Forbes’ life in the Congo with the Bangala Elongó has been anything but dull. Rebels, thieves, Mai Mai, rampaging soldiers, gangs, M23, Lord’s Resistance Army have all been a threat at one time or another, but when a young Kinshasa joins the village, her presence sets off a chain of events that overturns his family’s purpose for being there and forces his otherworldly niece, Sonnet, to venture north into war-torn areas where the Bangala Elongó kill and eat their enemies.  


Only her success and safe return will restore the alien his family serves.
