Review Text

In this story of fifteen-year-old Raani, the son of the Khan, and his relentless struggle to earn the right to leadership over his people, Rene Guillot once more demonstrates his ability to recreate an obscure period with unusual clarity. In order to gain ascendance over the Indian jungle province, Raani must not only vanquish his cunning and dishonest rival, but he must become, himself, a jungle creature, anointed by animal as well as man. Much fascinating detail of Hindu life under the reign of Kali, the Goddess of destruction, occurs here giving substance to the well written and suspenseful adventure tale. By the author of The Elephants of Sargabal, The 397th White Elephant, Tom-Toms in Kotokro, and The Wind of Chance. (Kirkus Reviews)show more
