Mar 18, 2008"Nothing like it!" I have been looking for a book like this for a long time. It has action, spirituality, conspiracy theory,violence and...fantasy. Somehow Kigh puts these things together and it all makes sence. The story begins with the main character Nadia Combwood as a small child communicating by thought with a mysterious man. We find out later that this man is Jabril: an angel-like character that watches over her. We find out later why she gets this special treatment. Then the story jumps into the present where Combwood is a fugative of the law. An FBI Agent wakes up tied up and naked facing a promise from Combwood to give him the truth. Here you get the first hint that Combwood and Deets have some kind of spiritual bond when Deets revisits a dream he had as a child. A dream very similar to one Combwood has later in the book. We then meet Antony, a young black boy trying to survive in the projects. This story spans one chapter and I became so wrapped up in it that I... More > forgot to wonder how his character will tie in to the fugitive Combwood. There is constant symbolism and refreshing twist almost by page. It is hard to say too much without spoilers. But you come to a point where your reading a manuscript in first person by Combwood and it's a back track into her past childhood years where we get a real good taste of the fantasy to come when her grandmother tells a story of a incident with a Djinn and a suggestion that Nadia's mother is a Djinn too. And then later a frightening nail biting incident when she travels into a swamp with her FBI class buddy. There is so much more. This will be an epic piece. I would suggest this book to anyone who loves fantasy or urban fiction. I can't wait for the second part.< Less
