Tangled Webs

Tangled Webs by Anne Bishop (A Black Jewels Novel)

What was this book about?
The Blood are a race with rules, powers, and a hierarchy. When Queen Janelle and her witch friend Marian decide to open a “haunted house” to scare those that are not Bloods, and feed on their beliefs of what being Blood means, no one thinks it is a good idea. But because it is their Queen when they get an invitation to visit the house they can’t help but give in.

What they do not realize is that Janelle did not send the invitation. The house is a trap. Surreal and Rainier must escape the house that’s only goal is to kill them and the children they brought in with them. The only problem is every time they use their Craft they eliminate an exit, leaving them with the possibility of being trapped in the house forever.

Their family – Daemon and Janelle, Luciver and Marian must rescue them before they are killed.

What was your favorite part about this book?
The haunted house, Craft, and Jewels are an interesting take on the supernatural world. I want to learn more about it.

What was your least favorite part about this book?
Since this was my first Black Jewel novel I felt like I was a little bit behind everything else while reading this. It was good at not going to in depth for the people that had read previous books, and it explained well many of the things that had happened before. It just was spread throughout the book and it took me a bit to get it (and keep everything straight with all the other worlds etc.)

What genre would you consider this?


Overall: B, Definitely would keep reading series. Going to try to start at the beginning next time though.

If I was to nominate this book for an award it would be: Book That Reminds Me A Little of the Meredith Gentry Series.
