When 26 year old archaeologist Aza Scott finds a strange statue in the old nursery of her architectural dig, she tries not to get her hopes up. One statue wouldn't get her the fame she dreamed of. At least, that's what she thinks. Until the statue starts talking to her. And when the statue turns out to be an imprisoned African goddess, Aza knows she's in for the ride of her life. Turns out, her blood had the power to free the African gods, being a mixture of all the groups that previously worshipped them, and now, having befriended Oya, an African goddess of the Yoruba tribe, Aza has to travel around the world to try and free Oya's fellow gods, who were imprisoned by the Greek gods in a centuries old power struggle. Along the way, she has to avoid the human minions of the Greeks, who will do anything to make sure that the gods they imprisoned long ago stayed that way. In her journeys, she meets stingy statue owners and loyal African god believers. She also meets Edric Walker, a man whose blood possesses the same quality as hers. Joining forces, they search the globe for the statues, with help from the African gods, and visit places like Vegas, New Orleans, Egypt, and China. They also learn that not just the African gods were imprisoned, and the some of the other gods aren’t happy either When We Were Gods is a story about more than just mythology. This book contains adventure, romance, and humor and attempts to tell a realistic story with mythological influence in a way that hasn’t been explored before. Underneath all the travelling, it’s a story about finding love when you least expect it, and learning that family isn’t just something you’re born with.
