Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The Blue Amulet is Mj Roë's sequel to her award-winning work, The Seven Turns of the Snail's Shell. In this exciting follow-up, estranged lovers Anna and Charles-Christian are drawn into the violence of an ancient Corsican vendetta. 

Anna, widowed by the 9/11 terrorist attack on New York City, returns to France and the home of her paternal grandfather Diamanté where she discovers her long-lost love Charles-Christian living under an assumed name on the island of Corsica.

Unbeknownst to him, when Anna left France she was heartbroken and pregnant. During their charged reunion, Charles-Christian meets the toddler, his son Luc, for the first time.

One day, The Blue Amulet, a luxury yacht owned by Greek playboy Nicolos "Nicko" Manos, sails into the port of Bastia. For years, Nicko's family has carried on a violent vendetta against Diamanté's family, resulting in the slaying of Diamanté's father and Nicko's grandfather. In retaliation, Nicko kidnaps Diamanté, but the wily senior escapes and blows up The Blue Amulet. Nicko, in turn, catches up with Diamanté, shoots him, stabs Anna, and absconds with young Luc. If Charles-Christian is to save his son he will have to risk his own life and his concealed identity.

Intense, piercing, and vivid, The Blue Amulet is a story of love and deception that packs enough cinematic action to intrigue readers of thrillers while following a couple's repressed ardor for one another across a scintillating Mediterranean landscape.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Worthy SEQUEL!!! September 21, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The Blue Amulet is a wonderful sequel novel to The Seven Turns of a Snails Shell. This book has all the elements I look for when reading a book...intrigue, action, good dialogue, well-developed characters, explosions, and on and on and on. A well written piece that moved along nicely.

4.0 out of 5 stars A nice love story June 8, 2014

A nice story that was fun to word. The love story aspect has a bit too many twists and turns, but it kept me reading so I guess that's the important part. I recommend it as a good escape.

I rarely read romance novels. They are too predictable. Not so in "The Blue Amulte". The star crossed lovers, CiCi and Anna, take the reader on the adventure of ones life time. I was breathless just reading it. It is not your average novel. I highly recommend it. I never skipped a word.
