50 Book Challenge- Book 2- Heir to the Darkness

Well, I found that after getting this challenge started, it has become easier to read my books. I have just completed book 2 of the 50 book challenge. It is the second book in Anne Bishop's Black Jewels trilogy. I highly recommend it for anyone that loves a good fantasy. This is what the publisher has to say about the book:
"In this violently passionate, "darkly fascinating world,"** the Blood rule: a race of witches and warlocks whose power is channeled through magical jewels. Ambitions unfurl in this second novel of The Black Jewels Trilogy, as the realm's dreams of a liberator have finally been made flesh...

Jaenelle, singled out by prophecy as the living embodiment of magic, is haunted by the cruel battles the Blood have fought over her-for not all of them await her as their Savior. Nothing, however, can deflect her from her destiny-and the day of reckoning looms near. When her memories return. When her magic matures. When she is forced to accept her fate. On that day, the dark Realms will know what it means to be ruled by Witch."

I liked this book because it was a lot more light-hearted than the first, however, nothing and everything seemed to happen during this installment. There was not a lot of action, however, the Craft in this book was necessary to create the story of the third installment as I have discovered quickly. I highly recommend this series to anyone. The characters are well developed and once you start reading, you won't want to stop!
