Enough time has passed for the young girl Jaenelle, heir to the magical Darkness, for her physical wounds to heal, while amnesia keeps her frightening memories at bay. But with Saetan–a Black-Jewelled Warlord Prince and Jaenelle’s foster-father–to protect her, she will continue to grow. Her magic will mature. Her memories will return. And Jaenelle will face her destiny when she remembers Daemon, Saetan’s son, who made the ultimate sacrifice for her love….
She was the most painful, most glorious dance of his life.”
Anne Bishop has done it again. She has made me fall in love with yet another one of her books. This was a perfect sequel to the first book, Daughter of the Blood. Anything that was lacking in the first book (which wasn’t much) was put into this second installment.
This definitely exceeded my expectations (which were pretty high to begin with). Obviously, I will be reading the next book, Queen of the Darkness.
SIDE NOTE: I find it extremely interesting that, while Jaenelle is the main character, we haven’t gotten her point of view. Everyone around her (including the villains) have gotten one and I am really curious why Anne Bishop decided to write this that way.
