Product description

Review

Proves that the best science fiction can be not only socially relevant and thought-provoking, but entertaining . . . a brilliantly reimagined near-future Africa . . . he interweaves ecological and political intrigue with Senegalese folk myths to tell the ultimately uplifting story of a continent sadly neglected in SF. -- Eric Brown ― GUARDIAN

Uncannily in tune with the time it was written . . . at once dreamlike and harrowingly believable, this is not a comforting read. It is, however, a gripping and frightening one. ― SFX magazine

A multi-layered narrative that builds momentum and depth and inexorably draws the reader in . . . there is a dignity to this book, a quiet power and charm that breathes life into its pages . . . this is a book of prophetic realism, determined optimism and magical storytelling that sets it apart. ― SFCROWSNEST

Timely and intelligent . . . blends magic realism and action to poetic and thrilling ends . . . it's packed full of fun, danger, stolen moments and hypocrisy - much like the modern world. ― SCiFiNOW

As speculative fiction it is completely on the money . . . an important commentary on present-day headlines and a prescient warning of what we can expect if our ways do not change . . . highly readable . . . Chait is a very good writer, juggling several emotionally powerful concepts with the timeless magic of aural storytelling. ― STARBURST magazine --This text refers to the paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

We tell stories to hold on to what has been loved and lost.
To sustain our memories.
To create new myths . . .

An aid-worker is betrayed while helping thousands escape a massacre. A secretive businessman wages clandestine war against a ruthless energy cartel.

An air convoy – its illicit cargo destined for hostile militants – vanishes over the Sahara.

Meanwhile, as millions fleeing famine, genocide and environmental collapse seek refuge across the Mediterranean, their genii begin to intrude into reality.

And deep within the desert something precious and terrible has been lost – something which could overwhelm them all . . .

Thrilling and unnervingly prescient, this daring novel of where our future may take us fulfils all the promise
of Gavin Chait’s acclaimed debut, Lament for the Fallen. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
