"Ebun (The Gift)" is a five-book series immersing readers in the richness of Yoruba religion and mythology, following twin brothers Aja and Odun as they awaken their spiritual forces and embark on a quest to save the world from the ultimate evil.
"Ebun (The Gift)" presents a riveting exploration of Yoruba religion and mythology through an engaging five-book series. The narrative revolves around twin brothers, Aja and Odun, born seconds apart at the cusp of December and January. Descended from an extraordinary lineage, they awaken their soul's spirit force, "EMI", and attend a prestigious school to prepare themselves to combat an impending evil. This is not merely a tale of supernatural adventure; the series plunges readers into the Yoruba people's rich culture and heritage, bringing to life the Orishas - gods and goddesses of the Ifa religion. It artfully blends aspects reminiscent of popular superhero stories with a profound exploration of creation, purpose, and the interconnectedness of all things from a West African perspective. The characters, though young adults in a contemporary world, must journey into history's depths to understand their origins and the mystic wisdom defining their destiny. "Ebun (The Gift)" promises to redefine Africa's portrayal, merging thrill, adventure, and cultural depth, setting it on course for best-seller lists and Hollywood screens.
About the author
Born in Nigeria and transplanted to America, we are a brother-sister duo committed to bringing the richness of our Yoruba heritage to the world. Our passion for comics, manga, and the superhero universe finds a unique expression in our work, merging with the profound stories, knowledge, and spiritual understanding inherent in our culture. Our family's prominent legacy in Yorubaland, coupled with our love for our heritage and the superhero realm, fueled our research into our culture's deities, the Orishas, presenting them as African superheroes. We believe in empowering and uplifting through our narratives, enabling readers to connect with the universe in a fun, exciting way, and assert that every culture deserves its superheroes. With "Ebun (The Gift)", we invite you to experience ours.
