Read an Excerpt
"I thank you, Davnat Ni Cinnede. But we have little time for pleasantries, for the path we must travel is a long one, and it is already late. We must prepare to leave."
"Leave? I couldn't possibly leave in the middle of the feast." Davnat frowned, more puzzled than frightened by the man's strange words. Were his wits befuddled by drink already?
"You can do whatever you wish, Davnat," came the prompt reply. "You have the power to choose. I only hope you will choose wisely."
"What choice are you speaking of?" Davnat inquired despite herself, curiosity getting the better of her as she peered into the dark hood, watching the light glint in his stormy grey eyes.
"Do you honestly mean to marry Henri de Beaumanoir?" he asked abruptly, reaching up to tug off his hood, and unclasping the brooch which held the end of his cloak together.
Davnat watched in fascination as he revealed himself. She had never seen a man so handsome. It was almost as though he were from another world. Yet oddly, even as she longed to know his name, who he was and why he had come, it was as though they had already met, in some shadowy, dark, dimly remembered time long ago. It was as though she knew all the answers to every single one of her anxious questions in an instant.
What People are Saying About This
Elegant, moving, a superb novel which I never wanted to end. Her is an author to watch out for, intelligent, sensual, definitely one to watch out for! I can't wait to read her next novel, The Wizard Woman.
Ms. Murchison has created a taut romantic fantasy with lavish characters and situations. I found myself moved to tears by the couple's plight, and the ending was unlike anything you find in the standard romances. Five stars, and a plea for more beautiful novels like this.
