Twilight's Dawn

Anne Bishop, Roc, $25.95 (448p) ISBN 978-0-451-46378-4
Bestseller Bishop fills out her popular Black Jewels dark fantasy universe (Daughter of the Blood, etc.) with this entertaining novella collection. Daemon Sadi, a black-jeweled Warlord Prince, deals with friends, family, and holiday celebrations in "Winsol Gifts," while his brother, Lucivar Yaslana, has to thwart a traitor and his deadly trap in the richly entertaining "Shades of Honor." A mother and her sons are threatened by a dangerous, twisted enemy in "Family," while Daemon becomes a father and finds a new lease on life and love in "The High Lord's Daughter." Fans of the series will enjoy revisiting some favorite characters and mourn the loss of others; new readers may be initially confused by the myriad names and titles, but Bishop's accessible writing style and interesting world-building will soon draw them into her web.
