This book, second in the trilogy that begins with "She," takes place in central Asia (China, Tibet, or Russia -- Haggard never tells us where, exactly, but it's clearly someplace in that vicinity), rather than Africa, but loses nothing for its location. The book's full of adventure -- a great avalanche, a chase by the death hounds, Ayesha's reincarnation, and of course the ultimate battle with Kalloon . . . there's even Ayesha's meeting with her "servants" -- that is shadows and ghosts from beyond and the past. Not to be missed by Haggard fans.Haggard, H. Rider is the author of 'Ayesha ', published 2006 under ISBN 9781598186123 and ISBN 1598186124.
