Book 2 is as superior an adventure as book one. But prepare for heartfelt dismay and disappointment. I don't want to ruin the story in any way so I won't comment on the ending any further except to say that it reflects the horror and unrelenting pain of real life. The main part of the story was everything one would expect from a first class writer that knows her stuff and writes with explicit authenticity. Also very timely. I have closely followed the battles with ISIS in real time. Looking back. I find that the author had quite a grip on their ideology without getting preachy, political or, god forbid, politically correct. On to book three and the superb, Amie.

Reviewed by Eric Smith for Readers' Favorite Amie and The Child of Africa by Lucinda E Clarke is an adventure story set in the heart of Africa. This is the second book in the Amie series. Amie had just gotten married and was living comfortably near London when her husband, Jonathon, announced the news that his work was moving them to Africa. Amie was just settling into the new ways of Togodo when civil war broke out, further complicating the way of life in Africa. With politics and the war ongoing all around her, Amie sets off to find the child she was fostering before war erupted. But she’s up against a terrorist organization that has ties to many different nations. Amie doesn’t know whom she can trust. She faces many dangers, from the African wildlife to men of different political affiliations who would kill her in a heartbeat if she messed up their political plans. I enjoyed the historical content within Amie and The Child of Africa. The setting is very well researched and Lucinda E Clarke obviously knows this area well. Her knowledge makes this a very enjoyable and fascinating read. I learned a lot about this culture and I was fascinated by the explanations Clarke had for things I had never even stopped to consider. The setting was beautifully described and really made this a wonderful read. I also enjoyed the politics and the danger that surrounded this area and Amie’s quest. I liked that heightened level of danger and felt it made the adventure part of the story that much more exciting.
