Chronicles of Zauba'ah
About the Author
As a young child, Tosin Coker developed a passion for literacy and writing, driven by her curiosity of what lay in the leaves of the books that kept her mother so enchanted. A foundation of reading and storytelling established, she passionately embarked upon quenching her awakened thirst for books, fiction and non-fiction alike, ever-anticipating weekly visits to her local library with her beloved co-conspirator. It was her mother that acknowledged her predestined future as a writer, at least two decades before Tosin actively bore testimony to it herself, when in 2007 she penned her first novel, unwittingly becoming acclaimed as the first female, African British science fiction author.
Tosin has since been interviewed and featured as a leading expert in the genre of black science fiction including as a panelist in London Southbank's Africa in Science Fiction and Africa Utopia segment on Afrofuturism. Her work has also been featured in Litro Magazine #137 Future Fashions edition.
About the Book
Zauba'ah; a N9nth Degree Warrior Scientist of galactic accolade, is charged with the mission of incarnating in the form of an adolescent girl, in order to pass judgement on the human race. Events that took place during her occupation led to the onset of an intergalactic war of such magnitude that it went down in the history of her collective as Heaven's War. How did she earn the status of an elite goddess of biblical proportions endowed with the right to judge? Simple, like you and I, she was born with a gift and a purpose and used the two to earn it. This is her story.
Chronicles of Zauba'ah is the long awaited prequel to the current quadrilogy of books, The Mouth of Babes, Let Sleeping Gods Lie, Heaven's War: The God Awakened and 2013 Evolution.
“This is actually the first adult novel I have published in three years,” explains Coker. “I took the time out to write a series of dual-language children’s books – but it was time well spent, as I wanted to release something truly epic, and you can’t write books like that overnight! I forged my reputation on high-quality, intricate fiction unlike anything else on the market, so I didn’t want to risk that reputation for the sake of speed.”
Continuing, “I suppose this is the book that I have always wanted to write, and it comes eight years after I released the first volume in the series. Shortly after my author debut, I was told that so few of our race wrote books in the genre, for not being able to see ourselves in the future, thus we neglect to write ourselves into it. This book serves not only to write us into the future, but into and amongst the vast multiverses. Thankfully, I’ve built up a very loyal band of dedicated fans, and hope that this latest and final installment in the five book saga, brings them everything they are looking for.”
