THE KINGDOM OF TA-SET THE CITY OF QU-STUL 5682 BC THE PALACE OF AHMOSE NIGHT HOUR All was asleep, but one. That one skulked in the darkness of the columned passages, a torch held before him as he made his way to the bedchamber of Ahmose.

Pausing at the door of the bedchamber, he looked once to the left and then to be right to ascertain that he was indeed alone in his quest. As he entered into the chamber, he could not help but marvel at how easy his incursion into the palace had been.
I like the way Ayim used amnesia to discuss relationships and the way we interact with each other.

A novel with a highly-relevant psychological
outlook, Twilight at Terracotta Indigo invites the reader to join the female protagonist Marlene in regaining memory through an encounter with art.
