The third in the Black Jewels series. Daemon has finally been found and wears the Consort ring, the last piece of her court but she remains distant and he is bewildered and hurt by this. War is coming to Kaeleer, a war that will likely destroy everything Jaenelle has been trying to save. Heketah and Dorothea are continuing their plotting to gain control over Jaenelle and the territory of her First Circle. Can Witch find a way to stop the war and Heketah and Dorothea without destroying all of the Blood or letting them wage a war that will have almost the same effect while setting the stage for the next war?
This one was heart-wrenching in so many ways which made it a complete page turner. You knew that certain things couldn't be allowed to stand but how in the world would they work out. I'm really wishing I hadn't packed up the rest of the series because while this one doesn't end on a complete cliffhanger, I so desperately want to know what happens next.
