    Lovely Coda to the Dark Jewels Trilogy

    This is definitely not the book I'd start with if you're new to Anne Bishop or her Dark Jewels series, but if you're a fan of the trilogy, I'd definitely recommend this book. I've heard this book compared to fan fiction, not in a disparaging sense, but because it functions in filling some notable gaps in the trilogy you might be curious about, bits of backstory. It's a meaty book nevertheless with two out of the four stories novel-length: "The Prince of Ebon Rih" and "Kaeleer's Heart." The first tells the love story of Lucifar and Marian and how they got together--a fairly standard, fluffy romance. The second is about the immediate aftermath to the trilogy, about the nature of Twilight's Dawn. I found both stories an engaging read. I was less enamored of the opening story, "Weaver of Dreams" but it is very short and is from an interesting point of view. "Zuulaman," of novelette length is a chilling tale of Saetan's past. I'd definitely call this book for fans only, but that's not to put it down--those who enjoyed the other books wouldn't want to miss this one.

    Excellent follow-up

    This was an excellent follow-up on some of the threads left hanging in the Jewels trilogy. It also gave some interesting backstory. My only complaint is that I want more of the world of the Blood.

    Great Read

    I only recently picked up the Jewels trilogy and I was absolutely spellbound and wanted more, luckily this has come out. Once again, Ms. Bishop shows that she has a wonderful knack for characterization and a poetic voice. The short stories here could stand alone, but carry more if you have read the jewels trilogy. The stories aren't quite as strong as the preceeding novels, but they are well written and spell binding. And they do leave you wanting more.

    For hardcore Jewels fans only

    Anne Bishop, after giving us the Tir Alainn trilogy, has gone back to her award-winning, besteselling roots of the Black Jewels realms. This novel, a collection of four short stories, gives insight into different events that have influenced the events that take place in the Black Jewels trilogy, as well as what occurs afterwards. The book is well written and much like her original trilogy, although the stories told are unimpressive and seem more like a cashing-in on the series than explaining things more in-depth. These stories can be appreciated if you are an adamant fan of the Black Jewels series, but are otherwise lackluster. The stories are written with the expectation that the reader is strongly familiar with the Black Jewels trilogy, so if it has been a while since you have read the originals (like me), it may benefit you to reacquaint yourself with the original story, characters, and Realms, otherwise you will be lost. An overall fun, quick read, but not vital to knowing the secrets behind the Black Jewels trilogy.

    w00t!

    Anne Bishop is a wonderful author. The Black Jewels trilogy I own and I have read it about four times. They're definitely worth getting. Her characters are very realistic and they're very easy to cling to. I have not read this book yet, Dreams Made Flesh, but I fully plan on buying it to own it, because I believe that it will be worth it. And who doesn't want to know more about the character's dirty pasts...? ^___~
