I’m reviewing Shalador’s Lady by Anne Bishop at Smexy Books


Shalador's Lady (The Black Jewels, #8)


Favorite Quote: “It is better to break you own heart then to break your honor.”

Shalador's Lady by Anne Bishop is the 8th book in her Black Jewels series. It is also the sequel to her 7th book, The Shadow Queen. I adore the Black Jewels series. A deliciously dark and traumatic series that celebrates the triumph of evil. Unequivocal world building sustained by dramatic and inspiring characters has gained this series it’s own keeper shelf. I would not recommend reading these out of order. The arc carries over and feeds itself through each book.

In Shalador’s Lady we see Lady Cassidy growing into herself and slowing bringing life back to a land and the people of Dena Nehale; destroyed by the previous Queens. When an enemy from Cassie’s past returns to try and once again to stake a claim on Cassie’s court, Cassie will have to fight for the land, the people, and her love to survive.
