Once there were great magicians born to the Maghuin Dhonn, the folk of the Brown Bear, the oldest tribe in Alba. But generations ago, the greatest of them all broke a sacred oath sworn in the name of all his people. Now, only small gifts remain to them. Through her lineage, Moirin possesses such gifts-the ability to summon the twilight and conceal herself, and the skill to coax plants to grow. Moirin has a secret, too. From childhood onward, she senses the presence of unfamiliar gods in her life: the bright lady and the man with a seedling cupped in his palm. Raised in the wilderness by her reclusive mother, it isn't until she comes of age that Moirin learns how illustrious, if mixed, her heritage is. The great-granddaughter of Alais the Wise, child of the Maghuin Donn, and a cousin of the Cruarch of Alba, Moirin learns her father was a D'Angeline priest dedicated to serving Naamah, goddess of desire. After Moirin undergoes the rites of adulthood, she finds divine acceptance...on the condition that she fulfill an unknown destiny that lies somewhere beyond the ocean. Or perhaps oceans. Beyond Terre d'Ange where she finds her father, in the far reaches of distant Ch'in, Moirin's skills are a true gift when facing the vengeful plans of an ambitious mage, a noble warrior princess desperate to save her father's throne, and the spirit of a celestial dragon.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Becky | 2/10/2014

    " Another disappointment from Carey. All the beauty of the original three books of the Kushiel's Legacy series is gone. The entire story seems to me only to be a race to see how many people the main character could sleep with; there was nothing substantial or meaningful in the plot and I was disappointed by the ending, which failed to incite any interest in the sequel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cari Kaufman | 1/26/2014

    " Good book...interesting historical/religious references while maintaining fantasy element....I would put this book more in the fantasy/romance category. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah Wilfong | 1/20/2014

    " I enjoyed this book, but didn't find the characters at engaging as her Phedre or Imriel trilogies. Still, a bisexual druid is an interesting choice for a lead character... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joy | 1/14/2014

    " This continues in the same world as Kushiel's Dart but the old characters are now ancestors. A whole new cast of character's and a new Angel to worship...LOL I enjoy them all. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Steve Are | 1/14/2014

    " an unillustrated comic book, replete with cliff-hanger. this happened and then this happened and then ... a good time-waster. easily forgettable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jc | 12/24/2013

    " This was a good read, but I didn't get as caught up in it as I did the Kushiel books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Debbie | 12/19/2013

    " I just find these books to be incredibly beautifully written. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris | 7/14/2012

    " This book is pretty typical fantasy fiction fare. Nothing spectacular to write home about, in fact, I saw most of the plot coming well in advance, unlike some of Ms. Carey's earlier books. Still, anyone who has read the author's previous works will probably enjoy the read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca Saxton | 4/12/2012

    " Jacqueline is one of my favorite authors. I loved her first series the best, but this is a must. She knows how to bring you in to love the characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anna | 3/1/2012

    " It was good, but not as good as Kushiel's or Imriel's Trylogies. There is something lacking in it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ulla | 9/6/2011

    " I love this story! Have read the book a few times already but now the audiobook version, narrated by the fantastic Anne Flosnik, takes the story to an even higher level! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Night Goddess | 7/14/2011

    " Great start to a new trilogy in the wonderful eroctic world of Jacqueline Carey's Terre d' Ange. What can I say other than I absolutely loved it and I fell instantly in love with Moirin. I can't wait to start book 2. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen Roberts | 6/9/2011

    " Characters are not as indepth as the first in the series. Story seemed to drag in places and this book didn't read as fast as the first in the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Clair | 4/25/2011

    " <3<3<3<3<3 A perfectly intoxicating book to hide in. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ruby | 4/18/2011

    " absolutely stunning. Carey has not lost any of her touch with this new generation of D'Angelines and others in her world. i am looking forward to the next two books in this part of the saga. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 4/1/2011

    " 1st in 3rd set of trilogiesw/ Mornin; good "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judith | 3/2/2011

    " As usual, I enjoy the author's style of writing and the story line. While this is set in the same world as her previous books, the character is from a different background than previous main charcters and so gives the reader a different perspective of this very interesting world. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole | 2/19/2011

    " ripped through all five billion pages in a matter of days. i love trashy fantasy-romance! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peg | 2/12/2011

    " this is one of my naughty pleasures. extremely sexy book set in a detailed, complicated world mythically based on our own. The previous 6 were terrible/wonderful. Not for the faint of heart. "

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

    " If you love Carey and want more of her, this is the book. This is the start for anew heroine to love. Delightful and strong. She even brings the far east into it with grace and charm. Loved it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindy | 1/30/2011

    " Still silly. Still fun. This was the first one I had the audiobook experience with. The accent was a little silly and the dragon voice was not great, but I was still giddily absorbed. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nichole | 1/29/2011

    " I feel like it's getting stale. And uninspired. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lori | 1/14/2011

    " 3.5 stars. As with the last trilogy, I expect my rating for the first book in the series is a bit lower, because I have to get to know and care about the characters and figure out the place/time in which they live. Moving on to book 2. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rei | 1/13/2011

    " This is the first book of Carey's I've loved so much since Kushiel's Dart. The characters were engaging and interesting, plus I loved Bao. I don't know what it was about him, but I absolutely loved him. "
