Owlknight follows on from Mercedes Lackey and Larry Dixon's two earlier novels about Darian Firkin , Owlflight and Owlsight. By now the boy who ran from barbarian invaders is both Knight of Valdemar and a Master Mage; he is governor of a small province and in love with Keisha who returns his feelings, but he still has problems and responsibilities. For one thing, he has never solved the mystery of what happened to his parents; for another, Keisha refuses to marry him lest his role as governor and hers of healer come into conflict--and there are still barbarians beyond the border and one day they will come back.
The story of how these problems are all resolved is told in a quiet tone unusual in this sort of epic fantasy. Darian has as much to look within for the solution to these issues as to struggle in the outside world, and the woodland journey in the course of which he does this is much of the time a celebration of the renewal of the human soul by the natural world.
Lackey and Dixon have found a courtly meditative way of telling an attractively simple story; Darian's growth to final maturity is inevitable, but still fascinating. --Roz Kaveney --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Final book in a glorious fantasy trilogy set in Lackey's popular world of ValdemarSee all Product Description

This book will keep you glued to your chair until you're finished and leave you with a huge grin on your face once you've done.
Having said all that... Lackey fans _will_ enjoy this book, let us make no mistake about that. I enjoyed this book, once I realised that yet again I was not going to get what I continue to hope Lackey will eventually deliver - what I know she _can_ deliver. I did not allow my disappointment to colour the rest of the book, which is straightforward quest-for-knowledge/discovery-of-purpose.Read more ›
