The opposing forces move to confront each other on the continent of Nyumbani and Imaro finds himself a pawn in events beyond his control.
As he seeks to avenge a great wrong which has been done to him, a journey which starts as one of simple vengeance may lead to answers about his origins and the role he has to play in the unfolding events across the continent.

"The Trail of Bohu" is the third book in the Imaro series and "Sword and Soul" at its best. Yet another great read from Charles R Saunders

Das Ende des "Sohns-keines-Vaters"

Imaro wird sesshaft: Nach seiner Ankunft in Cush hat sich der grimmige Ilyassai einen Ruf als Arena-Kämpfer erarbeitet. Mit diesem Ruhm, seiner Frau Tanisha und seinem Sohn Kilewo soll es nun ein bisschen weniger Action sein, und als Schmied-Azubi scheint sich selbst für den unruhigen Imaro endlich etwas Frieden in sein Leben zu schleichen. Doch die Erriten schlafen nicht, und sie treffen Imaro an der Stelle, an der es ihn am meisten schmerzt.

I wanted to read one of Charles Saunders Imaro books because of what he wrote in the forward of Octavia Butler's Kindrred, " I wanted to write a black man who would kick Tarzan"s ass." Imaro, and I agree with the fantasy historians, owes more to RLH's Conan and his ilk that ERB's Tarzan. Imaro's ancient Africa does resemble historical Africa, but only a little (no evil priests invoking power from those who cannot/shall be named in historical Africa to my knowledge). The pluses are in 220 pages S ...more

The third book in the Imaro series is a different animal from the first two. It's a complete novel rather than a series of interconnected short stories and novellas fit together in a novel-length book. That has the effect of making it much harder to put down, since you don't get the same sense of satisfaction when you get to the end of a "chapter" that you got with the first two books. That also explains why I got it read in about four evenings' time. It's great. You always want to know what's g ...more

This was a bad ending to the trilogy. I won't go into detail for fear of spoiling the ending for some, but the ending was already spoiled for me. The other two in the series were great, but this one left me feeling let down.

Had to order this bad boy from England. And it was worth it too. Another must read from the great Charles R. Saunders.
