By Jacqueline Carey
Reminder: This book has adult themes. I do not recommend allowing children or teenagers to read this book.
Phebe, Kushiel’s Chosen is back having adventures in the land of the gods. She has found that Melisandre (who escaped a traitor’s death) is plotting against the new queen. Phebe goes to La Serenissima and discovers…
Well, I am not going to ruin the plot. Once again Carey has delivered. There is less “rod and weal” with the same amount of danger as the last book. Phebe has matured some and her Casseline escort also matures.
If you remember from the first book, he was a quite arrogant.
I give this book a 4.5 stars. I wasn’t quite as gushy as the first book. But, it was a good read.
