Heralding a new series within the Westlands Cycle, The Red Wyvern is an epic tale of magic, warfare and love – fantasy at its best.
A new chapter of the history of the kingdom of Deverry – an ideal starting point for newcomers to Katharine Kerr’s gorgeous epic; and a satisfying continuation of the saga for those readers who have followed the series through its previous incarnations.
In Cengarn, Rhodry of the silver daggers – half-elven, half-human – is beset by strange dreams. A dark-haired enchantress, the Raven Woman, is haunting his sleep, and he can find no release, even in the arms of Dallandra, his lover. Little does he know that his feud with the Raven Woman goes back over three hundred years, to a time when the very throne of Deverry stood under threat of civil war.

Long, long ago in Deverry, Lillorigga, daughter of the Boar clan and cousin to the child-king, becomes embroiled in the increasingly sinister politics at the palace of Dun Deverry. Not least among the plotters is Lilli's own mother, the enchantress Merodda. Lilli has inherited Merodda's powers, but not her taste for power. When Merodda orders the death of Lilli's foster mother, Bevyan, Lilli leaves Deverry swearing revenge. Her actions will have consequences not only in her time, but also in generations to come, as those who die are reincarnated.Review:
‘An unusually scholarly writer of fantasy.’
‘Much as I dislike comparing anything to THE LORD OF THE RINGS, I have to admit that on this occasion it’s justified.’
‘An extensive and complete world, whose endlessly fascinating details grow book by book.’
