Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
When a wizard's sword is stolen from a museum in present-day Scotland, FBI psychiatrist Sir Adam Sinclair is sure that the crime represents something serious. Through a mutual acquaintance, he meets and befriends Peregrine Lovat, a troubled painter who is able to ``see'' the past and future lives of his subjects. Sir Adam himself is the latest incarnation of the Adept, a spiritual force that battles evil, and he and Peregrine make a perfect team as they set out to discover who stole the sword --and why a 12th-century grave has been unearthed, freeing the revived corpse of Scotland's most noted magician, who then pk wanders into a barpage 127 in the dead of night. The sleuths determine that an evil cult seeks the magician's spell-book and hidden gold. Peregrine draws what he ``sees,'' whether it's the location of the sword or the cult gathered at the graveside. Sir Adam's own mystical powers bring him close to the cult, but closer to mortal and spiritual danger. This is a fast-moving and suspenseful tale by an unusually adroit duo, and the open ending promises more in the future. Kurtz is the author of the Deryni series, and Harris's work includes Spiral of Fire. (Mar.)
Library Journal
Sir Adam Sinclair's career as a physician masks his true profession as a magician charged with guarding the Light from those who would lead the world down the Dark Roads. Set in present-day Scotland, this collaboration between Kurtz (the Deryni series) and Harris ( Spiral of Fire , Tor, 1989) introduces a competent and likable hero. Good storytelling overcomes minor stylistic flaws in this first in a new modern fantasy series. For large libraries.
School Library Journal
YA-- Devoted Anglophiles will delight in the details of the life and times of Sir Adam Sinclair, physician, unadvertised assistant to the police in cases involving the occult, and the Adept. Along with Peregrine Lovat, an anguished patient and student of Sir Adam, readers follow the twisted path to a battle royal between forces of good and evil, between fairies and men of both stripes. This fast-paced story is slightly marred by an ending that seems devoted to capturing readers for the next title in the series, but it's fun, nonetheless.

    Excellent

    I noticed that previous entries complained about typos and other proof reading errors. Yes I noticed them. No it did not keep me from thoroughly enjoying the story. In fact I became immune to the errors and hardly noticed them because I became so immersed in the story and characters. I read 10 books or more weekly. I read occult, paranormal, fantasy and urban fantasy exclusively. This is a great story with occult suspense without romance, sparkles or relationship angst that can totally ruin a good novel. While I would have a much greater selection to choose from if I would read stories that had this usual crap in them, I can never finish them because I get so frustrated with the romantic drivel that ruins the probably otherwise good story. If you are like me and don't like the nonsense, this will be a perfect story for you. I can't wait to read the rest of the series available and hope they continue to write more in this series.

    Good book ruined by typos

    I love this series, but was disappointed by the poor quality of this ebook edition. Every chapter has spelling, punctuation, and type-setting errors. It seemed as if the technical work was done by a non-English speaker.

    Good book, atrocious proofreading/editing

    I have this book and was pleased to find it as an e-book, but could hardly read it because of the mistakes in it (punctuation strewn randomly throughout the sentences, paragraphs breaking or not breaking improperly, random capitalizations). I recommend the book, but not the e-book.

    Great Book - Poor Copy!

    It is great to have this masterpiece in e-book as this is one I enjoy re-reading yearly. The copy is of very poor quality. The cover and starting pages don't line up on screen. So many typos that are not in the original showing a total lack of proof reading or a typist who does not know English. Still, this is a page turner that will leave you wanting the next books in the series.

    more from this reviewer

    A very good read for the "occultist" believer.

    This is another way to view the interaction of man with powers above and below. Whether you believe in GOD and the devil it is a fun and interesting take on reincarnation and divine intervention.
