Product Description


Praise for Katharine Kerr and the Deverry novels:

‘An unusually scholarly writer of fantasy’ Telegraph

‘Much as I dislike comparing anything to The Lord of the Rings, I have to admit that on this occasion it’s justified’ Interzone

‘Kerr is a master of her trade…She has created a world that might very well go on for ever, and this one reader sincerely hopes it does’ Vector

‘An extensive and complete world, whose endlessly fascinating details grow book by book’ Starlog

Product Description

Book twelve of the celebrated Deverry series, an epic fantasy rooted in Celtic mythology that intricately interweaves human and elven history over several hundred years.

The powerful dweomermaster Nevyn has been reincarnated, but young Neb knows nothing of his previous life. Orphaned following a cholera epidemic, Neb and his younger brother arrive at the desolate farm of their last living relative and soon learn that a worse plague lurks beyond the western border of Deverry.

The savage Horsekin tribes, spurred on by their new goddess, Alshandra, are raiding the villages and taking slaves as the first step in their plans to destroy both the nomadic Westfolk and the Deverrian farmers. Neb finds love and danger as he and his soulmate Branna are drawn inexorably into a war for the survival of the kingdom itself.

Although they have powerful allies in the Westfolk dweomermasters Dallandra and Salamander, they are also facing mighty enemies, enemies that they have fought before in the past lives that they no longer remember…

Intricately interweaving human and elvish history over several hundred years, Katharine Kerr's enthralling and moving tale of extraordinary characters living their many lives through exceptional times is epic fantasy on truly a grand scale.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Gold Falcon. 6 Jan 2005
By A Customer
I know there are readers out there just as anxious as I am to read the new book from Kerr. I've been so lucky to discover that you can read parts of the work on her official internet site. So everybody, jump to it! Chapter one to six is out there!
I've high hopes for this one because at long last Nevyn and Jill is reborn together! The parts I read was exactly the Kerr I've missed for so long.
Just a tip: Read the entire series from the start.

5.0 out of 5 stars 12th Book! 16 April 2006
I've loved all the books leading up to this one and I think everyone should read this regardless of whether you are a fantasy fan or not! You'll fall in love with the characters, and find that you simply cannot put these books down!

I have read the first 11 books about 5 times each waiting for this one to come out, but everytime I read them I catch something new. I have no doubt at all that this book will be well worth the wait.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally! 6 Mar 2006
We've been waiting for this for five years, and I really hope this will be as good as the others...
I started reading this series when I was eleven, I am now nearing nineteen and they are still some of the best fantasy books around. I really recommend this series but don't start with this one...start at the beginning!

5.0 out of 5 stars love this book 27 May 2006
Wow, what is there to say. This book just rocks. It was well worth the wait. I just love it. When the last book (the fire dragon) finished i no idea of how the series would continue. But truly all those unanswered questions i had have for the main part been answered, although i would love to know what happeed to Evander.

Almost all those who were killed in the series have been once again reincarneted, even Jill and Nevyn are back. We even meet the newly turned dragon Rhodry. Although that seemed to create more qustions than it did answeres.

My favorite character the good old Salamander was there, in abundance almost cured of his madness, still chattering away.

Kerr brings almost all of the lose ends from the last 11 books together and manages to create a spectacular story of love, dwoemer and wyrd.

If you are new to this series dont be daunted by the number of books there are to read as they are all worth it. This book manages to be even better than the rest and is definately well worth reading over and over again.

I cannot wait to read the next book i have no doubt that it will be just as good and better than this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this book 21 April 2004
By A Customer
I went on Katharine Kerr's website a couple of weeks ago, and it had along extract from the beginning of the book. I read it, and it wasamazing. It sees Nevyn and Jill reborn, but the same age and - after 500years - they finally fall in love and begin to discover their dweomerpowers together. Cullyn (previously Gerraent) is also reborn, and he fallsin love with the reincarnated Jill. We see Rhodry briefly in his newdragon form and Salamander non-crazy. Even though I've only read a smallamount of it, this book promises to be one of the best so far.

5.0 out of 5 stars The plot thickens... 16 July 2006
I have been reading this series for over half my life now (that's fifteen years) and each new installment enthralls me more. There is now only one of the original circle of wyrd from Daggerspell still in the same reincarnation (and he's not exactly the same shape) but everyone is here, in one form or another, or waiting in the wings.

Salamander is still blathering, despite everything he's seen and done, and his nearest and dearest still wish to strangle him. Dalla has become a cosmic midwife, and is finding it even harder than being a real midwife (I should know). Even though Alshandra is no more, her presence still hovers like the proverbial ghost at the feast.

This is not normal fantasy - no magic swords, no mystic quests, best of all, no halfings, no they're not hobbits, really, derivative and unimaginative, moi? This is a world that drags you in, absorbs you so completely that you can feel the dust in your throat, hear the warcries and feel the fear, and KNOW you're on a western hunter's back as it bucks while Arsothy's wings beat a drum roll over your head.

If you haven't read Katherine Kerr, you should do yourself a favour, and start now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Series 18 May 2006
At last the latest in the Deverry Series by Katharine Kerr. This is number twelve in the series and for those of us who have been there from the beginning a real treat. A few old friends and lots of new ones work together to make this a great read. My only reservation for those of you who intend to read this is - do so only if you have read at least a few of the other books in the series. Believe me it is worth starting at the beginning with Daggerspell and working your way up to The Gold Falcon. You will have a summer of wonderful reading and I am going to join you because I intend to start the series all over again. It is that good. And there are two more to come The Spirit Stone and the Shadow Isle. I can hardly wait to find out what happens to Rhodry who has been transformed into a Dragon and at the end of this book is in serious trouble. Hurrah for Katherine Kerr - she hasn't let us down!

5.0 out of 5 stars At long last! 7 May 2006
Iam a keen reader of this series, so was looking forward to this book. Many of the old characters are still there but I was surprised by how much I wanted to see what happened to the reincarnated Nevyn and Jill

Got the book Saturday noon, started reading Saturday night and finished Sunday Morning.

Should be good for another four rereads at least. :-)
