A fate so dim. A will so strong. A storm so grim. An end so long. Fatherless from the cradle, bereaved of wife and son in his prime, Nduka seems to have a magnetic implant, which pulls disasters to him as carrion attracts scavengers. Is he atoning for the sins of his ancestors or his sins? Is this the evil hand of an envious uncle at work? Or is he merely star-crossed? 22 years in the making, and set in both 15th century and 21st century Igboland, Wings of the Night is picturesque, compact, suspense-filled, literary fiction in which the past is inextricably woven into the present and breath-taking incidents gallop after each other from the first page to the last. Abandoned by his gods, forsaken by his ancestors, and betrayed by man, Nduka recoils from society, choosing his sheep as his new family. Wherever the winds lead, he follows like a lunatic. Neither the elements nor wild beasts will deter him. But it seems that the more he flees from life, the more he flees to his destiny, even though not without tears and blood.

About the Author:

Azuka Onwuka was born in Nnewi, South-east Nigeria on August 26, 1970. He stayed close to elders and travelled extensively through Igboland and Nigeria, imbibing the cultures of the people. Rather than the medicine he had been billed to study, he rebelled and studied English at the University of Nigeria, where he became the Editor of The Crest, the literary journal of the National Association of Students of English Language and Literature. Onwuka, who is rounding off his MBA (Marketing) at the same university, has a professional background which spans advertising, journalism, banking and brand management consulting, and has worked for top Nigerian newspapers like Thisday and Daily Independent. He is also the author of two non-fictional books. He has a passion for writing and writes in a lucid, picturesque and compelling manner. He is a columnist with two newspapers and has three unpublished novels and several short stories. Onwuka lives and works in Lagos and is married to Nnenna, with whom he has two children.
