Akin by Robin Murarka Robin Murarka

Genre: Literary Fiction
Page Count: 532

Book Description:
Akin takes place in a time void of technology and full of lore passed down by generations of ancient cultures. Across an arid land lay scattered city states and villages of people separated by social and political hierarchies. Through this vast archaic world, Akin manages to illustrate vivid human experiences that are unquestionably universal, regardless of the places we live or where we come from.

The novel centers on the journey of a boy whose struggle for survival begins when his thoughts and ideas begin diverging from values he was raised to follow. As he traverses into adulthood, his eyes open to truths about his family and community that his young mind had previously been incapable of understanding. Haunting memories of events witnessed as a child drift through his mind, creating rifts and questions he is forbidden to ask.

A tale of suffering, hope, and the human condition told against the grueling scenery of an immeasurable desert terrain, Akin is a powerful story brimming with a rare humanity.
