- Full Description
Deep in the heart of Africa, history is doomed to repeat itself as two women find themselves entangled in a powerful legend that could be key to one of the most coveted treasures on earth. With Jade having successfully stolen the lost treasure of the last Sultan, she, Lord and Lady Nelson continue their passionate affair on a journey into Africa. But when a group of tribesmen savagely attacks them on their boat along the way, the complexities of this powerful yet cryptic culture begin to reveal themselves.
Perhaps there is more behind the brutal attack than random savagery, perhaps there is a connection to the black pearl earring Jade now wears, which perfectly matches that of the tribe’s goddess.
Jade’s granddaughter Kim Nelson embarks on a treacherous journey to reclaim the sought-after earring, the key to the treasure her grandmother stole decades ago. Diving into the mysteries of a secluded African culture, Kim must prove her worth through rituals of fire and flesh, much like her ancestor did, as she grows closer to discovering the coveted gem. But Kim isn’t the only one looking for this precious earring, and now the race is on to uncover the truth before it’s gone forever.
This is a good read, and it's moving off in new directions that are imaginative and unexpected. The art is amazingly alluring, the title character (and her ancestor, as they juxtapose through the story) is a gorgeous, powerful, thoughtful woman who isn't afraid of nudity or sex, or the dangers of alien lands and other people's beliefs. I'm eager to read this new book in the series and see how our heroine will fare this time. The artwork is amazing.
