Summary

On the long roads of Deverry ride two mercenaries whose fates lie hidden deep in that of their own land. But Lord Rhodry, exiled from the dragon court of Aberwyn, has yet to discover his true parentage, and his swordmaster-lover, Jill, has barely glimpsed her awesome powers. 

Meanwhile, the ancient sorcerer Nevyn, held back by his vows from boldly intervening in their lives, can only watch and wait as Rhodry and Jill move ever closer to danger. For as the two struggle to recover the Great Stone, the mystic jewel that guides the conscience of the kingship of Deverry, malevolent dark masters are weaving terrifying spells against them - and displacing messengers of death. 

Katharine Kerr has extensively rewritten Darkspell, incorporating major changes in the text, making this her definitive edition. Here the epic saga that began with Daggerspell continues - a tale of might and magic, lust and glory, dark danger, and poignant desires that echo from Deverry's sapphire waters to its secret mountain caverns. It's a spellbinding story destined to please fantasy lovers everywhere.

A Well Told Tale

I read the first book in this series many moons ago, when it was first published, and found it difficult for some reason to get the following books, until much later, and never got around to reading them. I really wish I had. I now have all the books in this series, which consists of four books, in the Deverry series, plus two following series, ("The Westland Cycle", and "The Dragon Mage" series) which continue the Deverry chronicles, and ends up with fifteen books all told.. I really, really hope that Audible are going to make the other books in this wonderful series available. I was a little dubious about the narrator, Ruth Urquhart, when I started listening, but once she gets into the swing of things she does a really good job. If you enjoy Juliet Marillier, than you will likely enjoy these books too, as they have a similar feel to "Sevenwaters" and "Blackthorn and Grimm" (my personal favourite). If anyone at Audible is reading this PLEASE publish the rest of this series.
