Shalador's Lady

You all know how much I love Anne Bishop's Black Jewels world. Shalador's Lady was no exception. I had the chance to read it early and pretty much inhaled it. It's now out, so go forth and check out the yummy book goodness.

(If you haven't read the series previously, I would strongly suggest beginning with the very first book, Daughter of the Blood. Trust me, you'll enjoy the world so much more.)

Also, Dear Author is currently running an Ace/Roc Giveaway, which includes copies of Shalador's Lady as well as books by several other awesome authors, so don't forget to enter!

You are so my kind of author! I so love her Black Jewel books. It's been seven + years since I first read the books. My good friend RJ loaned me the three which I consumed in four days and then went out to buy my own copy.

I recently got caught up on the series in January by reading Tangled Web and The Shadow Queen. It was like being reacquainted with long lost friends (and I dunno about you but I giggled about Lucivar's threat to get his father to calm down... his son and the library)

But yeah Daemon is the ultimate favorite of mine (he's so damn sexy and dangerous. Mmm Black Widows). Daemon and Lucivar is ultimately funny. Surreal is also a neat character.

I just got back from the library and putting a hold on Shalador Lady since I have a strict "No buying hardback" rule.

I love Shalador's Lady, it's definitely a great book and I've been trying to ration it out but I finished it last night and had amazing dreams, haha. Ahh, I'm already trying to see if another Black Jewel book is planned--I hope so!

Thank you for talking about all the different authors that you like on here,some of them I would never have found. I had no idea that Anne Bishop existed until I saw a post on here about one of her books (now I have practically all of her books):)

I preordered Shalador's Lady and I am still waiting for the book to be delivered. I hope I get it today. I can't wait - I just reread The Shadow Queen. I hope it is as good.

I also do not usually buy hardback books, usually wait for the library to get them. However, I love this series, and cannot wait.

I'm on the library hold list, patiently waiting :)

Oh, I simply couldn't put this book down... eight hours after I received it from the library, I had no more left to read! Now I have this feeling that I will be re-reading the Black Jewels trilogy yet again! Oh, addiction!

OMG this is the best!!
I'm a fan of your worlds (both the psy-changeling's and the archangel's), and you're a fan of Anne Bishop who I absolutely adore!
I was doing a search on Anne Bishop's newest book Shalador's Lady and what should pop up your blog. LOL.
I adore the intricate world of the blood, and I love seeing the old cast from the Black Jewels trilogy.
I got my hands on the Shalador's Lady asap and I've already read it cover to cover twice. (and I'm currently rereading the Shadow Queen to reacquiaint myself with the first few weeks of Cassidy in Dena Nehele).

To you and all the authors out there...I love you guys!!
I have an addiction, and it's to good stories. I wouldn't survive a day without you awesome ladies and gents. >.<
