In the kingdom of Gwynedd, the mysterious forces of magic and the superior power of the Church combine to challenge the rule of young Kelson. Now the fate of the Deryni -- a quasi-mortal race of sorcerers -- and, indeed, the fate of all the Eleven Kingdoms, rests on Kelson's ability to quash the rebellion by any means necessary . . . including the proscribed use of magic!
My First Fantasy Novel....reading for pleasure..changed my life at 11!
The first Trilogy was my introduction to Fantasy novels, and continue to be old friends to this day. Dynamic characters, faults and virtues, a backdrop one can relate to, if only, for some, atavistic in nature. Stories that inspire and live on for our lives are what one finds in these pages. Here I learned The endless Joys of Reading for its own sake and mine, writing for expression and joyful or painful outlet, and of escaping harshness and for a short time visiting new worlds, traditions, peoples, ... New everything or at least everything in a new light....the light of my votive imagination becoming a conflagration that now, over 20 years later, continues to grow with my years, and knowledge, now spanning the deepest Science of body, mind, and Universe to Metaphysics and Religion and Philosophy and now, an ordained Priest, in an order of healers, counselors, even Thanatology and working on Spiritual Psychology, for we shall never cease to explore, right?
