The coming of the priestess of power
Chayoma chronicles the extraordinary journey of a young girl, bestowed with unique abilities, who becomes ensnared in the treacherous political machinations of her own people. It is only with the assistance of an immortal being, who has traversed the earth for thousands of years, that she uncovers the truth. Now awakened to her true calling, she must battle to liberate her people from oppression and avert a cataclysmic event poised to befall the Kitara kingdoms.
Chayoma, a descendant of the revered MLEZI spirit—an ethereal entity commissioned by the gods to vanquish evil—uncovers her narrative in the time predating the rise of the Mlezi in Volume 1. This enthralling tale encompasses elements of love, action, magic, suspense, cutthroat politics, and fantastical realms, intricately woven together in a rich tapestry of storytelling. Taking inspiration from iconic characters such as Red Sonja, Netflix’s Witcher, and Conan the Barbarian, Chayoma infuses an extra African flair that is sure to captivate your senses.
The story is set against the backdrop of the Great Lakes kingdoms in East Africa, where numerous tribes and legacies flourished, enhanced by imaginative fictional elements that add a delightful twist to the narrative.
Born into a clan steeped in witchcraft, Chayoma’s inherent nobility drives her towards redemption. Awakened to her destined path, foretold by the Mlezi, she emerges as the chosen one to fulfill her greatest mission. Hailing from the Kitara kingdom in the East African Great Lakes region, she carries the weight of the Jangura curse, her fate intertwined with the destiny of the kingdom itself.
