Book Review

Trade Winds to Meluhha

Set in the Bronze age, this story takes place in Mesopotamia and the Indus Valley. I think it is quite a unique book as I have never read another with a similar setting. Starting off, this already attracts a reader as it is not run of the mill or recycled information in new wrapping.

Samasin is a young boy, who is quite calmly living his life, day after day of routine stretching into the distance, when one morning something happens to change all of that.

Murder is a heavy charge and Samasin doesn’t see an easy way out, but that was before an amazing event in the heavens took place.

On a search to find the person belonging to the name the murdered man whispered with his last breath, Samasin makes his way on a treacherous and exciting adventure to Meluhha. With Ann, a woman he met on his journey, Samasin does not only find love but he also finds a special tablet that leads to more escapades, danger and excitement than he could ever have imagined.

Gone is the stable boy, Samasin must learn how to be a man in an involved game with many facets.

This intriguing book is not only an adventure for Samasin, but also for the reader who is drawn into an ancient world that is vividly brought to life through carefully researched facts and colourful descriptions.

I love historical fiction books and will be looking out for more from this author!
