Drums of Sunrise


“This book is a product of articulate and reflective exploration of facts about a typical pre-Christian Igbo community, Umuabali, characterized by some heinous practices, such as the worship of many deities and the Osu caste system. Through the advent of Christianity, there was a transition from Umuabali (children of darkness) to Umuihe (children of light). I praise the reflective and imaginative prowess of the author in this epic. I therefore recommend this masterpiece to all who wish to understand how Christianity can bring light to our darkened world by beating the ‘Drums of Sunrise.’” —Rev. Fr. Paschal Chiekezi “Sixtus Chetachi Igbokwe has in this novel, ‘Drums of Sunrise,’ disclosed his intellectual identity, personality, capacity, potentiality, and prowess in creative writing. The novel teaches love, hard work, dedication, perseverance, humility, patience and discourages pride, egotism, vainglory, and deceit. I recommend that this book be made compulsory for all students. I also recommend it to the public. It is a must-read for every home. I congratulate Sixtus Chetachi Igbokwe for the job well done.” —Dr. (Mrs.) Nma Olebara (FCAI) “‘Drums of Sunrise’ is a captivating story set in Southeastern Nigeria during the pre-Colonial era of the 1890s. Sixtus Chetachi Igbokwe has, in his debut, presented us with an insight into the African-Igbo society, a people who share their life from their culture and later embraced Christianity by the coming of the white men. This moment became a turning point in their life. I praise the author’s creativity and therefore recommend this book to the general public.” —Chief (Mrs.) Theresa Okonkwo
