Azzy by Mobi D’Ark @mobithailand
“Azzy” is the first of six novels in a series dedicated to “The six wives of Mobi D’Ark”. The novels are based on the life and times of a heavy drinking, much wedded and much-travelled English adventurer, who caroused and debauched his way across four continents, making and losing several fortunes along the way. Mobi married his first wife in 1970, and his last wife, forty-four years later, in 2014.
In this, the first novel of the series, it is 1969 and the young adventurer flees from his new life in North America and decides to take a job working for the oil industry in West Africa. It is a time when Nigeria was still adjusting to its post-colonial era and is in the throes of a bloody civil war.
Nigeria is Mobi’s home for the next two and half years and this is where he belatedly experiences his sexual awakening and has many erotic adventures, before – and after – meeting the sensuous, hot-blooded, volatileAzzy, a gorgeous young black girl from the bars of Lagos.
“Azzy” is a tale of whimsy, sex, drama, violence, black magic and cliff-hanging adventures. Mobi’s sexual awakening, his brushes with African Juju and his skirmishes with the out of control military are all graphically described in a tale which the reader will find hard to put down.
