Beware the Serpent (#2)
|Author:||J. Alex Acker|
|Series:||Raven Delaire Curse Trilogy|
Dr. Savannah Jase is talented, powerful, and dangerous. Already a world-renowned cancer specialist, she has an insatiable appetite for beautiful women, an unquenchable thirst for power, and a penchant for unspeakable evil.
Sterling Navarre, Dr. Jase's partner, is dying of cancer…according to Dr. Jase at least. Sterling is convinced her condition is more sinister than cancer, and that Savannah is behind it.
In a quest to cure her illness, Sterling seeks to acquire the Serpentine Sapphire, a stone so powerful that its very existence has never been confirmed. Sterling consults noted gemologist Leah Constantine, who's skeptical that the stone even exists. Leah finds herself curiously drawn to the ailing woman, and quickly ensnared in situation well beyond her wildest imaginings.
Will Sterling find the stone in time, only to have it fall into Savannah's hands? Can Leah be convinced of the stone's existence and help Sterling? And will the mysterious Guardian make herself known in time to save them all?
