Throwback Thursday #32 - Gene of Isis

This is a great feature that Melissa at My World...in words and pictures has been doing for a while and I wanted to jump on board! There are plenty of books out there I desperately want...

But what about all those wonderful books that are ALREADY on my shelves?

Gene of Isis - Traci Harding
 
 Mia Montrose is a 21st-century Australian woman with a Doctorate in Ancient Languages who has just scored the most promising job of her career. When Mia experiences mysterious happenings and forces beyond her control, she begins to understand that history does not always stay in the past. Ashlee Granville is a 19th-century clairvoyant, forced to suppress her talents as she enters the marriage market of English upper-class society. But Ashlee is not a girl who likes to bow to the inevitable - she has plans of her own. Lillet du Lac is a 13th-century woman, priestess of an ancient order now protected by the Cathar faith, who are making their last stand against the Roman Catholic Franks at the giant hill fort of Monts├ęgur. As the castle falls, Lillet escapes with something more valuable than any of their lives … Despite the time, distance and cultures that separate them, these women have several things in common. They belong to an ancient bloodline of Grail kings, protected by a Sion knight named Albray, and they are each compelled to visit an ancient mountain in the Sinai. This mountain contains the keys which may unlock a gateway to a dimension of light and the Gene of Isis.
 
When I spent a few months travelling in Australia a few years ago I fell in love with an author called Traci Harding and her Ancient Future trilogy. So when I got home I picked up as many of her books as I could find including this one Gene of Isis. Only trouble is that I can't seem to find Dragon Queens the second book of this trilogy anywhere (or at least not for a reasonable price!). I know when I start to read this book I will want the second and third books ready to start as soon as possible when I finish Gene...so I'm stuck looking wistfully at this book for the time being...any ideas? :)

  2. How come you didn't take me? *sad face*

    You could try Big Fish Pond or something like that, but I don't know if I could call it reasonable prices b/c of shipping. :P
