Legacies (Part two of the SCI'ON Trilogy) by Nicola Rhodes (Paperback) - Lulu
Please try again later. I'm not going to go through a blow-by-blow no pun intended account of the plot. Suffice to say that we see the more mature side of Imriel emerging in this book, the second of the trilogy centred on him. I wasn't sure if Jacqueline Carey would be able to generate the same kind of excitement and unpredictability as she did in the earlier trilogy but I needn't have worried. This book really surprised me in its adventurous plot and unflinching character development.
Carey allows her characters to have very human emotions - selfishness, greed, thoughtlessness, hatred but also hope, healing, self-sacrifice, love and devotion.
We see all of these in Imriel! As usual, we are introduced to new geographical locations and new cultures. We learn lots more about the Cruithne and Dalriada - the first part of the book is very focussed on their culture and much of it is based in Alba. Carey is also good at developing peripheral characters and allowing them to play essential parts in her stories - there's plenty of that in this book. Having hugely enjoyed the whole of the first trilogy I was very slightly disappointed in some elements of the first book in Imriel's trilogy - although it was still a cracking good story.
This book makes up for it with knobs on. There is less 'angst' in Imriel - although he still has huge problems in his life, he is becoming more comfortable in his own skin. This is due, mostly, to the interventions of two very different women - Dorelei Drustan's niece and Sidonie the eldest daughter of Ysandre and Drustan, heir to the throne of Terre D'Ange. The core of this book is Imriel's difficult relationships with both of them. He learns that you can't always have what you want and sometimes you can't resolve the conflicts in your life without losing something precious.
I can't wait to get my hands on the final installment in the trilogy - pre-ordered in fact! It has now been shipped as at 9 June so I'm waiting eagerly for the postman to arrive Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. At first, I hungered for Phedre's point of view. But I gradually lost myself in young Imreil's growth from wishing to do the right thing on to the way he fell in love with the goodness of his bride.
The desert of his effort served to produce a strong surge of tears in me. This service is regulated by its own guild. Furthermore, to serve in the Court of Night-Blooming Flowers , composed of several Houses, each with their own interpretation of Naamah's reasons for prostituting herself, is regarded as the highest pinnacle in Naamah's Service.

Terre d'Ange is divided into seven provinces, each with a companion as its patron deity. Cassiel, who eschewed mortal love and never fully rejected the One God, is the only companion without a province. The Cassiline Brotherhood , however, follows the ways and philosophy of Cassiel and have a prominent role in d'Angeline society.
At the beginning of the series relations are generally good with Terre d'Ange's neighboring countries of Aragonia , Caerdicca Unitas , and distant Khebbel-im-Akkad. Skaldia , however, has long sought to conquer the D'Angelines. They also have good relations with Alba and Eire though scarce given the impact of the Master of the Straits.
The third trilogy within the Kushiel Universe follows Moirin, a half-d'Angeline and half- Alban descendant of House Courcel , approximately years after Kushiel's Legacy.
