Fortunately Quatermain sees through her witchcraft. The Zulu king declares Mameena a witch and sentences her to death for many offenses, including causing a civil war. The saga continues as she is granted one last wish that dramatically changes everything.

child of storm
The story would be very interesting to those intrigued by the Zulu kingdom and its relationship to the white settlers. It is filled with mystery and magic. I did not feel excitement or passion as I followed the protaganist, the white trader Alain Quartermain, through Zululand's political turmoil. Or sense the power the nyanga (medicine man) Zakali exerted over the native bantu people.
I enjoyed it none the less. Written in time of when slavery was prevalent. I felt Haggard's narrative of the Zulu nation was surprising respectful of their culture and intellect.
I highly recommend it to those fascinated by the history of southern africa.
