A thrilling fantasy adventure, perfect for kids aged 8+

Discover a fierce and fun story of one boy versus six gods, from a magical new voice in children's fiction...

We are super excited about this thrilling new fantasy adventure - fast-paced, action-packed and full of heart and humour.


Kayode dreams of eating the forbidden fruit of the Orishas, so he can gain their power and stop those merciless beings who terrorise his people. So when a fruit mysteriously appears in his path after the Orishas snatch his sister, he leaps on it.
Surging with new and difficult-to-control powers, he joins forces with a shapeshifting trickster god and a vengeful princess to save his sister and put an end to the mighty Orishas. But each has more fearful powers than the last - and Kayode's stolen half-god strength won't last for ever...

Ashley Thorpe is a Black British debut author who works as an editor at Storymix, where he helps other writers to create epic stories.

When he isn't writing or reading, Ashley enjoys making music, outdoor pursuits, indulging in anime and gaming. He lives in Manchester. The Boy to Beat the Gods is his first book.
