HAWI #1: Historical Fantasy featuring an African Superhero

From the Kickstarter page:



HAWI is a historical fantasy story set in present day Ethiopia. When a mysterious stranger kidnaps the mother of 20 year old Ement Legesse on their first trip back to Ethiopia, she must embark on a life-altering adventure embedded with historical conflict.

HAWI is inspired by the story of a 10th century AD Ethiopian Queen, Yodit Gudit. Yodit is known for the destruction of the Axumite empire. In Amharic (Ethiopian National Language), she is nicknamed “Esato”, meaning “Fire”, for her reputation of burning architectural landmarks and churches after battle victories. Evidences of her destruction still remain in the rock-hewn churches of northern Ethiopia. She is a subject of great mystery. Her motives have been lost in the records of time…..Or have they?
