Inca Moon Chronicle II is a fast-paced historical adventure set in the South American Andes during the Inca Empire. Events unfold in what is today Ecuador and Peru. With her brother’s life in the balance, the Inca heroine Lady Qori Qoyllur is forced to serve and protect her archenemy on a perilous quest for a legendary emerald. Through broiling deserts, storm-tossed seas, frigid mountains, and steaming jungles, Qori searches for the secret temple where the great emerald is guarded by the dreaded condor priests—masters of combat, poison, and stealth.
With Qori, we experience the pomp and rituals of a vanished world, from the splendors of the Inca royal court, through the imperial heartland with its governors and subject peoples, to the domains of ‘uncivilized savages’ beyond the empire’s boundaries. On this journey, we meet royalty and warlords, heroes and scoundrels, assassins, sorcerers, and thieves. While this is a tale of sweeping landscapes and high adventure, it is Qori’s inner quest that drives the story to a satisfying conclusion.
