Set in today’s celebrity vacation islands of the Maldives, this is a story few visitors know: how a young Maldivian became a favourite of the Portuguese conqueror of the northern atolls and then led a seaborne guerrilla campaign to oust the tyrannical colonizers from the islands.

Based on tales passed down by word of mouth for over 400 years and blending fact with legend, Royston Ellis has created an exciting story of historical fiction that captures the spirit of a brave young man touched by destiny, Mohamed Thakurufaan, the Maldives Avenger.

This swashbuckling yarn is written with the same passion, verve and insight that characterises the contemporary adult novels of Kicks Kindles master storyteller, Royston Ellis
