younger brother’s
attempt to keep an evil spirit from manifesting itself into the world.
When the “great witch” Agadi Nwanyi is given two crown amulets from Ikenga, the
supreme god, she understands what “needs to be done” in order to keep Iluowa from
bringing his darkness to the temporal world. Realizing that the powerful amulets could
corrupt her and her brother, the duo decides to find two of the kindest and most
courageous men in all of Umuokwute and give the magical items to them.
Thus begins a multi-generational journey in which the storyline chronicles the lives of
those who wear the amulets and their journeys throughout the Sister Lands."-BlueInk Review
