Queen of the Fields tells the story of a 251-year-old man who is desperate to return to the past by spilling the blood of a 21-year-old virginal reincarnated orisa.
The upcoming dark romance Queen of the Fields is written by Bestselling Romance Author Tomilola Coco Adeyemo and it tells the story of Ajagbo, a 19th century Prince who is betrayed by the two people he trusts the most and is tossed into the future. Now he seeks vengeance through the blood of a reincarnated Orisa, Tundun who he must protect until her blood is ripe enough for his age-long ritual.
Tomilola is not new to creating dark worlds with Alpha males and strong-willed and independent female leads in the romance genre. A multiple Okadabooks bestselling Author, the Writer’s ‘Rich kids of Lagos series’ has gathered her a cult following in the Nigerian literary space.
In Queen of the Fields, the Author takes a big leap into a fantastical world where she explores Yoruba spirituality, reincarnation, and the length human beings will go for power.
Ajagbo the male lead has reasons for his return to the past – even if he may not have laid bare all his cards. For over a century, he has waited patiently for the Orisa whose blood will take him back on one last journey for vengeance. He’s prepared for everything except the unfamiliar need to protect and an unusual fondness that he feels when the final ingredient in his ritual comes along. She’s a frail little thing who life has dealt with and now he finds himself protecting her and even falling for her.
Ajagbo finds himself in a dilemma. And worse, the past repeats itself. Except for this time, the consequences are quite dire.
Queen of the Fields is the first of two books in the Fated Duet and is slated for a December release.
