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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
I really enjoyed these stories very much.
I love Anne Bishop's books and this was another case of me totally ignoring my boyfriend whilst I had to find out what happens next on each page.
Would recommend this to everyone who's already read the Black Jewels trilogy, but for goodness sake don't read it before or you will have massive spoilers!
I actually have this as a book and bought this version for the kindle, too many books filling the house so gradually taking books I can read again and again onto Kindle.
This comes into the repeat reading category.
