H. Rider Haggard was an English novelist and Victorian writer of African frontier adventure novels. He initiated many of the now common themes of the lost civilisation and lost continent, including the ancient magic and curses, secret chambers and mysticism. Together with Arthur Conan Doyle, Haggard is considered as one of the founder of Lost World literary genre.
'Finished' is a historical novel by Haggard first published in 1917 and it is the last book in the trilogy about Zulu Kingdom, the sequel to 'Marie' and 'Child Of Storm'. As in the previous books of the trilogy the main character is Allan Quatermain. The book traces back the events of the Anglo-Zulu war of 1879. The book is considered to depict those historical events rather truthfully, although with some additions that help it to appear in the form of a novel. Read this brilliant novel and soak up the atmosphere of Zulu Kingdom!
