Editorial Reviews

Carolyn Cushman
...[T]his second book of "The Black Jewels" trilogy is more upbeat than the first....a rich and fascinatingly dark fantasy, a series definitely worth checking out...
Locus
Victoria Strauss
Heir to the Shadows isn't as dark as its predecessor... All the other elements that made the first book such a gripping read are present: vivid and sympathetic characters, a fascinating and fully-realized magical system (Bishop uses spiderweb imagery to great effect), lavish and sensuous descriptions, and interesting world building that turns traditional gender roles and concepts of dominance and submission on their heads.... It's a terrific read, and I highly recommend both it and Daughter of the Blood.
