I only wish that all of her Deryni books were available in electronic format. I was spell bound and very sleep deprived, because I couldn't put the book down. Once I came home from work, I couldn't wait to get back to the book. When it ended, I was sorry that the next instalment wasn't on hand right away.

Although only fourteen years old and of Deryni background, Kelson Haldane has become the king of Gwynedd. Already having faced a difficult struggle to gain the throne, he has an even thornier time to keep his crown. The wary Church loathes anyone with the Dernyi magic flowing in their blood let alone one wearing the crown. Kelson¿s nobles resent him on two counts being a teen and his Deryni blood.----------------- His rival monarchs also detests the upstart youth. Especially opposed to him is the ambitious King Wencit of Torenth, a sorcerer who plans to be the one sovereign ruling the eleven Kingdoms he recognizes in the teen a potentially dangerous opponent. On the plus side Kelson has the support of powerful Duke Alaric Morgan and Father Duncan McLain, although both have been excommunicated by the Church for using magic.--------------- The revision of the original Dernyi trilogy is a solid ending to a fine rewrite. The story line focuses on mostly political manipulations to either keep or dethrone Kelson. Although it behooves the audience to read the previous two tales (see DERYNI RISING and DERYNI CHECKMATE) as this is not a stand alone book, fans of the series will enjoy this more complex and in fairness convoluted version filled with new twists.-------------- Harriet Klausner

I first read all of the Deryni and Camber books when they first came out. sadly, I no longer have those copies. I have purchased most of the Deryni books again but have, so far, been unable to find them available for my Nook. The Legend of Camber is the missing series. All a must read. Katherine Kurtz marries her knowledge of the time period with her own imagination in a manner that makes you want to believe this 'reality' instead of the one you know. DaveBW3
