From the New York Times bestselling author of the Novels of the Others comes the award-winning Black Jewels trilogy--Daughter of the Blood, Heir to the Shadows, and Queen of the Darkness--together in one volume for the first time! Anne Bishop's critically-acclaimed Black Jewels Trilogy is the saga of one young woman's destiny played out against the backdrop of three powerful realms... Seven hundred years ago, a Black Widow witch saw an ancient prophecy come to life in her web of dreams and visions. Now the Dark Kingdom readies itself for the arrival of its Queen, a Witch who will wield more power than even the High Lord of Hell himself. But she is still young, still open to influence--and corruption. Whoever controls the Queen controls the darkness. Three men--sworn enemies--know this. And they know the power that hides behind the blue eyes of an innocent young girl. And so begins a ruthless game of politics and intrigue, magic and betrayal, where the weapons are hate and love--and the prize could be terrible beyond imagining... Includes an Introduction by Anne Bishopshow more

I really enjoyed this trilogy. It has moments of emotional vulnerability, twisted cruelty, extreme violence, undying love and men trying to uphold their honour in a world that wants to destroy them. These stories are dark and sensual. The writing is descriptive and flows well. The characters have great depth and I cried more than once when something terrible happened. I highly reccomend this trilogy, it's a great read and will make you think about the fragility and strength of the human more

I have read previous Anne Bishop novels and didn't find them to my taste, that is, until I found The Black Jewel Trilogy. Compared to her other books where the first paragraph was hard to read through and couldn't hold my attention, the first sentence of this book caught my attention and held it. The world she had created in this novel and the characters that live in it are breath taking and feel so real. The complexities of the world, the politics, and the society are masterfully done and she manages to convey that this could be a real place she personally visited rather than created. It does contain many scenes that would be considered "Adult Content" but they dont' define the book.

It contains the three books Daughter of the Blood, Heir of the Shadows, and Queen of the more
