Development Pitch

The book is an excellent stand alone tale, with other books in the series ready to supply sequels with familiar main characters and continuing story lines. As an examination of a foreign culture the story is told in a way to be familiar to the viewer even though the caste system and customs may be different. The commonalties found in love, jealousy, revenge and greed are all easily understood and engaging.
