The King's Jewel
by Dennis M Lane
Shara’s a normal 2050s schoolgirl, able to escape the English monsoon and visit her grandparents in South Africa, but just a normal 12 year old. Or so she thought. First were Granddad's stories of ancestors who were kings - gods even! Then a stalker with a strange tale to tell. Next thing she knows, Shara is waking up in a palace, on a mission to retrieve alien technology from Alfred the Great!
