Overview

In the peaceful land of the Rhiddaer, Jahdo the  ratcatcher's son stumbles upon a secret meeting  between a city council man and a dangerous,  mysterious woman. Suddenly the boy is tangled in a web of  intrigue and black magic that drags him far from  home. In the company of a blind bard, Jahdo must  travel to Deverry to unravel the evil that binds  him. But there the boy is caught up in dangers far  greater than he has ever known. Two powerful  sorcerers—one human, the other elven—are battling to  save the country from a goddess gone mad. Their  strongest ally is the mercenary soldier Rhodry  Maelwaedd, a berserker bound to both women by fate and  magic . . . and to the dragon upon whom all their  live may depend. Days Of Blood And  Fire begins an exciting new chapter in the  chronicles of Deverry and the Westlands, with a story  suited to new readers and loyal fans  alike.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This grand saga is by a wide margin the  best Celtic fantasy around."—Chicago  Sun-Times
Library Journal
A young boy and a blind bard journey to the land of Deverry, home of the ancient conquerors of their people, in fulfillment of an oath--and find themselves swept up in a war to save their ancestral enemies from a mad goddess. Set in the world of A Time of Omens ( LJ 6/15/92), this stand-alone tale features heretofore unexplored civilizations as well as characters that Deverry series fans will remember. Kerr's more complex cosmologies take a backseat to classic fantasy themes in this well-conceived introduction to an ongoing series. Recommended for most fantasy collections.
Roland Green
The seventh volume in an outstanding contemporary Celtic fantasy saga begins where "A Time of Omens" left off. A blind bard answers some of Jill's and Rhodry's questions, but these answers send Rhodry off on yet another perilous quest. The dwarfs introduced in "Time" play a large role here, and in general both spirit intervention and human folly keep the action moving. By no means a good place for starting the saga, this is, however, a superb continuation of an extended adventure that in depth and complexity is beginning to rival Jordan's "Wheel of Time" and even "Lord of the Rings".
