MY REVIEW: I was provided with a copy of the book by the author in exchange for an honest review.
The story is set on the island of Bali. Neer, a priest from the Himalayas, travels to Bali as he has been having visions that the island is in trouble. On his voyage, he meets the Prince of Bali, Erlangga, who informs him that his vision is indeed true and that Bali is under attack by evil spirits.
Upon reaching Bali, Neer attempts to find a way to thwart the evil spirits on the island. He is aided by Erlangga and Empu. Neer soon learns that no one is to be trusted on the island as the evil spirits have their hold everywhere and no plan of theirs seems to succeed.
Finally Neer thinks about introducing new gods to the island of Bali.
Will Neer succeed in his mission to save the island of Bali? Will Erlangga be able to have a peaceful reign over Bali as king? The reader needs to read the book to find that out.
The author has ended the story in a way that makes one wonder whether he is planning a sequel.
I recommend this book to readers as fairly engaging and interesting.
