Part 1 of a Trilogy. Part 2 and 3 are "The Kings Justice" and "The Quest for Saint Camber". Excellent story if you finish to the end. This is Volume I in "The Histories of King Kelson". Kurtz keeps bringing all the pieces together time and time again. Complex tale but the story never gets lost.

Ms. Kurtz knows a thing or two - namely, medieval history, and how to use it to craft a suspenseful fantasy.

Caitrin, Pretender Queen of MEara was plotting to free Meara from its control by Gwynedd and make it an independant kingdom.

Ex-Archbishop Loris was once again free from his prison. To him and the fanatics of the Church, the strange, magical powers of the Deryni were evil witchcraft. He is conspiring to exterminate half-Deryni King Kelson and all his Deryni friends.
