They were fierce -- but they were loyal, and feared neither wounds nor doom. They listened to the dark murmuring of the witch-doctor; and chanting their terrible "Ingoma," at the King's bidding they went forth to slay fearlessly!
Two rushed at Quatermain with eyes bulging out of their sockets, shouting as they came, "Kill Umbelazi's white man! Kill! Kill!"
This gripping tale of Zikali, the "Thing-that-should-never-have-been-born," and the fall of the House of Senzangakona, falls in the tradition of King Solomon's Mines -- and features the greatest fictional hero created by H. Rider Haggard (1856-1925), Allan Quatermain.
