Short Description: Nigerian businessman Robert Akinyemi Edward has already agreed to postpone his retirement once to assist Adilax, a multinational oil company, amid the worsening crisis in the Niger Delta. With just three days left in his deferment, he settles into a chair in a hotel lounge. Moments after he receives an urgent phone call, he frantically races to the Abuja airport to catch the last flight to Warri. There is no time to waste: a member of the Itsekiri royal family has been abducted from the house of Macpherson Douglas, an Adilax staff member. With Princess Alero Mayuku missing and Douglas in trouble with the police, Robert soon finds himself immersed in tense negotiations involving several conflicting groups. But when Douglas and the police officers who take him in for questioning suddenly disappear, Robert must initiate his own search operations to find the princess-rumored to be a captive of Ijaw militia boys-and Douglas. But as Robert is about to discover, there are those who will stop at nothing to stand in his way. In this political and social thriller, a Nigerian businessman is drawn into centuries-old conflicts as he attempts to rescue an abducted princess and elude those who hunt him.

Title: Themis

Author: Isaac Attah Ogezi

Genre: Drama

Format: eBook (Kindle Edition)

Book Dimension (Paperback): NA

File Size (eBook): 934 KB

Number of Pages (eBook): 90

Publication Year: February 1, 2017

Publisher: Zakky Bookworld International

Available at: Amazon (Kindle Store)

Short Description: Themis, the Greek goddess of justice, also popularly known as the blind Lady Justice, hails from the first generation of the line of the Titans in ancient Greek mythology. The myth woven around her in this play is aimed at bringing to the fore the universal theme of justice and its concomitant principle of equality of all before the naked eyes of the law which are the mainstay of the time-hallowed doctrine of the Rule of Law.
Themis is the mythopoeic story of the goddess’ passion for justice and equity far above primordial sentiments. It foregrounds the sacred place of justice above the wild call of consanguinity and romantic love. Told in a lyrical language that transports the reader or audience to the fabled Mount Olympus, the revered abode of the gods, the play demystifies the gods in the pantheon by conferring on them with some basic human attributes.

Dreams of Yesterday by Lilian Uchenna Amah

View all books listed on New Books Nigeria

Title: Dreams of Yesterday

Author: Lilian Uchenna Amah

Genre: Fiction

Format: Paperback/E-book

Book Dimension: 5.5 x 8.5

File Size (E-book): 658 KB

Number of Pages (Paperback): 208

Publication Year: June 30, 2015

Publisher: (Kraftgriots) Kraft Books Limited

ISBN: 978-978-918-246-6

Available at: Amazon.com  and in bookstores at University of Ibadan bookshop, Booksellers Limited, and bookshops nationwide.

Short Description: Dreams of yesterday examines the horror of the Nigerian Civil War and its aftermath through a story of love, sacrifice and death. It chronicles the lives of Captain Lekan Lawson, a young man fighting on the Nigerian side, and Nnena, a Biafran, who loses all she has in the war. It is fate that brings them together and war that tears them apart. Beyond the love story, Amah generally employs pathos to project the evils of war.

Although she uses history to gain leverage through language and plot, Amah is not a crusader fighting on one side of the divide. If anything, she focuses on the ordinary lives destroyed, the lives thrown into trauma beyond the trenches and away from the battleground and those who carry the scars of war in their hearts.

Dreams of Yesterday  is racy, full of suspense and leaves the reader yearning for more.
