“It’s a thrilling adventure story with all the necessary components: a briskly moving plot that builds to a climax and resolves a believable conflict satisfactorily, and enough sociopolitical thematic elements to add depth and resonance.”

“I found that the book captivated me from the first few pages. Even from the first chapter, the air of mystery was built and made it hard to stop reading, I just wanted to find out what happened! I also feel like the book is giving me a really good insight into what the lifestyle of an expat is like, and I find that a very interesting aspect of the novel.” Jade Kenna.
