Overview

Acclaimed author of the dazzling cycle of fantasy novels set in Deverry and the Westlands, Katharine Kerr continues her epic saga of humanity as a shift of power on the astral plane brings change to the world of men...

The city of Cengarn is under siege. Armies both astral and physical are massing for and against the goddess Alshandra, who seeks to prevent the birth of one fate-bound child. It falls to the dweomermaster Jill and her allies to protect the child's human mother, Princess Carra--and Deverry's already foretold future--by magic and by might. But as the warrior Rhodry wings toward the battle on dragonback, he cannot know that soon he will face his ancient enemy, Alshandra's high priestess Raena, who will use any means to destroy him. Their confrontation could turn the tide of the siege--and change the fate of Deverry forever.

this one was really well-organized, and a lot of stuff happened, including some big character deaths and a lot of plot wrapup. and the reader gets to know some of the more enigmatic characters a whole lot better, and see more of the Grand Design. but i dunno, seemed a bit going-thru-the-motions to me: not sure if it was writer or reader fatigue that was at fault, just saying.

I really like this series, and this one was still good, but by now they are starting to drag a bit. 8 book is a lot for any one series where there still hasn't been much in the way of resolution!
