Soloman's Curse(Part five of the five part miniseries)

Do you want to be loved and worshipped like a queen, only to have the object of your desires ripped from your fingertips; leaving you hollow and empty forever longing to get back to that warm paradise, where love was the only currency. The only fortune for which you would gamble your soul, to get more of it?”
