About the Book

The Sound of War is a heart-warming story about a group of Africans who have turned away from the vision their ancestors fought for. This shift becomes important when a new king ascends the throne of Umuisa. Metu, as the young king is called, throws culture and tradition to the wind. He refers to their culture as archaic, changes the system of government, and spurs a riot among his people. Furthermore, he declares his intention to demolish some sacred statues in the village square, which are symbols of their gods. Chioma, the oldest person in the land, won’t let that happen. She gathers the villagers and tells them the actual story of how those monuments came to be. While telling the story, she tells them how Umuisa came into existence.
