I finished reading this book and I felt like I came back from another world.
Many people will have a hard sje fitting their mind into that box. I read the Dutch translation of the book. In this book Ayesha slaughters thousands, and Leo is not too upset with that hagagrd to keep loving her. This is the second novel of four in Haggard’s Ayesha Series, the others being: The continuing adventures of Holly and Leo.
