This was such an origional trilogy. and before I rant on about the end of it, let me tell you about these books from the start. Kushiels Dart, is the first. and although we have a sum what slow and confusing first chapter. It soon picks up. It explores a courtasan/medieval like World where Political thinking and intrique are at the heart. The sexual references are integral to the book. Where most Authors put it in because they want to make it 'Adult' I feel this book writes about Love in a way most teenagers above sixteen could understand. What drew me to these books was the political and very often fantatsicly intricate plot lines. You never know whats coming and the fantasy asspect of this novel will appeal to many readers. Yet non fanatsy readesr will also enjoy this trilogy, as it is a coming of age story as well. It describes the life of Phedre (the mian charcter) intimatly. The first person narrative is beautifully written. The end is just that. An end. Most trilogys end badly or on cliff hangers. I was pelased with this. As it eneded without kiling off all the loose plot lines,left scope for more and yet could still be called a definative ending to this very well written trology. But I must admit, my favourite of the three was the middle Kushiels Chosen.
