Daughter of the Blood
Daughter of the Blood | Anne Bishop
17 posts | 38 read | 21 to read
The Darkness has had a Prince for a long, long time. Now the Queen is coming. For years the realm of Terreille has been falling into corruption, as the powerful Queens who rule it have turned to cruelty. But there is hope - a prophetic vision has revealed the coming of a Queen more powerful than any other. And once the foundations of her power - father, brother, lover - are in place, she will emerge from the darkness, bringing freedom. For she is the living myth, dreams made flesh; not just any witch, but Witch.

Mehso-so

So. I was given this book (and its next two) by a friend. I had no idea what it expect, and what I got was...interesting. Darkness. Magic. Mentions of unicorns and dragons (maybe they come in later books?). Rape (men and women and children). Child abuse. Pedophilia. A dude named Satan (I mean, it‘s spelled saetan, but come on). Despite all that, I‘m intrigued. The world building was cool, though confusing, and I love the darkness of it. We‘ll see!

There are so many I could have chosen, but I'm going with this trilogy. #illalwayslovethisbook

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Pretty cover!! 13mo
Nessavamusic This is an excellent trilogy! 13mo
tdrosebud @Nessavamusic It is, I enjoyed the others set in this world as well. I'm planning a reread of them all this year as she is planning a new one for next year. 13mo

Nessavamusic @tdrosebud I am a huge fan of Anne Bishop 13mo
vkois88 I haven't read them, but this cover is gorgeous 13mo
Lauranahe You posted this a while ago, but I was searching this book on here. I‘m about 2/3 of the way through and am pretty confused. I really wish there was a map, because all these places are jumbled in my head. I feel like I‘ve been reading this forever! 9mo
tdrosebud @Lauranahe If you go to her website and go to the Black Jewels page, you can scroll down and click on a map. However it is extremely minimal as she says she is geographically challenged and things can change. It is at least something, but the is no detail. I hope the confusion abates and that you enjoy. 9mo

This was definitely just meh for me. I finished it and had no desire to find out what happened next. So away it goes and on to the next.

Owlizabeth I love Anne Bishop‘s The Others series so I thought I‘d try this and it was a big ol‘ nope for me too. 1y

For Dewey's #reversereadathon I'll probably be focusing on Daughter of the Blood, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, and Sense and Sensibility. We'll see how this goes. 😂

So both library books were a bust—I‘m not sure if I just wasn‘t in the mood or if I genuinely just don‘t care, but I‘m moving on. I‘ve heard great things about Anne bishop and this has been sitting on my shelf for a long time.

iread2much This is one of my favorite series. It‘s gets super dark and twisted super fast, so be prepared, but the world she builds is fascinating! If you like the first book; I suggest reading all of her novellas in the series as well, they really flush out the world. 2y

That whole thing between Surreal and Daemon still makes me cringe. I feel so badly for both of them.
I also feel bad for Saetan. He hates that Cassandra is afraid of him. I'd want Saetan for a friend.

Sometimes you just have to be in the right frame of mind for a particular book. I started this one before (last year?) and abandoned it, because I just wasn‘t feeling it at the time, but knew I‘d come back to it. Started it over today, and I am *into it*. Except, um, how kinky are those Rings of Obedience that the bad queens make the men wear? I‘m apprehensive about what the love scenes in this book may turn into! 🤭

azulaco For those wondering about the rings, the men don‘t wear them on their fingers. No. They wear them on an appendage further south. Their “male organ,” as the author puts it. 2y

One of my favorite fantasy series ever. Have read the original trilogy at least 10 times. Amazing read.

This was one of the first really #dark fantasy novels I ever read. I remember enjoying the series at the time, but I have no idea how well they‘ve held up. Photo is of Charleston Harbor in the dark. #noteworthynovember @Jess7

This keeps getting recommended to me when I say I like the Kushiel novels. Trying to keep my expectations in check because I LOVED the Kushiel books.

I think I am just not in the right frame of mind to read this book. It's a little too fantasy-genre for me right now. It's an interesting premise, though. I plan to get back to it eventually, but right now I'm going to let this little library book go home.

My hold came in at the library! I've skimmed the first few pages and I think I'm going to like this one. Another NPR Pop Culture Happy Hour romance recommendation for romance beginners.
