Beautiful story telling, imaginative, and something you’re going to want to finish after a few lines. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It’s definitely a great read. I won’t say much more... You must read it for yourself. Just be prepared for realism within the fantasy. It tells quite the story. 5 stars.

I'm probably biased, but that's not what you expect to read first.
So, I'll skip right to the good part: the feel of this story, the setting and most of all the characters.

If you are into the surreal and love how fantasy can consume you, then this is what you ought to read.
I love the pace and how the author creates the setting for the story, it's almost as though you have teasers that build up to the ending.

If you are looking to read this just to be entertained, then you'll miss out on the unde

This was an enthralling read! I read this a few months ago in one sitting. I could see the village and the valley almost as clearly as if I was seeing it. I want to see this story expanded into a universe. There is so much potential for a longer story, more stories. I already adore the Wayushei.

I've had the ebook for about two months and now I absolutely regret not having read it immediately. Im starved for more from this universe. Definitely something I'd recommend to anyone looking for African fantasy. The characters are engaging and the narrative style is akin to traditional oral stories only more engaging. A bloody good origin tale

This is a beautiful read. Initially, I started out rather confused by all the mythicism and all, and wondered for a bit where it was headed. Then it got good, then really good, then it ended, leaving me wanting a bit more.
Great read either way.

Took me a while to get the flow, and I also got turned around a bit with the barrage of characters at the start. But I have thoroughly enjoyed reading Jiwe and look forward to more from this author.
