A Royal’s freedom, the gift of magic and stolen power…
Exiled from his brother's court, Lord Rhodry has found a life for himself on the road with wandering mercenaries, the Silver Daggers. The going is hard, but Jill, a young master of sword and magic, is with him, and as they journey across Deverry’s long roads, feelings between warrior and lord deepen.
But before love can truly blossom, Jill and Rhodry are drawn into a web of enchantment and mortal danger. The Great Stone of the West, a magical jewel that guides the conscience of kings, has been stolen. When Jill stumbles across the Stone, she draws the attention of the Dark Brotherhood – evil sorcerers who will hunt her with the darkest magics and messengers of death.
Darkspell is the second book in the Deverry series. Prepare to be spellbound by a sparkling fantasy classic: a tale of adventure and timeless love, perilous battle and pure magic.
