They are Warlord Princes, men born to serve and protect. They are the Queen's Weapons, men born to destroy the Queen's enemies-no matter what face that enemy wears.

Loved the world, loved the writing, but I absolutely hated what Daemon and Surreal's relationship had turned into and was upset that their parenting was unable to prevent Jaenelle Saetan from crashing and burning from bad influences.

Ignoring the plot decisions that I really disliked, I think the book would have been better if it had been developed into a full multi-book series instead of one giant fat book. The Orian/Dorian mini-plot cut off pretty abruptly, and I would have enjoyed reading more about the kindred and their roles in properly teaching the next generation. ( )

I usually read this authors books the week the come out and this one has taken me 12 months to get through. Not the best that this series has to offer.

The continual repetition of what happened in earlier books and the need to reexplain the world building was annoying. At this point in the story most readers would be aware of the backstory. I also question parts in the middle of the book where it mentions that Luciver hadn't been back to Terreille since the events that occurred in the Queen of Darkness books since he makes multiple trips in the Shadow Queen and Shalador''s Lady. I found this to be a really bad oversight that actually made me question if the author had actually written the entirety of this book or if part of it was written by a ghostwriter. Lets hope the next one is better. ( )

I confess: as much as I enjoyed this installment in the Black Jewels series, I have a lot of disappointment too. I loved Twilight's Dawn unlike many other fans. When I heard about The Queen's Bargain and then this book, I was super excited to read about Daemon and Surreal's life together. To me, they made sense owing to their long history together. Last book, I was concerned about how out-of-character both Daemon and Surreal were, but I shrugged it off and chose to enjoy the ride regardless. I pinned my hopes on this book that things between them would be resolved.

I guess, in a way, they were- just not in a manner I anticipated. Some fans will undoubtedly be pleased, but I feel let-down. I have some other gripes that I have to reconcile with too, but I don't want to get more spoilery.

Will I reread this book? Yeah, eventually (especially since I bought a copy.) It was still enjoyable: I love spending time in this universe with (most of) these characters.

Will it be one of my favorites when I do a Black Jewels re-read? Probably not. Like I said, I really enjoyed Twilight's Dawn. If Anne Bishop chooses to continue this series, and I hope she does, I would be content if she chooses to write some more short story anthologies instead. If this is how it ends though? So be it... It's been a great run up to this point, and I hate to see more recycled storylines. ( )

This book gave more meat to the plot line surrounding Daemon and Surreal's marriage and gave more empathy to Surreal's state of mind. I found the absolutism of the Blood's protocol with regard to Jaenelle Saetian's behavior and ignorance troubling, especially because if how sheltered from her parents' past she was. I'm still unsure how ok I am with how this plot line shook out. ( )

The first part of the book takes place shortly after The Queen's Bargain and catches the reader up on what's been happening with all our favorite characters. The children are still very young (in terms of the long-aged races) and into various pursuits. Sadi and Surreal had come to a somewhat uneasy compromise in their marriage, and Lucivar is ...well, Lucivar.
Centuries pass and the three oldest children are now older teenagers. Daemonar had made his blood run and is tutored by Witch, becoming the third edge of the triangle that is her weapons. Jaenelle Saetien is spoiled and under a bad influence, a young witch who intends to emulate Dorothea. Titian is growing up in a quieter manner, interested in exploring the world of art. The emphasis of the story is on the younger generation, though there's plenty of Sadi, Surreal, Witch, Lucivar, Karla, and the rest. I don't want to give too much away, but I was completely satisfied with the story and the ending. I admit that I'd intending to go to bed early but ended up reading to the end because I just couldn't put the book down.
It's a compelling story that takes up back to the first three books of the series in a funhouse mirror image of Jaenelle Angelline's childhood. Every year I pre-order Ms. Bishop's book for the next year as soon as I'm able, and I'm never disappointed, whether it takes place in the world of the Black Jewels, the Others, or any other of her series. She's a fabulous and original author who always delivers. ( )
