Younger generations, infatuated by a heart-twisting, star-crossed romance, defend the couple. But those who are old enough cannot forget the misdeeds of Imriel’s mother, Melisande Shahrizaiwho plunged their country into a bloody war that cost the lives of many. To quell the unrest, Queen Ysandre hands down a decree—she will not divide the lovers, but neither will she acknowledge them. If they decide to marry, Sidonie will be disinherited, losing her claim on the D’Angeline throne.
Unless Imriel can find his mother and bring her back to Terre D’Ange to be executed for treason. Faced with this terrible choice, Imriel and Sidonie prepare for another long separation. Page count is pages divided over eighty-nine chapters. The breathtaking cover art—my favorite of the trilogy—is provided by Cheryl Griesbach and Stanley Martucci.
Personally, I thought this was a really smart move. Plus, it really emphasized the powerful connection between Imriel and Sidonie.
After all, this is their story. But Jacqueline introduces a few surprising elements in this book including a first-person perspective of a new character in Leander Maignardsome powerful sorcery that is straight out of a Disney fairy tale—though with a much darker bent—and various other little twists that keeps the reader second-guessing.
It was especially refreshing to have such a different voice tell the story and to see ImrielSidonieMelisandeetc. The final fate of Melisande Shahrizai. A heart-wrenching love story that conquers all including continents, years, wars, and gods.
A plethora of adventure, magic, and intrigue.
Mouth-watering hints of the next Kushiel series. A triumphant and joyful conclusion to the Imriel Trilogy.

How far along are you with the book, is there anything you can tell us about it and considering that this will be your third D’Angeline trilogy, are you at all worried about possibly recycling the same storylines, characters and themes from the other series?
In other words, how will you make this new trilogy a fresh experience for both you as a writer and for fans of the series? Keeping things fresh in a familiar milieu is always a challenge.

Did any of this affect you and is there anything you would like to say? Yes, we lost a lot of titans in the genre last year.
