About The Book
From the first moments I opened this book, I knew it was going to be a beautiful but difficult read and it did not disappoint. Majority of this story is set around my home country Nigeria and the truth is no matter how many terrible a nation is as a native you don’t want other people writing smack about your country. Ms. Kendig proved to be an awesome writer and did my home country justice highlighting those evils but not in a demeaning manner and for that I’m grateful.
I loved everything about this story. It’s engaging, had me turning the pages wanting to know what happened next. Willow’s spunk and determination, her fighting spirit were so admirable. I can’t imagine the fear she must have felt knowing her life was on the line but still doing her best at every opportunity to try and save the people she cared about.
Now we have Chiji. I think he’s the first Nigerian hero I’m reading about by a foreign author and boy did she do him justice. I loved him from the moment I met him. He gave off protector vibes from the start and did not fail to do just that.
The subject matter dealt with in this book is not a happy one and there are definitely moments where your heart is just so sad and burdened because of all that goes on but I love the way the author addresses these issues. She doesn’t shy away from these moments not sugar coating anything that goes on but she deals with it in a way that doesn’t make you feel too terribly.
Chiji and Willow are in a fight for their lives literally and this journey is definitely one not to be missed.
