The Gem of the Red Spirit
Her wild heart has lost the Gem of the Red Spirit.
Now a curse may fall on those she loves unless she can find the pirate who has stolen it and her heart.
It is 1693 on the isle of Jamaica, and twenty-one-year-old, Arose Du Mouchelle, is the mixed-race heir to a sprawling sugar plantation. From an old gypsy, she receives a matriarchal heirloom: the Gem of the Red Spirit. She spends years in exile, learning the secrets of the Astral Plane. She discovers she must act as the sentry between this dimension and her world.
Morel, the priestess witch, covets the Gem. She holds Arose’s family and the port town hostage, attempting to force Arose to give up the powerful amulet.
While evading Morel’s henchmen Arose collides with a notorious pirate, whom she has already met in a vision. Leary of him, he gains her trust after he aids in her escape. But she is duped when he disappears with the Gem. However, even if she recovers it, she’ll have a bigger decision to make—keep the Gem of the Red Spirit and doom her family or give it to Morel and let the world fall into a demonic wasteland.
A simple tale of good verses evil.
The race is on to protect the Gem of the Red Spirit.
