'Darkly mesmerising' - Locus

The first in New York Times bestselling author Anne Bishop's captivating Black Jewels trilogy. The Darkness has had a Prince for a long, long time. Now the Queen is coming.

For years the realm of Terreille has been falling into corruption, as the powerful Queens who rule it turned to cruelty.

But there is hope. A prophetic vision has revealed the coming of a Queen more powerful than any before. And once the foundations of her power - father, brother, lover - are in place, she will emerge from the darkness, bringing freedom.

For she is the living myth, dreams made flesh. Not just any witch, but Witch.

Lavishly sensual, sexuality breathes throughout the book, with a humming roar of violence lurking in the background, or sometimes just exploding across the page in a fury . . . * SFFWorld *
an incredible world that I will never forget * Goodreads *
A terrific writer . . . the more I read, the more excited I became because of the freshness of her take on the usual high fantasy setting, the assurance of her language, all the lovely touches of characterisation that she slips in so effortlessly * Charles de Lint, bestselling author of Moonheart *
Vividly painted . . . dramatic, erotic, hope-filled * Lynn Flewelling, bestselling author of the Nightrunner series *
Intense . . . erotic, violent and imaginative. This one is white-hot * Nancy Kress, bestselling author of Beggars in Spain *
