Pressestimmen

Praise for Shalador’s Lady

“Fans of the long running Black Jewels saga will relish this terrific entry.”—Genre Go Round Reviews
 
“A lavishly detailed, exotic background...brings to mind the sensual fiction of Tanith Lee and Storm Constantine and should appeal to fans of dynastic fantasy.”—Library Journal
 
“The Black Jewels novels are seductive—once you start, you just cannot stop reading...Shalador’s Lady takes you on an emotional journey...You must read this fantasy novel.”—Romance Reviews Today

“Shares many of the same themes of trauma, survival, and the importance of doing what is right [with The Shadow Queen]. Bishop handles these difficult subjects with a good deal of grace and sensitivity and, as always, with compelling characterization.”—RT Book Reviews

Kurzbeschreibung

Return to New York Times bestselling author Anne Bishop’s world of the Black Jewels—where a Queen has emerged from the shadows to bring hope to an impoverished people…
 
For years the Shalador people suffered the cruelties of the corrupt Queens who ruled them, punishing those who dared show defiance, and forcing many more into hiding. And even though the refugees have found sanctuary in Dena Nehele, they have never been able to call it home.
 
Now that Dena Nehele has been cleansed of tainted Blood, the Rose-Jeweled Queen, Lady Cassidy, knows that restoring the land will require all her heart and courage as she summons the untested power within her, a power capable of consuming her if she cannot control it.
 
And even if Lady Cassidy survives her trial by fire, other dangers await. For the Black Widows see visions within their tangled webs that something is coming that will change the land—and Lady Cassidy—forever...

The Shadow Queen und SHALADOR'S LADY bilden einen zusammenhängenden Handlungsbogen, der von den Nachwirkungen des Hexen Sturms und der Aufbauarbeit in Tereille erzählt. Im Zentrum der Geschichte steht die unglückliche Königin Cassidy, die ihren Thron an eine jüngere, hübschere Königin verloren hat und einen Neubeginn in Dena Nehelee wagt. Doch nicht alle Krieger Prinzen sind von ihr begeistert. In SHALADOR'S LADY folgt ihr ihre alte Rivalin nach, um Cassidy auch diesen Thron streitig zu machen. Daneben kommt es immer wieder zu Gastauftritten der SaDiablo Familie.

Bei The Shadow Queen war ich noch überzeugt, dass in dieser Geschichte Potential steckt. Zwischen der unsicheren Königin und dem verbitterten Krieger Prinzen Theran bestand echtes Konfliktpotential. Ich konnte sowohl Cassidys als auch Therans Position nachvollziehen - ihre Schmerzen und Unsicherheiten wirkten (beinahe) real. Da störte es mich kaum, dass der Handlungsbogen einfach war und oft in Melodrama und künstlicher Süße versank.
So ging ich mit Zuversicht, aber ohne überhöhte Erwartungen an SHALADOR'S LADY heran. Es bot sich das übliche Bild. Die "guten" Frauen gärtnern, üben sich im gütig sein und kommandieren ihre Männer herum, während diese ihre Frauen in Watte einpacken wollen, dafür eines über den Schädel gezogen bekommen und dabei ziemlich verdutzt aus der Wäsche schauen. Natürlich verfallen die Männer immer wieder in Rage oder "croonen" gefährlich.

"The Black Jewels Trilogy" ist mein absolutes Lieblingsbuch, weil ich bis dato nichts Vergleichbares gelesen hatte. Gierig verschlang ich auch die anderen Folgebände und war auch mit jedem Einzelnen sehr zufrieden, weil ich mich einfach sehr gerne in der Welt der Juwelen wiederfand.
Logischerweise kaufte ich mir auch "Shalador's Lady" und mochte es. Doch ich braucht länger um es zu lesen, von verschlingen war keine Rede. Es war schön zu lesen.

Kurz zur Geschichte:
Cassidy und ihr erster Zirkel geraten mit Theran aneinander aufgrund einer Königin namens Kermilla. Für Saetan, Daemon und Lucivar fällt diese in die Kategorie "Bitch"(sagt ja eigentlich alles). Das führt zu einigen Problemen, der Hof zieht um und die Geschichte entwickelt sich in eine interessante Richtung. Allerdings werden die Mitglieder des Dark Courts nur wenig erwähnt und bleiben sehr passiv. Ausserdem gehen Theran und Kermilla einem unheimlich auf die Nerven, während meiner Meinung nach von Cassidy und Co nicht ausführlich genug berichtet wird und sich Bishop scheinbar nicht mehr gerne an tiefere Gefühlsschichten und Erzählstränge wagt.

Ein wenig muss ich meiner Vorrednerin zustimmen:
Es ist immer das gleiche Konzept nach dem Anne Bishop die Guten und die Bösen miteinander konfrontiert. Während es in den ersten drei Büchern sehr intensiv und sorgfältig ausgearbeitet wurde, ist es inzwischen wohl ein standardisiertes Schema. Das ist sehr schade, denn mit den Charakterern könnte man soviel mehr machen und sie stärker, interessanter und tiefer gestalten.

Ich hatte eine Menge Spass, denn ich bin ein leidenschaftlicher Fan der Juwelen. Wem es nicht so geht, oder wer sparen möchte, sollte es vielleicht ebenfalls wie meine Vorrednerin machen und es sich erstmal ausleihen.

Well done, Anne Bishop. I really love the series and this book was again a great highlight. Action, horror, romance, fun and fantasy in one book, that’s seldom. But the author knows how to involve so much different topics and emotions in one book without overloading the reader. I was laughing, smiling, deep touched, scared, angry….
The story is about Cassidy and her court again like in the book before. Cassidy haven’t it easy in this book but she stay strong with the help of Gray and her court and so she evolve to a strong and good queen. She have to do some important decisions with high impact regarding her country. But she did very well :-)
Gray evolve to a Warlord Prince with a strong character in this book and the transformation was really impressive. Well known character like Jaenelle, Saetan, Lucivar, Rhanon, Theran, Talon, Vae… are part of this book and story, too. The funny scelties plays a bigger role for Cassidy’s court in this book and I had a lot to laugh because of their funny behavior.
The bitch Kermilla cause Cassidy a lot of trouble and stress and I was happy to see, that she gets what she deserves. Yes, everything has its price and Kermilla learned this very hard in this book.

Annoying was the oversensitive reaction of the Warlord Princes. As soon as a customer rang the door, the rose to the killing edge. Well, that’s a little bit too much and it was really nerved.

But all in all it was a great book and I’m looking forward to the next one.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fantastic Book!!! 31. Dezember 2016
Von O'Doherty Family - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Love all of the Black Jewel Series, I actually purchased them at this time for my sister as a Christmas gift. My sister had read the first 3 but hadn't had the opportunity to read any of the others so I purchased the entire series for her. She loved the first 3, I'm sure this one will be no different. These books are definitely not for the kindhearted and I would describe them as dark and disturbing for most of the series, they can be graphic, horrifying, fantastic, whimsical, saddening and much much more. I have found myself actually laughing out loud, and crying so hard I had to put them away for a while. I've read and reread them probably close to 10 times and can say that I feel they blow most other writers and writing styles out of the water. Everyone is all about 50 Shades of Gray for its sexual content and heat but, in my opinion, nothing beats these books in that aspect as well as many others, I find myself wishing I could step through the pages and live in their world. These books are definitely something you read with an open mind and they are by no means written for children. Shalador's Lady is a milder book in the series because the other books focus on the hardship of the society that Anne Bishop created when she wrote them. I find I enjoy this book most for how Cassidy and Gray grow in their relationship.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Nice entry to the Black Jewels series 2. März 2010
Von Shala Kerrigan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I'm sure that some fans of the original trilogy won't agree with me, but this entry in the Black Jewels world is one of my favorites.
Best for someone who has been reading the series all along and isn't expecting another Queen of the Darkness (Black Jewels, Book 3).A lot of the story involves old familiar characters and the world building that was done so well in the first 3 books and the dark intense romance elements aren't in this one. The romance in this book is pretty sweet actually.
In QotD, Saetan, patriarch of the loosely formed family told Janelle's grandmother that a queen doesn't need to be strong to hold a territory, that her court could be her strength. But the first 6 books in the series were all about very strong witches. Then came The Shadow Queen: A Black Jewels Novel which featured a plain spoken, plain faced queen who was handpicked to try to repair a badly damaged land. Not powerful, she proved a disappointment to the man who was descended from the last good queen. She does form a court in that book, people who believe in her, her strength and honor. This is the sequel to that book. Picking up where the last book left off, Cassie has a court that almost all believes in her and she's fallen in love.
Then the woman who she has a lot of history with comes into the story, forcing her new court to make decisions, forcing her into deciding how hard she's willing to fight for her new land.
There are a lot of guest appearances from favorite characters in the previous books and some of those appearances look a lot like setting the stage for more books about them. Ms. Bishop breaks out of some ruts by not having all the intensity in the romance that's been in the past books and having characters who aren't super powerful, but like most of her Black Jewels books, the antagonist is a spoiled greedy woman who sours the people around her. I think I'd like to see stronger and more variation in villains from her in these books. I enjoy this series very much and will get the next book in it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Stayed up late to finish! 26. März 2015
Von H. Grove (errantdreams) - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I absolutely love Shalador’s Lady. The characters are, as always in Anne Bishop books, terribly fun. She has created a world with built-in reasons for people to be high-tempered, dangerous, and larger than life, and she wields that milieu with style. I enjoy Cassidy as a character. For a brief time I felt a little frustrated with her inability to see past what happened with her last court to the loyal court she has now, but to be honest she has been sufficiently scarred by her past experiences that it makes sense for her to be blind to certain details. I also like watching Gray develop–he starts out as a broken man with a stunted emotional development, but in wanting to be good for Cassidy he starts putting the pieces of his life back together. It’s so sweet to watch. (I cried.)

The hilarity in this volume (and some of the darkness as well) comes from the introduction of a bunch of Scelties (a ‘kindred’ race of dogs, who are considered to be of the Blood and who have the same range of powers as the human Blood, including the ability to speak mind-to-mind with others). An entire dozen comes to Cassidy’s relocated home and decides to settle in. They range from a small, over-excited mutt to a rather scary adult. While they’re often used for comic relief, they also instigate at least one of the darker moments of the book. (Additional tears may have been shed.)

There are plenty of ups and downs, laughs and bloodshed, romances and enmities. The plot and events provide plenty of tension–I stayed up late to finish the book because I couldn’t put it down. Frankly I read so many books that this doesn’t happen often any more. I also liked that Kermilla shows how thin the line can be between a Queen who’s spoiled, selfish, and narcissistic, and a Queen who’s evil.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Great addition. 3. Januar 2011
Von Jabberwock Bandersnatch - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Out of all the Black Jewels series, this is the best. The Invisible Ring was nothing but a tl;dr explanation of the spell Jaenelle used in Queen of the Darkness, and every installment after that felt too fanficcy. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed reading every page that has been added to the original Trilogy, but none of the succeeding Black Jewels books after the 3rd one did the Trilogy any justice.

Surreal's character went from supposed badass independent assassin-whore to ex-assassin-whore who crumbles under the influence of dark-jeweled males. Saetan's character got too fluffy so he made a half-hearted attempt to reclaim his badassness in Shalador's Lady by slipping into the Twisted Kingdom and scaring his children; it felt forced.

I felt like Anne Bishop didn't know when or how to let go of the characters. The story had reached the point where they were finished battling The Big Bad and I just wanted to safely herd them into a box labeled happily ever after and wish Anne would let the readers' imagination take over. Because, honestly, not every major thing that happens or every single interesting moment of their lives need to be written.

Shadow Queen was a push in the right direction by introducing new characters and going back to rebuild in Terreille. Though, Anne still couldn't let go of the SaDiablo Family and the novel felt more SaDiablo-centric with Cassidy's court as side characters.

This installment still didn't feel like Anne Bishop could let go of the SaDiablos and they still had a lot of (unnecessary) cameos, but this novel out of all the installments had the essence of the original Trilogy. And the beauty of it is that none of these new characters are dark-jeweled or had to battle the Big Bad to make it as Epic as the Trilogy. Cassidy just had to overcome greed and find inner strength to help her rebuild what was destroyed by the Big Bad before.

I loved it.

I hope Anne takes the series in this direction, if she decides to add more to it. I love the SaDiablo family and all, but I think it's time for Anne to let go of that family while they're still at a good point, and focus on other, BETTER things like she did with Cassidy in this novel.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Favorite book of all time! 13. August 2016
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This is, hands down, my favorite book that I've ever read. I love the characters: i love Gray, i love Cassie, i love to hate Kermilla. I love the Scelties! They add so much humor.
I also really love that the characters in the Shadow Queen and this book are more "real" than previous installments of the Black Jewels series, due to the "darker" jewels actually being rare... for example, an Opal jewel is only mentioned three times... and aside from two other characters, Opal is the darkest jewel mentioned.
Anne Bishop has fantastic character development and perspective. You can tell which character the chapter takes place for just by use of her language and word choice.

Even if you don't read the other books is the Jewels series, i highly recommend this offshoot.
(The Invisible Ring, The Shadow Queen, Shalador's Lady)
