Erotic Literature. Fantasy. Fiction. Literature. The land of Terre d'Ange is a place of unsurpassed 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 woman pricked by Kushiel's Dart, chosen to forever experience pain and pleasure as one. Her path has been strange and dangerous, and through it all the devoted swordsman Joscelin has been at her side. Her very nature is a torturous thing for them both, but he is sworn to her and he has never violated his vow: to protect and serve. But Phèdre's plans put Joscelin's pledge to the test, for she has never forgotten her childhood friend Hyacinthe. She has spent ten long years searching for the key to free him from his eternal indenture, a bargain he struck with the gods-to take Phèdre's place as a sacrifice and save a nation. Phèdre cannot forgive-herself or the gods. She is determined to seize one last hope to redeem her friend, even if it means her death. The search will bring Phèdre and Joscelin across the world, to distant courts where madness reigns and souls are currency, and down a fabled river to a land forgotten by most of the world. And to a power so mighty that none dare spe… (mais)

    Naamah's Kiss por Jacqueline Carey (mollishka)
    mollishka: Naamah's Kiss is much more in the style of the first Kushiel trilogy than the second Kushiel trilogy is. I'd recommend reading Kushiel's Justice for some background first (Kushiel's Scion is totally skippable) and then diving into the delicious new Naamah's Kiss.… (mais)

Oh this book had me feeling all the feels! I am so in love with this world and I feel this book was an excellent end to Phedre's narration. This has been one of the best book series I have ever read - I can't believe I am just coming to discover the treasure that is Jacqueline Carey ( )

These books, sweet baby jesus. If the first book was just totally whoa this book just totally destroyed me. It goes in so many directions and twists around so many times, that it was more like 2 or 3 books in one.

This particular book ventures far beyond the alt-Europe setting into alt-Africa and alt-Middle East. It was very interesting to see the subtle twists on those myriad cultures. There were quite a few bits when they are in Darsanga that made me feel less than well, but I think that Phèdre having to face those aspects of her desires again made me feel like I really had to read those parts, even when I really wanted to skim past them. Still, I loved Phèdre and Joscelin (even though Joscelin was a little too much the Perfect Companion in this one). And Imriel, I am feeling a little trepidation about his books, but I loved him too.

Overall, a really strong trilogy, with a bittersweet but perfect ending. I'm going to take a break before I start in on Imriel's books, because this one was pretty dark and I need some sunshine books. ( )

Het was al een lange tijd geleden dat ik deel 1 en 2 in deze serie las. En nu ik deel 3 uit heb, snap ik niet goed waarom ik zo lang heb gewacht om er aan te beginnen. Hoewel het daardoor wel even duurde voor ik er weer helemaal inzat. Want ik wist natuurlijk niet meer precies waarover het allemaal ging.
Toen ik er eenmaal goed inzat ging het ook snel, deze dikkerd. Ik wil niet veel over het verhaal vertellen want ik wil niet spoileren, maar ik vond het af en toe té wreed en te gewelddadig, maar ook prachtig en intrigerend tegelijk geschreven. Phèdre moet zoveel doorstaan om haar doel te bereiken. Maar gelukkig heeft ze Joscelin aan haar zijde en krijgt ze hulp uit onverwachte hoeken.

Absoluut een aanrader ( )

A satisfying conclusion to a great trilogy. About 100 pages of painfully depressing imprisonment nearly bogged down the middle, but I really do think it was necessary for the emotional depth that Carey likes in her books.

Lots of twists and turns, but enough of a HEA to make me smile. ( )
