“Nzondi’s Oware Mosaic is real Afrofuturism, speculative fiction actually set on the continent itself.  This is the future of SF, and the future is looking good.”

Oware
Mosaic
by
Nzondi
Genre:
SciFi, Horror
 
Decades
after a cataclysmic nuclear war, Ghanaian scientists develop
technology that store consciousness onto data orbs called retcons.
Seventeen-year-old forensic specialist, Feeni Xo, is a Enhuman (a
radiation-enhanced metabolic human) that, similar to a vampire, need
blood for sustenance. Through a game called the House of Oware, Feeni
discovers that the virtual construct is actually an augmented
reality. She and her human best friend, Sammi, a young female
detective, have been mysteriously given specialized neural implants
that allow them to hack into government software. The two teenagers
race against time in a horrific world of deformed beasts to piece
together the puzzles of the digital mosaic. Will they find a way to
save sentient beings from total extinction or will they run out of
time?
Once
again, Nzondi creates a rich and vibrant world crackling with life.
He is a brilliant writer, one readers and critics should be
watching.”

Nowalk, creator of How To Get Away With Murder
