About the Book


What do you do when your true existence is cloaked in darkness? In this intricate world of politics, spies, and assassinations, nothing is as it appears. The First Lady resides in a realm of duality, fueled by a clandestine operation orchestrated by her dictator husband and the powerful foreign forces that sustain tyranny. Balancing a facade of humanitarianism with internal turmoil, she keeps her identity concealed, haunted by the heinous acts she once played a part in during her country's harrowing genocide. The weight of her secrets has placed her life, as well as the lives of her people, in constant jeopardy.

Then, by a twist of fate, she crosses paths with a man on the very quest she spent a lifetime summoning the courage to undertake: the protection of children. In that moment, she plummets headlong into an overwhelming infatuation. With him, she can finally shed the layers of pretense and confront the consequences of her past actions—the damage she inflicted upon the world as a child soldier and the devastation she furthered by marrying the man responsible for spearheading the ethnic cleansing campaign that shattered her life. He is the same man who ruthlessly slaughtered her family, transforming her once-thriving village into a grisly crime scene before claiming her as his bride.

Before she can embrace her own rendition of a blissful ending, she knows she must confront her past and seek redemption. As love beckons to her soul, there exists an even more tantalizing allure—revenge. She must reconcile her past misdeeds, charting a course that paves the way for her ultimate happily ever after.


My Review


The Root of All Evil Offers a Fast Paced, Thought Provoking Thriller to Readers. The plot is fast-paced and suspenseful, with plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader guessing. The author does a great job balancing the action with the character development. The novel is thought-provoking, exploring themes of power, corruption, revenge, loyalty, trust and the darker side of human nature. It is a powerful and timely story that will stay with you long after you finish reading it.  

Readers will Find Characters to Root For–But Few to Trust. Zayani is a complex and well-developed character. She is strong and resourceful, but her past also haunts her. The author does a great job of exploring Zayani's inner turmoil and her journey to find redemption. As Zayani’s story unfolds, her relationships bring many well-drawn and believable characters. The seemingly good are less than good–and even the evil have some gnawing positive qualities that readers can hope lead to redemption. It is impossible not to want a positive outcome for Zayani–even when some of her actions make even this heroine challenging to trust and love. 


Would I Recommend Root of All Evil by Ayura Ayira? Initially, I was worried that this book was focused on an instant romance that would dilute Zayani’s strength as a character and a leader. Readers can set that worry aside immediately! If you are looking for a political thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat, then Root of All Evil is the perfect book for you. It is a powerful and thought-provoking story that leaves readers wanting to stay with Zayani and follow her toward her goals. With vivid, descriptive details and moral, ethical, and emotional dilemmas from start to finish–this book offers something for all readers and fans of many genres.
