Title: Daughters of Nri
Series: The Return of the Earth Mother #1
Author: Reni K Amayo
A gruesome war results in the old gods’ departure from earth. The only remnants of their existence lie in two girls. Twins, separated at birth. Goddesses who grow up believing that they are human. Daughters Of Nri explores their epic journey of self-discovery as they embark on a path back to one another.
Strong-willed Naala grows up seeking adventure in her quiet and small village. While the more reserved Sinai resides in the cold and political palace of Nri. Though miles apart, both girls share an indestructible bond: they share the same blood, the same face, and possess the same unspoken magic, thought to have vanished with the lost gods.
The twin girls were separated at birth, a price paid to ensure their survival from Eze Ochichiri, the man who rules the Kingdom of Nri. Both girls are tested in ways that awaken a mystical, formidable power deep within themselves. Eventually, their paths both lead back to the mighty Eze.
But can they defeat the man who brought the gods themselves to their knees?
Firstly can we talk about this absolutely beautiful cover? I fell in love with it!
I listened to the audio and the narrator was amazing.
Twins, Naala and Sinai were separated at birth due to what they are and put in separate lives. They grow up thinking they are human and this story is their journey to their task to defeat Eze, the evil ruler of the Kingdom of Nri.
The writing was beautiful and just descriptive enough. I loved the world that was created and I also loved the twins, they were so strong after all they have been through.
I really could’ve done with a bit of a faster plot for the first three quarters of the book but I did appreciate the detail and also the little romance there, it made my heart sing and want more of it!!!
I just found out the next book is out so I’m diving straight in!
