    Ooh – Afropean – I loved that book. Loved it. I am also interested in hearing what the night walking one is like. Have fun with these!

      I have been meaning to read Afropean for ages. Nightwalking was really good, but it is really really short at only 104 pages. Not sure If I am going to review that or not, but I would recommend giving it a go
