This year in the first part of the Summer Book Fair, I will be revisiting some of the new books on the shelves promotions for the last six months. It offers not just an opportunity to boost the book but also to share a follow up review. Later on in the series I will also be sharing my recommended books from the last 12 months and one of their more current reviews. Not all the books are newly published but they are new to the Smorgasbord Bookshelf.
The first book today which was published in May this year is by Jude Itakali – Broken Ties: Book 2 Realms of the Mist with illustrations by Colleen Chesebro.
About the book
Kamau, Ninuwe and Kena, are bound by the trials of their recent past, and forced onto a dark and magical quest through the Gifted realms of Africa. They must assemble the God-killer, an ancient weapon that can destroy the Evil One. The problem is; the Evil One has irreversibly merged with Kamau’s once closest and only friend, Irina.
War is brewing. Monsters are slipping into the greater human world. Gods are toying with them. The mission demands sacrifices that seem too costly to pay, and yet they must also navigate a desperate love triangle and the personal ambitions of young adults.
With allies who blur into enemies, will Kamau and his friends find the strength to sacrifice anything, And do whatever it takes. Can they give up all that they hold dear, to save people they barely know?
