Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Evil is still slowly spilling out of Gair’s well, creating havoc in Neroche. But Miach, Archmage of Neroche, is determined to close the well once and for all. Finding—stealing—the right spell isn’t easy, but what proves even more difficult for Miach is the discovery that the only one who can successfully work the spell of closure is Shieldmaiden Morgan of Melksham: Gair’s daughter and Miach’s true love. If Miach allows Morgan to complete the spell, it could save his kingdom, but it could also mean losing the woman he loves. Kurland brings her exquisitely crafted Nine Kingdoms trilogy, which began with Star of the Morning (2006) and continued with The Mage’s Daughter (2008), to a triumphant conclusion. Deftly sifting together love, honor, magic, and danger, Kurland has created a spellbinding, witty, and sweet paranormal romance. --John Charles

Format: Paperback
First, since some confusion exists regarding the progression of the Nine Kingdom's books, here's a current list (updated Jan '14):

Two Prelude short stories, found in anthologies with other authors:
The Queen in Winter ("A Whisper of Spring" When Symon, the first king of Neroche, woos and wins Iolaire)
To Weave a Web of Magic (The Tale of Two Swords where Mehar and Gilraehen fall in love)

Miach and Morgan's story is told in:
1- Star of the Morning
2- The Mage's Daughter
3- Princess of the Sword (this book)

Ruith and Sarah's story (which OVERLAPS Miach and Morgan's story in the timeline) is told in:
4- A Tapestry of Spells
5- Spellweaver
6- Gift of Magic

Rùnach and Aisling's story is being told in:
7- Dreamspinner

Format: Paperback
No longer a simple shield maiden, Morgan of Melksham is now aware that she is not only the daughter of Gair - the evil black mage of Ceangail, but also the elven princess, Morghain. She must learn to accept as part of herself the powerful magic she has always abhorred for she now realizes that only she can cap the well of dark magic unleashed by her father's spell. It's a race against time for Lothar, the black mage of Wychweald, will do anything he can to stop her and gain the dark power for himself.

With his brother, the king of Neroche and his queen ensconced in Lothar's dungeon, the fate of the Nine Kingdoms is at stake, and with his heart forever bound to the beautiful warrior, Prince Mochriadhemiach, archmage of Neroche, will do anything within his own considerable powers to protect Morgan.

To uncover the spell of closing, Morgan and Miach would brave peril in unlikely places and obtain aid from unlikely beings. The battle would be won with the help of friends, family, and an incredible array of ancestors but most of all with a pair of enchanted swords and the power of love.

What will become of this pair of unlikely lovers? Join them on the conclusion of their journey which began with STAR OF THE MORNING and continued with THE MAGE'S DAUGHTER. Follow them as they soar the skies, steal into dangerous places to uncover spells, and fight for their lives, their kingdoms and their love. Fate has a plethora of surprises in store for the tragically orphaned duo - Morgan, a woman whose only desire was to wield a sword who instead finds herself a princess with a heritage of frightening magic and Miach, a prince whose heritage is magic but whose fondest wish was to be a simple farmer.

Format: Paperback
Miach is the true draw to this story... Ladies, the reason we read romance is to find a guy like him and have him brought to life from the page. He is truly a rare find. My only advice to readers of this fantasy series is to NOT start with this book - buy, borrow, steal "Star of the Morning" and "The Mage's Daughter", read them and then get started on this book; otherwise you will be lost as to what is going on (this is not one of those series that rehashes entire sequences for you in order to "catch up"). Although I feel this book, the finale, could have been better, the series itself really astounded me in how well-wrought it was; Lynn Kurland is truly one talented lady. This series is going to be a wonderful addition to my 'favorites' bookshelf. Please keep them coming, Lynn!

Lynn Kurland is one of my favorite author's and I loved this series. It is quite a bit different from her other stuff which is usually more centered on romance, were as this will appeal to fiction lovers as well. This is the 3rd and conclusion to the series. A great story of good vs. evil with a good balance of love, mystery, action and comedy. Good character development and plot. Strong female lead as the heroine which a good break from all the damsels in distress. All in all a very enjoyable read and a satisfiable conclusion to the series.

This series was fantastic and the final book was perfect. This book draws you in and captures you attention until the final page. Plenty of bad guys, magic, suspense and a touch of romance with well developed characters make this trilogy a must read for fantasy fanatics.
