Is there something else, deep in her soul, that is keeping her spirited resolve aflame?

Her help comes from an unexpected source.

An accomplished political thriller that’s packed with intrigue, and suspense.

Broken Lands by Boaz Klachkin is a wonderfully written and richly descriptive novel with brilliantly drawn characters. The author weaves a well-crafted political thriller with intriguing twists and turns that will captivate the reader from the first page to the last. He paints a dramatic and riveting tale of love, loss and sacrifice in a very vivid and convincing way.

It’s a fast-paced novel that will have you mesmerized from the opening chapter.

The book description gives a compelling preview: ‘Jezabilah is a widowed Palestinian freedom fighter moving up the ranks of Inkasar; the Palestinian anti-government organization.

Now, if that’s not enough to grab your attention, I don’t know what will. But if you want to find out what happens, you’ll just have to turn the pages for yourself! However, I will say it was well worth the read. It’s my first time reading this author and I must say I was very impressed.

Broken Lands had every element a good story should have. An interesting plot, attention to detail, but best of all fleshed out, well-written and well-rounded character development. There’s an abundance of well-illustrated scenes that make you feel like you are right there in the story, and that’s something I really look for in a good book.

It’s one of those stories that come along once in a while that makes you want to read it non-stop until you get to the end. I’m giving nothing further away here. And this, I hope, will only add to the mystery and enjoyment for the reader.

I’ll be looking forward to reading more from Boaz Klachkin in the future. I would highly recommend this book. A well-deserved five stars from me.
