Library Journal
The death of King Cinhil Haldane gives rise to the rule of a corrupt group of Regents who plan to exterminate the Deryni sorcerers. Against this backdrop of witch-hunts and treachery, a young woman, the daughter of the enigmatic Camber of Culdi, searches for a way to free her father's spirit from the threshhold of death. Fans of the author's previous Deryni series titles will enjoy this latest excursion into the history of the lands of Gwynedd. Recommended for readers of medieval fantasy.-- JC
