The Blessed Princes: A Review
The Blessed Princes is a novella by Micheal Mc Portar Mupotaringa and Monalisa Chishato.
This easy read 37 pages long is an intriguing short story that’s next to impossible to give a summary or review of without giving away any spoilers. Blessed Princes explores the whirlwind dynamics of relationships, marriage and cheating.
The book opens with an unlikely chance encounter, a wife meets her husband’s mistress…..thats some real drama right there and of course you will want to know how the everything gets resolved especially if you throw in that both the the wife and mistress are pregnant and the mistress is engaged to be married to someone else. You can even tell that from the cover page art… What a tangled web they weave.
The book title is curiously interesting but you will have to read it to for yourself, a book gotta have its mystery…. and of course a cliff hanger at the end…..
Its way too short to totally do justice to the intricate dynamics of relationships, the lies, deception and the secrets entangled and woven into the fabric of our interactions. A few continuity errors which could have been easily fixed by fleshing out the plot also jar the reading experience of an otherwise interesting way to spend a few minutes of your life seeing what the plot unravels.

In an interesting aside, the co-authors begun working on this project just after they started dating bu the book got published a week after they broke up one would wonder if it were an intricate publicity stunt….They say it was not but of course thats what anyone behind a publicity would say
“No it’s not a publicity stunt but yes it’s an opportunity.”
I guess that means dont hold your breath waiting for a sequel to the cliffhanger ……
PS would you date your co-author?
