Publisher Description

“This grand saga is by a wide margin the best Celtic fantasy around.”—Chicago Sun-Times

Even as a young girl, Jill was a favorite of the magical, mysterious Wildfolk, who appeared to her from their invisible  realm. Little did she know her extraordinary friends represented but a glimpse of a forgotten past and a fateful future. Four hundred years—and many lifetimes—ago, one selfish young lord caused the death of two innocent lovers. Then and there he  vowed never to rest until he'd rightened that  wrong-and laid the foundation for the lives of Jill and all those whom she would hold dear: her father, the mercenary soldier Cullyn; the exiled  berserker Rhodry Maelwaedd; and the ancient and powerful herbman Nevyn, all bound in a struggle against  darkness. . . and a quest to fulfill the destinies determined centuries ago.

Here in this newly revised edition comes the incredible novel that began one of the best-loved fantasy seers in recent  years—a tale of bold adventure and timeless love, perilous battle and pure magic. For long-standing fans of Deverry and those who have yet to experience this exciting series, Daggerspell is a rare and special treat.

Great start to such a fantastic series.

Disappointing and a slow read

I've enjoyed other books from this author and am surprised. I wanted to like this book. I kept waiting for it to pick up pace and soar. If you don't want to ruin the plot, read no further.

Daggerspell required dedicated slogging through a relatively simple plot contorted by popping in and out of time periods to watch the same characters' souls go through the same painful plot/mistakes over and over until finally, finally redemption is earned. If you enjoyed Groundhog Day, movie with Bill Murray and Andi MacDowell, maybe...maybe you'll like this book. Honestly though? I'm hesitant to say that since I like Groundhog day--even if it is a little slow.
