Long, long ago in Deverry, Lillorigga, daughter of the Boar clan and cousin to the child-king, becomes embroiled in the increasingly sinister politics at the palace of Dun Deverry. Not least among the plotters is Lilli's own mother, the enchantress Merodda. Lilli has inherited Merodda's powers, but not her taste for power. When Merodda orders the death of Lilli's foster mother, Bevyan, Lilli leaves Deverry swearing revenge. Her actions will have consequences not only in her time, but also in generations to come, as those who die are reincarnated.
‘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’

Versus Game of Thrones, Malazan and Wheel of Time this is a much happier and easier read; the world and locations are smaller, the plot less convoluted and everything follows a medium sized caste who each have their own importance in the grand scheme. It's the sort of thing you want to read when you just want to *enjoy* a book and not be taken through a mental and emotional wringer each chapter. Likewise you don't find yourself losing track of characters and locations if you put the book down for a few days. In no way does this imply Kerr's book is a lesser work - it's just written in a very different timbre.
Would definitely recommend Kerr for any fantasy fan who fancies trying something different.
Although in the grand scheme everything is linked this comes 'later' in the overall telling so if you want to understand and appreciate the key characters and events more I'd recommend reading some of her earlier novels.
