Overview

The world of Deverry: an intricate tapestry of fate, past lives, and unfathomable magic. With A Time Of Exile, Katharine Kerr opens new territory in The Deverry Saga, exploring the history of the Elcyion Lacar, the elves who inhabit the country west of Deverry. It is years since the half-elven Lord Rhodry took the throne of Aberwyn. When Rhodry's lost lover, Jill-now a powerful wizard-comes to Aberyn and tells him it's time he accepted his elven heritage, Rhodry faces the most difficult choice of his life. But with Jill's help and that of a human wizard named Aderyn who has lived for years in the westlands, Rhodry begins to understand how his life is connected not just to his own people, but to the Elcyion Lacar as well. At last, destiny begins to unravel its secrets, revealing Aderyn's true purpose among the elves-and the god' deeper design behind Rhodry's dual heritage.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Rhodry, the half-elfin Lord of Aberwyn, gives up his throne in order to come to terms with his nonhuman heritage and, in so doing, fulfills part of the destiny that has haunted him through many lifetimes. Kerr's latest novel, set in her fantasy world of Deverry, weaves together two distinct stories of love and magic in a richly detailed, intricately plotted tale. Highly recommended.
From the Publisher
"Katharine Kerr is both a good writer and a thorough Celtic scholar. Indeed, her work is beginning to invite comparison with Katherine Kurtz's massive Deryni saga."
Chicago Sun-Times
