DAVID MOGO GODHUNTER
SUYI DAVIES OKUNGBOWA
Lagos Will Not Be Destroyed
The gods have fallen to earth in their thousands, and chaos reigns.
Though broken and leaderless, the city endures.
David Mogo, demigod and godhunter, has one task: capture two of the most powerful gods in the city and deliver them to the wizard gangster Lukmon Ajala.
No problem, right?
