Daughter of the Blood
Heir to the Shadows
Queen of the Darkness
For the more mature readers – there’s nothing really graphic, but I would have a hard time applying a rating to them (PG, PG-13, R… can’t decide). The magic wielder’s power is tied to the color of the jewel they wear. And it’s a world where Sataan is a father figure. Definitely worth the price! I re-read these constantly (I alternate between this an Harry Potter!)
One thing that any reader needs to leave at the door when reading these (or in my opinion, almost anything in this genre) is the notion that HUGE age differences matter, in the case of the Queen here and her “mate” there are thousands of years between them – and he even meets her when she is a young girl (no pedophilia, but again, definitely a big gap between them). And it’s great to see a female lead/hero in this genre too – someone who doesn’t need to be “saved” but saves others. Love Ms Bishop’s stuff. And the collateral stories are very good too!
