Numen Yeye is about two worlds, inextricably interconnected. Numen Yeye is a princess in the Kingdom of Light, and her spirit is channeled through a young girl called Ife, who lives in a Nigerian village.
Ife’s awareness of her Light connection grows, but not as quickly as her dismay with the abuse of Nigeria’s religious heritage in dark practices. And yet she recognizes what relevance her heritage has to her peoples’, and her own, personal lives.
Numen Yeye is a story about Ife’s discovery of her meaning in life, despite her growing, special abilities. It resonates with each and every reader. It is universal in theme.
Numen Yeye is also about the spiritual lives of the Nigerian peoples, including their village customs and rites. It is a revelation. Numen Yeye is not a typical contemporary fantasy novel.
It was written in Nigerian English and the publisher has taken pains in retaining as much of the idiom and style as possible through its translation, while still enabling Western readers to fully appreciate what is a very different, fascinating world.
