A Black Jewels BookBook - 2011
From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
This group of stories about the realm of the Black Jewels novels has two stories set between "Tangled Webs" and "The Shadow Queen". One of those stories deals with how Tersa adopted her 'winged boy' and how the family plans to celebrate Winsol in the coming years, with the boys spending time with their mother and Jaenelle spending time with her 'papa'. The second story is about Surreal and Ranier's time at Ebon Rih, and Falonar getting some very sharp lessons in warriors to fear and aristo families to be very wary of. Chaosti's reaction to treachery is something to behold.
The next two stories take place in near and far futures. One deals with Sylvia and her marriage to Saetan, which makes her the stepmother of Lucivar and Daemon, and gives Daemon control over her Baron and Mikal who are still alive, even though Sylvia is not. The last story is about that time that Surreal refers to in "Shalador's Lady" when the hourglass in Daemon's head runs out, and the very special healing web that Jaenelle entrusts to the spinners activates. Daemon does finally heal from having his heart ripped out and his daughter by his second wife is going to be a real handful, especially since The Song In The Darkness is insuring that the little girl has all sorts of furry companions that are all descended from Jaenelle's furry friends.

No, in it."
