  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara | 2/20/2014

    " I think this was my favorite... Though it has been a while. But you really have to read them in order. Maybe I'll think of a more intelligent review later. Read review of the first book if you haven't. (Daughter of the Blood) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vash | 2/16/2014

    " ITs good. It teaches love is worth the sacrifice, and that to save those you love, sometimes requires a high price. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Persephone | 2/10/2014

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amii Morrison | 2/2/2014

    " Book 3, the conclusion to The Black Jewels Trilogy. Best of the 3 when everything comes together to an explosive end. I love it and will continue to re-read this series over and over again, never getting tired of the story line. "

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

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 1/18/2014

    " Even though I remembered what happened (more or less), I still cried a little at the end of this one. Such a great trilogy! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeannie Ellers | 1/10/2014

    " Maybe now I can get my life back!!! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Juliana | 1/5/2014

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Helen Taylor | 12/10/2013

    " I read the Black Jewels Trilogy years ago and have just been reminded of them as I saw someone else mention them. These books are imaginative and original. I couldn't put the books down and read them back to back. Well worth a read for anyone who enjoys fantasy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessi | 11/24/2013

    " Social dissertation on relationships, family, spirituality and appropriate roles and expectations of men and women. I love Daemon and Saetan so much. Beautiful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rhonda | 7/9/2013

    " This is a wonderful conclusion to the trilogy but it left me wanting more but most good stories do. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 2/3/2013

    " An amazing way to end the trilogy, but it still leaves you wanting more, which is why I was so glad when another was released. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie | 1/9/2013

    " very very nice....i love jaenelle....and saetan and daemon and lucivar...and their friends..... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sam | 7/12/2012

    " The best of the series. The conclusion of all that happened and the climatic joining of two lovers. The ending is not exactly what I would have like, but works for the novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sunny | 1/27/2012

    " Yeah, it was okay. The climax wasn't really climactic in the traditional sense and it's resolve felt a little meh. It's kinda like The Return of the Jedi sans Ewoks. A nice rounded end to a long somewhat complicated story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Caroline | 12/29/2011

    " Amazing, powerfully emotional end to the trilogy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 MELISSA | 10/29/2011

    " Loveit loved it loved it twisted but loved it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anne | 10/13/2011

    " First read: Jan 2008 "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John Brookfield | 9/30/2011

    " No question, the best book of the trilogy. It left me interested enough to want to read the other Black Jewel's books. It was a definitive ending for the story and was true to the rule "everything has a price." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Monica | 9/26/2011

    " Those annoying evil forces still can't seem to learn their lesson. You'll just have to give them an ass-kicking so thorough, they won't ever be the same. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Peggy Kassees | 8/15/2011

    " have completed the entire Black Jewels Series by Anne Bishop. She plunged me into an entirely new world, with compelling characters, vivid descriptions, and a story-line that did not allow me to put the books down. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 evilqueen21 | 6/3/2011

    " I'm so glad that I stuck with learning the world in book one and sooooo sad I've finished them now I want more! *sniffle* QOTD was amazing, just wish there was a teeny bit more to the ending. Like a good epilogue or hell who am I kidding another whole new installment would be best! :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marissa | 4/23/2011

    " Very good, fitting ending to the trilogy... by far the best one, I think. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jacqueline | 4/20/2011

    " I read this book all the time. This was one of those times when I couldn't read the ending. The first time I read it, I hated the ending. It has grown on me since then, and I will even say I like the ending, approve of it. But I couldn't get through it this time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 2/26/2011

    " Good ending to the trilogy. It still had humor mixed in with the sad and heart wrenching bits. "

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

    " This series took me a little while to get into, but once I did I was hooked. Definitely worth a read. "
