Join us Friday when Sijuan King talks about her new suspense thriller, Millennium Slave, Part I.
Although this is her first novel, it is the latest in the long list of Si's accomplishments. As niece of boxing promoter Don King, she learned at a very early age that anything is possible. "Only in America," her Uncle Don always said, and Si followed his example. She has worn many hats in her life: entrepreneur, poet, activist--now novelist--and she has excelled at it all.
The idea for Millennium Slave came to Si, fully formed, in a dream. It is the story of handsome and brilliant Charles Allen Hart, a New York City executive with the world at his fingertips. While still in his early thirties, he is appointed CFO of global giant C.E.E.L. Industries. When he is invited aboard the company yacht for a cruise to the Caribbean, he considers it just one more milestone in his meteoric rise to the top. He asks his girlfriend Trudy to go along, planning to propose marriage as they sail into the sunset.
What they are sailing into, however, is an unimaginable nightmare; for their destination is not an island paradise, but a secret island where human bondage is still the law of the land.
Millennium Slave is impossible to put down and ends with a cliffhanger that is...well, downright cruel. Luckily, readers won't have to wait that long to find out what happens to Charles, because Si is planning to release Millennium Slave, Part II in 2012.
