In the mood for intrigue? Complex stories? Getting to know an unusual piece of history from faraway lands? Then I have something for you! Today I will be featuring Author Heather Moore and her novel Slave Queen.
Special Agent Omar Zagouri’s latest case is his most dangerous—and his most personal yet. The discovery of secret sixteenth-century letters unveils a plot between the sultan Suleyman and his chief wife, Roxelane, to change the course of the Ottoman Empire. A descendent of Roxelane, Zagouri learns he has an enemy whose revenge has been centuries in the making.
Targeted by an antiquities collector who’s also descended from a chief rival for the ancient throne, Zagouri soon uncovers a modern-day conspiracy that threatens the lives of his family and the security of a nation.
To expose the plot, Zagouri must team up with Naim, the son of his nemesis, who heads an international black-market operation that may have ties to the killings. From ancient Constantinople to the present-day Middle East, Zagouri is on a collision course with history. Time is running out to solve a royal mystery and stop a ruthless killer—one who has Zagouri’s name on his hit list.
What I like: Two stories centuries apart, two vastly different scenarios and players, and a great story that slowly and inexorably joins them. What I love the most about stories that tell you both past and present is that no matter if you think you know how the past story ends, in the right hands, you'll always be surprised.

It all started with a statue of a merman, and became really interesting when the characters came to life.
