Overview

Shalador's Lady (Black Jewels Series #7) by Anne Bishop

Return to New York Times bestselling author Anne Bishop’s world of the Black Jewels—where a Queen has emerged from the shadows to bring hope to an impoverished people…
 
For years the Shalador people suffered the cruelties of the corrupt Queens who ruled them, punishing those who dared show defiance, and forcing many more into hiding. And even though the refugees have found sanctuary in Dena Nehele, they have never been able to call it home.
 
Now that Dena Nehele has been cleansed of tainted Blood, the Rose-Jeweled Queen, Lady Cassidy, knows that restoring the land will require all her heart and courage as she summons the untested power within her, a power capable of consuming her if she cannot control it.
 
And even if Lady Cassidy survives her trial by fire, other dangers await. For the Black Widows see visions within their tangled webs that something is coming that will change the land—and Lady Cassidy—forever...

Though not as engrossing as the Black Jewels trilogy this is a nice addition to the overall world. It was a nice change to see how a lighter jewel court can work and still be strong. I like revisiting the main charecters from the orginal story while seeing the world grow as a whole. Though I would like to see more background on some of the others like Gabrielle, Chosti and the Del a Mon. I know some have said that they feel like the addition of the original cast seems out of place but I have to disagree. We are being given the chance to see thier lives grow, of seeing thier "life" not just the war. I loved the reference to the Black court and the fact that there are those out there that still fill the circles. Though we all know there is no "Black Court anymore". However before reading this or "The Shadow Queeen" everyone should read "The Invisible Ring". The story arc in the "Shadow Queen and Shalador's Lady" come from the events in the "Ring". Of course to truly understand everything one should always start at the beginning with Daughter of the Blood. This book is a great addition to the series and I cant wait for the next one to come out in March 2011. I'm already counting the days....

There is something about the world that Anne Bishop creates with her words. The world that Cassidy and her court live in is nothing that Cassidy has lived or ruled as a queen, for the fact the ones who ruled before were cruel and twisted, so everyone was distrustful of a queen they didnt know. Until they see what kind of queen Cassidy really is and it opens there eyes. When they decide to move the court and place it away from Grayhaven you see the characters inner selves come out, there strengths and there weaknesses. You see them all come to be who they were all meant to be if there had not been the twisted queens that came before. This book in the series had everything you could ask for in a book, i personally couldnt put it down, then i read it again after ive read the books that came before. I truly hope that she decides to write further in this series giving us the chance to glance at some others who are connected to the "former" Dark Court but may not have been known before. To see how the people after the purge, they pick up there lives and build a better life for everyone.

This is the best book she has written. Even though it is set in the Black Jewels world, it gave me the sense that these were "real" people with "real" problems. The healing progression of Jared Blade was amazing. It is probably best to read The Shadow Queen for background.

Not the first of the series, so by know you should know if you like or hate the world created by Ann Bishop. For me this was my favorite from the series.
