Kushiel's Mercy (Kushiel's Legacy #03) by Jacqueline Carey
Kushiel's Mercy (Kushiel's Legacy #03)

swampyankee, July 6, 2008

Kushiel's Mercy is the final book in the second of Ms Carey's "Kushiel" trilogies.

I found this book more enjoyable than the second book in the trilogy centered around Imriel, Kushiel's Justice.

This book is a fantasy, but it's not typical swords and sorcery fantasy, in that there are not duels between wizards and swordsmen on every page.

The center of the novel is Imriel's attempt to be with his beloved Sidonie, who is the heir to the throne of Terre d'Ange. Since Imriel is the child of traitors, this is not acceptable to Sidonie's mother, who will permit Imriel and Sidonie to marry only if Imriel carries out the sentence of death that is outstanding against his mother.
