5 Stars *****
The Lion (The Black Land Series Book 1) did not disappoint. For anybody who was skeptical about this book after the tremendous debut of the Black Diamond Series, there should be no doubt. D Camille knows what she is doing! The characters are fierce, handsome, and beautiful! The storyline captivates and pulls the reader in with drama, suspense, intrigue and love! The characters, Orion, Tauri, Brandon, Khalil, Corvus, Lance, the parents and grandparents are dynamic and unforgettable. As an added bonus, we are introduced to more of the Khemetic culture. How about that Negus! I loved the way some of the Black Diamonds had cameos in the story. This book is a 5 Star winner all the way! It gives the reader a whole new look at the D (Detroit)! I can't wait for the next book. If you are not a follower of this author, get on it!
