If youve never visited Gwynedd and met the Deryni, youve missed a rare and wonderful fantasy series, filled with incredibly real characters, breathtaking magic, and plots that keep you reading into the wee hours of the night. The Deryni world roughly parallels 10th, 11th, and 12th century England, Scotland, and Wales and accurately depicts life in that era with detailed descriptions of castles and clothing. The Deryni possess magical powers which their powerful medieval church views as evil, so they face conflicts with the Church as well as enemy armies...
Deryni Rising: Charissa, a full-blooded Deryni trained in the disciplines of sorcery and necromancy, threatens the rulership of Kelson and the life of his chief advisor Morgan.
Deryni Checkmate: Threatened by King Kelson's trust in Duke Alaric Morgan, who boasts of his Deryni heritage, the priests of Gwynedd spread stories about Deryni atrocities and the race inexplicable powers.
High Deryni: With young King Kelson on the throne of Gwynedd, the priesthood of the Eleven Kingdoms felt its control deeply threatened. For Kelson was half Deryni - part of that race of humans gifted with extrasensory powers...a race that had ruled two centuries earlier, but was dethroned and driven underground. Now, the final battle for ultimate power was about to break into open conflict, led by the Church which equated the supernatural powers of the Deryni with witchcraft and heresy!
