    I obtained this book from the author at a book signing because it sounded like an interesting read. I've always liked historical fiction novels placed at the turn of the twentieth century. It's just an exciting time in human history, and I love reading about cultural changes going on around the world during such periods in time.This book takes place in Kenya in 1909, and deals with a nomadic tribe known as the Samburu. A man- eating lion has been stalking the tribe and killing its members, and t [...]

    Let me start by saying that the more I delve into historical fiction, the more I love it. I've always been more of a fantasy buff, but titles like this one make me want to wade deeper into the waters of historical fiction.Rogue is the newest novel by H. Squires. It takes place in Kenya's Rift Valley in the early 1900s. The story is told both from a first person perspective of Dr. Elizabeth Stanson, and dominantly a third person perspective of the elusive Samburu tribe in the valley. A lion with [...]

    I received a free copy of this book through Giveaways (and boy, am I glad I did)!When I first started, I thought that this would be a dull, simple retelling about a unimportant, undistiguishable African tribe.

Sometimes I could even see the lion, the women making clay beads, the sandy gorge [...]

    I won a copy of this book in a giveaway.Interesting story, but more of a short story or YA, than an actual novel. Read it all in one sitting and a couple of hours. More of a snack than an actual meal. It was a bit like reading a personal journal, if you like that style of writing, it is worth checking out.

    When I first started reading this book, I was skeptical on: if I'd enjoy it. First of all, I am not one to read historical fiction, especially one in Africa. But, it didn't take long before I was amazed by the depth of the story. Essentially, ROGUE is a book within a book. It starts off being told from the doctor's perspective (Dr. Elizabeth Stanton), and then switches to the African's (Samburu) account. I know, it sounds weird, but the transition blends very well. There are a lot of characters, [...]
