Imriel's epic

by Ellyb on Mar 24, 2010

I feel like the realm-shattering, epic punch of this book came out of nowhere, when considered in comparison with the first two Imriel books. This is both a great thing, and a strange thing. It's great because finally, the scope of Carey's writing expanded back to the levels not seen since Phèdre released her friend Hyacinthe from his curse. The strange thing is that this book therefore feels like an abrupt departure from its immediate predecessors. On its own merits, however, "Kushiel's Mercy" is highly readable. The passion and love between Imriel and Sidonie is palpable and runs through the book like a heartbeat. The narrative races along at a harrowing speed, and I found it difficult to put the book down. Imriel also finally comes into his own as a powerful, intelligent protagonist. I did enjoy this conclusion to the Kushiel's Legacy series, even if I ultimately still prefer the first three books of the series.


Jacqueline does it again

by Sagath on Sep 27, 2008

When I first began reading Kushiel's Scion, the first book in Imriel's story I thought to myself, "how is she going to make this epic," because i had believed that after Phedre, epic wasn't something I should expect. I was wrong. I was given everything I desired from Jacqueline Carey's writing and more with this fantastic conclusion to Imriel's saga. This book is a testament of how love can cross many boundaries and that even in the face of dire magics, it can win out. Fantastic read, and I will certainly read it again just like all her other books.
