Kushiel's Avatar - Kushiel's Legacy, Bk 3 Author:Jacqueline Carey The land of Terre d'Ange is a place of unsurpassed beauty and grace. It is said that angels found the land and saw it was good ... and the ensuing race that rose from the seed of angels and men live by one simple rule: Love as thou wilt. — Ph?dre n? Delaunay is a woman pricked by Kushiel's Dart, chosen to forever experience pain and pleasure as o... more »ne. Her path has been strange and dangerous, and through it all the devoted swordsman Joscelin has been at her side. Her very nature is a torturous thing for them both, but he is sworn to her and he has never violated his vow: to protect and serve.
But Ph?dre's plans put Joscelin's pledge to the test, for she has never forgotten her childhood friend Hyacinthe. She has spent ten long years searching for the key to free him from his eternal indenture, a bargain he struck with the gods to take Ph?dre's place as a sacrifice and save a nation. Ph?dre cannot forgive herself or the gods. She is determined to seize one last hope to redeem her friend, even of it means her death.
The search will bring Ph?dre and Joscelin across the world, to distant courts where madness reigns and souls are currency, and down a fabled river to a land forgotten by most of the world.
And to a power so mighty that none dare speak its name.« less
