So, what is all the fuss about?
You asked, and here is my answer:
The Nasrid Charm is active once more, having been dormant for centuries.
The new ring bearer is Suzy Kendall, who stumbles upon its hidden identity as she sets out to create her family tree. Her research leads her to Spain, and she discovers that the heirloom now in her possession is stolen property, taken from the vaults of the Alhambra Palace following the Spanish Civil War. Her grandfather, disowned by his family many years prior, still stands accused with its theft. As she seeks to clear his name, a string of coincidences force her to investigate the ring more closely.
With solutions to her questions not forthcoming, Suzy takes an unorthodox approach to finding out the truth and opts for a Life within Lives regression. Whereupon she encounters her Circle of Elders who teach her the origins and powers of the gemstone she wears on a chain around her neck. She is transported to fifteenth century Spain, led by her ancestor Soraya, the last true owner of the ring, and whose own story helps to unravel the mysteries of the strange circumstances that have befallen Suzy since she started her investigations.
She learns that the ring is enchanted and enables the bearer to perform acts of vengeance without detection, assuming that they are carried out for the greater good of many. Soraya, herself, admits to using the powers to murder an evil husband, responsible for many atrocities against the citizens of Granada.
Meanwhile, at home, her own life takes a very murky path as she discovers her business investment has been a huge scam. The Circle of Elders encourages Suzy to take revenge upon the fraudsters with the help of the Nasrid Charm.
Is it really an alternative to justice?
Can she succeed where the legal system seems bound to fail?
