Description

#1 Essence bestselling author K'Wan returns with The Diamond Empire, the explosive, hard-hitting follow-up novel to the street love story Diamonds and Pearl.

It's about to be an all-out war. While an ambitious rival has taken over Diamonds's crew, Diamonds lies in wait in exile, carefully planning his next move to comeback and reclaim his position as king of the streets of New York for good. But when an unexpected enemy from the past one-ups Diamonds and beats him at his own game, Diamonds needs to dig deep into his bag of tricks—and make an unlikely alliance—in order to climb back to the top.

After opening her heart to Diamonds and then having him disappear, Pearl lives her days in a very dark place. But when her father's empire is toppled and a gaping power vacuum needs to be filled, Pearl is drawn into the very life her father so desperately wanted to shield her from. Pearl needs to fight tooth and nail to become queen of her father's kingdom, as Diamonds claws his way back to Pearl.

        October 1, 2017
        In the follow-up to K'Wan's urban thriller, Diamonds and Pearl (2016), Diamond is captured and tortured by several people. Pearl misses him but assumes he blew her off and focuses her energy on her eighteenth-birthday party instead. Her father, Big Stone, plans a big meeting during the party with the leaders of nearby criminal operations, since he is worried about who is targeting all the crime lords. Knowledge, his number two, is keeping an eye on a new gang from New Orleans that includes a woman trumpet player, Vita, who also misses Diamond and thinks the new leader, Buda, is involved. There are a lot of players in this violent tale, and few are left standing after the party. K'Wan manages to give characters depth and feelings, especially Vita, Knowledge, and Pearl. Readers will need to read the first novel to enjoy this book fully, and they will be watching to see what happens in the next one, as new leaders are poised to take over New York's crime world. Fans of Mob fiction and street-lit enthusiasts may enjoy this.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2017, American Library Association.)
