Book Tour Review: The Emperor’s Seal by Amanda Roberts

The Emperor’s Seal
Touching Time Book 1
by Amanda Roberts
Genre: Paranormal Fantasy Mystery
Peking, 1902
The Emperor’s Seal – the divine symbol of the Emperor on earth –
is missing. The Empress will do whatever it takes to get it back.
Jiayi has a gift – she can travel through time just by touching
historical artifacts. More than anything, she wants to escape the
clutches of the Empress and run away to a foreign land. Finding the
Emperor’s Seal could be her only chance at freedom, but is she
willing to risk the wrath of the Empress?
Historian and wannabe archaeologist Zhihao has no love for the Empress or
the Qing Dynasty, but when the Empress orders him to find the Emperor’s
Seal in exchange for funding China’s first history museum, he
cannot refuse. It is only after he accepts the assignment that he
realizes the key to finding the seal lies in the hands of a palace slave.
Civil unrest and encroaching foreign powers threaten Jiayi and Zhihao’s
mission and lives as they hunt for The Emperor’s Seal.
**Only .99 cents!**
Non-stop action filled this paranormal, fantasy and mystery read! Turn of the century Peking, China in 1902 finds the Empress, a Manchu, hiding the fact that the Emperor has been missing for years. The book has an honest feel, especially from the history standpoint and civil unrest, even if not historical fiction.
We follow the adventure-filled trek of the seer, Jaiya, her Eunuch, Lo, and the Empress’s archaeologist, Zhihao as the go in search of the Emperor’s Seal which had been missing for 70 years. Using her gifts, Jaiyi is able to inhabit the body of a woman who touched the artifact in the past, but only for as long as she can hold her breath. Her power for this is very unpredictable, as it is not able to focus on time or the person herself.
The twists, turns, and plot absorbed me into the story-line from beginning to end. Truly mesmerized by Amanda Roberts’ book, The Emperor’s Seal, that I received as part of this book tour. Looking forward to more from her!
