What people say

Jesse Jones

I have to say I’m am absolutely astounded with your book. I got back home from the event and started reading once the kid and the lady went to bed, I couldn’t put the book the down, I ended up reading the whole book in one sitting. The message was weaved into the story so perfectly, each chapter just didn’t  seem like it was enough for the soul. I am so thankful that I was able to make it to your event in time to experience the whole event. Please keep doing what you do, this world needs it. I needed it. – Rated: ♥♥♥♥♥

In The Press
“The book opens with a gripping scene of verbal attack, dropping us right in an engaging scene and establishing our main character. We get a sense of his role in life, and author uses an expert hand at illustrating the brutality of punishment. Intrigue levels are high. Author does a spectacular job with scenery, imbuing the setting with experiential sensory details. We get a sense of the earth, of air thickness, the sparkle of stars – all work to ground the reader in the scene. Very well done. Dialogue shines, as author has differentiated characters’ voices and backgrounds. I enjoyed the description of the pirates as ‘unruly farmers with knives,’ as one example of the author’s great talent for physical description. Pace carries us along well, avoiding any lull in the middle of the book, and using transitions between chapters to create a fine cadence and structure. Well done. Haziq is an effective teacher and protector, one of the most well-rounded characters of the book. The ending is gorgeous, with the barefoot run through the olive groves, conveying movement, texture, and freedom. Very well done."
