The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Nemo: River of Ghosts

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen  Nemo: River of Ghosts  The Nemo trilogy is a 216-page story arc spanning fifty years, divided into three 72-page chapters, each a self-contained narrative to avoid frustrating cliff-hanger delays between episodes, that takes place in three distinct eras. The series focuses on Janni Dakkar, daughter of Captain Nemo, introduced in Chapter 1 of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Volume III: Century. This book takes place in the year of 1975 and is set in South America. The publisher description states: "It’s 1975. Janni Dakkar, pirate queen of Lincoln Island and head of the fabled Nemo family, is eighty years old and beginning to display a tenuous grasp on reality. Pursuing shadows from her past—or her imagination—she embarks on what may be a final voyage down the vastness of the Amazon, a last attempt to put to rest the blood-drenched spectres of old. With allies and adversaries old and new, we accompany an ageing predator on her obsessive trek into the cultural landscape of a strange new continent, from the ruined city of Yu-Atlanchi to the fabulous plateau of Maple White Land. As the dark threads in her narrative are drawn into an inescapable web, Captain Nemo leads her hearse-black Nautilus in a desperate raid on horrors believed dead for decades.- Wikipedia Nemo: The River of Ghosts is the third and final volume of the Nemo Trilogy.
