"The Good Dictator I: The Birth of an Empire (Volume 1): by Goncalo JN Dias is my first read from this author. The story will grab your attention and keep a hold of it. There is so much to this book. If you read the exert you'll get a general idea of the story. The real gem is actually digging into this story with its many twists and turns. I seriously didn't want to put this down because I wanted to know what was going to happen next.
