This award-winning dark fantasy romance series from Jean Lowe Carlson explores sacrifice and love via sex and magic, in the style of Jacqueline Carey’s Kushiel Series and Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander. With a flavor of fairytale magic, the Three Days of Oblenite dark fantasy trilogy is typical of Ms. Carlson’s style - a complex and emotional fantasy for adults.
