Home Anne Bishop Queen of the Darkness. Part of The Black Jewels series by Anne Bishop. Watching her, with wariness and resentment, were the Queens of all the Territories in the Realm of Terreille.

Home Anne Bishop Queen of the Darkness. Queen of the darkness, . She had demanded that each Territory Queen bring her two strongest Province Queens and any Warlord Princes who served her.

Queen of the Darkness book. I have been absolutely addicted to Anne Bishop's Black Jewels trilogy ever since I discovered Daughter of the Blood and after the huge changes at the end of Heir to the Shadows I couldn't wait to start Queen of the Darkness. This book was everything I'd hoped it would be and then some and I didn't want to put it down for a second. I can't believe how much I've come to love these characters and I'm was so incredibly invested in their 1st read - July 2014 2nd read - October 2018.

Queen of the Darkness. Author : Anne Bishop. Jaenelle Angelline now reigns as Queen-protector of the Shadow Realm. No longer will the corrupt Blood slaughter her people and defile her lands. Genres : Fantasy, Romance. But where one chapter ends, a final, unseen battle remains to be written, and Jaenelle must unleash the terrible power that is Witch to destroy her enemies once and for all. Even so, she cannot stand alone. Somewhere, long lost in madness, is Daemon, her promised Consort. Only his unyielding love can complete her Court and secure her reign. Yet, even together, their strength may not be enough to hold back the most malevolent of forces.

Bishop holds us spellbound from the very first page. I love the uniqueness of the three books and that it's not all ONE storyline as previously mentioned there are many different characters in realms and the mystery is finding their connections. 2 people found this helpful.

This is such a wonderful series. I'm in the process of rereading it once again though I did read each book as it came out and over and over again. This series is one of my 'comfort' series that I read to take me away from the worries of real life. Every time I read it, I find something new. The worldbuilding is complex and detailed - I just love everything Ms. Bishop writes.
This book is a wonderful ending to the trilogy, which I found overall compelling, dark, and erotic. I recommend the series for anyone who has an interest in such fantasy. However, I could not give the story 5 stars, as I found it had both good and bad.

The Good:
The world is totally unique and fascinating. It is bizarre to be rooting for demons who live in Hell, and yet you find yourself wishing to go there. The lore (jewels and witches and warlords) is so refreshingly different from standard fantasy fare. I loved learning more about the world as I read.

This book was the first time in the series in which I actually thought someone might be in any real danger. The characters in the books (most especially the first two books) seemed to react to bad events and very bad possibilities in a casual way. Problems were solved instantly. Like, "Oh no, we might all die. Okay, now we're safe." I never wanted anything bad to happen, but it never seemed like anything ever did. In this book, I found myself much more concerned about impending tragedy than in the first two.

The main male characters in this book are wonderful. Daemon in particular is the character I found I cared most about, with whom I sympathized most, and whose story I was most interested in reading. Viewing the world through his eyes was when I found myself most enthralled. If anything, I would consider Daemon to be the main character and protagonist to the story moreso than Jaenelle. I also adored Saetan's character: a powerful dark character who is also a bit of a cuddly father figure to Jaenelle and, if I dare say it, to me! I felt I loved him like a father by the end of the book.

Lucivar may be my favorite character in the book: a powerful Warlord with a questionable bloodline and a jewel that is powerful yet not QUITE as powerful as his father and brother's. But I wish we'd seen much more of him and his point of view, which brings me to:

The Bad
Lucivar was so well developed and introduced in Book 2, and I really missed him and his point of view. While Daemon does have a much larger role than in Book 2 (and I welcomed it!), I could have used much more Lucivar as well, as he plays such a critical role in the entire story.

Jaenelle, as many other reviewers have mentioned, is not the strongest female character I've ever encountered. Perhaps the strongest "magically," but I never really felt connected to her. I rooted for Daemon, Saetan, and Lucivar, who served Jaenelle with reverence. To me, Jaenelle was a force/tool who gave the "boyos" some adventure. If you are able to view Jaenelle in this way, rather than as a strong character in her own right, then you can appreciate her. She is less the protagonist than a powerful force/tool that must be protected by those around her.

Finally, as many reviewers note, the plot in this and all of these books often feels disjointed. I was often confused and wasn't certain whether I should know who these characters were or what was going on. Perhaps this is a literary tool used by the author intentionally: in a dark, confusing world, it contributes to your feeling of never really knowing what's coming. Yet I would have felt more connected to the story if I'd known the world and the side-characters better. My favorite parts of the book occurred to the characters I knew well and loved. Other parts seemed out of place and disjointed.

Overall, I did love this story, as well as the first two. The three main male characters are wonderful protagonists, and the story has a thrilling climax that kept me up well past bedtime!
I've already read this entire series once a few years ago and loved it. I bought the kindle books so I can re-read and to add to my library of go-to books I love. I have recommended this to many people who like the urban fantasy type genre. If you like Jacqueline Carey and Ilona Andrews you will most likely like these books...and the author's "Others" series too.
I read this book when I was (a lot) younger and loved it, so decided to give it another go as an adult. I really don't know why I adored it to much the first time.

It has a lot of good elements, including original world building, smouldering characters and a pretty adult level of sadistic abuse on behalf of the bad guys. But seriously, I got to the point where if I read "he rose to the killing edge" one more time I was going to hurdle my kindle! Basically even the 'good' guys are violent murdering egotists, and they all lose it about every 2 pages. This is apparently justified by them becoming loving little mush balls around a few of the female characters.

I like the fact that the novels are set in a matriarchal society, and there is a lot of originality in this book / series. The heroine is unique and interesting, as are a number of secondary characters. However most of the male characters are these crazed psychos prowling around waiting to be let off the leash, that then turn into these supposedly adorable guys at unlikely intervals. I found in the end that there was a gratuitous level of violence and sadism that wasn't really justified, and that when I thought about it I didn't really like the 'good' guys much either. And also, the author seriously, seriously overuses certain phrases and I found this intensely annoying after a while! Also the writing sometimes lacks clarity as to what exactly is actually going on, and can be confusing.

I felt like this book was almost genius, and if you are action driven and like dark fantasy then you will probably enjoy this. If you want quality prose then not so much. It is definitely different from most fantasy and is decidedly not in the young adult genre, so it has things to recommend it but yeah, I feel the hype over this novel is a bit excessive.
Anne Bishop never writes anything poorly. This book had me in tears by the end. She pulls so many emotions from her characters and by doing so also does the same to her readers. The sacrifices that Daemon, Lucivar and Saetan do for their code of honor and for the dream made flesh show the depth of intregrity that the characters share but show in different ways. Their love for each other and Janelle shine in terrifying and yet wonderful ways. The vileness of Dorothea and the demon-dead priestess as they proceed in their search for power are met head on by the Shadow Realm but the fight is one-sided and while deadly also heart rendering. I have read this book and the two that preceed it probably a dozen times over the last 10 years and when I reread them, and yes they are that good, it never ceases to amaze me at the power Anne Bishop is able to hold over my total facination of the story, even though by now I know what is coming, it still makes me wish I was a part of that realm. The sense of justice is strong but yet vulnerable even in its strength. Even when you just know the bad guys will get their just desserts, as the saying goes "everything has a price".
