Dawn Of No Return: The Secret’s Night Mist Review.
Review By Jason Hills
It would suffice to say that this literal phenomenon was birthed through meticulous attention to details in a bid to create a novel storyline. It allows us to perceive time in a new light and to wholly appreciate its importance in our daily lives which we have slowly relegated to a tiny corner.
The book is a focal point where reality marries imagination in perfect harmony and said union is one that gives rise to a succinct narrative.
The writer and his sensibilities are aloof with grand ideas that push the reader to see beyond what the book has to offer, and what time can do when given the chance.
As I sped through the panel of creative sceneries painted by the writer, I had never felt closer to reality, as ills of society were undressed. His versatility was superbly employed to stake me firmly in the pages of an imaginative world which allows for violence and extremism to take on the role of purging out corruption, a necessary evil if you may.
The holistic nature of this book can be found in the way Grey’s love for his family, friends, and immovable conviction to see his mission to completion grew throughout the story. A reminder that he is before anything else, a human being propelled by desires.
The writer also allowed us a breather from the overwhelming dominance exercised by a supernatural force―Time, in the form of how it allowed for other forces like emotions to influence Grey’s decisions.
In a cut loose, yet reasonable manner, we were allowed to see the world through the writer’s eyes. This level of talent and creativity astounds me.
In conclusion, I would like to think that the writer and this book’s hero share a distinct field of experience, and that itself is another reason to be in awe. Such conciseness, such delivery, which is rarely seen in a book birthed by an African is elating beyond measure.
