Dreams Made Flesh
There are way too many characters and places to truly explain what is going on. Everyone in this world is born with a birthright jewel. These jewels allow people to do a certain extent of magic. The lightest colored jewels have the least amount of power while the darkest jewels have the most power. When they come of age, they make an offering to the Darkness, much like a prayer/meditation time. After making this offering, they walk away with a different colored jewel. Throughout their lives, they can pull power from this offered jewel as well as their birthright jewel. The extent of their capabilities is way to intricate to try and write about. When I first started reading Daughter of the Blood I was so confused and almost stopped reading the book. But I kept with it and grew to love the series and the characters. My next read will be book six in this series, Tangled Webs.
