Publisher's Summary

Number one Essence best-selling author K'Wan returns with The Diamond Empire, the explosive, hard-hitting follow-up audiobook to the street love story Diamonds and Pearl.

It's about to be an all-out war. While an ambitious rival has taken over Diamonds' crew, Diamonds lies in wait in exile, carefully planning his next move to come back and reclaim his position as king of the streets of New York for good. But when an unexpected enemy from the past one-ups Diamonds and beats him at his own game, Diamonds needs to dig deep into his bag of tricks - and make an unlikely alliance - in order to climb back to the top.

After opening her heart to Diamonds and then having him disappear, Pearl lives her days in a very dark place. But when her father's empire is toppled and a gaping power vacuum needs to be filled, Pearl is drawn into the very life her father so desperately wanted to shield her from. Pearl needs to fight tooth and nail to become queen of her father's kingdom as Diamonds claws his way back to Pearl.

Not what I expected.

I love the characters in this story however, this book seems a bit rushed. The story went in too many directions without wrapping any of it up. I'm all for suspense but this seemed like several sequel ideas crammed into one book. No love loss but keep the focus.

That Cannot Be It!?!?

I’m so confused by this! It just seems like an incomplete book. I liked the book, but it left you with too many unanswered questions. Then I was really confused because maybe I read something out of order, but in Love and Gun Play which was written way before this.... Brother Minister was Diamonds bodyguard/security. Maybe this is a flashback. I’m not sure. A book is missing or needs to fill in the blanks. From part 1 to this book, I was expecting it to be about some love story between Pearl and Diamonds. However, it turned out to be anything but that. I do wanna see where this goes. But you can’t just leave the reader scratching their head. I felt the same about Hoodlum 2.
