After the death of his father in a battle to win freedom for his people who had been enslaved for two hundred years, Prince Irai finds himself in the middle of another battle. This battle is political and between Irai and his power hungry uncle Tomari.
There is, of course, more to the story but then I would be giving too much away. This is about the adventures of a young king who leads his people home and the decisions he must make in order for his people to fulfill their destiny. It is a story which will keep the reader enchanted and cheering on the boy-king as he finds himself making grown up decisions and how he fairs with them.
The final chapter will leave the reader wondering whether Irai’s story will continue or whether it has already said everything which needed to be said, thus leading the reader’s imagination to their own conclusions. I found this to be a very good adventure story with a positive message about how to overcome obstacles in one’s life no matter what one’s station in life is. The timeline is roughly around 44,000 BCE and the Continental Drift is pretty much settled. Mr. Orr has transported us to a time of which we have no written history and thus gives the reader a chance to fill in those historical blanks. It is very well written and I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys action adventure stories. I give it 4 stars out of 5.
