I could not put this novel down. Nzondi has created a fascinating world for those that have survived the nuclear wars, both reality and virtual. It's a stand alone story, but a lot of things were set in motion that I would like see where those paths lead. Hopefully, a sequel is in progress.
Saving sentient beings from total extinction is a tiny part of the story. They have no idea what they are up against. This is a murder mystery. This is a story of revenge. This is a story of family and values.

An excellent example of dark Afro-futurism. Compelling, good characterization and fresh. Definitely would recommend this novel!

I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

I signed up to review as part of a blog tour. While I still love the idea, the execution rendered it unreadable for me. I couldn't finish it and had to switch to a spotlight post for the tour.

Throwing my two cents out there: Maybe setting up the game world with a previous case as a flash back intro and then diving into our troubled young MC, with more deta

I really struggled with Oware Mosaic and found large sections made little sense, making it a novel I would not recommend to YA readers. Teenagers get frustrated easily and even though it features some creative ideas, much of it is lost in stilted prose with a voice which is both dull and repetitive. Set in Ghana, some years after a massive war, scientists have developed a technology that stores consciousness on data-orbs called retcons. Through a combination of human characters and a future type ...more

what did I see

First let me say I am a romance, murder, thriller reader. I'm not sure what I read in the book intro that made me order this book. I started out reading and wondering what I had gotten into. But before I knew it I was on chapter 4. I decided to stop firing it. The next thing I knew I was 1/2 way through. I have to say I really enjoyed my time in this book.
