Nina of the Dark product reviews

Against the forces of evil and night, who will stand true?

Slave-born, fated to seek a terrible truth from lost centuries, her only allies are a thief, a giant and an ancient prophecy. Together, they must seek answers to shrouded mysteries and resolve the fate of their world...but first they must survive a haunted landscape of monsters and ruthless lords.

Unknown to her companions, the girl has another battle, uniquely her own. Before she can face the ungodly creatures who threaten humanity with a new age of darkness and evil incarnate, she must first defeat the darkness within herself. She is Nina of the Dark, thrust unwilling into a legacy of nightmare and violence.

In a world balanced perilously on the edge of an abyss, she is the last hope... and she is afraid.

This is a really good book but I would have liked to have known more about the characters (eg. their backgrounds histories and personal stories). Maybe the author will develop these in other books as a series.

The twists and turns of a young girl coming of age, from a slave's point of view is really heartwarming, and in this book I did lose myself to where the author was taking me. Bravo!

I hope Ken continues with another "Nina" book. I think this book makes a good foretaste of things to come from this Kiwi author. Well done.

Twenty-five years ago, young Liam's small fishing village on the Irish Coast was raided and its population decimated by brutal corsair pirates from the Barbary Coast who killed, plundered, and took a number of his people back to Northern Africa as slaves to Muslim masters.

And now a pirate ship has been wrecked in Liam's bay, and survivors are struggling ashore
