In the second half of the twentieth century, the future bears down on Africa--fueled by the sins of the past and the blood feuds of nations, tribes, and families. For the Courtney family, who have known this continent from the depths of its gold mines to the pinnacle of political power, a time of reckoning is at hand.

Shasa Courtney has lived, fought and loved amongst Afrikaners, Englishmen, and natives. His mother is by his side but the rest of the world around him is exploding. Even his family harbors secrets more dangerous than his own worst enemies.

Now, a continent is convulsed. Streets teem with protestors. Desperate and devious men forge volatile alliances. And Shasa faces shocking revelations amongst traitors, fugitives, and heroes--leading a beloved country into the flames of civil war.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rage First read this book when it was first published and enjoyed it. Just reread it again in relation to Burning shore and power of the sword! Totally absorbing and thouroughly entertaining. Such real descriptions of Africa from flora and flora to high veld and jungle. A master class from the author.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Boring!!! This is the longest book without a point I have ever read! So many characters, so many tangents, 500 pages into it I still didn't know who's story I was supposed to follow. Don't waste your time with this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rocks the casbah! I read this book 4 years ago, back when I was foolish and young. 3/4 of the way through the book I went to the last two pages and read the ending, because I thought that I had figured out the ending and felt that I should study instead of reading a predictable book... I have never in my life wanted to kick myself in the head so hard. The ending was magnificent. I wish I had waited until the end of the book to figure that out. Good readings!
