The Clay Queen (The Children of Clay Book 1) by Ono Ekeh

With her armies defeated, Queen Nouei’s enemies march north to capture her. The earth god’s only hope is to alter history before they arrive. To become stronger she must restart her divine journey by reincarnating as Bridget Blade. But what if Bridget doesn’t want to be a god?
All Bridget wants is a simple life with love and family. But she is confronted by a destiny she doesn’t even understand and burdened by powers and impulses she struggles to control. Bridget must choose a path that leads her to Nouei or, must force the Queen to settle for Bridget’s modest ambitions.
Two women, two destinies, one life. Who will prevail?

A little about Ono first:

02
Ono Ekeh was an avid reader of George Orwell’s 1984. He would purchase a copy every year in hopes that the ending would change. He has since figured out that the secret of being a successful author is in creating unsatisfying endings.
He’s also not very good at humor.

 

Sherry Terry’s Review: 4.7-Stars

The Clay Queen was very different than anything I’ve ever read, and I loved it. This is not my “go-to” genre for pleasure, but I’m so glad I read it. Ono Ekeh has opened my eyes to new things. I like the cover. It is simple and the woman is beautiful. Although it didn’t give me any sense of what the book would be about, I think it fits the story perfectly.
The writing is well done and the story is well researched. I’m a romance lover, and while this isn’t a romance per-say, The Clay Queen is a love story. Full of devotion and sacrifices. I find paranormal aspects in the story with Bridget’s abilities, and Jeremy is willing to do anything to save her.

Lots of tense, on the edge moments that will keep you turning the page with a rich history, sprinkled throughout the story. There were a couple of scenes I felt were a bit of a repeat, but it didn’t take away from my overall experience.
I recommend this book to everyone who likes to read. Give it a shot, you will be pleasantly surprised.

RA Winter’s Review: 4.5-Stars

Sorry, my review is late!  I wrote this quickly, sorry, I have too much going on right now for an in-depth review but this is one fantastic read.

The Clay Queen was a very interesting read.  For those of you who love dystopian and science fiction, this will be a fantastic read.  The prologue really intrigued me with its premise.  Two gods.  One wants to change the present and creates multiple past timelines to secure his future.

The writing is great- fluid and tense.  Action packed and tension-filled, this is a wonderful read.

The beginning reminded me of Star Trek, and I’m a huge fan of all science fiction.  Time never stands still in this story, it’s ever-changing.

Bridget’s and Jeremy’s characters shine.  She with her paranormal abilities and his with his willingness to do anything to save her. They make the story, pushing us forward with every change.

I’m sure readers will love this as much as me. Pick up your copy today.
