I finished reading queen of the darkness in two days. I lovedthe first half of the book, and some of the second half but i hatedthe part just before the end. I couldn't believe that Jaenelle could ask them to sacrifice that much, but at least she did too. For the most part, Daemon was almost always great, except there were a few places where he seemed to be out of character, eg. those times when he was afraid of Lucivar and when he fainted. That didn't sound like him to me. Lucivar was great! His whole family is great. Jaenelle, sometimes she doesn't seem like the Jaenelle that was in the first two books, she's changed a lot when it comes to ruling and killing these days. Does anyone else think that the woman on the cover looks a little to old to be twenty five? Surreal is the best; she's funny and she's always picking fights with the guys in the family, for after an upset with her name, she's become family. Chaosti, Khardeen and Aaron were mentioned a lot in this book compared to the other two and we learn what happened to them, ie marriage, children etc. but there are some people that we just don't see any more, except for one line appearences, which was really confusing and annoying. There are so many new people and they're not described enough for people to remember them by. One thing i don't understand fully is the ending, and since i can't say what happened here, if anyone could fill me in on exactly what they thought happened i'd be grateful. All in all, i loved this book, bar the end.
