Description

The land of Terre d'Ange is a place of unsurpassed beauty and grace. Phdre no Delaunay is a young woman who was born with a scarlet mote in her left eye and sold into indentured servitude as a child. Her bond was purchased by Anafiel Delaunay, a nobleman with a very special mission - and the first to recognise her for who and what she is: one pricked by Kushiel's Dart, chosen to forever experience pain and pleasure as one. Phdre has trained in the courtly arts and the talents of the bedchamber, but, above all, the ability to observe, remember, and analyse. Having stumbled upon a plot that threatened her homeland, she gave up almost everything she held dear to save it. Phdre will meet old friends and new enemiesand discover a plot so dreadful as to make the earth tremble, masterminded by the one person she cannot turn away from.

Review quote

"Kushiel's Chosen" is elegant, intricate, sensual, and captivating. Once you pick it up you won't want to put it down. "Robert Jordan" There is seemingly something for everyone here: a great love story, intense spirituality, high eroticism, and lots of adventure, intrigue, and swordplay. "Booklist (starred)""
