[Book Review] Daughter of the Blood by Anne Bishop

Daughter of the Blood by Anne Bishop
Not recommended
Read Melusine by Sarah Monette instead.

From the cover copy: Seven hundred years ago, a Black Widow witch saw an ancient prophecy come to life in her dazzling web of dreams and visions.

But she is still young, still open to influence -- and corruption.

Whoever controls the Queen controls the Darkness. Three men -- sworn enemies -- know that. And they know the power that hides behind the blue eyes of an innocent young girl. And so begins a ruthless game of politics and intrigue, magic and betrayal, where the weapons are hate and love...and the prize could be terrible beyond imagining.
