    exciting, ensorcelling and enthralling fantasy saga

    Gerick can never forget his time spent as a Lord of Zhev¿Na especially the unspeakable acts he committed during that period. Freed by his father, he spends his time in the Bounded, a realm he created out of the chaos of the Breach between the world of Gondai, where everyone uses magic and the mundane world of Valleor. Out of the desert in Gondai comes the woman D¿Sanya claiming to be the daughter of King D¿Arnath who died one thousand years ago. Her reputation spreads as she heals people who are dying and the land that was destroyed in the war with the Zhev¿Na. --- The people want her to be crowned the queen and for Prince Vam¿Dar step down. He loathes doing so because he isn¿t sure if he can trust Lady D¿Sanya. He convinces Gerick and his dying father to work undercover to see if her claims are true. While Gerick spends time with her and falls a little in love with her, the world of Gondai is once more under attack by the Zhid, soulless creatures in thrall to the Lords. With the Lords dead, it becomes imperative to find out who is controlling them before another war destroys the land. Garick has an important role to play in the final battle but first he must learn and accept the truth of Lady D¿Sanya. --- This is the fourth and final book in THE BRIDGE OF D¿ARNATH saga and it ties up all the loose ends, answers all the questions readers may have and finally shows where Gerick¿s true loyalties lie once he is again exposed to the magical instrument of the dead Lords. Carol Berg has written an exciting, ensorcelling and enthralling fantasy saga on a par with The Lord of The Rings and The Sword of Shannara. --- Harriet Klausner

    Great stuff

    I am an avid reader, very picky, but an avid reader nonetheless. After all the series i have read, and it has been a many, it can be hard to find another gripping book to read. I am glad i gave this series a chance. It kept me reading one book after the other.

    Worth reading the whole series for

    I'd read the first three books of this series thinking that was the end of that when Carol Berg graciously responded to my fan-mail and let me know that there was actually a fourth book to the series. I stopped by the bookstore a few times looking for it, but finally got fed up with not finding it there and put in an order for it. This fourth book is THE BEST in the series. The first three were interesting, fun, and engrossing reads with great characters, especially strong and smart women characters. I have to admit, for the first 50-100 pages of this book, I was a little bored with the main female love interest (see cover for the picture of that character) because she was soooooo beautiful and soooo perfect and sooooo wonderful. I had to roll my eyes and wonder where the story was going. However, enter my favorite character of the whole series Jen 'Larie. She is ADORABLE in a snarky, down-to-earth, and rough-around the edges sort of way. Actually, I would have to say Jen 'Larie is one of my favorite female characters of all time (Sarah Connor takes the top spot for me). Overall, Berg really creates some beautifully multi-faceted characters and delves deep into the psychology of humanity with her books. My copy of Daughter of the Ancients is one of the most dog-eared books I have right now because I keep going back and re-reading it to see Jen 'Larie come alive again and again.

    Carol Berg Good Job!!

    Loved this book the author of this series has done a great job with her characters story lines and being able to bring out the characters personalities and I enjoy reading of the new arrival of the character Jen, who tells it like she see it, and is not one to back away from a good fight. There's a good match there! Can't wait for the next book of this series.
