I, like many others, anticipated this book for so long. Wanting to find out how Ms. Bishop would wrap up the saga of 'Witch'. She certainly pulled some stuff out of her literary hat. As there was a bit of a sneak preview to how the story ended, many readers went a bit ballistic and quite a few blogs indicated there would be many that refused to read it because of the twists and unexpected climax. I for one am too curious and was not let down by the anthology. I really enjoyed hearing all of the familiar characters and as usual, Mr. Sharian narrated the tales beautifully. We all would like to see happy endings for everyone in Askavi, but life and death happens and I can't really find fault with the way it finished. I will miss the characters gone, and if Anne decides to give us more Jewels, I'll be happy to continue listening as long as I'm entertained.

Audio read by same narrator throughout series. Narration and production values for this audio are good and you shouldn't be surprised or upset if you've listened to the other books in this series.
There was a lot of furor over this anthology when the story blurbs were released on Ms. Bishop's site and then some additional spoilers hit. I think that if a reader never wants to go where the short The High Lord’s Daughter takes us, there are still 3 shorts in the collection that are worth getting this for IMHO.
Winsol Gifts (2 Hours, 48 Minutes) - The Black Jewels 5.5 - 3.75 * ; Shades of Honor (6 Hours, 51 minutes) - The Black Jewels 5.6 - 4.5* ; Family (2 Hours, 33 Minutes) - The Black Jewels - 4* ; The High Lord’s Daughter (4 Hours, 14 Minutes) - The Black Jewels 9.9 - ?*
