Series: Black Jewels Trilogy
The world of the Black Jewels Trilogy is one filled with magic, governed by Queens and their courts of powerful Warlords. Over the recent centuries, a slow creeping taint has filled the Realm of Light. Strong-willed, deeply magical warlords have been warped and repressed by a witch who hopes to harness them to her tainted cause, until they perpetuate the very corruption they fear. The High Lord of Hell is the only one strong enough (and free enough) to overcome her, but he's over 50,000 years old and tired of unlife.
A prophesy from a half-crazed witch declares that the Dark Queen is coming, she who can cleanse all the realms. And she does come, 700 years after her foretelling. She'll fulfill the wishes of countless dreamers-- if they can keep her safe from the taint long enough to reach her full power. Otherwise, she'll be the embodiment of all their nightmares.
