In the first novel in New York Times bestselling author Anne Bishop’s beloved Black Jewels Trilogy, a race of witches and warlocks whose power is channeled through magical jewels will meet their once and future queen…

And so begins a ruthless game of politics and intrigue, magic and betrayal, where the weapons are hate and love—and the prize could be terrible beyond imagining...

The first book in my favourite series of all time. First time through might be a bit confusing, as this book builds heavily on the world, but it's just fantastic. The series just keeps getting better as you continue through all of the books.
