Lady Zia Karawa, the shining light of Susa’s merchant families, has been promised in marriage.  To her annoyance, her Egyptian suitor, Yafeu Babafemi, is making his way from Alexandria to claim her as his wife.  A dowry of unimaginable wealth awaits him.

  1. Interesting site, James, and it seems you have a following. Your fantasy novel hints strongly of an Arabic historical novel.

    A beautiful chieftain’s daughter, pirates of the desert: exciting stuff!

    I love what you’ve done with wordpress, good luck with your novels.

    I looked over your reading list and was thrilled to see some of my favourite SF, and Fantasy fiction authors there.

    Visti me at my site for a chat.

    1. Hi Alex. Thank you very much for your kind words.

      Yes, it is an Arabic focus, expanded slightly to include Egypt and Persia. I have developed a great interest in Middle East and Central Asia, mainly due to the amazing history of the areas. It is an amazing wealth of knowledge and inspiration.

      I look forward to wandering through your website, and sharing knowledge and experience with you =)

      Regards,

      D. James
