A Brilliant Literary Experience
on January 17, 2017
My first read by this awesomely talented author. The story kept me completely engaged and in wonderment. It was pretty genius how the Tananarive Due combined the past and present of this immortal's, at times, painful life, who by his description fell straight from heaven, a perfect specimen of a man. I could really envision his beauty. I tell you, there were moments the story had me torn, flip flopping between the right and the wrong of it all. I had a moment of compassion for Dawit. His love for his mortal family and understanding the turmoil of experiencing death, but never die while all dies around him. It's hard to fathom. I enjoyed this book to the very last drop!
