I have read all the books in this series and this is by far the best. This is book number 8 called Shalador's Lady. It is tightly packed with the missing action from the previous book, because now is the time for our characters to dig in and fight for who they want to rule Dena Nehele. That's right... another Queen from Kaeleer stirs things up. There are three divisions in this book: Cassidy and her Court, Kermilla and those who want her, and the sideline observers--the SaDiablo family and some important rulers of Kaeleer. The reader builds a deeper understanding of the ruling system of the Blood and which lines are not to be crossed. How involved should outside help be in the influencing a Territory, especially when that Territory is straining under a tug-of-war for leadership? How to fight for land and people without decimating what's left with war? There are hard decisions to be made, in order to accomplish the original premise of The Shadow Queen--restoring faith and the Old Ways of the Blood to weary and wary survivors of Dena Nehele. Fascinating, how this plays out.

LOVED the story! I love all of the stories set in the Black Jewels world. And John Sharien did a great job reading this story, and ask the others, which was why it was frustrating and disapponting to hear him give Janelle a Celtic accent in this book and The Shadow Queen.
Otherwise this book is hands down my favorite of the entire series!
