Publisher's Summary

Prequel to the Daughters of the Dagger series

Mirabelle de Burgh is desperate to give her husband an heir. She's heard of the superstition that to buy a jeweled dagger from a blind old hag would ensure her of conceiving a child. One child for each dagger bought.

The old hag she hunts down has many jeweled daggers, but Mirabelle has limited coins and wants many children. Her greed gets her in trouble and she finds herself in a predicament which causes many circumstances in her life to change.

Four jeweled daggers and four daughters, each with a story, and a surprise later in life that none of them would ever suspect, in Daughters of the Dagger.

A great prequel!!

Author Elizabeth Rose writes an exciting and enticing prequel to her Daughters of the Daggers Series. This prequel also sets the stage for for the MadMan MacKeefe Series. I thoroughly enjoyed this prequel, as I became familiar with the backstory of Ruby, Sapphire, Amber & Amethyst, as well as the birth of their only brother Onyx. I highly recommend this book and both series by Elizabeth Rose.

Loved, Loved it!

Any additional comments?

Mirabelle was desperate to give her husband children. She went to an old blind hag to buy a jeweled dagger as she had heard that it would insure she would have a male child. She only had enough money to buy four of them. The hag told her she had to name the girl children after each stone in the daggers ---- Ruby, Amethyst, Amber and Sapphire for them to find true love. Mirabelle wanted a forth one and tried to steal it. She got caught up in her greed and her story is one to behold. Such pagan and intrigue is written in this tale. It is setting us up in great stories to come.

Be careful for what you wish for

Great beginning of a series. I look forward to the other books. Maribel wanted sons for her husband, but because she was greedy, the old hags prediction, will be the death of her and her son, but her 4 daughters will live on in the books. Great narration.

Excellent prequel!!!!

What an excellent way to set up a new series. I read book one first (see my review of 'Ruby , daughters of the dagger ') and came back to the prequel. I'm glad I did although it's not strictly necessary.

Wonderful is the word for the books and the narrator.

Great beginning

Great prequel to the rest of the series of Daughters of the Daggers. This series must be listened to/ read before the McKeefe Madman, as there is Onyx's story after. The McKeefe's of Legacy of the Blade are mentioned in this series . The narrator is ok. Needs getting used to. Preferred Kevin Green in Legacy of the Blades. But a great beginning. A must read/ listen to before the rest of the series.

Narrator did not appeal..

… and nor did the narrative! He has an odd tone and stress which I shall avoid, while it just isn't my thing I guess.
