Praise for Heir to the Shadows

“Bishop seems to delight in turning fantasy conventions on their heads...still darkly opulent, often exotic.”—Locus
 
“The fabulous talent of Anne Bishop is showcased in Heir to the Shadows....Ms. Bishop’s striking magical concepts and powerful images are wonderfully leavened with unexpected dash and humor, creating an irresistible treat for fantasy fans.”—RT Book Reviews

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...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.”—SF Site

“Daemon, Lucivar, and Saetan ooze more sex appeal than any three fictional characters created in a very long time.”—The Romance Reader

Texte du rabat

For young Jaenelle, amnesia keeps her frightening memories at bay. But with Saetan to protect her, her magic--and memories--will return. Jaenelle will soon face her destiny when she remembers Daemon, Saetans son, who made the ultimate sacrifice for her love.



Résumé
In the second novel set in the “darkly fascinating world” (SF Site) of Anne Bishop’s Black Jewels Trilogy, ambitions unfurl as the realm’s dreams of a liberator have finally been made flesh...

The Blood have waited centuries for the coming of Witch, the living embodiment of magic. But Jaenelle, the young girl singled out by prophecy, is haunted by the cruel battles fought over her—for not all the Blood await her as their Savior. Some dismiss her as a myth. Some refuse to believe. And still others look forward to using her, making her a pawn to their shadowy devices.

Only time and the devotion of her loyal guardians have healed Jaenelle’s physical wounds. But her mind is fragile, barely able to protect her from the horrifying memories of her childhood. Nothing, however, can deflect her from her destiny—and the day of reckoning looms near. When her memories return. When her magic matures. When she is forced to accept her fate.

On that day, the dark Realms will know what it means to be ruled by Witch.
