Now I'm reading the book "Blood Maidens" by Barbara Hambly and at the very first page I found a word the meaning of which I can not understand. The sentence is Close to the slums where the families of the Boralong workers lived, he could hear them screaming: children and women terrified by the rain of death from the night sky.
What does the word Boralong mean? Is it a tribe, a company, a place, a surname, anything else?
Thank you very much for your help.
