Return to the “intense…erotic…and imaginative” (Nancy Kress) world of the national bestselling Black Jewels novels in this sequel to The Shadow Queen.

For years the Shalador people suffered the cruelties of the corrupt Queens who ruled them, forbidding their traditions, punishing those who dared show defiance, and forcing many more into hiding. Now that their land has been cleansed of tainted Blood, the Rose-Jeweled Queen, Lady Cassidy, makes it her duty to restore it and prove her ability to rule.

But even if Lady Cassidy succeeds, other dangers await. For the Black Widows see visions within their tangled webs that something is coming that will change the land—and Lady Cassidy—forever …

    " Loved this! Kept me up late three nights in a row (aurgh). Every year at Anne Bishop Book Release Time, it just seems to get better and better. This one had ohhh, all the little story twists that push my emotional reader buttons, and an antagonist you just truly love to hate. This one goes on my "treasured reads" shelf... "

    " Another enjoyable Black Jewels novel. I read these books exactly for what they are - entertaining dialogue and naughty bits, with an interesting fantasy world setting. Cassidy is a welcome addition to this series, primarily because she isn't overwhelmingly gorgeous. I never regret reading one of these books, and I'm glad that Anne Bishop continues to write them. "

    " I loved it, and the poetic justice at the end was just awesome. It had me smiling almost all the way through. Though I admit whenever I got to parts about Kermilla I just wanted to skip the whole chapter. I really did not like her. Another great book in the series, and another reason for Anne Bishop to be on of my favorite authors. "

    " Continuing where the "Shadow Queen" left off, Cassidy is still learning to be a Queen to a kingdom that has been torn apart by landen wars and sadistic queens. Her court supports the new gentle queen in her quest to renew the land although they worry about her tendency to give too much of herself. Cassidy's shaky self-confidence is injured when her First Consort, Prince Theran Grayhaven, rejects her in favor of the shallow Queen Kermilla who broke Cassidy's last court. Cassidy has her own fervent supporters, not least of whom is Gray, who is growing into his role as Jared Blaed and the multiple scelties who add their considerable Kindred abilities to her court. The question is whether Dena Nehele will survive the struggle between the two disparate queens or whether it will become the vision being seen in the visions of the Black Widows. An excellent addition to the series. "
