    Wonderful series

    I know most of the reviwers on here think the Phedre series to be superior and more developed, but I think Moirin is in a lot of ways more independent and grounded than Phedre was, who I thought gave in to her patrons too often, even if they betrayed her multiple times. Moirin stood up for herself and spoke her mind, which I can always appreciate. I also very much enjoyed the higher element of magic in this series, which wasn't as prevelant with Phedre or Imriel. Overall an immensely satisfying read, I loved all three.

    The finish to the third Kushiel trilogy is an exciting tale

    After few years away, barbarian witch Moirin of the Maghuinn Dhonn accompanied by her husband Bao returns from the East (see Naamah's Curse) to Terre d'Ange. She is stunned with what she finds there. Her close friend Queen Jehanne died during childbirth and her spouse King Daniel is unfit to rule or raise his now three year old toddler since he is lost to his grief. His heir Prince Thierry (from his first marriage) is far away from the kingdom most likely dead in Terra Nova.

    Over her objection Moirin King Daniel declares her as the protector of his offspring the next ruler toddler Desirée who is an infant version of her late mom. When Moirin has a vision in which Jehanne insists that Thierry lives, she sets forth to travel half way around the globe to find and bring home the Prince to his kingdom that desperately needs him. Joining the quest is her former lover Raphael de Mereliot who she distrusts as he selfishly caused her to misuse her gifts years ago.


    The finish to the third Kushiel trilogy (see Naamah's Kiss) is an exciting tale that accelerates once the heroine and her retinue begin the quest. The story line introduces readers to the "Terra Nova" cultures though the indigenous people are underdeveloped and interchangeably oversimplified as seemingly from one mold. Their "new" gods and locals include some real Aztecan that anchor time and place. Fans will enjoy Moirin's latest escapades.

    Yet again

    I loved moirin and her stupid boy bao was my favorite. I loved phedre and imriel. Carey knows my heart. If there were three more id read them. And if there were three more after that, id read them too. She has just the right balance of happiness and loss, love and hate, sensuality and outright disgust. These books will be read again.

    Fantastic End to the Series

    Carey writes another book that is difficult to put down. This one fondly reminds me of the learning about Incan and Mayan history in middle school. It has the adventure that every Carey book is renowned for and makes it incredibly difficult to stop reading. Needless to say, I finished it in 2 days.
    The only disappointing feature is a small amount in the end, I found it a little to predictable. You'll know what I mean when you get to it. But still a fantastic read.

    Wonderful!

    Wonderfully written. I was completely absorbed in this book. I just wish there were more books! I am in love with Terre D'ange. Please, please Ms Carey, write more stories with characters from terre d'ange and alba

    WHAT A GREAT ENDING!!!!!

    What a great ending to Moirin's and Bao's story. Thanks Ms. Carey for giving me such great entertainment. I have read the entire Kushiel Legacy books and I hope this is not the end to the wonderful world of Terre d' Ange. I am looking forward to many more adventures.
