The land of Terre d'Ange is a place of unsurpassed beauty and grace. The inhabiting race rose from the seed of angels and men, and they live by one simple rule: Love as thou wilt. Phèdre nó Delaunay was sold into indentured servitude as a child. Her bond was purchased by a nobleman, the first to recognize that she is one pricked by Kushiel's Dart, chosen to forever experience pain and pleasure as one. He trained Phèdre in the courtly arts and the talents of the bedchamber---and, above all, the ability to observe, remember, and analyze.

When she stumbled upon a plot that threatened the very foundations of her homeland, she gave up almost everything she held dear to save it. She survived, and lived to have others tell her story, and if they embellished the tale with fabric of mythical splendor, they weren't far off the mark. The hands of the gods weigh heavily upon Phèdre's brow, and they are not finished with her. While the young queen who sits upon the throne is well loved by the people, there are those who believe another should wear the crown...and those who escaped the wrath of the mighty are not yet done with their schemes for power and revenge.

    " I loved it. It is well written, has great characters and kept me interested all the way through. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christina | 1/24/2014

    " I just finished reading this book for the second time, and I still love it. My only criticism is that Phedre escapes impossible situations a little too easily, but that's a minor complaint. The writing and story are terrific. I love this series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Justine | 1/19/2014

    " excellent pay-off for the world-building in Kushiel's Dart. Stands very well on its own, taking readers on a complex journey of intrigue, desire and splendid pleasure. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 GabbyT | 1/12/2014

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lauren | 12/29/2013

    " Another exciting installment, full of agony and ecstasy. And pirates. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jodi Dewynter | 12/28/2013

    " To my absolute horror, I did not finish this book. I am an obsessive reader and ALWAYS complete the novels I start. I just could not get into this book. I struggled through the first book in the series and to my disappointment this was the same. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brie | 12/25/2013

    " I think this is the weakest of the three books from the original trilogy. Still a good read, and the third book is excellent! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christy | 12/14/2013

    " What can I say? I truly enjoy this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peggy | 6/27/2013

    " The second book in the first trilogy. The sex is amazing, but the story will sweep you along in its broad scope. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Van | 2/4/2013

    " Very provocative, a perfect story of betrayal, pain and sacrifice. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Darren Nomura | 11/30/2012

    " This sequel does the story and characters justice. New characters as well as returning ones make this story. Great continuation of the series and looking forward to the third. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angelica Stevenson | 9/24/2012

    " I absolutely loved these books, I read them over and over again. I was even trying to buy all of them and I don't know or remember what I did with them. However now I probably won't read the last trilogy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gypsie Holley | 9/3/2012

    " The story continues breathlessly flawed and poetically pristine. I haven't slept in 5 days and I am exhausted from the immense epic I feel myself thoroughly absorbed in. I am there, like I have never been in another tale. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charlotte | 7/28/2012

    " This book was a fitting sequel to Kushiel's Dart. It concluded some of the open-ended relationships and plot points. But it dragged in the middle. The beginning and ending were engaging and I'm still interested in reading the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kris Nichols | 7/2/2012

    " I didn't feel it was quite as excellent as Kushiel's Dart, but it still kept me reading with little interruption. Definitely enjoyed it enough to start Kushiel's Avatar tonight! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kat | 4/5/2012

    " this is one of my favorite fantasy series... i don't know why all the books aren't on here. it's well written, it's got lots of sexy parts, a strong female heroine, magic, swordfighting and clever alternate history. what more could you want? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Clairissa | 3/6/2012

    " I loovvved loved this book. It was exciting and full of twists and turns that I never saw coming. Jacqueline Carey is truly an amazing writer. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Natalie Garside | 1/12/2012

    " Book 2 in the Kushiel's series gets my full 5 stars because - there is a scene of daring rescue that actually took my breath away. The way adventures take your breath away when you're 5. Yes, I put the book down, then picked it up again. It was awesome. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bekie Edwards | 11/19/2011

    " As good as the first book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stefany | 6/19/2011

    " The ending is worth it, for all the pain you endure while reading it (in a good way). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Natalie | 5/17/2011

    " Book 2 in the Kushiel's series gets my full 5 stars because - there is a scene of daring rescue that actually took my breath away. The way adventures take your breath away when you're 5. Yes, I put the book down, then picked it up again. It was awesome. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jacquelyn | 3/22/2011

    " I really enjoyed watching the characters I fell in love with in Kushiel's Dart evolve in this book. Rife with intrigue, Phedre's journey carries the reader across several different landscapes, each filled with culture and history. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deviant | 3/3/2011

    " I loved the way this book picks up right from the first one. Mrs. Carey didn't have you scrambling your brain to remember anything from the first book. Instead of the characters not growing or remaining the same. You can see where Phèdre nó Delaunay has involved into a intelligent young woman. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peggy | 1/11/2011

    " The second book in the first trilogy. The sex is amazing, but the story will sweep you along in its broad scope. "

    " The Second book in Kushiel's Legacy Series.

    "

    " I enjoyed the first couple of this series, but I feel like they eventually just fall into soft-core pron. "
