Queen of Darkness
Author: Anne Bishop
Publisher: HarperCollins Australia
the Blood has ruled the territories for millennia. Magic-gifted humans and animals, the strongest of them can travel through gates, compel others to their will, heal wounds or kill. Over the generations, the rulers have become corrupt, torturing and murdering in their quest for absolute power. Now, there is hope for the Blood. Jaenelle Angelline, a young witch, is one of the rare queens, gifted with both unusual power and a sense of justice. Ancient prophecies and new hopes put her between the ruthless plots of other queens and those who have flocked to Jaenelle for protection. However, the Blood has become tainted with cruelty and power lust, and in the looming war Jaenelle's victory may destroy her people more thoroughly than a loss.
Three men, sworn enemies, vie for sway over the girl witch--a blue-eyed innocent--who is to rule over the Dark Kingdom, commencing a ruthless game of politics, magic and betrayal, in which the weapons are love and hate. Original.
