I’ve decided to pimp my latest book review that is now live on my book blog Another World. Today the book is the dark fantasy novel, Daughter of the Blood, the first book of The Black Jewels Trilogy by Anne Bishop; feel free to go and check out my in depth thoughts on what is a very strange tale by clicking THIS LINK. I awarded the book a score of 4 out of 5 which might come as I surprise when I mention that the first time I read it (a little over a decade ago) I didn’t like it at all. Admittedly, this had a lot to do with the fact I had no idea what was going on, principally because I had been led to believe it was an urban fantasy (which it most certainly isn’t) but also because I had never read anything quite so bizarre before.
I’m pleased that I took a chance to re-read it last month because it was definitely well worth the time. I am now looking forward to reading the second book of the trilogy. Please leave a comment either below or at Another World (if you decide to check out the review) if you have read Anne Bishop’s novel. I’d love to read other people’s opinions of it as I know that it is a very polarising book on account of its dark themes.
