Jacqueline Carey has done it again. She is the best fantasy author I have read to date - loved it. Can't wait for the rest of the series-move over George R.R. Martin-Jacqueline Careys books have it all, drama, adventure, eroticism, and a fabulous story. Put it on the top of your list if you are a fantasy lover!!

"Staff Pick" by ,

This is the fourth in the Kushiel's Legacy series. I have loved all of these books. Ms. Carey is a master storyteller, directing her characters through a plot so fascinating that you can't stop reading. She exquisitely weaves the themes of war, love, peace, elements of sadism and masochism, angel lore, and the motto "Love as thou Wilt" into the fabric of the story. If you like epic fantasy you will enjoy these books. (Also recommended by George R. R. Martin on his website under: What I am reading now.)

"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "The magnificent fourth book in Carey's Kushiel's Legacy series marks the start of a new trilogy set in Terre d'Ange, the author's reimagined Renaissance world. The story picks up where volume three, Kushiel's Avator (2003), left off, though Imriel n Montrve de la Courcel, a prince of the blood, now narrates in place of the unforgettable heroine of the previous books, Phdre n Delauney. As a boy, Imriel is abandoned by his treasonous parents and subjected to terrible indignities by pirates. Later rescued and adopted by Phdre, he grows into a position of authority and learns many skills, including sexual prowess. He has a torrid affair with a married woman, and finally survives a terrible siege at a walled city he courageously defends. The specter of Imriel's sinister, absent mother, Melisande Shahrizai, looms over the action. Credible and gripping, this is heroic fantasy at its finest. (June)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
"Review" by , "Intelligent, sexy, heartbreakingly human, Carey at her intoxicating best."
"Review" by , "[Carey's] exotic alternate earth, set in a Renaissance-like time of cultural flowering and sensual gratification, provides a lush backdrop for a cast of compelling and fascinating characters."
"Review" by , "...skillfully rendered, sensual and thoroughly engrossing."
"Synopsis" by , Imriel de la Courcel's birth parents are history's most reviled traitors, but his adoptive parents, the Comtesse Phedre and the warrior-priest Joscelin, are Terre d'Ange's greatest champions. Stolen, tortured and enslaved as a young boy, Imriel is now a Prince of the Blood; third in line for the throne in a land that revels in art, beauty and desire. It is a court steeped in deeply laid conspiracies...and there are many who would see the young prince dead. Some despise him out of hatred for his mother, Melisande, who nearly destroyed the entire realm in her quest for power. Others because they fear he has inherited his mother's irresistible allure...and her dangerous gifts. As he comes of age, plagued by unwanted desires, Imriel shares their fears. When a simple act of friendship traps Imriel in a besieged city where the infamous Melisande is worshiped as a goddess and where a dead man leads an army, the Prince must face his greatest test: to find his true self.
