Hello Gemmies! I have an exciting new cover reveal to share with you today. Descendants of the First by Reni K Amayo is a new fantasy novel and the second book in The Return To Mother Earth Series. Amayo's debut Daughters of Nri was absolutely fantastic and I cannot wait to get my hands on this gem! Can we take a moment to appreciate the gloriousness that is this cover?!?! It is regal and a perfect match for the cover for Daughters of Nri! Ugh I can hardly stand all this magic!
Synopsis for Descendants of The First from Goodreads:
The king is dead - and with him, the last thread holding the kingdom together. Deep cracks are forming throughout the kingdom of Nri with whispers of deadly successors lurking beneath the shadows. Despite having the same face, it seems the deepest crack is forming between Naala and Sinai, the reunited twin goddesses, who must put their differences aside as they travel through a broken Nri.
Unbeknownst to the girls, their use of the mystical Ṇdu crystal has awakened mythical beasts and the lost gods, each returning to Nri one by one. One thing is clear, the twins will have to face enemies at every corner of the kingdom... one of whom lies hidden amongst those they hold dearest.
As ongoing turmoil spreads throughout the kingdom, the daughters of Nri must unmask the true face of their enemy, as they discover that their unique blood has marked them with magic strong enough to restore true peace to the world - a task only they can complete.
But with beasts lurking far and wide, will they be able to do so before the kingdom succumbs to its looming curse?
Published by Onwe Press, Descendants of The First will release in March 30, 2021 and is available for pre-order from all major booksellers shortly. Are you looking forward to reading this book? Let me know by leaving a comment below. Happy Reading!
