There is a very thin line dividing the land of the living and the land of the dead, so thin that spirits from both lands coexist. Sometimes, during the story, it is difficult to differentiate between the living and the dead. Both have bodies; the living existing in their bodies, while the dead exist in (are using) borrowed bodies.
Fifteen-year-old Osondu has disappeared. His mother goes searching for her son and faces the same fate. She too goes missing.
The gods are ever present, in control, and minister to both the living and the dead. This is because the gods minister to the spirits, not the bodies that harbor them. To the gods, the spirits of both the living and the dead are ever alive.
The world of the traditional Igbo society is a world in which the dead visit and interact easily with the living. It is also a world in which most of the time the living are at the mercy of the gods.

Mystical and Mythical.
Strangely compelling. I won this book in a Blog Tour party. As I'd read Mirror of Our Lives by the same author I knew I was in for a unique experience. Beautiful descriptive passages transported me to mystical realms and gave me some insights into Nigerian culture. One of life's big questions is: "What happens when we die?" And this story is certainly thought provoking.
