A decade of peace has passed in Terre D'Ange, the country founded by the god Elua. Since the world's most famous courtesan saved her queen from assassination, Phdre n? Delauny has been enjoying a quiet life until a prophetic dream calls upon her to serve her gods one last time. But what they ask may be too painful for even an anguissettte to bear. When the young son of the traitor Melisande ShahrizaiImriel de la Courcel, who stands third in line for the crownis kidnapped, Phdre enters an uneasy bargain to find the boy in exchange for the information that will free her beloved childhood friend Hyacinthe from his eternal imprisonment as the new Master of the Straits. When it becomes clear that Imriel's disappearance is part of a larger, far darker scheme, Phdre knows it is her sacred duty to end it. At her side is her loving consort Josselin, who will also risk losing himself in Phdres gamble to rescue Imriel and save her country from a spreading darkness. And beyond her doubt, her fear, dangles the promise of a holy mystery so great that it could transform Phdre into justice incarnate... or consume her in the flames of her own passion. All of Phdres journeys have led here, to the grandest of conclusions in an epic tale of fantasy, adventure, and, above all, love. Kushiel's Avatar is the stunning conclusion to Jacqueline Carey's epic trilogy.

Day 4 of #7days7covers.

A few years back, Tor partnered with a now-defunct book tracking app to give members digital copies of all the books they already owned in print. I leaped on it—and since Tor‘s ebooks don‘t have DRM, I replaced some of the North American covers with ones I liked better. (I‘m apparently the only Litten who dislikes John Jude Palencar‘s art.) I think this is the UK cover.

silentrequiem I remember that Program! I wished I had jumped on it... 3mo
xicanti @silentrequiem it was a great opportunity, especially since so many of Tor‘s books are THICK. I find them way easier to read as ebooks thanks to my tiny hands. 3mo

@Jas16 is having a giveaway to celebrate a Litfluence milestone! Congratulations! 🎊🎉🎈

I would love to go to a signing with Jacqueline Carey! I own a couple of her signed books, but only because I ordered them that way. I would love to meet her and tell her how much I love her work!

#signmeup

TsundokuAleax I love the Kushiel books so much! I got them all in trade and am currently trying to get hard covers of them. The only problem is that I am fairly attached to the original cover art and it is a slow go 5mo
Soubhiville @TsundokuAleax I am attached to the original cover art too. I do like the new covers, but don‘t have any of them. Are you in the US? Have you looked on Half Priced Books website? 5mo
Jas16 An author I really need to try. Great choice and thanks for entering! 5mo
TsundokuAleax @Soubhiville I am in the US but have this weird need to find them in the wild. Eventually I will break and just find them online but it will probably be a bit before I give in. I managed two so far and only want the original trilogy in hard back. 5mo

Good morning Litsy! First challenge for day 2 of #24in48 is #FavoriteSeries! What a hard choice! I LOVE chunky fantasy series.

Jacqueline Carey is my most read, so I‘m going with the first Kushiel trilogy. Incredibly sexy, kind of dark, wrought with intrigue and adventure and loss and love, these are my perfect books! The main character is bisexual, polyamorous, and derives pleasure from pain. And she‘s god chosen. 🥰😍 So good!

Re-reading the Kushiel Series 👌🏽 May not be everyone‘s cup of tea. I myself am in awe of the world she (Jacqueline Carey) paints with words.

I love all of JC‘s Terre D‘Ange books, but this, the culmination of the first trilogy, is my very favorite.

lauren.lerner This was my fave from this trilogy too! 2y

Congrats @melyndarae , and thanks for the #mels3kgiveaway!

It‘s really hard for me to choose a favorite trilogy. I love fantasy trilogies! But I‘ll choose Jacqueline Carey‘s first Kushiel set. Phedre and Joselin and their adventures and the intrigue are delicious and shocking.

(These also work for #powerandthepassion for #marchintooz)

TsundokuAleax Omg, I love these books so much!!! No one ever knows them. I have the original paperbacks as well and kick myself that I never got the hardback versions. I am not a fan of some of the new covers and am always on the hunt when I got to secondhand shops now. 2y
Soubhiville @TsundokuAleax i had all the hardcovers except Dart, and my husband got me the first edition signed copy for Xmas. I‘ve read this series more times than any other. I love JC! 2y
TsundokuAleax @Soubhiville wow, you husband deserves a gold medal. I keep wanting to reread them but then I look at my TBR pile. I am hoping this year to make a dent in those so next year I can reread some books on my shelves.. 2y

My #litsyavatar is of me when I first got my favorite workout shirt.

I was eyeing it at the BookRiot store for awhile, but my boyfriend told me it was silly. Unknown to me at the time, he said it since he already bought it for me and wanted it to be a surprise. ❤️

At first I couldn't think of a character that embodied the traits of #Dracula so I was going to go with my favourite vampires instead. Then I remembered The Mahrkagir from the last Kushiel Trilogy book. He was proud to be the so-called vessel of his god, and primal and predatory. He was cruel and loved violence and to take the life from people.
