The Wordicle’s Author’s Leak presents
Samuel Anim Addo
And his book “Okyin’s Odyssey: In the Eye of the Sahara.”
An incredible book that peers deep into African gods so incredibly well, and so much more (free preview at the end of the article). See what the author has to say.
From the author, Samuel Anim Addo:
“Okyin’s Odyssey is a series that was seven years in the making, and a good part of it was developing my writing voice and style. The other half of that stint is attributed to a major amount of research done as well as refusing all cures to my world-building disease lol.
Ultimately, Okyin’s Odyssey is unapologetically African at heart and seeks to build on its predecessors to deliver a fantastic story that is both familiar and fresh in its narrative, theme and concepts. Simply put, it is more than a story and its antagonist is more than a hero.
If you are wondering what you will get in return for delving into my novel’s pages? Well, first and foremost, the main magic system is fun, innovative and the possibilities are near endless.
As for the mythology, it incorporates an intimate look at African gods and their relationships with mortal men. In the Eye of the Sahara, which is the first entry introduces the protagonists and documents his hero’s journey from our world to a world beyond a mystical mirror.
Okyin’s Odyssey asks its readers to pay attention to its woven details of this tightly packed story, to connect to its characters. As a whole, the novel is written as a puzzle that fits its pieces as the narrative moves along from its beginning to its revealing end.
Needless to say that the world which encompasses this novel is epic and its themes of destiny, fate, faith and will, brings a lot to the table in regards to SFF and hopes to immerse readers in an underrepresented culture and mythology.”
Thank you, Samuel, for that great Author’s Leak and a glance at your writing process and story behind your story; definitely a must read. Please support Samuel by checking out his spectacular book!

African gods Okyins Odyssey
There are no doubt many gods. The most known are those found in Greek and Norse mythology, like Zeus (Greek) and Loki (Norse) to name a couple.
However, Africa has its many great and powerful gods too. Gods of war, of death, of wisdom. Some are: Anansi, Obatala, Oya, Shango, and Aje Shaluga to name a few. Moreover, some of those gods also made it into the Americas: Yemaja, Oxosi, Exu, and Xango which are ingrained with Roman Catholicism.
