Review Text

From a tangled tale of magic, reincarnation, predestination, and vengeance (Daggerspell), Kerr's saga has mutated into fairly straightforward Celtic fantasy (cf. Katherine Kurtz), with the reincarnation aspect used as a springboard to tell stories of earlier epochs. Here, Lord Rhodry of Aberwyn is half-elfin and so ages very slowly; gradually his people begin to mutter, and his own son Cullyn grows impatient to rule in his own right. So when old flame Jill, former mercenary Silver Dagger, now a master of dweomer (magic), comes calling, Rhodry decides to fake his own death and go west to the elfin land of the Elcyion Lacar in search of his roots. Eventually, the wizard Aderyn, whom Rhodry knew in a previous incarnation, eventually must save Rhodry from the present-day consequences of that past association. Standard, undemanding fare for series fans. (Kirkus Reviews)show more
