It is the Mountain of Light--the legendary 186-carat Kohinoor diamond and its facets--that reflects a sweeping story of love, adventure, conquest and betrayal. Its origins are the stuff of myth, but for centuries this spectacular gem changes hands from one ruler to another in India, Persia, and Afghanistan. In 1850, the ancient stone is sent halfway around the world where it will play a pivotal role in the intertwined destinies of a boy-king of India and a young queen of England a queen who claims the Mountain of Light and India itself for her own burgeoning empire, the most brilliant jewels in her imperial crown.

Fascinating and interesting as ever! I love these novels for their historical accuracy, wonderful characters and plot-line and amazing descriptions. I was fascinated by the story of the Kohinoor's journey to the queen's crown, and I loved the way the story was told.
