Jared is a Red-Jeweled Warlord bound as a pleasure slave by the Ring of Obedience. After suffering nine years of torment as a slave, he murdered his owner and escaped - only to be caught and sold into slavery once again.

more consistently paced that the first black jewel book but not as intense as the second two. This was a good break from the main storyline without having to leave the fantasy world or lore of the series. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Seven hundred years ago, a Black Widow witch saw an ancient prophecy come to life in her web of dreams and visions. Now, the Dark Kingdom readies itself for the arrival of its queen, a witch who will wield more power than even the High Lord of Hell himself. But she is still young, still open to influence - and corruption.

confusing at first, slow for the first 10 hours, the last 4 hours pick up and redeem everything. Really enjoyed it in the end.

Not Carey's best but still good. As always the world felt immersive and fleshed out. However, the actual adventure seemed rushed and almost short compared to her previous novels. I enjoyed it but unlike her Legacy series which I felt like I couldnt put down all the way to the 9th book, this one didnt quite grip me as hard.
