Its the final battle between the Black Pearl Clan and the Jeweled Mirror, Water Crystal and Ivory Sword clans. Yet victory cannot be claimed until Juline and her friends, Bakuya, Seika and Kio, face their loved ones, who have become unwilling Guardians of Black Pearl Temple. For the honor of her clan -- and for her own life -- Juline is forced to fight her father to the death. And even if she survives, the greatest challenge lies ahead in the hands of the martial arts master herself, the Black Pearl.
The mystery and intrigue in this series was amazing. I've collectively read them all! They are GREAT!
