Son of Venice continues the story begun in Daughter of Xanadu, set in thirteenth century China. In that book, Emmajin, a fictional granddaughter of Khubilai Khan and the first woman soldier in the Mongol army, met Marco Polo, who fascinated her with tales of romantic love and caused her to question her ambition.
Son of Venice picks up the story as Emmajin begins her journey to the West, assigned by Khubilai Khan to carry a letter to establish peace between her homeland and Marco Polo’s. Marco is to travel in the same caravan. But a shaman’s warning of traitors and danger casts a shadow over their journey.
Told in alternating points of view, this book follows the adventures of Emmajin and Marco Polo as they face battles, intrigue, sinister plots, and unexpected challenges to their unconventional love. Can Marco’s famed eloquence and cleverness help when Emmajin faces perils beyond any she imagined?
