Staff Reviews

A fun urban fantasy but with the twist of being "Nigerian God-Punk".
Pantheons of gods have fallen to earth. It's up to David Mogo to see if he can at least save Lagos.

Ben Parker


Winner of the 2020 Nommo Award for Best Novel

"A riveting debut this story is captivating." - Publishers Weekly

The gods have fallen to earth in their thousands, and chaos reigns. Though broken and leaderless, the city endures.

David Mogo, demigod and godhunter, has one task: capture two of the most powerful gods in the city and deliver them to the wizard gangster Lukmon Ajala. No problem, right?

"A fantastic adventure of gods and mortals highly recommended." - Tasha Suri, author of Empire of Sand

"A Nigerian Harry Dresden. Okungbowa's voice is great, and makes Lagos feel familiar."- Jacey Bedford, author of Winterwood

"This is a refreshing take on urban fantasy, and definitely worth a look."- Mhairi White

"Vivid, visceral and with a strength of the voice that just pulls me right in. The god-littered world of David Mogo's Lagos just won't let go." - Jeannette Ng, author of Under the Pendulum Sun

“A number of books have been termed ‘godpunk,’ but Suyi Davies Okungbowa’s novel may be the subgenre’s platonic deific ideal, from its title to its plot to its terse but vivid prose… Assured and arch, unsettling and thoroughly enjoyable—an auspicious debut from one of the most promising new voices in the growing coterie of African SFF writers.” 
— Peter Rubin

‘Vivid, visceral and with a strength of the voice that  just pulls me right in. The god-littered world of  David Mogo’s Lagos just won’t let go.’ 
— Jeannette Ng, author of Under the Pendulum Sun
