Loved hearing of all the technical side of the gems and settings, how things are created, the meaning of the processes.
Hot steamy sex scenes. Story follows Irene, her stepmother Sophia and her father and their other lifes....death, more mysteries arise and she tracks down the sources...
The eggs are most fascinating to learn about....so many upheavals
