I confess: as much as I enjoyed this installment in the Black Jewels series, I have a lot of disappointment too. I loved Twilight's Dawn unlike many other fans. When I heard about The Queen's Bargain and then this book, I was super excited to read about Daemon and Surreal's life together. To me, they made sense owing to their long history together. Last book, I was concerned about how out-of-character both Daemon and Surreal were, but I shrugged it off and chose to enjoy the ride regardless. I pinned my hopes on this book that things between them would be resolved.

I guess, in a way, they were- just not in a manner I anticipated. Some fans will undoubtedly be pleased, but I feel let-down. I have some other gripes that I have to reconcile with too, but I don't want to get more spoilery.

Will I reread this book? Yeah, eventually (especially since I bought a copy.) It was still enjoyable: I love spending time in this universe with (most of) these characters.

Will it be one of my favorites when I do a Black Jewels re-read? Probably not. Like I said, I really enjoyed Twilight's Dawn. If Anne Bishop chooses to continue this series, and I hope she does, I would be content if she chooses to write some more short story anthologies instead. If this is how it ends though? So be it... It's been a great run up to this point, and I hate to see more recycled storylines. ( )

This book gave more meat to the plot line surrounding Daemon and Surreal's marriage and gave more empathy to Surreal's state of mind. I found the absolutism of the Blood's protocol with regard to Jaenelle Saetian's behavior and ignorance troubling, especially because if how sheltered from her parents' past she was. I'm still unsure how ok I am with how this plot line shook out. ( )

The first part of the book takes place shortly after The Queen's Bargain and catches the reader up on what's been happening with all our favorite characters. The children are still very young (in terms of the long-aged races) and into various pursuits. Sadi and Surreal had come to a somewhat uneasy compromise in their marriage, and Lucivar is ...well, Lucivar.
Centuries pass and the three oldest children are now older teenagers. Daemonar had made his blood run and is tutored by Witch, becoming the third edge of the triangle that is her weapons. Jaenelle Saetien is spoiled and under a bad influence, a young witch who intends to emulate Dorothea. Titian is growing up in a quieter manner, interested in exploring the world of art. The emphasis of the story is on the younger generation, though there's plenty of Sadi, Surreal, Witch, Lucivar, Karla, and the rest. I don't want to give too much away, but I was completely satisfied with the story and the ending. I admit that I'd intending to go to bed early but ended up reading to the end because I just couldn't put the book down.
It's a compelling story that takes up back to the first three books of the series in a funhouse mirror image of Jaenelle Angelline's childhood. Every year I pre-order Ms. Bishop's book for the next year as soon as I'm able, and I'm never disappointed, whether it takes place in the world of the Black Jewels, the Others, or any other of her series. She's a fabulous and original author who always delivers. ( )

Although I may need to give this a second read to let it all sink deeper in, right now, I can say that this is a superb addition to the Black Jewels series. This book revolves mainly around Jaenelle Saetien’s life. She is now more than several centuries old but still a; well, let's say, a young adult. She has not yet made her offering, so she still has only her Twilights Dawn jewel. She has turned into a right little b*itch, and it gets worse as the book progresses. But you'll see why and it's a doozy of a plot twist!

If you've kept up with the whole series, don't do as I did and re-read The Queen's Bargain (The Black Jewels #10) by Anne Bishop since it will make the first, oh, maybe 10% of this book boring. There is a lot of repetition about Surreal and Daemons' marriage and 'the heat'. A conflict that does seem to get resolved in this book.

This book is definitely a must-read for those who love The Jewels series and will definitely be going on my comfort read shelf. You know the one I mean- the books that you just read for pure enjoyment when nothing else seems to suit!
