Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite Shadows of Yesterday by Azubike Okwudili Eze revolves around Bari King who is a Niger Delta militant leader. His fierce image always underscored the seriousness of his intentions. Though he is into kidnapping, blackmail, and other nefarious activities, Bari King calls himself a freedom fighter who is trying to liberate his people from the shackles of poverty and environmental degradation with the limited resources they have there. His unhappiness over the presence of Shell Petroleum Company Development, that claims to have spent a lot of money on community development there, is obvious and he is now pleased with their ousting from his land. His peace of mind is disturbed when his sister, Oroma, falls in love with his French captive, Gerard. Dark thoughts come into his mind. Things take a different turn when he meets Agila, the famed medicine man who helps him to find a new way of being. The story takes readers on the journey of transformation of Bari King, from that of being a ruthless person to a person whose spirit has become light after having some dross washed away from him. It is interesting to note the changes in Bari King as he lets go of his ego and his fierceness to embrace feelings of expansiveness. The characters are strongly portrayed, making them real, relatable, and memorable to readers. The story has action and I like the manner in which the author gives an interesting twist to the plot as it reaches the conclusion.
