Publisher Comments:

The land of Terre d'Ange is a place of unsurpassing beauty and grace. It is said that angels found the land and saw it was good...and the ensuing race that rose from the seed of angels and men live by one simple rule: Love as thou wilt.

Phèdre nó Delaunay is a young woman who was born with a scarlet mote in her left eye. Sold into indentured servitude as a child, her bond is purchased by Anafiel Delaunay, a nobleman with very a special mission...and the first one to recognize who and what she is: one pricked by Kushiel's Dart, chosen to forever experience pain and pleasure as one.

Phèdre is trained equally in the courtly arts and the talents of the bedchamber but, above all, the ability to observe, remember, and analyze. Almost as talented a spy as she is courtesan, Phèdre stumbles upon a plot that threatens the very foundations of her homeland. Treachery sets her on her path; love and honor goad her further. And in the doing, it will take her to the edge of despair...and beyond. Hateful friend, loving enemy, beloved assassin; they can all wear the same glittering mask in this world, and Phèdre will get but one chance to save all that she holds dear.

Set in a world of cunning poets, deadly courtiers, heroic traitors, and a truly Machiavellian villainess, this is a novel of grandeur, luxuriance, sacrifice, betrayal, and deeply laid conspiracies. Not since Dune has there been an epic on the scale of Kushiel's Dart—a massive tale about the violent death of an old age and the birth of a new.

Synopsis:

A nation born of angels, vast, intricate, and surrounded by danger; a woman born to servitude, unknowingly given access to the secrets of the realm; and a plot borne of evil, too cunning to be fathomed, too deadly to be known. These are the basis of this award-winning first entry in the fascinating Kushiel's Legacy series.

A wonderful blend of history and fantasy, where myth becomes reality and kingdoms can rise or fall with an indiscreet act or word.
The intricate world of Terre d' Ange in which Phedre no Delany has to navigate is one I will revisit over and over again. It is a wonderful world to get lost in...
