Overview

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.

Terrible copy quality on every page

This work was written 20 years after SHE and interestingly enough the story starts the same 20 years later. However, the opening is slow and until Holly and his adopted son Leo Vincey reach the lamasery in the Tibetan Mountains the story is slow.Once this point is reached the reader will become involved in a literal war for Leo's love between Ayesha and the wife of the local Khan. Also H.Rider Haggard presumes you have read SHE and does not recap for those unfamiliar with Ayesha and Leo's back story. Like his original novel 20 years before the reader will enjoy high adventure. One point of interest to the film buff is that the setting of this novel and some scenes were incorporated into the 1935 film version of SHE by Merian C. Cooper who brought the classic 1933 film KING KONG to the screen.
