characters in this do not have easy goes at things and suffer for years on end Daughter of blood hit so many of my hot buttons in it, rape, incest, torture, human trafficking, pedophilia and slavery It was dark and disturbing and I couldn t look away or put it down Heir to the Shadows picks up two years after the events of the first book of the series This is still dark but we have moved away from some of the sexual darkness of the first book and we learn that The Blood have other ways to be horrible to each other.Jaenelle remains in a coma in Saetan s care two years after the events of Daughter of Blood Daemon at least was able to tie her back to her body but it has left him vulnerable with cracks of his own and drained Because he doesn t remember the events of that horrible night it is all twisted in his head and he isn t sure if he helped or harmed the girl that will one day become the woman he is meant to be with This worldbuilding in this is really fantastic There are lands in the physical realm, magical realm and the realm of death The tie in between all of the places and how they interact with one another is really amazing and I like the idea of Saetan as a Guardian of the world The Kindred are magical creatures who as legend have it were once normal wolves, dogs, cats, unicorns etc but a dragon flew over the land dropping her scales and giving the world her magic Humans that caught a scale became witches, animals becamesentient with magic of their own and became known as the Kindred I love how much depth there is to the worlds.While sometimes this is a little slow in places I can t say I was ever bored, I really couldn t put this down for the most part as I followed Jaenelle on her journey from the lowest part of her life, to living while blocking the trauma of her past to the final acceptance of all of it on her journey into the futureIt is easier to kill than to heal It is easier to destroy than to preserve It is easier to tear down than to build Those who feed on destructive emotions and ambitions and deny the responsibilities that are the price of wielding power can bring down everything you care for and would protect Be on guard, alwaysThere are so many great characters and so many terrible characters I love to hate that I was captivated by the entire tale Plus seeing Saetan with a household of teenage witches as he tries to mentor Jaenelle was pretty hilarious I m not sure he knew what he was getting into when that little girl showed up on his doorstep seeking magic lessonsI met your daughter recently I asked her if she found it difficult living with your temper She looked genuinely baffled, and said, What temper Saetan stared at her for a moment, then the anger drained away He rubbed the back of his neck, and said dryly, Jaenelle has a unique way of looking at a great many thingsAnne Bishop has woven an intricate tale in a cruel world and I just can t get enough of it With the addition of the Kindred, Lucivar finding his place and Daemon s journey this was a full tale that left me wanting.I can t wait to see what our not so little Jaenelle will do now that she has made her choice Reviewed by Rabid Reads.It took me a full year to build up the courage to listen to HEIR TO THE SHADOWS after being thoroughly traumatized by book 1 I really love Anne Bishop s THE OTHERS series, and I m a firm believer in second chances when it comes to authors, so after twelve months of mental preparation, here we go again It s with a massive sigh of relief that I write this review because A no nightmares B this installment was a vast improvement upon the previous one It was slow paced Reviewed by Rabid Reads.It took me a full year to build up the courage to listen to HEIR TO THE SHADOWS after being

we go again It s with a massive sigh of relief that I write this review because A no nightmares B this installment was a vast improvement upon the previous one It was slow paced, and wasabout the dialogue than the action, but we re definitely getting somewhere.This novel concentrated on Jaenelle s road to recovery after two years in a coma, she must battle her way back to sanity, and then take the necessary steps in order to become the Queen she was meant to be The story followed Angelline from the age of twelve to twenty, so it s best to minimize the number of sessions spent reading this book in order to avoid confusing the timeline Lots of character development takes place, both where the protagonist was concerned as well as the secondaries, and all of the chess pieces were brought to the fore, including the kindred wolves, unicorns dragons Even though THE BLACK JEWELS series now has nine volumes under its wing, it was originally a trilogy, so this installment felt like it was the limbo between books 1 3 which explains its lack of major intrigue By the end of this novel everything was in place for an earth shaking payoff, except the love interest Daemon Sadi was off in cuckoo land, but other than that I was able to better appreciate Bishop s Dark Fantasy because this story was minus the truly heinous tidbits however that doesn t mean that the author dons kid gloves Every character is still fair game.John Sharian s narration didn t creep me out nearly as much as it did in DAUGHTER OF THE BLOOD I still question the producer s decision to go with a male voice for this series, but Angelline s entourage is a sausage fest, so with thedisturbing aspects behind us, he s growing on me Sharian s ominous tone actually worked to his advantage when he mimicked Jaenelle s midnight voice , and I thought that he was reasonably adept at keeping the plethora of personas separate, although he does goof on occasion, and slips into his staple timbre when he shouldn t.HEIR TO THE SHADOWS was almost good I m eager for Anne Bishop to bring it home with QUEEN OF THE DARKNESS 3.5 stars SoI have mixed thoughts about this trilogy, not the least of which it s kind of hard to take seriously a world where hot men are controlled by penis rings BUTI still like it This trilogy seems to me to be the ultimate teenage girl s fantasy Everything is about this main character and her growing up to be the savior of the world, all the men are safe and doting controlled by penis rings if they re super hot, lol , older women are the ones who are evil and jealous and want to control

apenetrative mind could glean a lot from THAT SAID I loved the first book, I felt like the mystery of the main character was a BIT infantilized in this one, she seemed waykiddie towards the last half of the book, but it s a great continuation that lightens the world somewhat from the VERY dark first one, and I enjoyed it no less After the events in Daughter of the Blood, Jaenelle has been in a coma for two years She awakens in the safety of her adopted father s keep and her physical and mental healing begin as well Slowly, she is coming back to life and before you know it, she is a teenager Jaenelle is coming into her powers and is learning how to use them She is also forging alliances with her friends, the Kindred and starting her own coven without no one realizing it Yet, she s marked

friends, the Kindred and starting her own coven without no one realizing it Yet, she s marked by that terrible night at the altar Her mind was fragmented by the attack and some memories are too painful to remember them Another one who s scarred after that night at the altar was Daemon His mind became fragile after trying to help Jaenelle and failing A confrontation with Lucivar only pushes him farther to the edge of madness Lucifer has lost faith in his freedom and is ready to give up until someone helps him take a different path.Of course, the two evil women, Dorothea and Hekatah continue to fabricate schemes to damage all of them Jaenelle, Daemon, and Lucivar would suffer through many of their plots It baffles me that none of the three and or Saetan have killed them Of course, if they did, there wouldn t be a story.Heir to Shadows was less bloody and traumatizing than its predecessor There was plenty of character development and some very humorous parts The huge drawback was having Jaenelle and Daemon separated for most of the book, it just wasn t much fun Cliffhanger No3 5 FangsMrsLeif s Two Fangs About It Facebook Twitter Instagram 2.5 rounded upThis was nowhere near as good as the first book Still, there s just something about Bishop s writing that I find comfortable, which is similar to how I feel about Patricia Briggs s books That being said, the

m going to read the third book any time soon I don t feel the urgency to find out what will happen next but I know someday I ll continue Omg this series is just one big clusterf ck I mean honestly, this book had SO MUCH going on and because of that, the story was all over the place It was hard to concentrate, so I lost interest real fast There were so many loose ends and things weren t consistent and all the main characters were acting so different in this book compared to how they were in Book 1 Saetan was a bumbling idiot in this book You re the dark lord How are ppl able to

letting ppl walk all over you Jaenelle was still annoying because since she doesn t have a direct pov it s hard for me to understand her character She has no personality She s just this person that can do no wrong and that s not really entertaining to read about New storylines kept getting introduced Now there s talking animals in the mix Hey, don t get me wrong, I like UF s with talking animals shape shifters etc, but there s too many fantasy elements in this series already for me to keep up with I just wanted to know what was happening with Daemon and Lucivar I kept hoping Daemon and Jaenelle would finally reunite at some point but nothing happened So now I have to read Book 3 to know what happens with them but I don t feel like reading another 400 pages of nonsense How does this series have such a high rating what am I not getting Reread 9 6 7 17First read 4 3 5 17This book was so SO GOOD I love these characters so much I missed Daemon through a lot of it, but I also

prior book, hung out with her friends, and learned how to hone her craft yawn Hekatah hatched a few desperate attempts evil plans to destroy Jaenelle s chances of coming into power as a queen Hekatah was spoken about as if she was some extremely deceptive, manipulative person Her actions indicated that she attempted to be those things but failed Her plans were weak and desperate nor did they involve much intelligence or plotting She doesn t stand a chance Frankly I wish she d been killed off because I don t want to waste my time reading about her since she is insignificant.Lucivar s role in the first book was small His role in this was much bigger, but he went from being interesting, intelligent, and strong to a fool He followed Jaenelle around like a lost puppy, and I desperately wish she would have told him to get lost Also he is one or two thousand years old but he acted like a teenager.The majority of this was told from Saetan s perspective since Jaenelle was with him most of the time He is the lamest character ever Seriously grow some fucking balls Saetan He is long lived and the High Lord of Hell, so stop acting like some driveling idiot Saetan should be a bad ass, but instead he is the kindest, fairest ruler of them all He is so intent on following the rules that he sacrificed his two sons to horrible fates all because of protocol Instead of being a BAMF all Saetan did was think about Jaenelle to the degree that he is blind to anything else going on in his realm including threats to Jaenelle He is a horrible leader He would be a loyal friend but is way too weak to be an effective leader He s also a shitty father to Jaenelle He took great care of her but didn t give her any direction When she wanted something to be a certain way, she got her way Daemon was barely in this, and he is the most interesting character in the series by far His absence deeply impacted the book and not in a good way There was a point to it, but so many other inconsequential things didn t need to be focused on in his absence He sacrificed almost everything for Jaenelle in Daughter of the Blood, but did anybody give a shit about what he sacrificed for her Nooooooo He s expendable, but apparently Jaenelle is not She was the only one that cared about him at all, but she failed to show the outrage I wanted to see from her.I m still going to read the next one, but my expectations aren t as high as they were when I started this book Librarian s note See alternate cover for this edition hereEnough time has passed for the young girl Jaenelle, heir to the
