  1. Alyson Stone

    Book Akbiku A Battle of Gods Author Elizabeth SalawuRating 3 Out of 5 StarsI received a free copy of Abiku A Battle of the Gods in exchange for an honest review This is nothing like I have ever read before I have never read a book about Nigerian mythology and probably can count on one hand the number of books I ve read that actually take place in Africa With that being said, Abiku got a lot of points for just being something different I loved seeing the local mythology and culture So many books [...]

  2. Anusha Narasimhan

    The story is unique and unlike anything I ve read I loved reading about Nigerian culture and folklore The reference to multiple Gods, reincarnation and the description about creation of life were interesting They made me want to read up about Yoruba religion and compare with Hinduism.I liked the writing style It was nice to see some Pidgin English in between Since this was written in first person, I could grasp Dayo s personality from the way she narrates the story view spoiler The slightly chi [...]

  3. Erin Bomboy

    This epistolary novel is a master class in how to write with a compelling voice Although I know little about bourgeois Nigerian culture, I read this quickly and willingly, due to its conversational tone and fascinating insight into coming of age in Nigeria.Abiku A Battle of the Gods starts out traditionally enough Dayo is young and innocent, but, as many young people are wont to do, she succumbs to the illicit delights of adulthood sex, drugs, and falling in love She seduces Henry, her family s [...]

    I received a free ARC copy of this e book in exchange for an honest reviewEASE NOTE I read the unedited copy of this book and one star was taken away solely because of the fact it is not yet checked and corrected by an editor Polished, it deserves three stars Well, this book certainly isn t like anything I ve read before Set in Nigeria, the book offers an interesting insight into the local culture and mythology, which proved to be one of the best parts of the book.The story is about Dayo, a girl [...]

  5. T.L. Clark

    Wow, a very unusual book The topic of Nigerian folklore is intriguing, for a start.This book is told in the form of a very long letter from the main character There s quite a few Nigerian words, but there s a handy glossary at the back should you require it.I got the gist without using that though Most of the book is set in Lagos, which again is unusual, but in a good way.I could almost feel the bright sun shining down on me, even although it is not specifically described and I was sitting in co [...]

    I was given an ARC for an honest review Two things stand out for me in this captivating book the flowing narrative style and the interesting plot The plot, which weaves between this world and the spirit , otherworldly realm is the type which can be difficult to pull off by a less creative and experienced writer But the Author does a beautiful job of it, giving vivid pictures of both worlds, making the main character, Dayo move between both in a seamless manner There s a lot of the Yoruba culture [...]

    This was an unedited advance review copy sent to me by the author in exchange for an honest review and so here is my reviewThis book was different than any other book I ve read before not sure if it was the language barriers or what it was but it was very confusing for me to read but yet interesting at the same time.The characters and book all flowed together even though a name or two in my opinion could had been changed but once I got to the end I figured it out and understood why the names wer [...]

  8. Ann Girdharry

    This is a highly original story which blends eroticism, Nigerian folklore and a young woman s dual life Dayo comes from a rich family and has a privileged lifestyle Once free from her parents supervision, she seduces her father s chauffeur and they start a hot, steamy affair Things start becoming strange when sex and drugs seemingly push Dayo into another realm It s a mythic realm in which she begins an affair with a man who appears to be a god Is she hallucinating Has she gone mad As the story [...]

  9. Missy Love

    This is an unusual novella that is written as a letter It is the story of Dayo, a bi racial twenty something year old, and has a conversational feel to it, so that you feel as though Dayo is speaking to you personally.Genre wise, it is a paranormal romance, with erotic scenes and some interesting Nigerian folklore and customs, something I am unfamiliar with.For example, Dayo stressed about the size of her bum, not because it was too big, but because it wasn t big enough Bums that jiggle are desi [...]

  10. Alan Wright

    This book can be read in a day It is a fast moving work with very interesting characters The story line goes into Africa and then moves into a dream state with God s and warriors Nice story with some nice side stories I liked it a lot.

    Abiku is the story of Dayo, a young biracial Nigerian German woman who discovers she is able to see into the world of the gods Soon she is caught up in relationship with a god, and discovers that she is than who she thought she wasThis story deserves major props for its concept, which takes the genre of paranormal romance and transplants it from North America and Western Europe to Nigeria, where most of the action takes place Nigerian culture is presented naturally, through Dayo s eyes, so that [...]

  13. Stephanie

    This book was based on the most unique premise and settings I have come across in a long time Dayo finds herself moving back and forth between earthly and godly realms, discovering her own true identity and power from past lives and times long ago, all while navigating her two loves one mortal, one god The Nigerian lore and culture were very interesting, and made reading Dayo s dialect and narrative a refreshing change for me Elizabeth Salawu did a fine job of weaving together the themes of love [...]

  14. Jeanette

    I received Abiku A Battle of Gods as an ARC for an honest review This is Elizabeth Salawu s first adult erotic paranormal novel I learned a few things about the Nigerian culture, the rich side Dayo, the main character, is rich as her dad is a business tycoon By the way, so many thanks for the glossary of terms which helped to understand terms and their meanings relating to the story Dayo the beautiful college student ready to experience becoming a woman by seducing her chauffeur Oh at is only th [...]

  15. Debbie Hughes

    Given in exchange for an honest review.At first I wasn t sure I was going to understand the story But once I started I just kept reading Now I m hooked and have to know what happens next It s pretty amazing when you think of mortals and Gods and moving between them It captures my attention and takes me away At times I had to re read a part just to make sure I was keeping up as things move quickly I like how the author put the Terms at the end, I wish I had known at the beginning it may have help [...]

  16. Ruby McDemon

    At first this story just seems like random babbling from a teenager and doesn t make much sense It does all come together though and make a lot sense thankfully I m not sure if I want to read the story or not This ended up being a pretty good story, but there was a lot that I d need to look up to understand everything better before I d pick up the next book.

  17. Maggie Hasbrouck

    Abiku A Battle Of GodsOverall This book is a fast and easy read I loved the concept, a young girl who can travel between worlds and has a lover in each Written in a very bare bones style, the execution of the story was just ok Writing A mixed bag for me Couched as a letter, the writing was a cross between stream of consciousness and conversation to the reader The author jumped between past and present tense, which I found jarring The writing, or perhaps the storytelling, did pull me through the [...]

  18. Karola

    Sorry, but as much as I wanted to like this book as the theme was different and I wanted to learn a bit about African methodology and customs in this book it was just too strange to be enjoyed The writing is quite clumsy, the story jumped backwards and forwards and I couldn t really make much sense of it all Even though the gods are described at the end it didn t really make much sense The characters were underdeveloped and main character was just silly and strange, sometimes sounding like a hor [...]

  19. Andrew Cairns

    This is very easy to read, thanks to Salawu s easy going conversational style To me though, it reads too much like porn just a string of graphically described sex scenes, involving undeveloped characters, and tied together by a flimsy storyline I did like finding out a little about Nigerian culture and folklore, but I could have done this by just reading the glossary at the end.

  20. O. D. Book Reviews

    Description A young biracial woman named Dayo gets herself into a unique situation when she finds herself married to a Thunder God While already in a long distance relationship with a mortal she didn t think there was any harm in fooling around with a mysterious man in her dreams Little did she know, she wasn t dreaming.In Short This book is written in the format of Dayo writing a letter She is a humorous and entertaining character who tells her story in a quick manor, but without leaving out an [...]

  21. Ayla

    I received a free ARC copy of this e book in exchange for an honest review.I had mixed feelings about this novella, I enjoyed the information about the Nigerian culture and mythology, but had problems connecting to the main character The story didn t flow right It seemed choppy This was written as a letter, a very long letter I am not an English teacher but the structure didn t feel right to me The story was different , unique, but I think it could have been so much with a little polishing I d [...]

  22. Sami Tunji

    I got this novel la from the author as an unedited advance review copy so that I can provide an honest review on it First, I want to thank the author, Elizabeth Salawu, for writing this and sending me a copy.The story, written in an epistolary form, revolves around a lady s love or sex life with a mortal and an immortal.Well, I quite enjoyed reading it It s a fast paced read that contains African folklore and erotic content The fact that the writer merges African folklore with the erotic is real [...]

  23. Alyssa

    I ll say that this book has a few things going for it and the author has potential, but Abiku A Battle of Gods never managed to pull me in.First of all, I think the format Dayo is writing a letter to someone created distance between the MC and the reader from the start Especially when she writes a passage, then pauses to say something like I have a great memory, that s why I can recount entire conversations word for word even though they took place a long time ago Then there is the story itself, [...]

  24. Kay

    First of all i will like to say a big Thank you to the Author for a free copy.The book is fast paced and explicit, an interesting mesh of the world of the mortals and immortals.I enjoyed the fact that she delved into African folklore, Yoruba to be specific Such theme is hard to come by in present times The terse description adopted by the writer and the dissonance between the story and the title is the only downside, otherwise, it was an interesting read for me.

  25. Fatma Alao Jimoh

    Abiku Born to die Well I expected it to be a sad story but its far from that.Its a story that sends your mind on a journey, as you recount the thoughts of a young girl, Dayo Her story is quite fascinating as it brings in the yoruba gods of old, fiery and thunderous Not knowing what next to expect, I can t help but flip the pages It s well written and flows smoothly as it s easy to understand even if you re not conversent with the characters.

  26. Oreoluwa Sofola

    I received a copy of this book for an honest review I couldn t finish this book Don t think I got past 10 15 pages The writing was too juvenile for my taste It seemed like I was reading a novel by a Wattpad author I felt a lot of the dialogue was unrealistic Once I saw the mention of Stefan Salvatore in The Vampire Diaries it was definitely my cue to leave.

  27. Alexa

    This is a very unique story, laced with cultural references and imagery for the characters ancestry, but it doesn t take away from the romantic, erotic, and paranormal aspects Dayo finds herself torn between two worlds and two loves.
