Definitely a different type of dark fantasy than I am used to reading. I hesitate to say it's about witches because it's not your typical black witch with a cauldron and a cat running around, but none the less it is an interesting imagining of witches. And not just witches but several different types of dark fantasy archetypes as well! The first book over all is amazing-- although sad and tragic-- but the world building and character development is what hooked me. Onto book 2!

Terrible writing. Truly awful. The story may have had potential, but the writing absolutely killed it.

Fantastically written account of a living history, painting vivid images upon your memory with vibrant characters.

Captivating fast paced full of action, adventure, mystery, living folklore, romance, intrigue, and such humorously exhibited quirks make each character leap from the page.

Above all else, I was left with a supreme belief that love in all its glorious and terrifying forms can inspire events that spiral from the stars, down in the darkest corners of the abyss.

An addicting and fun read in a world that is similar to the structure we have and yet totally different. Can't wait to read the rest.

Only half way through and cant wait to finish! I was instantly hooked. Definitely a Dark fantasy novel though and not for the faint of heart.

This is the first book in the Black Jewels Trilogy/Series of novels and it was fantastic! We meet all the main characters, both good and bad, and the story is gripping and entertaining and I found it impossible to put down once I started it. :)
