REVIEW: Meet Princess Skye Parker. She is the reigning Princess of an African village, an entrepreneur who has her own clothing line, a student of the human anatomy, and a lethal warrior who handles business. She is quite a unique young woman who is in love with her King, Kyros Lewis, Urban warrior from the ‘D’ and United States Ambassador to Senegal and the surrounding area that includes Skye’s village. Talk about a power couple!
This story begins after the Heirs, the offsprings of the Black Diamonds, have completed a successful mission to bring a halt to sex trafficking; only to discover that there is a connection to illegal arms that are being supplied by the U.S. to instigate and support a war close to Emure, Skye’s village. That’s the simple version. If you know anything about D Camille’s stories, you know that things are not always as they appear. Skye and Kyros, along with the heirs, find themselves involved in a complex CIA gun running enterprise that will only bring destruction, disfunction, and detriment to the African governments that become ensnared. SKYE features the first steps taken by the Heirs to eliminate the threat to their African village by the underhanded deeds of those in powerful positions in the United States. That’s only the tip of the proverbial iceberg. The Black Flag and the Antelope (You’ll get that when you read the book.) must vigilantly watch their own backs and handle those who dare to threaten their lives.
There are several memorable scenes in this book that stand out. First, I loved the ‘Melody meets Skye’ scene in Detroit at the Pride Center. The outcome of that meeting is epic! Second, Joanna, the wedding crasher, makes an ill- timed entrance at Diamond and Xavier’s wedding. Third, is the ritual carried out by the Heirs against Zain and Zaire. They had to do it for the culture. Finally, as a follower and fan of writer D Camille, I have to admit, having the Black Diamonds, the Uncut Diamonds, the Heirs, the Negus and Nigists appear in the same book is priceless. If you don’t get that, then you are missing out on some great reads that spotlight these characters.
Admittedly, SKYE has some loose ends at the end of the book that still have to be handled, but that’s okay. This is just the third book of this series, and we can rest easy knowing that there is more to come. Plus, the HEA for the Princess and the King is off to an impassioned start, and that gives the readers something to look forward to next spring when the Heirs Series return, and they continue to “do it for the culture”. Stay tuned.
