    If you like fantasy, I highly recommend this series. For the longest time, the first book of the series was not in ebook format.

    A prince who becomes a wizard, fails to fulfill his destiny, by not saving his

    fiance and true love from a drowning. Now he must live hundreds of years waiting for his chance to rectify this mistake.

    As the years go by each of the characters are incarnated into new characters with new names but similar characteristics. Nevvyn the Wizard is able to see who they were as they also attempt to fulfill their destinies and each time they are reborn, they are a little better or a little more evil, depending on their last life.

    Meanwhile, there is war, love, evil, magic and adventure.

    If you like magic, fairies, dragons, dwarves, Kings and queens, pixies, moving islands, and Spirits, you will love this series.

    Here is the series in order.

    1. Daggerspell
    2. Darkspell
    3. The Bristling Wood (Dawnspell)
    4. The Dragon Revenant (Dragonspell
    5. A Time of Exile
    6. A Time of Omens
    7. Days of Blood and Fire (A Time of War)
    8. Days of Air and Darkness (A Time of Justice)
    9. The Red Wyvern
    10.The Black Raven
    11.The Fire Dragon
    12.The Gold Falcon (in progress)
    13.The Spirit Stone
    14.The Shadow Isle
    15.The Silver Mage

    I have read the entire series and still return again and again to renew my acquaintance with old friends.
    Once you start you won't want to stop like other reviewers I will say that the beginning is a little slow but
    pay attention Kerr is simply laying the groundwork for a wonderful tale. I wish you well on your journey!

    My Absolute Favorite Book

    When I was about eleven, I was scanning the shelves at the local library and my index finger randomly stopped at a copy of Daggerspell. I took it out of the shelf, looked at it, read the back, looked at it one more time, shrugged, and though 'why not?'. I had no idea what a captivating, thrilling, romantic, intricate, and absolutely addictive universe I would get dragged into. This book introduced me to the 'real' fantasy-genre, which then introduced me to other masterpieces, which I then fell deeply in love with; and by doing so making it my favorite genre of all. I can honestly say that this book is solely responsible for my hopeless addiction :)
    And not only that, but even after having read Liveship Traders Trilogy (by Robin Hobb), The Song of Ice and Fire Saga (by George R.R. Martin), and the Mistborn Trilogy (by Brandon Sanderson), Daggerspell is the one I always return to - it is still, six years later, my absolute favorite book.

    Best Fantacy I've Read in Years

    After a couple of years of fantasy hiatus, because I could not find any works that did not seem hackneyed and overdone, I found my way back to the genre with Katherine Kerr's wonderful Deverry series. The imaginative way she interlinks various reincarnations of the characters is a breath of fresh air. I had this book on my shelf for a few years, and read the beginning a few times. After I forged ahead (as the beginning is somewhat slow), I found the book just melted away. I am on the second one, and the series just gets better and better. A fantasy series worthy of reinstating my faith in the genre.
