Naamah's Kiss

I have yet to read Kushiel's Justice & Kushiel's Mercy, but I'm really looking forward to this one. I loved the first 4 books!

Book Description:
Once there were great magicians born to the Maghuin Dhonn; the folk of the Brown Bear, the oldest tribe in Alba. But generations ago, the greatest of them all broke a sacred oath sworn in the name of all his people. Now, only small gifts remain to them. Through her lineage, Moirin possesses such gifts - the ability to summon the twilight and conceal herself, and the skill to coax plants to grow.

Moirin has a secret, too. From childhood onward, she senses the presence of unfamiliar gods in her life; the bright lady, and the man with a seedling cupped in his palm. Raised in the wilderness by her reclusive mother, it isn't until she comes of age that Moirin learns how illustrious, if mixed, her heritage is. The great granddaughter of Alais the Wise, child of the Maghuin Donn, and a cousin of the Cruarch of Alba, Moirin learns her father was a D'Angeline priest dedicated to serving Naamah, goddess of desire.

After Moirin undergoes the rites of adulthood, she finds divine acceptance...on the condition that she fulfill an unknown destiny that lies somewhere beyond the ocean. Or perhaps oceans. Beyond Terre d'Ange where she finds her father, in the far reaches of distant Ch'in, Moirin's skills are a true gift when facing the vengeful plans of an ambitious mage, a noble warrior princess desperate to save her father's throne, and the spirit of a celestial dragon.

  1. I read most of Kushiel's Dart years ago. I don't know, her writing was sometimes very hard to stay with.

    Naamah's Kiss sounds really good. I suppose they must be read in order? Or is this a new series set in the same world?

  2. Which is surprise since this is a fantasy series. But you know it took me a few chapters to really get into it.

    It's in the same world... but I believe it's many years later. You could probably read it without reading the other books. Carey is good with doing back story, but she doesn't over do it either. :)

  3. Sounds like a very unique series Anna!

    I don't remember ever reading the like of it. However, I have to say I'm not a real fantasy connoisseur except Tolkien's work.

    Thank you for sharing!

  4. Maybe I'll pick this one up then and give her another try.

  5. Lea, your right it's a very unique series. I haven't read anything like it before.

    They have it in the fantasy section at stores. But I always think of it as Erotic Fantasy.

    Good stuff.

  6. I'm new to the fantasy genre so I've not read a whole lot but this looks very interesting!! :)

  7. If Amy can't keep up, there's no way I could, LOL!!! I'm the worst. Simple. Keep it simple. Let us not forget I am blonde ;)

    Great review, Anna.


  8. LOL!

    Thanks for the compliment Barbara, but it was just a book blurb not a review. :)
