A POWERFUL COUNTER-EXTREMISM NOVEL: Lords of Misrule by Joel D. Hirst

The most recent review of my new novel “Lords of Misrule“:

“Lords of Misrule by Joel Hirst is the first literary novel I have read that reflects the motivations and consequences of Jihadist movements in the post-colonial Africa. Being a Muslim and living in the hotspot of the Boko Haram insurgency in north-eastern Nigeria, I find a lot of familiar events in the book.”
