Daughter of the Blood (The Black Jewels #1)
by Anne Bishop
"The Dark Kingdom is preparing itself for the fulfillment of an ancient prophecy--the arrival of a new Queen, a Witch who will wield more power than even the High Lord of Hell himself. But this new ruler is young, and very susceptible to influence and corruption; whoever controls her controls the Darkness. And now, three sworn enemies begin a ruthless game of politics and intrigue, magic and betrayal, and the destiny of an entire world is at stake."
This is a story different from we ever seen, with a society highly female orientated, where males taking up the positions of the sexual whores that service the witch queens. Some of the characters even wear a Ring of Obedience around their private member to keep them in line. They are used for sexual pleasure and torture and if anyone jumps out of line, they end up shaved.
I really enjoy this book because is different from the others and brings the idea that dark is not always associated with bad thing.
If you enjoy reading Dark Fantasy, I'm sure that you will love this book.
