I love Katherine Kerr's novels set in the world of Deverry. For me, the main action and most exciting part of the book took place in the first 200 pages. Rhodry has been kidnapped and taken to Bardek as a slave. Jill, Nevyn and Rhodry's half-brother go after him only to encounter 'The Old One' and face off against the dark Dweomer. Who will come out the other side?
