The other is her legendary ancestor, Jade, a djinn of the utmost expertise in the art of love, who, through the power of her body, holds the whole world in the palm of her hand. Her quest? To make her mark on the memory of the world through passing into legend. But both women must withstand many trials, and many rights of passage, in order to attain their goals. This is a series constantly in movement, migrating from Turkey and the harems of the Ottoman Empire, to Africa and the magic of ritual, to India and the glittering Pavilion of Pleasures. A captivating tribute to the power of desire, sensuality and the instinct to love."
