This Halcyon Classics ebook contains three works of the SHE (or AYESHA) series by H. Rider Haggard: SHE, AYESHA: THE RETURN OF SHE, and SHE AND ALLAN.
The books follow the adventures of an expedition to an unexplored part of East Africa, where the group finds Ayesha, a beautiful and immortal sorceress who claims the expedition's leader is the reincarnation of her long-dead beloved. Ayesha had become ageless and perfectly beautiful more than 2 millennia earlier by immersing herself in a magic flame, and pressures the expedition leader to immerse himself as well.
