Short Description: When army officer Chike Ameobi is ordered to kill innocent civilians, he knows that it is time to leave. As he travels towards Lagos, he becomes the leader of a new platoon, a band of runaways who share his desire for a better life.

Their arrival in the city coincides with the eruption of a political scandal. The education minister, Chief Sandayo, has disappeared and is suspected of stealing millions of dollars from government funds.

After an unexpected encounter with the Chief, Chike and his companions must make a choice. Ahmed Bakare, editor of the failing Nigerian Journal, is desperate for information. But perhaps the situation is more complex than it appears.

As moving as it is mesmerising, Welcome to Lagos is a novel about the power of our dreams for the future and the place of morality in a sometimes hostile world.

Dreams of Yesterday by Lilian Uchenna Amah

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.

Short Description: Hot City, Cold Hearts: An evocative novel of the promise, expectation, and disappointment of post-colonial Nigeria. The novel illuminates, through a mix of fact and fiction, a seminal moment in modern history: Nigeria’s fervent passage through a period of immense oil wealth in the 1970s to a sudden descent into a cataclysmal debt trap in the early 1980s. This chaotic period, captured within the city of Lagos, is experienced alongside the protagonist Femi Falashe, a young engineer seeking to get his life back in track after a sudden job loss, as well as five other unforgettable characters,  all in a hopeless quest to find their groove.
