New York Times bestselling author Anne Bishop's Black Jewels novels have enthralled readers and critics alike. Now, in Twilight's Dawn, Bishop returns to the Blood realm with four captivating novellas: Winsol Gifts, Shades of Honor, Family, and The High Lord's Daughter.
From the Paperback edition.
Bestseller Bishop fills out her popular Black Jewels dark fantasy universe (Daughter of the Blood, etc.) with this entertaining novella collection. Daemon Sadi, a black-jeweled Warlord Prince, deals with friends, family, and holiday celebrations in "Winsol Gifts," while his brother, Lucivar Yaslana, has to thwart a traitor and his deadly trap in the richly entertaining "Shades of Honor." A mother and her sons are threatened by a dangerous, twisted enemy in "Family," while Daemon becomes a father and finds a new lease on life and love in "The High Lord's Daughter." Fans of the series will enjoy revisiting some favorite characters and mourn the loss of others; new readers may be initially confused by the myriad names and titles, but Bishop's accessible writing style and interesting world-building will soon draw them into her web.

The best book series I've ever read.
This book series is so addictive that I've read all of the main story books over 6 times each. The character of daemon and lucivar are so original and the brotherly bond is touching 11/10
***Spoiler Alert! If you loved the first 3 books, don't read this one. The High Lord of Hell is NOT Saetan, and This Janelle, is NOT Daeman's wife. I prefer happier endings. I have enough reality in my own world.
A collection of stories, as with all of the Black Jewel's books they are beautifully written and like the other reviewers, I wish not to ruin the ending but...if I could go back I would read all the short stories up until the last one. For me it was too painful, I have never connected with a character as much as I have with the main character, Jaenelle Angelline, and I wished to have read that her legacy carried on in a bit of a...different way. Still a beautiful book and absolutely worth reading.
