Queen of the Darkness (Black Jewels Trilogy: Book 3)

By Anne Bishop

Jaenelle Angelline now reigns as Queen-protector of the Shadow Realm. No longer will the corrupt Blood slaughter her people and defile her lands. But where one chapter ends, a final, unseen battle remains to be written, and Jaenelle must unleash the terrible power that is Witch to destroy her enemies once and for all.

Even so, she cannot stand alone. Somewhere, long lost in madness, is Daemon, her promised Consort. Only his unyielding love can complete her Court and secure her reign. Yet, even together, their strength may not be enough to hold back the most malevolent of forces.

Queen of the Darkness (The Black Jewels, #3)

♥ Mini Review ♥
Hekatah and Dorothea have tainted the Blood, now its left to Jaenelle, Witch, Queen, Black Widow, Healer, dreams made flesh to clean the taint and stop a war that will claim the lives of ALL the Blood, but at what price?

Its up to the triangle, Father, Brother, Lover and the Demon Undead to lend her their strength, to love her without question, the kindred Blood, the Coven, the Dream Weavers and the Dragons, to save her if they can.

Fantasy Series Book Review by Mulluane

If you loved the previous 2 books, you will be completely enamored by this one. Its hard for me to give this book all the justice that it deserves. The scope is just too well crafted, the emotions that you experience in this story too varied and intense. Intense is a good description, everything in this final chapter is intense. The cruelty, the love, the hate, the devotion, the betrayal and the trust are all portrayed to maximum effect. And the writing, oh my, Anne Bishop makes the characters so real that you, the reader, feel everything they feel. The mark of a true master storyteller.

If you love dark fantasy, don't object to adult themes, you want to read an incredible love story, and you believe that dreams can come true, though in ways you might not even imagine, plus you know that everything must come with a price, this is a must read.
