Having learned a lesson about thwarting the will of the gods, Imriel and Sidonie publicly confess their affair, only to see the country boil over in turmoil. Younger generations, infatuated by their heart-twisting, star-crossed romance, defend the couple. Many others cannot forget the betrayals of Imriel's mother, Melisande, who plunged their country into a bloody war that cost the lives of their fathers, brothers, and sons.

To quell the unrest, Ysandre, the queen, sets her decree. She will not divide the lovers, yet neither will she acknowledge them. If they marry, Sidonie will be disinherited, losing her claim on the throne. There's only one way they can truly be together. Imriel must perform an act of faith: search the world for his infamous mother and bring her back to Terre d'Ange to be executed for treason.

Facing a terrible choice, Imriel and Sidonie prepare ruefully for another long separation. But when a dark foreign force casts a shadow over Terre d'Ange and all the surrounding countries, their world is turned upside down, alliances of the unlikeliest kind are made, and Imriel and Sidonie learn that the god Elua always puts hearts together apurpose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A true love story Jaqueline Carey is a remarkable writer. This latest instalment in her Kushiel saga is a worthy addition to the legacy. A love story in every sense of the word. The prince follows his love to the ends of the earth to save her from a dark spell that has stolen her will and in saving her saves the country of their birth. They face every kind of trial and hardship fugitive lovers can face: pursuit by the enemy, sacrificing to gain allies, the world and the weather against them. All I can say is that this book was so emotionally evocative I had difficulty reading it at points, yet at the same time could not put it down. Pick up Kushiel's Mercy even if you haven't read the rest of the series. References to the past are easy to follow and comprehend, and you won't miss out on a wonderful story.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from a surprising sequel Probably my favorite Kushiel novel since the first 2 volumes. A fast-paced plot with interesting characters that are finally coming into their own, you never know where they're going next or what the next chapter will bring. Some sensuality, lots of action and enough intrigue to keep you guessing the whole way through.
