Reviews: Book Review: A CONSPIRACY OF RAVENS
In the Niger Delta creeks Southern Nigeria, nine expatriates are being held hostage by militants fighting for control over the resources from their land. At the same time, a series of seemingly unconnected events rock the country. Alex Randa, a celebrated agent of the Department of State Services, with a compelling record of successes is tasked by the president to secure the release of the hostages; and to also uncover the sponsors behind the militants. With nothing to go on but the phrase ‘Operation Raven’, her instincts, and three unlikely allies, Alex quickly learns nothing is what it seems. Together, they must race against time to save not just the hostages but a nation on the brink of a bloody Civil War.
“A great writer is a great reader. A great writer is too a keen listener. OTHUKE OMINIABOHS has observed the reality of war strikes and Nigeria is just a representation of a global scene. In A Conspiracy of Ravens the author managed to make the reader feel like they’re watching a movie because of his great sense of detail. You will get a picture of the conflicts in the Niger Delta and the tension between the government and the militants. It’s a spectacle of people fighting not just the physical war but a war of the mind, For a war is not created by the perception of a strong arm but that of a greedy mind and a weak soul. It’s an intact story that will leave the reader unable to avoid turning the next leaf.”
– Kamikazi Fiona Rutagengwa
“In his characteristic style, the author has produced again this beautiful and brave entry into the world of political thrillers. A fascinating and spell binding read that would definitely spark necessary discussions in various spheres of the Nigerian political scene.”
– Twitter Book Club
Othuke paints a very strong picture with his words; you can hear the voices ringing out from the pages and smell the scents as he tells a story that leaves you on the edge of your seat with your heart threatening to burst out of your chest.
– Port-Harcourt Book Club
“I have spent most of my reading life waiting for Robert Ludlum to write our story. He just did. With the pseudo name: Othuke Ominiabohs. Othuke is almost too temerarious and too audacious about his new found calling in this genre. I don’t wish him well; I wish us his readers well.”
– Ojay Aito
Othuke’s ability to transport the reader from Addis Ababa into present day Nigeria with such ease is what makes him a great writer. His words paint a clear picture which leaves you enthralled and begging for more. You find yourself sympathizing and empathizing with the characters, almost wishing you could jump into the book and save them. His ability to weave themes like love, desperation, greed and power are clearly displayed yet again.
