Queen of the Darkness - Anne Bishop

In this final book of the Black Jewels Trilogy, Jaenelle has become Queen of Ebon Askavi, embracing her full power, and old enemies have come back to try to remove her from the throne.

There was a definite, satisfying end to Jaenelle’s relationship with her biological family, who had not understood her powers, and put her in terrible danger as a result. There was also a final resolution to her relationship with Daemon.

And, things come to a head, as the must, between Jaenelle and Dorothea and Hekatah, the two priestesses from the other Realms trying to wrest power from Jaenelle. That section is honestly rather anticlimactic, though I’m not sure if that’s because I did know what happens, having managed to read ahead in the series. Still, it’s a good resolution to the trilogy, which I’ve definitely enjoyed.
