    " I just totally adore this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicola | 1/21/2014

    " Jacqueline Carey delivers another engaging story in the world of the god-touched inhabitants of Terre d'Ange. Carey uses Moirin's search for her stubborn soul mate, Bao, to expand the scope of her world to include people and places as yet unencountered in her previous novels, adding new richness to her story-telling. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meghan | 1/11/2014

    " Loved it, as always. Jacqueline Carey's characters are amazing, especially her supporting characters. I cannot wait for the next! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie | 12/23/2013

    " I really enjoyed this installment in the Legacy series. I don't think the books will ever be as good as the very first one, mainly because Phedre is still to me one of the best fantasy heroines ever, but I really do love the main character that Carey created for these last two novels. Moirin is different, intriguing, and completely likable. I realized why I wasn't all that satisfied with the middle three in this series - I did not like Imriel all that much. He bored me. Also, I think it helps that this series is set hundreds of years after Phedre lived. It gives it a little distance and made me attach my emotions to Moirin instead of just hoping for a little glimpse of Phedre and Joscelin. Moirin is full of magic and love with just enough of the Maghuin Dhonn and Alban in her to not make her fully D'Angeline, which I really enjoy. I will definitely read the last book in this series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Charissa Fenton | 12/21/2013

    " Moirin is no Phedre and worse still, she admits it. I found myself bored by the obvious plot and flat characters. Ultimately Moirin's story has always been a copy of Phedre's which wouldn't be so bad if it wasnt such a poor copy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 EroticallyGrimm | 12/21/2013

    " Great story! It's a much simpler story when compared to Phedre's or Imriel's story, but a great story none the less. Looking forward to the final book in the trilogy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly Spoer | 12/11/2013

    " At this point in the game, I just read these because one comes out every year and it's easy reading. I'm not invested anymore, but I'm curious. Nothing compares to the first 3 books that Carey wrote. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chichi | 11/12/2013

    " I love Jacqueline Carey. Nothing like a fantasy story with good romance. :') "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 10/26/2013

    " Still enjoy reading Carey's books, but this one feels like it lost a little steam compared to the others. Could be the dreaded "middle book of the trilogy" problem. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Caitlin (Ayashi) | 9/15/2013

    " Once I got this out of the library I pretty much couldn't put it down. LOVED it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steph | 8/21/2013

    " I really enjoyed the newest addition to the Naamah series. While I liked and was more engaged with Phedre and her adventures, I also enjoy Moirin and Bao they are growing on me. I look forward to the next installment in the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caroline | 3/24/2013

    " I have some quibbles with this book, but it's still compulsively readable. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bobbi Taniguchi | 3/22/2013

    " Writing is okay, but topic-wise the book is more about alternative sexuality. Not a clean read. I won't be pursuing other books by this author. That said, it isn't blatant. But still, not my cup of tea. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kai | 2/4/2013

    " Brilliant. I love Carey's writing style and the way she takes you through myriad emotions all in a few paragraphs. Can't wait to get the final installment in my mitts.. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cindy | 11/3/2012

    " Lovely cover and interesting interplay/overview of a range of Asian cultures, but rather meandering and characters could be more compelling. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Annette | 8/10/2012

    " One of my favorite book series! I can read these books and the hours just past by took me two days to read it. I just love Jacqueline Carey and I love the story of the characters and how they develop throughout the whole series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 N3k0 | 2/12/2012

    " Ok book but I did not like it as much as the first "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Darshan Elena | 1/5/2012

    " A great addition to the series! Without a doubt, these are trashy fantasies but the best of the bunch. It was with much sadness that I finished this novel. Mayhap the next one will be out soon! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Teresa | 8/29/2011

    " Wow! Moirin sure is going thru a lot of adventures in the name of her gods. I was glad that she finally found some happiness w/Bao at the end of this one. I really like this series and am looking forward to #3. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judith | 7/2/2011

    " I am enjoying this trilogy almost as much as the Kushiel trilogy and more than the trilogy regarding Imriel. Themain character is interesting, the writing good, and the plot interesting and decently paced. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jane Ono | 6/11/2011

    " I always love Jacqueline Carey's lush descriptions of far-off places. Her characters always seem alive to me. I couldn't put this one down. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 jenn | 5/19/2011

    " Too much religion. Too much 'creamy smile' and 'sweet boy'. Rather mediocre lead. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janine | 5/15/2011

    " Jacqueline Carey's premises are so interesting and she combines history and fantasy in really interesting ways, but the stories themselves ramble on and on and on . . . "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shawn | 4/24/2011

    " While I did enjoy it, I do miss the old series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judith | 4/11/2011

    " I am enjoying this trilogy almost as much as the Kushiel trilogy and more than the trilogy regarding Imriel. Themain character is interesting, the writing good, and the plot interesting and decently paced. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Misty | 3/23/2011

    " A bit disappointed in this one (compared to the rest in the series). Got a bit boring and repetitious. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sueij | 3/20/2011

    " I just *like* Carey's writing. She creates characters so well. The events occasionally felt a bit contrived to make sure there would be a story to tell, but then again, the people who have nothing happen to them wouldn't be worth writing a story about. Start at the beginning of the series, though. "
