‘Rich, intricate worldbuilding meets swoonworthy romance. . . PhÃ©dre and Joscelin’s story is the beating heart of every romantasy to follow’ – Olivie Blake
The triumphant conclusion to this trilogy, Kushiel’s Avatar by Jacqueline Carey is a sumptuous fantasy of defiance and redemption – perfect for fans of Sarah J. Maas and Jennifer L. Armentrout.
Desire. Duty. Death.
PhÃ¨dre has lain with princes and pirate kings, battled a wicked temptress, and saved two nations. But Joscelin has remained her loyal swordsman throughout. Chosen to experience pain and pleasure as one, PhÃ¨dre’s nature is tortuous to them both. Yet Joscelin has never forsaken his vow: to protect and serve, even if her plans push his pledge to its limit.
For PhÃ¨dre can’t abandon her friend, Hyacinthe, who bargained with gods to spare her life. She’s long sought the key to free him from eternal servitude – even if this means her death. This now takes PhÃ¨dre and Joscelin to a distant court where madness reigns and souls are used as currency. But they’ll also find a power so mighty that none dare speak its name . . .
