"Elesin Oba, the King's Horseman, has a single destiny. When the King dies, he must commit ritual suicide and lead his King's favourite horse and dog through the passage to the world of the acestors. A British Colonial Officer, Pilkings, intervenes."
I'm glad that I kept on reading after the first pages, since the story got really interesting and I enjoyed the read.
Hope I will be able once to see it in play.
