    I received a free arc of this book from the publisher via Net-Galley, in exchange for an honest review. I don't know where to even start when it comes to talking about this one. It blew my mind to the point that even now, several days after I finished, I'm still reeling. When I d...

    like it says in the tin: ?Nigerian Harry Dresden?. the stories feel so very human, and relatable, even while being both fantastical, and unfamiliar. the use of dialect is wonderful and challenging, i look forward to more from this author. ...

    DNF @ 33% While "David Mogo, Godhunter" started off on the right foot with a Nigeria-set "Phillip Marlowe meets 'American Gods'" atmosphere, I was put off by many of its writing decisions that became more and more obstrusive as it went along. What worked: the setting and world-b...

    David Mogo is a demigod. His mother is the god of war and chaos and his father, well, he was just a common man- a mortal which is why he hunts gods and godlings, because his essence can sense their presence. And also their presence in Lagos causes nothing but chaos for human beings and...

    I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. DNF'd @ 35% The concept of this book absolutely reeled me in from the get go. Unfortunately though the actual execution of the story didn't work for me. There's way too much tell and infodumps that it bogs everyth...

    As a Nigerian girl, all my life I read fantasy books by white writers and always understood it no matter how it was written. I was almost misdirected by reviews of white readers of this book. Most of them don't seem "to get it." They DNF it at 25% and have the guts to put long commenta...

    I have been peppering my friend Amyn about my feelings when it comes to this book (which I completely adore) all day, because of how an ethnic group of people have decided to copy and paste each other?s review, with many of them not finishing reading the book and giving it 2 stars ra...

    2.5/5 Described as aNigerian god-punk,Okungbowa?s David Mogosounded like something I absolutely had to read. The story, told through the first-person POV of titular Godhunter, dives into Orisha mythology. The story develops on the street Lagos. As European I found the settin...

    Absolutely genius idea--the gods have come to Lagos and they aren't very nice. David Mogo is a half orisha half human godhunter, who starts off trying to deal with the weird godling creatures that infest the city, and ends up getting into a full blown war. The worldbuilding, steepe...

    Rating: 2.3/5 Review: So here?s the deal. I like movement that builds the characters that play in the story line sand box, especially in SciFi/Fantasy novels. Things like; lengthy internal dialogue that covers anything from scene descriptions to backstory tend to halt the moveme...

    An opportunity to read Suyi Davies Okungbowa's David Mongo, Godhunter for was presented, and I am a firm believer in never saying no to a free read. So I dove in, with nothing but the brief description provided by netgalley.com, and kept expectations and premature judgement at bay in o...

    I enjoyed this immensely. I?m a huge fan of The Dresden Files and so when I saw that this book was being described as something similar, but set in Nigeria with a whole new mythos to explore, my expectations were set high. David Mogo did not disappoint. In particular, I love how t...

    DNFed @ 25% Although the mythology is super interesting, the narrative choices were very jarring to me. The unexplained switch between a Nigerian dialect and typical Western English every now and then kept forcing me out of the story - the characters spoke in dialect but David's int...

    The world in which this fantasy was set is vibrant and immersive, and I thought David's character was bold and determined, brave but also stupid at times because he wouldn't realise the danger he was in. I also loved the fact that there were people and creatures from different mytholog...

    (e ARC received via Netgalley) This novel had immense potential, but it was uneven in terms of plot, pacing, and the execution of the story. It is basically dipped in Orisha mythology and the Yoruba folklore. I was eager to read this book because of the awesome description in Goodre...

    So. Very. Disappointing. Like, seriously, I expected better. David Mogo, a half God who is also extremely complaining and way too proud person, decides to take up a job that looks impossible. Now, we all know how the story of demigods goes. Sprinkle a lot of self-righteous speech, wi...

    I was sent an eARC of this through NetGalley for my honest feedback. I really liked the premise of this story but sadly, it didn't grip me as much as I wanted. Bit of a confusing start, jumps right into the story without giving the reader enough background to be invested. Li...
