"A dagger laid against our throat."

Such is the description Prince Dar of the Weslands uses for Zakh Gral, a new fortress built by the Horsekin, the ancient enemies of his people.

To help him destroy this threat, the elven prince has called upon his allies: the dwarven folk of the northern mountains and the human men of Deverry to the east. Their leaders know that if the Westlands fall to the Horsekin, their own throats will feel that dagger next. Joining them are two powerful dragons, who have their own bitter reasons to hate the Horsekin.

But the fanatical Horsekin believe they have the most powerful ally of all, a new goddess. Alshandra's priestesses have announced that She has given the Horsekin the lands belonging to the prince--and that his people must be utterly destroyed....

About the Author:

Katharine Kerr first became involved in the field of fantasy through role-playing games, becoming so intrigued that she began writing articles for gaming magazines, and for some time was a contributing editor to Dragon magazine. This interest soon led her into the field of fantasy writing, with her first Deverry novel, Daggerspell, appearing in 1986. Since then, she has written fourteen more Deverry novels, of which The Silver Mage is the latest, as well as other fantasy and science fiction novels. Her Deverry novels have hit the London Times and the Australian bestseller lists.

Review:

"Kerr's Deverry novels are my favorite of the post-Tolkien modern fantasy novels. The landscape is utterly real, and the story is gritty, emotional, complex, an doriginal in execution and setting. This is one tale that truly needs to be told in multiple volumes." —Kaite Elliott

"One of the best sword-and-sorcery novels I have read in some time." —Andre Norton

"No one does real, live, gritty Celtic fantasy better than Katherine Kerr." —Judith Tarr
"Much as I dislike comparing anything to The Lord of the Rings, I have to admit that on this occassion, it's justified." —Interzone

"There is a solid depth to Deverry and its inhabitants that make it seem very real. [Kerr's] also a master at creating tension, then balancing it with aquiet or humorous moment." —Starlog

"Kerry fluently and gracefully limns her Celtic-based medieval world, depicting attractive and colorful men, women, and elves." —Publishers Weekly

"An epic high fantasy plot that is absolutely spellbinding." — Midwest Book Review
