Editorial Reviews

Review

"It's Clear That Katherine Kurtz is a Great New Talent in the Field of Fantasy. The Books Have the Promise of Tolkien or Eddison ..."

From the Publisher

The late Lester del Rey had a theory about the biological seat of Deryni power, a theory that he could have related in astonishing specificity. I just remember that he said it must come from somewhere in the nose, something related to the olfactory senses. I always thought that wa snot a very glamourous way to look at an exciting, epic sweep of fantasy. But after all, magic has to come from somewhere.

--Veronica Chapman, Senior Editor

Katherine Kurtz does a splendid job of concluding her trilogy of Deryni novels. I especially enjoyed the resolution of Alaric Morgan's and his cousin Duncan's excommunication from the Church, and the revelation of Arilan's secret. The tension left me on the edge of my seat. A very satisfying conclusion.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
With this novel, the initial trilogy of the Deryni comes to a close, and in ways that are ultimately unexpected.
The previous volume left quite a mess for King Kelson to clean up, with a civil war to the south, an invading army to the north, a treasonous Earl, an adamantly opposed Archbishop, all lining up for various reasons against Kelson. His internal opponents are so blinded by their own dogmatic resistance to be able to comprehend that they are making their own situation worse by their opposition. They are convinced of the evil of the Deryni, and will oppose a Deryni Duke, even if it means that an evil Deryni warlord will invade and conquer.
King Wencit of Torenth already has the upper hand by his trechary, having slaughtered the armies in the north, the Cassini and Kheldish armies and is ready for pitched battle against a divided Gwynned. But even then, he has plans to skip the battle, a new plot and counterplot, a master schemer he is, pitting himself against both Gwynned and the Camberian Council.
There are a few interesting twists and a rather unsatisfying ending, but it does work out for the best, with no small amount of pain on the part of the victors. War is hell, and it is difficult to be king.

A fine addition to my library, I have been wanting it in hard-cover for years, but could not afford it. The price was VERY reasonable, and came very promptly through USPS!

the whole series is great...it was fun to reread this book 20 years or so after first reading it. camber, the church references, wrapped in a medieval are captivating and compelling
