SUMMARY: As the desert war escalates to the west of Cairo, the MI6 team confuses the enemy with misleading radio messages using German codes and using local entertainers as undercover agents. On one of his day leaves, Jacko meets a beautiful young Syrian-French girl and a strong romantic bond forms between the two during his time in Cairo.

The BookViral Review: A taut, exciting read that throws surprises at the reader on a regular basis The Warramunga’s War proves a strong start to Kater’s Warramunga Series and a must-read for fans of War and Historical Fiction. Succeeding on almost all fronts Kater delivers high octane adventure that takes us from Egypt to Australia with a raft of arresting empathic characters, engaging action sequences and plenty of twists along the way. But what makes Kater’s novel such an affecting read is its warm presentation of the friendship between Jamie and Jacko.

It’s clear from the start that Kater is reaching for an epic sweep with his series and another author might have become bogged down in cliched drama and two-dimensional characters but Kater’s attention to detail makes his narrative authentically gripping. Avoiding the traps of dull, dutiful heritage fiction he brings fresh emotional weight to the genre whilst a keen ear for dialect and dialogue bring a level of warmth and immediacy which is sadly often lacking in the genre.

Some books become classics simply because they’re from a bygone era, others deserve to be called classics because, in addition to being of literary merit, they tell us something about a bygone era. Kater’s first book in his Warramunga Series is certainly one of the latter.

Thoroughly enjoyable with the promise of more good reads to come, it is unreservedly recommended.

Fiction and mortality – living forever.

We are constantly and enduringly fascinated with fictional accounts of parallel existence, alternative realities and genetic engineering. Films such as ‘The Fountain’ present immortality as attainable, whilst books such as ‘The Book Thief’ (Markus Zusak) explore the nature of death, in this case by death himself acting as narrator.
