“A unique, powerfully written narrative! Fascinating, interesting characters populate a little known series of events – the author masterfully recreates a culture and a land that really need further representation among the books published today. The story of Gadaffou and Shommo seems epic and functions on many levels. A grand piece of storytelling!”
