After suffering nine years of torment as a slave, he murdered his owner and escaped?only to be caught and sold into slavery once again. The notorious queen who has purchased him, known as the Gray Lady, may not be what she seems. Soon, Jared faces a difficult choice: his freedom, or his honor.

4 Stars

Well what can I say that I haven’t said about the World of the Blood, that I haven’t said yet.

Hm … nope this book is just as awesome and as addicting as the other three main Black Jewels books.

I was actually glad to see a bit of the past (before Jaenelle) of the Blood and how Dorothea slowly corrupted all of Terreille. And she’s no less vicious in this one as she was in the main books. I loved Jared, he’s such a tormented soul and the fact that Daemon considers him a friend, just makes me love him more, well him and Blaed.

So you guessed it, the story is about a Red-Jeweled Warlord named Jared, who’s been a pleasure slave since adulthood and after killing a Queen, he’s sent to slave auctions destined to go to the salt mines of Pruul. But Jared has no intentions of going to the salt mines, until he’s had the chance to see his mother and apologize to her for his behaviour, several years before. Of course all his plans fall into ruin when he’s bought by the feared Gray Lady, the only one who still stands against Dorothea and her poisonous influence from reaching Dena Nehele.

I won’t go any further into the story, becuase that will ruin the book for future readers. But gosh I do love this story, I love Lia, Thera, Blaed and Jared. Lia and Jared fit so well together even when they argue with each other and Thera, ho boy she’s not the kind of woman you’d want to piss off. And Blaed, the young Warlord Prince is a perfect match for her, in every way. And of course I hate Dorothea, but she’s still a magnificent piece of work, as is her Master of the Guard Lord Krelis, (what a bastard!).

So without further ado, my rating for this books is 4 stars. Because it totally deserves it!
