About the Author

Katherine Kurtz has been writing fantasy for well over twenty-five years. She is married and lives in a renovated castle in the south of Ireland.


Alaric Morgan, the son of King Donal Haldane's advisor Kenneth Morgan and his Deryni wife Alyce, has been destined from birth to be pledged to young Brion Haldane, the heir to the throne. When unexpected circumstances force the acceleration of the four-year-old Alaric's ceremonial pledge, the uneasy coexistence between Deryni and humans is threatened. And stranger things are yet to come. Kurtz's latest entry in her Deryni series (after In the King's Service) opens up a heretofore unexplored time period in the history of the powerful race of psychics known as Deryni and the humans with whom they share the world. The author's meticulous recreation of a medieval world provides a sumptuous background for her characters' struggles to remain true to their honor and to their beliefs. A good addition to most fantasy collections, particularly where Kurtz's books are popular. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

In bestseller Kurtz's morbid second tale of her new Deryni trilogy following 2003's In the King's Service and set before the King Kelson novels King Donal Haldane is mourning the loss of his bastard son, Krispin, a boy he thought would be companion and protector to Crown Prince Brion, and hoping that Alyce and Kenneth de Morgan's toddler son, Alaric, heir to Alyce's Deryni magic, can be groomed to take Krispin's place. Bishop Oliver de Nore's brother, Septimus, was put to death by the king after Alyce used her powers to reveal that he orchestrated Krispin's killing; now Oliver is doubly motivated to accelerate the church's campaign to exterminate the Deryni, who are feared by many humans in the land of Gwynedd. Kurtz renders even the most plot-twisting demises more dreary than dramatic, which makes for terrific medieval realism but uninteresting narrative. (Dec.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

"Kurtz practically invented alternate world fantasy with her tales of the magically-gifted Deryni." -WEEKLY PRESS, PHILADELPHIA, PA
