SHADOWS OF EXILE
RETURN OF THE AFRICAN KING
Synopsis: On the eve of the Malian king’s announcement of a plan to help all in the nation prosper, his cunning brother commits an unspeakable act. With the Royal House Of Mansa in turmoil, Musa, the young heir to Africa’s richest and most powerful dynasty, is forced to flee his home in fear for his life. What he finds beyond Mali’s borders is a world that doesn’t know and doesn’t care that he was once part of a great country’s wealthy and well-traveled elite. Stripped of all he holds dear including his identify, Musa seeks safe harbor amid a throng of equally imperiled migrants, vulnerable to smugglers, cons, and indifferent government organizations. To survive, he must reinvent himself, but at what cost to his sense of self ?

Meet Momar Njai, author and storyteller.
Momar was born into Gambia’s prominent Njai family of The Lion House. Following a military coup in 1994, several members of the family, including Momar, went into exile. Shadows Of Exile is a novel inspired by his experiences. Like Musa, Momar arrived in the US penniless, and like many immigrants he lived in the shadows at first. He credits the kindness, open heartedness, and goodwill of the people he met along his journey for his survival and eventual success. He currently lives in the San Francisco Bay area, and is very passionate about using technology to transform lives, especially in developing countries.
Thanks for overwhelming support and interest in my first novel.
