Synopsis

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. Whoever controls the Queen controls the darkness. Three men-sworn enemies-know this.

This must be a reissue as I've read this series a couple of years ago. It is stunning, beautiful, and fresh. I devoured the series in just a few days. The characters are haunting and so well written that they become part of you. It's rare to find fresh fantasy that hits emotional chords within you and isn't yet another Tolkien-type hero quest adventure. Anne Bishop is one of my favorite authors.
