Memphis “M” Engle is stubborn to a fault, graced with an almost absurd knowledge of long lost languages and cultures, and a heck of an opponent in a fight. In short: she’s awesome.

Ashwin Sood is a little too posh for her tastes, a member of an ancient cult (which she’s pretty sure counts for more than one strike against him), and has just informed Memphis that her father who she thought was dead isn’t and needs her help.

From the catacombs of Paris to lost temples in the sacred forests, together they crisscross the globe, searching for the pieces of the one thing that might save her father. But the closer they come to saving him—and the more they fall for one another—the closer they get to destroying the world.

Book Review

A Country of Extra Ordinary Ghosts is one of the craziest books I’ve read featuring Nigerians, because of the debauchery that occurs throughout this story. It was the major theme. The Bad Side of Lust. I swear this should have been the title because the book really showcases how uncontrolled lust can be a detriment in our lives.

As much as I enjoyed this story, I have a lot of bones to pick with it. First and foremost, The jump from one world to another is quite alarming. We are in Sodom one minute and we are arriving in Lagos, Nigeria the next. But then again the pacing of the story is that of a train on track moving at full speed.Read More »
