A LEGEND IS BORN
Years before his Atlantis quest, 17-year-old Conrad Yeats disobeys his father by crossing war-torn Africa in search of the lost "Virgin City" and final resting place of the Queen of Sheba. The legendary queen is said to hide the secret of the ages -- and with it the curse that doomed her and all who dare to follow. Compounding the mystery is Conrad's first sight of the young Serena Serghetti, who has secrets of her own. If he survives this perilous adventure, it could be the making of him -- and a whole new legend.
