THE GIRL WITH THE PAINTED WOLVES, Fantasy - O.O Owoyemi


Recommended Posts

Name: O.O Owoyemi

Title: THE GIRL WITH THE PAINTED WOLVES

Genre: Fantasy

Comparables: City of brass; Black Sun

Hook Line: To avenge her mother, Tella must break the promise she made when her mother died.

Short Pitch: Set in 18th Century West Africa.

Princess Tella desires two things: overturning the false charges Ga brought against her mother and finding the perfect chance to kill Ga, the most powerful man in Eyeo Kingdom.

While she waits, she learns that Ga has rigged the King’s trial, a septennial event held to determine if the sitting King has the favor of the gods. If the trial is unsuccessful, her father will be sentenced to death.

Ga’s plan is to avenge his mother (sentenced to death by the King on account of being a witch) and to claim the throne for himself.

To keep Ga from the throne, Tella must set the girl with the painted wolves free, an act of treason. But setting her free won't be easy. Ga plans to kill the girl with the painted wolves for he has been forewarned by an oracle that she not only stands between him and the throne but is also destined to kill him. For six days, Tella must keep the throne and the girl out of Ga’s reach. But the girl with the painted wolves is not who she says she is and has no desire to be set free.
