Overview

Tangled Webs (Black Jewels Series #5) by Anne Bishop

New York Times bestselling author Anne Bishop returns to the “bewitching” world of the Black Jewels with a tale that will “leave readers’ hearts pounding” (Publishers Weekly).
 
The invitation was signed Jaenelle Angelline, she who had been both Witch and Queen...
 
Surreal SaDiablo, the former courtesan and assassin, is the first to arrive—only to find herself trapped in a nightmare created by the tangled webs of Black Widow witches. And if she uses Craft to defend herself, she risks being sealed in the house forever.
  
Now, Jaenelle and her family must rescue Surreal and the others inside without becoming trapped themselves—and uncover the monsters capable of designing such an evil place...

Includes the Black Jewels short story “By The Time The Witchblood Blooms”

I was really looking forward to this book, but I think it fell short. I agree with another reviewer who said it might have been better as a short story. I like the idea behind it and I like the idea of a small, less stressful challenge for our characters, but when I see a novel coming out I expect some new information about the world and I didn't really learn much of anything new. I love the world that Ms. Bishop has created, but sometimes I think that now that she has created it she doesn't know where to go with it. Invisible Ring was better because we learned about fussing, the rut, Shalador, the Gray Lady and her fight against Dorothea, and more about the Craft. My main problem with this book as it reflects on the whole series is that there are so many questions unanswered and generally I would trust the author to swing back and flesh out an idea later in the series, but I don't trust her to do that any more after this book. I mean, is Daemon ever going to go into rut? Did Daemon ever take some of Jaenelle's blood? How strong is the Twilight's Dawn? All sorts of unanswered questions are left hanging from the prior books and others are brought up in this new book too regarding Daemon and Jaenelle's relationship and some other regular Blood related things that I'm not sure we'll ever know the answer to. Anyway, I love the series regardless and I think that the 'idea' is one of the more creative fantasy world ideas I've read. I like that they are not human and yet not science fiction alien. They are more dynamic than the Dragon Rider's of Pern (who I love) and they are more foreign than the people in the Kushiel's Legacy series (which I discovered after reading reviews for the Dark Jewels Trilogy and absolutely love) but, I am sorry to say, the execution is better in those series. If you're a DJT fan you will want to read the book but I kind of wish I had waited until it was in paperback.

Love this series. Adventure is front and center, romance is there but not to the point where I want to stop reading.
