PRIDE OF THE SPIDER CLAN
Odidika is exiled at the age of twelve. The forces that tiled his chequered history challenge him on land and at sea. His fight for freedom is not just against his enemies... More > but includes himself. And he realises that the battle prize goes beyond a flute lost in the heart of Izon creeks...
Caught in the web of an old family quandary, Isikamdi arrives at the terminus of fate. Part of his choices is to die. Part is to live. The destiny of a people rests on this decision. The elements quake, the fauna and flora awaken and an arcane group of Aro men keenly awaits him.
The destiny of these two men and that of the entire Aro people collide on the stake of the sacred flute.
Pride of the Spider Clan, Odili Ujubuonu’s third novel, is a breathtaking interplay of seen and unseen forces across the labyrinths of the lower Niger. It is a story of courage and commitment high on regenerating the self, family and society.< Less
