Kush Kingdom Publications announces new novel by author Amanishakhete (Uh-ma-nee-sha-keet). Wrong Daughter: Night of the Blood Moon is slated for oﬃcial release this winter solstice on Dec. 21.
A third novel for this emerging author, Amanishakhete has created a story, connecting the universe to the Earth world, dating as far back as the stone age. It quickly moves into the Mali and Songhai, West African dynasties of the 1600s, moving on to Amsterdam, Netherlands, to Albany, New York, and ﬁnally Baldwin, Alabama where the battle will be fought against the dark lord and his minions.
In the 1900s, the ﬁctitious town of Baldwin was built exclusively for Dutch immigrants, known as Towners, who died from an outbreak of smallpox following their hanging of an enslaved African prince in 1636. It is with his royal blood, the town founder Thonis Baldwin, reconstructed the town with the help of a former lightworker from the upper light realm. Towners returned to enjoy life immortal and wealth but not without impending consequences.
The Wrong Daughter also taps into the worlds below Earth referred to as the three dark realms. The ﬁrst ruled by Luciferno (Lucifer), the second by Satana (Satan), and the third by Apollyon Diabolus—all three energies are fallen Semperian Guards. It is the third dark realm that will attempt to overtake Earth and the entire universe on the solstice blood moon of 1925.
The Universe, including the dark realms, were designed by Semperian, an energy spawned from Source. Semperian sends its Daughter to Earth as human to stop the rise of the third dark realm, created to hold the Apollyon energy for 17 centuries. As prophesized in the Knowledge of Semperian, spiritual writings only revealed to the followers of Semperian, before she was born into the world her own mother conspired with the village witch to murder her. To replace her with another version of predominately Dutch heritage. Inside mama’s womb, the Daughter will defend herself against the demonic force created by Apollyon and his loyal soldier Luna. Once a lightworker, Luna was sentenced to Earth for her betrayal to Semperian and given an opportunity to right her wrong. But instead, she allowed herself to be seduced by the Apollyon energy.
Wrong Daughter was ﬁrst conceived while Amanishakhete (pen name) was completing her Master of Fine Arts Degree (MFA) in Fiction. Her professors urged her to complete the novel which she ﬁnalized during National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) last year in 2022.
One professor, an evaluator of her ﬁnal Thesis project wrote, “You are an exceptional writer, with incredible range; your strongest suit is your ability to weave a tale, you are a novelist and storyteller with a unique voice.”
Amanishakhete worked tirelessly to put the ﬁnal changes on the novel and set it for release this solstice. Winter solstice is also primary in the story, where the blood moon will determine which daughter will make it to the Hanging Tree on the solstice blood moon in 1925. Their destinies will collide, forcing a new world created in light or one in darkness ruled by Apollyon Diabolus Fallen 17 of the third dark realm.
Fans of Octavia Butler and Tony Morrison, including magical realism and fantasy readers should include Wrong Daughter on their reading lists. Distributed through IngramSpark, Wrong Daughter will be sold on Amazon and a host of online retailers.
