Twilight’s Dawn is the latest collection of four stories about Daemon, Janelle, Surreal, Lucivar and Saetan by Anne Bishop.

In ‘Winsol Gift’s’, Daemon must deal not only with hosting Winsol, but also with the complications his family brings. In ‘Shades of Honor’, Lucivar’s rule is challenged by Falconar, who wants it for himself. In ‘Family’, young children are once again been taken and when Sylvia and her family are attacked the SaDiablo family wants blood. In ‘The High Lord’s Daughter’ two are lost and Daemon must find a way to rebuild his life and his heart.

I love Anne Bishop’s Black Jewel’s series. For me, it’s a world I love returning to. I love being able to dip into it, as I can with this collection of stories, but at the same time it leaves me longing for something larger to read about the SaDiablo family. ‘Shades of Honor’ provided this in some way as did ‘Family’ but the last story, ‘The High Lord’s Daughter’ has left me wondering whether this will be the last collection set in this world. I hope not, for I will miss the new stories and beloved characters.

Anne Bishop’s Black Jewel’s series is the deliciously dark world most paranormal stories are trying to create. If you’re a fan then you’ll enjoy this book and if you haven’t read any of the series then these stories are a great way to get to know the SaDiablo family.
