I knew about slavery and the slave trade before, but this story gives a whole new perspective to it. There’s so much action that there’s not a boring moment. The whole time I’m intrigued by Mungo’s quest for revenge.
The writing seems consistent with the time period that it’s set in. The story is told in third person, but the perspective will shift to give more insight into what others are thinking and feeling, so you get a first person perspective. I also like that the story switches between Mungo and Camilla, telling the whole story of what’s happening.
There was enough detail to really draw me in and visualize what’s happening. But not too much that it took away from the story. I especially liked that in some instances it was just summarized what happened in the past several days or weeks, to not draw out the book more than it needed to be.
