A thrilling and gruesome tale from the author of Dracula— just in time for Halloween
CONTROVERSIAL DURING ITS TIME, The Jewel of Seven Stars is a spine-chilling novel from the master of the macabre. When a mysterious attack on Margaret Trelawney's father brings young lawyer Malcolm Ross into the Egyptologist's bizarre home, the couple soon find themselves battling the ancient Egyptian queen Tera, who is on a mission to take what she believes is hers— whatever the cost. Written at a time when a fascination with the East pervaded Victorian England, The Jewel of Seven Stars reflects the perceived contrast between the Orient's savagery and moral degradation and its exotic beauty and opulence.
