I am truly treating you this month, I am progressing very well with January’s Goal of reading a total of 3 books. The beginning of the month, I introduced you to Ordnance from Andrew Vaillencourt, then I reviewed Snow Like Ashes from Sara Raasch, today’s post is an introduction post to Joshua N’Gon: Last Prince of Alkebulahn from Anthony Hewitt.
I am taking part in the Joshua N’Gon: Last Prince of Alkebulahn Blog Tour hosted by Jenny Marston, the creator of Neverland Blog Tours. If you’ve been following An Ocean Glimmer for a while, I’m sure this name will be familiar! This very exciting Blog Tour starts today for a variety of bloggers, I am very happy to be the first stop on the tour, today I will be sharing the day with A Rambling Reviewer and Book Snail Reads.
Unfortunately, I’ve been unable to read Last Prince of Alkebulahn, this month I have been on a wide variety of Blog Tours as I mentioned at the beginning of this post. I thought I would still introduce you to this Young Adult book though, as it definitely sounds amazing. Hopefully, once things have calmed down a little I’ll be able to read and review this book, so watch this space!
Last Prince of Alkebulahn? Let me tell you a little bit about it;
Joshua N’Gon is a fourteen-year-old foster child from Africa. He has grown up in a loving home in north London and for all intents and purposes, he was an ordinary teenager. The reality though could not be further from the truth. Joshua is a mystery wrapped up in an enigma and he is beginning to understand he has a destiny that is far beyond what he could ever have imagined.
On his tenth birthday, he receives a mysterious package from his birth parents. He is given articles of technology that even his young mind realized were so far beyond what he knew and understood that they were almost magical. Joshua straps on a tribal heirloom of obvious alien origin that bonds with his arm and is irremovable. And so begin his physical changes too, the headaches, the flashes of genius, the visions and the amnesia.
With his friends Brick and Mina, they slowly help him to unravel the mystery of who he is. In the meantime, dark corporate forces are gathering on the horizon as his talents and interest in finding his family has piqued the curiosity of powerful people. Soon as his life and the life of those he loves are threatened he must come to grips with his gifts and the miraculous alien technology that founded his people.
Sounds interesting right!?
How about a little about the author, Anthony Hewitt;
Anthony has been writing for over 15 years. Mainly writing for mature readers, his genre of choice has always been speculative fiction. The YA category is such an exciting category that he wanted to include a diverse set of character with a different cultural perspective. He’s enjoyed himself so much he intends to keep creating fantastic new stories for a 12+ audience.
