The stories are based on varied themes, both current and old, written in an interesting style that encompasses current circumstances. Some newer themes include those based on drugs, social networks, religion, etc., the older themes include witchcraft (ubuthakathi) and using umuthi for power (ukuthwala), as well as the ever popular themes of love, secrets and betrayal. The twenty stories in this book were further evaluated in order to select the top three, who are going to win prizes at the launch of the book on the 8th of November 2016.The book is suitable for schools and general readers because of the thematic strands that it covers.
