Bitter about the fate of his people, Apollis feels he must shed blood to restore to them their land and dignity. Harry, unable to overcome his past, steps out of his comfort zone on the last day of his life.
When they meet, the place that birthed them all, burns.
Böhmke has brought to life a wonderful South African tale that has amazing mystery; thriller and suspense aspects to it. Böhmke is a talented writer and has really captured a magical story with a lot of interesting characters.
The book itself is great quality and the printed text is easy to read.
I struggled a bit with the changing between the characters story but this is something I struggle with in most books. Although Böhmke does make a remarkable effort at making sure the characters are still easy to follow; there were some instances where I felt that the story dragged a little too long or the characters changed too soon. I felt that sometimes I was missing pieces and had to back track to see where I was.
Böhmke develops his characters and his stories well and I found that I was happy at some of the characters development and shocked at the others. Although I did find that the ending was a bit unsatisfying as I felt that there were so questions left unanswered.
Overall it was a good story that I enjoyed travelling through. It was interesting to see how the characters plots played out and it really did keep me in suspense of what could happen next – Böhmke has a very natural talent for writing plot twists.
