5.0 out of 5 stars I loved it 1 Mar 2005
Format:Paperback
Anne Bishop takes the reader back into the world of the Dark Jewels trilogy with three short stories about Luciver, Saetan and finally Janelle and Daemon.
Once again, the stories are beautifully written and draw the reader into the world that Ms Bishop has created. The mark of a good storyteller.
The first story concerns Luciver meeting his wife Marian and fighting to win her despite interfernce from his mother and his own private demons.
The second is set in the past before the birth of Lucivar and Daemon and explain Saetans hatred of his wife and the extent of his revenge.
The third story is set right after the end of the Dark Jewels trilogy when Janelle was wounded trying to save her realm.
I picked up the book intending to read one story and ended up reading the entire book in less than a day. I can only congratulate Anne Bishop on the world she has created and hope she doesn't stop here!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful 27 Mar 2005
By Book Addict TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
"Dreams Made Flesh" comprises of 4 short stories focusing on the main characters featured within the Black Jewels trilogy, namely Jaenelle, Daemon, Lucivar and Saetan, although other familiar faces from all the realms feature.
Weaver of Dreams
The first and shortest story within this collection centres on the nameless daughter of Draca. At the brink of death the dragon passes on her gift of dream weaving to a small golden spider.
The Prince of Ebon Rih
This story catalogues the meeting of Lucivar and Marian, the purple dusk Eyrian hearth witch he marries. We learn how Marian came to meet Jaenelle, her uncomfortable relationship with Luthvian (Lucivar's mother) and how she won the heart of an ebon-grey jewelled Eyrian Warlord Prince.
Zuulaman
Set during his marriage period to Heketah, Saetan is blackmailed into signing unfair trade agreements in Zuulaman's favour after receiving news that the kingdom holds his heavily pregnant wife hostage. Drawing on the full power of his black jewels, Saetan's response is formidable, wiping Zuulaman, its people and history from existence.
Kaeleer's Heart
This beautiful tale is set just after Jaenelle returns from the healing web and details how her radical reduction in power affects those around her. This story also follows up her relationship with Daemon and his battle with a jealous and manipulative witch intent on having Daemon as her own. When Jaenelle's life is threatened the streets of Amdarh face the icy rage of the Sadist.
What can I say but Wow - I've been left breathless after having all my expectations reached and possibly even surpassed. Not only did this book include a fantastic conclusion to the truly memorable Black Jewels trilogy, it also contained personal stories centring on my most favourite characters. I cannot imagine a fan of Anne Bishop's mind-blowing Black Jewels trilogy being left disappointed with this book. - if you love her previous works you'll love this!

3.0 out of 5 stars disappointing filler to the Black Jewels Trilogy 11 Dec 2007
By Roman Clodia TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm afraid that unlike the other reviewers here I'm not a great fan of this book. I understand the temptation of Bishop to revisit her enthralling creation but actually I think she should have left the trilogy alone as the stories here, especially the last one, Kaeleer's Heart, presses it out of shape.

In this last (long) short story she picks up the relationship between Daemon and Jaenelle directly after the end of the trilogy but twists it into something far tamer and more akin to standard romance than it deserves. Daemon becomes domesticated and while he is allowed a few moments of return to being the Sadist, the dark heart of him that makes him such a fascinating character becomes eroded.

Like many other Bishop fans, I had to buy this book when it came out but in lots of ways I wish I hadn't. So if you love the trilogy and can resist the temptation, I wouldn't read this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful for fans 12 April 2007
By Jane A.
Format:Paperback
Four 'short' stories, that elaborate on the main characters of the Jewels Trilogy. The first is a rather abstract chapter about the archnian queen. The second one is a detailed story about how Lucivar met and married Marian, the third a short look into Saetans past and the last a very passionate story about Jaenelle and Daemon shortly after the purge at the end of Queen of Darkness. These stories might not make much sense to anyone who hasn't read the trilogy, I'm can't really tell. They are less 'political', more personal than the trilogy and much more sexual! It's almost as if Anne Bishop had to edit some of the sex out of her books - to keep the Fantasy label and stick to the plot- and then, after they'd been succesful, was given a bit of free reign.

I really enjoyed these stories very much.

5.0 out of 5 stars short stories 22 Sep 2013
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book as a fan of Ms Bishop. It is a book for those who have read her previous series of the Black Jewels Trilogy. Thi collection answers some of the questions about this trilogy, while also providing some new tales. As a fan I can honestly say I have a bias but I loved the nature of this collection.
