The land of Terre d'Ange is a place of unsurpassing 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. Phedre no Delaunay is a young woman who was born with a scarlet mote in her left eye. Sold into indentured servitude as a child, her bond is purchased by Anafiel Delaunay, a nobleman with a very special mission ... and the first one to recognize who and what she is: one pricked by Kushiel's Dart, chosen to forever experience pain and pleasure as one. Phedre is trained equally in the courtly arts and the talents of the bedchamber, but, above all, the ability to observe, remember, and analyze. Almost as talented a spy as she is courtesan, Phedre stumbles upon a plot that threatens the very foundation of her homeland. Treachery sets her on her path; love and honor goad her further. And in the doing, it will take her to the edge of despair ... and beyond. Hateful friend, loving enemy, beloved assassin; they can all wear the same glittering mask in this world, and Phedre will get but one chance to save all that she hold dear. Set in a world of cunning poets, deadly courtiers, heroic traitors, and a truly Machiavellian villainess, this is a novel of grandeur, lusuriance, sacrifice, betrayal, and deeply laid conspiracies.… (mais)

This series is a guilty pleasure beach read for me. I read it every few years and while it isn't the most engaging story or the best written I find it enjoyable and worth the time. ( )

I would describe this book as "masochist woman with slightly magical vagina conquers the world".

Note - this is not a criticism. It's well written, amusing, intricate, interesting. It's nice to read a book where people don't have sexual hangups, which is straight faced and upfront about bdsm (not being silly) while also thoughtfully exploring the implications of a society which incorporates it.

The romance aspect is actually chaste for the most part, because in a world/book where sex isn't much of a big deal, people by and large aren't repressed about these things; therefore the people she doesn't sleep with take on additional significance.

I have no desire to read the rest though because I think the book is complete as is and would not benefit from sequels. ( )

Sorry just not into torture porn, especially with teens.

I gave this 7.5 hours out of a 31 hour audiobook, before I read some reviews to find out if it was gonna be any different in last 3/4ths; sounds like it's not. Every sex scene included a new kink, and I wasn't waiting around to not enjoy the scat and golden showers scenes.

Obviously Carey can write and it seems like she created a very detailed society and was setting up some political intrigue, but really it was about the sex and I get enough sex to not have to read about it, especially when it's stuff I'm totally not into.

Reading this was anxiety inducing as I sat there wondering if the 10 year-old character was going to be raped or prostituted out by her elders. The author had the good sense to wait until the character was at least a teenager, but really I'm not sure, at 51, what I would think about myself if I enjoyed reading about a teen age girl having kinky sex with adults. My son is about the same age. Just really freaking gross. ( )

Just couldn't get into it. ( )

Sweepingly epic, sensual, romantic, erotic, and a hell of a good read. I actually bought this book 5 years ago (when I bought Harry Potter #5), and it's a shame I waited this long to finally read it. It seems like the epic books I've read recently (this, Cryptonomicon, Foucault's Pendulum) have been the best and brightest of my collection, easily outpacing everything else I pick up. It makes me want to read them all the more, now, which is great considering I have the two other books in this trilogy, as well as any number of huge and imposing books waiting in the wings. ( )

Overall, though, this is a really superior debut, integrating original themes, intelligent world-building, and skillful writing to an extent all too rare in today's fantasy market. It should immediately establish Carey as one of the most interesting and talented of the current crop of rising fantasy stars.

Thank you to my parents, Marty and Rob, for a lifetime of love and encouragement, and to Julie, whose belief never wavered. To my great aunt Harriett, a very special mahalo for all her stalwart support.

Lest anyone should suppose that I am a cuckoo's child, got on the wrong side of the blanket by lusty peasant stock and sold into indenture in a shortfallen season, I may say that I am House-born and reared in the Night Court proper, for all the good it did me.
