The Fethafoot Chronicles: To Save a King, Pemulwuy Weeatunga

My Clan’s name and its mysteries, have been kept out of public knowledge and history in my homeland of Australia. It’s the way The Clan work. To achieve their goals, secrecy is a prerequisite to safeguard the work and people. I, am what some in the Clan call the favoured, because I now have the power – via the written word, to ensure that our efforts are remembered: and not just by the Clan, or those few they have made themselves known to. For the first time in our extensive, oral history, we have a means to reveal the long and intriguing history of our covert Clan to other Australians; to the many new people’s who now call this majestic land home – and to the modern world at large. If you were born in Australia, you may have even heard such stories told around campfires and family meals: about the Australian Aboriginal magic man – or Kadaicha, as our Clan were named by our people many years ago. We call ourselves: The Fethafoot.

I am stunned, as I begin to write my review for The Fethafoot Chronicles: To Save a King I am still stunned and astounded by the magic nature of this book. Pemulway Weeatunga is a talented exceptional author because his wonderful book has managed to compel me from beginning to end and had me turning its pages like a man woman! This is always the sign of a talented wordsmith so already I would implore you lovely readers to read this phenomenal book!

To Save a King is book seven in The Fethafoot Chronicles but each book can be read as a stand alone so do not worry! I read this book as a stand-alone story and it was brilliant. To Save a King is a mysterious, dark book about a clan and its mysteries. Without spoiling the plot as this book is too incredible to do so, it tells the story of slaves in Louisiana centuries ago as they are visited by the Australian ‘magic man’… yes, its story is this incredible!

The story of To Save a King is a stunning book that compelled me from the first page. To Save a King may only be 64 pages long but its story is incredible and will excite as well as entertain you. The poignant nature of this book which focuses on the history of the slave trade makes To Save a King not only an entertaining novel that will have you reading for hours on end but also a poignant one. The exceptional author wonderfully brings the tragedies of history to light in a sensitive, meaningful way that challenges its readers to think about the past and how we can change.

The multiple themes used by Weeatunga is exceptional; I adore how he managed to effortlessly weave two very different topics which are magic and the slave trade. He perfectly weaves these two themes together to make an excellent story that should not be missed!

Pemulwuy Weetunga can only be described as a talented wordsmith, this is evident because of how many books he has written but also because his literature shines off the page and into the reader’s heart. As I read this story of his, I felt myself intrigued from the first page and this did not dissipate once. I adored every moment of this book and so I have no choice but to award the wonderful To Save a King a stellar Five Stars!

Hi & thanks so much for the insightful review, Aimee Ann of ‘RhBl’. Like most authors, I get nervous prior to any review, & with the additional regard of having a non-Australian & non-indigenous ‘read’ of the work, perhaps even more so. However, you gathered together the holistic concept with an open-minded flair and empathy that ‘saw’ my ‘work’ similarly to my own writing philosophy around this series. This book & the entire series of 10 books [FfC] are my humble attempt to give our contemporary world some genuine knowledge about my people: the Australian Aborigine, in loud living colour.… Read more »
