Rena Barron has taken her own experiences and the folk tales of her culture to give a book which pulsated with the magic of her words. The characters were real but magical. They showed the emotions that made the story bigger than a tale and richer than a folklore. Arrah was wonderful as the main character. She was strong and more powerful than the people with magic. Her magic came from the purity of her heart and not in the pride of her actions.
The prose was rich as if the roots of the soul was being written in the ink of tradition and magic. The power of the words gripped me with the depth, pulling me into the story. The drums beating in the book found a matching thrum in my veins. I love dark fantasies where the villain makes the presence felt. And every time Rena wrote about the villain, it had an answering bubbles of excitement eager to burst forth out of me.
This book was pure emotions and raw beauty. It was rich with its diverse and complex worldbuilding. It was filled with the darkness that murders, violence, evil witchdoctors, and a demon could bring. Every word took me on a path of no return. I wanted to stay in this world which may be harsh and antagonizing but had a beauty of its own. Nothing prepared me for this book. I sank into it with a strange joy of surrender.
