The Emerald Scepter is one of those rip-roaring adventures that I didn’t see coming. It was a book that I found intriguing after reading its description online. But it turned out to be one of those books that will never have a description that can do it justice. We’re talking a 500 page novel that is cover to cover action and suspense. The characters and interesting and engaging while the plot leaves the reader with a constantly evolving understanding of the protagonist’s past and present.
All of this is an exceptional treat for fans of the thriller genre as many will recognized Paul Kemprecos’s name from his collaborative work with Clive Cussler on The Numa Files (the Kurt Austin series). And while it comes as no surprise that Paul is a gifted story-teller, The Emerald Scepter proves that he has saved his best work for his solo career.
