    Summary

    Continuing the story, completing one journey and setting the stage for the cataclysmic showdown with the Merrin on Cytheria. Synopsis; The arrival at Cytheria is complicated by meeting with Melisande, and Sidonie's unique and long-suppressed attitude towards that infamous woman. Phaing's even darker side begins to come out, and soon all are gathered together with Ptolemy Solon.... (SPOILERS) ... during that meeting Merrin puts in his dramatic appearance. Dragon and Dark Elf confront each other directly, and the result would be comical were it not so ugly.
    That evening, without Phaing present, Merrin surrenders himself. Phedre is astonished to see the last piece of the puzzle fall into place- Merrin is not insane, he never was. For 72 years he has been trying to keep HER sane, by distracting her from the loss of her people, her world, and her entire family. "We fought to save our world, we lost." The two of them are the sole survivors. Merrin no longer has the strength for their little game, he gives up hoping for a miracle for Phaing, who's true-name is Sushulana.

    Summary

    See Elua's Nightmare Part I first, or you will be lost here.
    Synopsis; As previously noted, this story is more of a journey into the minds of a couple of very unusual Characters, rather than the places and conflicts they cause. Phaing and her ship have been captured, and is questioned about her past and what her game is here.... (SPOILERS)... and the strange little Dohk Alfar (Dark Elf) is very forthcoming. She and the Dragon are indeed not of this world, for decades she has been following Merrin from world to world, doing her best to thwart him. This Dragon is also a powerful Psychic, and is slowly going insane... and the worst part is that he knows what is happening to him and is powerless to stop it. He is out to build a legacy for himself, one that involves torturing an entire world to death once he finds on that is corrupt enough to suit his twisted purposes.
    Phaing is not chasing Merrin to Terre'D"Ange, she has lured him to this world, in the hope that the deeply caring and involved Gods of this land can cure him, somehow. Failing that, the "Clever Ape" may be their only hope. Phaing's plan had been to trick the Heroes into going to him while she doubled back to face Merrin... whoops.

    Summary

    Told from the viewpoint of the Dauphine Sidonie, this novel kicks off just months after the wedding that ended "Kushiel's Mercy". Four of the sharpest minds and strongest wills in Terre D'Ange are swept up in a whirlwind that will test their problem-solving abilities, and Sidonie will be at the forefront. Outwardly willful and strong, she inwardly uneasy with the accident of birth that gives her such authority, and the dreadful responsibility that goes with it.
    This work only exists thanks to the imagination and excellence of Jaqueline Carey. What you have here is naught but my tribute to the Best of all possible Worlds.

    Summary

    When they played together, Joscelin learned more about Alcuin than he could ever hope to through conversation. He was continually frustrated early in their game, before he came to know that Alcuin's taciturn face belied a mind as sharp and sneaky as Phèdre's own; they, after all, had the same teacher.

    Summary

    The Dark Castle holds a collection of priceless artefacts, all well protected. What better a place to store knowledge so powerful it dare not be used nor destroyed?

    When Phedre and Joscelin seek to make a deal, the anguissette can't help but try to insert Blessed Elua's precept into the lives of Rumplestiltskin and his young caretaker.

    "Love as thou wilt" has never before been such a terrifying proposal.

    Summary

    She can never stop being an anguisette, no matter how much she had cursed Kushiel, cursed every god including Blessed Elua Himself when kneeling on the Mahrkagir’s floor. It is a part of her, as much as red-stricken eyes and Delaunay’s teachings. She can no more will it away than she can will stars out of the sky.

    That does not mean that she cannot circumvent it.

    Summary

    “observe,” he says, and his blades blind you as his hands move but you force your eyes open until your sight stings with brightness. “observe,” he says, and sends a knife spinning towards your head, trusting that you will duck.

    Summary

    Ah, and truthfully I did not know what I had done or why I had done it. For if the Name of God could bind an angel, what could it do to one such as Melisande?
