Kushiel's Chosen: A Wyrd and Wonder Read-along

We’re planning to return to Terre d’Ange! The new year will see a new Wyrd & Wonder read-along as we embark on Phèdre nó Delaunay’s second epic adventure as Kushiel’s Chosen.

Phèdre nó Delaunay is the rarest of Naamah’s Servants: an anguisette, one who finds pleasure in pain. Dedicated to protecting her beloved Terre d’Ange and its young queen, Ysandre de la Courcel, she must return to her life as courtesan and spy to try and uncover which of the Queen’s closest allies helped the country’s greatest traitor escape justice.

At Phèdre’s side is her steadfast companion Joscelin Verreuil, determined to protect and serve the woman he loves. But will love be enough to keep them together in the face of Mélisande’s schemes and Phèdre’s nature?

As long as Mélisande Shahrizai lives, she poses a threat to Terre d’Ange …and to Phèdre, hopelessly bound to the woman who knows how best to hurt her.

Yes, we’re diving back into Jacqueline Carey’s epic series in the New Year. Will you join us?
