Returning to Terre d'Ange, Moirin finds the royal family broken. Wracked by unrelenting grief at the loss of his wife, Queen Jehanne, King Daniel is unable to rule. Prince Thierry, leading an expedition to explore the deadly jungles of Terra Nova, is halfway across the world. And three-year-old Desiree is a vision of her mother: tempestuous, intelligent, and fiery, but desperately lonely and a vulnerable pawn in a game of shifting political allegiances. As tensions mount, King Daniel asks that Moirin become Desiree's oath-sworn protector. Navigating the intricate political landscape of the Court proves a difficult challenge, and when dire news arrives from overseas, the spirit of Queen Jehanne visits Moirin in a dream and bids her undertake an impossible quest. Another specter from the past also haunts Moirin. Travelling with Thierry in the New World is Raphael de Mereliot, her manipulative former lover. Years ago, Raphael forced her to help him summon fallen angels in the hopes of acquiring mystical gifts and knowledge. It was a disastrous effort that nearly killed them, and Moirin must finally bear the costs of those bitter mistakes. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Anna | 2/11/2014

    " I couldn't even finish this. Just didn't care for this character at all. No pathos or anything. Loved Phaedre and Imriel much more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer Johnson | 1/25/2014

    " I always enjoy Carey's books, and like always, this one was a good read. It was fun, suspenseful, and fast paced. That being said, I didn't love it. I could never get into Morin and Bao's adventures the way I did Phedre's and Imriel's. The books in this series somehow lacked the passion and poignancy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsey | 1/20/2014

    " Not the greatest of the series, but really, the only bad thing is about it is that the series is now over :( "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vince | 1/14/2014

    " The third in Naamah's series. Carey, you hold me in wonder. I will remember the series fondly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindywho | 1/13/2014

    " I'm going to miss this goofy universe. This last installment was a bit more cozy than most of them. Moirin doesn't often have to decide or figure much out on her own. Bao causes absolutely no trouble (to make up for the past, perhaps) and everything comes full circle. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gwendalyn Krebs | 1/2/2014

    " Can't wait for this to be out!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Night Goddess | 12/27/2013

    " A great ending to Moirin's and Bao's story. Thanks Ms Carey for the wonderful world of Terre d' Ange. I hope there is more to come. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenifer | 9/27/2013

    " An excellent end to a very long group of books. I'm looking forward to seeing what Carey has in store next ... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shifra | 3/30/2013

    " awesome!!! a fantastic conclusion to an absolutely remarkable series/trilogy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Blesha | 3/5/2013

    " I cried, laughed, got angry, engaged, loved some characters and truly disliked others. Wow. Just wow! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Megs | 11/10/2012

    " It was an enjoyable read, but not quite on the same level as Kushiel's Dart. I adored all the little researchy details that went into making Terra Nova, though. That made my geek heart happy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindy | 7/24/2012

    " Really liked this one - thought it was the strongest book of the three. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anna | 5/13/2012

    " I'd actually give this a 3.5; it might be better had I not jumped in at the middle of the series. I'd go back and catch up. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lauren | 3/21/2012

    " It was an enjoyable end to the series, but it was nowhere near as interesting as the last 2 trilogies. I would recommend the first 6 books to friends, but not necessarily this last series. Although I enjoyed them, I feel that they are very different than the first trilogy set. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer Sigman | 1/19/2012

    " (actually 4 1/2) A wonderful ending to the trilogy. Took half a star off for a rather rushed wrap-up, but it didn't ruin anything. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 JJ | 11/11/2011

    " Enjoyable as always, although I do still love the Phedre's Kushiel books best. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenifer | 10/11/2011

    " While I'm sad to be leaving Terre d'Ange again, I believe it was a fitting end to the saga. A definite must read for everyone! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andreasoldier | 9/27/2011

    " Finally finished this trilogy, a more gentle, less inspiring tale than the other 2 trilogies in this series. A good read, but I could put these books down, something I found difficult with the other six. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 7/7/2011

    " I admit this trilogy pales in comparison to the first one but it was still a magical, wonderful read. I could never give Jacqueline Carey less than 5 stars because I enjoy her gorgeous prose too much. "

    " Not great literature, but a ton of fun to read . "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 JJ | 6/29/2011

    " Enjoyable as always, although I do still love the Phedre's Kushiel books best. "

    " Much better than the last one, and a satisfying end to this trilogy. "
