André Ferero is a South African who has been living in France since July 2006. Even though his love for Africa hasn't diminished during that time he is not complaining about living in the kingdom (well, Republic) of food and wine.
His interests include photography, reading, (good) movies, hiking, wine tasting, traveling and trying to figure out this experience called life. Music is one of his biggest loves on earth and he listens to almost anything, from old to new.
He writes as often as possible. He describes his fiction as speculative with a focus on the characters in possible futures. He has also just finished a South African guidebook that is different from all other guidebooks on the topic and will be very helpful to travelers who want to plan their own trip to Southern Africa.

This is a fantastic novel! I decided to read this after reading The Magic Pen by Ferero and I am so glad that I did. Ferero does an incredible job with his descriptions, making you really see and feel what is going on in the story. His writing style is remarkable.
My favorite part of this novel is how Ferero created characters named Love, Hope, Peace, Hate, etc. The story revolves around the battle for Earth, where Hate has been trying to take over. Love goes to Earth to try and spread her message and beat Hate. Our hero, U-Man, and his partner Angra (a man with anger issues) head to Earth to rescue Love and help defeat Hate. Ferero does an incredible job of walking a thin line between the characters and the emotions they're named after. At times, when others are talking about Love or Hate, you have to remind yourself that they are both characters and emotions.
Ferero's message is incredible and he did a remarkable job of pulling off such a creative and original idea. It was exciting, entertaining, and full of surprises. I'd suggest this novel to anyone.

Ferrero has magically captured a truly believable fantasy world and story to match it.
A sci-fi tale, a love story, an action-adventure tale, with love, hate, courage, intrigue, humor, and more. With a wonderful mixture of characters who come alive, and whose journeys, thoughts and feelings you will feel intensely.
What a great satisfaction to enjoy an exceptional first work, by Ferrero
Read it, and enjoy the journey. The only downside for me was knowing that the experience had to end.
