Kushiel's Dart
Kushiel's Dart | Jacqueline Carey
A nation born of angels, vast and intricate and surrounded by danger... a woman born to servitude, unknowingly given access to the secrets of the realm...Born with a scarlet mote in her left eye, Phdre n Delaunay is sold into indentured servitude as a child. When her bond is purchased by an enigmatic nobleman, she is trained in history, theology, politics, foreign languages, the arts of pleasure. And above all, the ability to observe, remember, and analyze. Exquisite courtesan, talented spy... and unlikely heroine. But when Phdre stumbles upon a plot that threatens her homeland, Terre d'Ange, she has no choice.Betrayed into captivity in the barbarous northland of Skaldia and accompanied only by a disdainful young warrior-priest, Phdre makes a harrowing escape and an even more harrowing journey to return to her people and deliver a warning of the impending invasion. And that proves only the first step in a quest that will take her to the edge of despair and beyond.Phdre n Delaunay is the woman who holds the keys to her realm's deadly secrets, and whose courage will decide the very future of her world. Not since Dune has there been an epic on the scale of Kushiel's Dart-a massive tale about the violent death of an old age and the birth of a new. It is a novel of grandeur, luxuriance, sacrifice, betrayal, and deeply laid conspiracies. A world of cunning poets, deadly courtiers, deposed rulers and a besieged Queen, a warrior-priest, the Prince of Travelers, barbarian warlords, heroic traitors, and a truly Machiavellian villainess... all seen through the unflinching eyes of an unforgettable heroine.

Really liked this book thought it was different from the fantasy I usually read, I thought ending was okay, don‘t know if I will continue the series. But overall recommend it for someone who wants some spicy fantasy with interesting characters and culture.

1. There is an infamous story of me crying at my desk in middle school (full-on sobbing) over the impact of a book. I cannot remember the name for the life of me, but I recall it was a classic 🤷🏻‍♀️🥹
2. Sci-fi, fantasy and mystery - suspense & imagination
3. Tagged is a fine example

This is a great series that I‘m sorry is over. It uses France and England in a fantasy middle age period. It involves a very loose interpretation of various cultural things about the world and is really great adult fantasy. I don‘t know of anything that is quite comparable to it. All of the books in the series are good. Some people may be put off by the sexual liberalism but it‘s one of the reasons it‘s unique in my opinion.

Nute Welcome to Litsy! It‘s a warm and friendly community. I know that you will enjoy yourself here. I‘m looking forward to getting to know you!🙂

It's been ages since I've read this series so I don't remember details, but I think Melisande and Phèdre's dynamic is roughly comparable to Frank and Carl's.

"But Pierre Cantrel had a weak head and strong passions, so when coin swelled the purse at his belt and seed filled to bursting the purse between his legs, it was to Jasmine House, indolent and sensual, that he hied himself."

I do believe that is the most exquisite passage of a man's raging libido I've yet encountered!!

This has been on my “to read” list for years based on its glowing reviews and maybe I hyped it up too much but I nearly bailed on this book. I appreciated the action and the fact that this book was almost broken into three very different installments but I was almost painfully bored by all the politics and many many many names of various courts.

An interesting world but the book is over written and repetitive, and I also didn't like some elements of the story. I bailed at 97 pages.

This may possibly be my very favorite series. There are actually 3 trilogies, and I love them all. Kushiel‘s Dart/ Chosen/ Avatar I‘ve reread many times. Political intrigue, a wonderful fantasy religion, kinky sex, and my favorite female main character anywhere. So good.

Rich in characters and world building. I read these in grad school and I remember standing in a bar and trying to explain to a friend these books. "So, uh, there's this woman who loves pain and she grew up trained as a courtesan and a spy..."

#WyrdAndWonder day 18: celebrate an author

I had several in mind today, but a few conversations changed my course to an old favourite: Jacqueline Carey. Her sagas of Terre d‘Ange are gorgeously imagined, lusciously executed conflicts of love and treachery, purpose and personality. She‘s got a lot of mentions this year as an author folk would like to read or reread, so: who is up for a Wyrd & Wonder summer read-along of Kushiel‘s Dart?

Lucy_Anywhere Ooooh, this has been on my TBR for ages. I'd be interested in a read-along 2y
imyril @Lucy_Anywhere fab! I‘m thinking late summer (August / September - it‘s a chunky book so will have a relaxed schedule) 2y

An intricate and complex high fantasy filled with politics and desire. I was hesitant to read this. I hate sex in books. But the story does not focus on the physical actions when Phedre is with a client, instead, it focuses on the espionage. Sure, you know what is happening, but it‘s in the background to everything else going on. A surprising find!

I was looking for a new fantasy series and this was recommended by Bookriot. Really glad I read it as it is very different than my normal style. Set in an alternative historical time perios reminiscent of Rome, it follows Phedre, a courtesan who is trained as a spy and also marked by two gods. Politics, murder, religion and history but mingled with intrigue, mystery and sex.
Can't wait to read the next ones

How to describe? Political machinations abound - a complex world where sex is not shameful, nor are prostitutes... while the main character is marked by Kushiel and enjoys pain, the sex isn‘t the focus- it IS however important to the story and treated respectfully and more-or-less tastefully

My favorite under-the-radar book (and series and author) for #24in48‘s hour 30 challenge.

I know there is a cult following, but still I‘m surprised at some fantasy lovers not knowing about these books.

I consider them under the radar because of the S&M aspect; there are some people I definitely don‘t want to discuss them with! But if you like incredibly sexy books AND epic fantasy, you need to read these now!

This arrived today and my dog seems almost depressed knowing I won‘t get up for several hours and instead of playing with him will read.

Just finishing up The Cruel Prince and then will dive into this! #fantasy #dogsoflitsy

Found at the library used book sale. I didn't realize how many books are in this series. Time to hunt down book two.

I love reading in the mornings with my coffee before I take my medical exam at school. It‘s a great way to start my next book. This book got 912 pages! 😁 so it‘s gonna take me a couple of days to finish it. #marchinbooks#currentlyreading#fantasy#bigbook
