Adventure stories with a dash of enigma, Roots follows a timeline of unique stand-alone stories—characters that share a link through time.

I’ve never read an collection of stories like this, where all the stories are quite different, with different authors, and yet all the stories are connected, some even overlapping. It made for an intriguing read and I enjoyed it very much! So clever!

Well done Leumas and co author’s I felt as though I was right there. Beautifully written, powerful expression and an impactful story. Can’t wait to see what you do next.

Great book, well written by all the authors, (at this point not quite finished yet) and without any spoilers five different authors one intertwined story.
