The Ghost Kings

by H. Rider Haggard

Once more we have the presentation of a girl of wonderful charm, who through no desire of her own is endowed with mystical properties by the superstitious natives. Mr. Rider Haggard doubtless knows more of the Zulus than any other writer of our day, and he introduces here a picture of that nation under Dingaan which is both vivid and convincing. Their dealings with the heroine, her love, and the renegade European who lives with them, form some of the chief incidents of the book, but it is the love story of the mysterious maiden, of her wanderings in the land of the Ghost Kings--surely one of the weirdest regions Mr. Haggard has ever imagined--of the search of her lover for her, and of their reunion after many strange adventures, which make up a romance of exciting and fascinating interest.
