As the opposing forces clash across the continent of Nyumbani, Imaro finally confronts this nemesis!
Charles Saunders has created a rich and vibrant world full of heroic characters, mythical creatures, magic and sorcery. "The Naama War" is the fourth episode of the Imaro series and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys the Sword and Soul genre.

Five whole stars!

I was disappointed when I finished The Trail of Bohu and discovered that the tale was left wide open. For some fans, the wait for book four was 30+ years. Lucky for me, it was 30+ days.

This book is only available through Lulu.com. I had my reservations, they were proven unfounded. Lulu makes a nice paperback. Thick glossy cover and thick good quality paper within. Very satisfied with this paperback.

The story picks up where The Trail of Bohu leaves us. The continent is marching t

I have never read a more fantastic and amazing adventure. The beauty is that it is set in a fictional Africa. The entire series were filled with many twists and turns, trials and tribulations, but Imaro always prevailed.

Nachdem Fans gefühlte Jahrhunderte mit einem Cliffhanger am Ende von The Trail of Bohu, dem dritten Teil der Imaro-Reihe, leben mussten, kommt hier der kataklysmische letzte Teil im Selbstverlag. Eine Schande, dass originelle Fantasy wie diese keinen Verlag findet, während sich die Verlagswelt um den ganzen derivativen, stinklangweiligen High-Fantasy-Rotz prügelt. Aber das ist leider oft das Schicksal guter Literatur.

Hat sich das fast 25-jährige Warten gelohnt? Ja. Imaro fu
