9780007268931: The Shadow Isle (Deverry Silver Wyrm 3)

Book fourteen of the celebrated Deverry series, an epic fantasy rooted in Celtic mythology that intricately interweaves human and elven history over several hundred years.

As the tale of Deverry and her people draws near to its close, questions will be answered and mysteries uncovered…

The wild Northlands hold many secrets, among them the mysterious dweomer island of Haen Marn, the mountain settlements of Dwarvholt, and the fortified city of Cerr Cawnen, built long ago by escaping bondmen from Deverry itself. And just who or what are the mysterious Dwgi folk?

Thanks to the Horsekin, who continue to push their religious crusade south toward the borders of the kingdom, the human beings of Deverry and their elven allies realize that the fate of the Northlands lies tangled with their own. Although the dwarven race holds strong, the island of Haen Marn has fled and Cerr Cawnen seems doomed. Only the magic of Dallandra and Valandario and the might of the powerful dragons, Arzosah and Rori, can reveal the secrets and save the Northlands from conquest.

Review:

Praise for Katharine Kerr and the Deverry novels:

‘An unusually scholarly writer of fantasy’ Telegraph

‘Much as I dislike comparing anything to The Lord of the Rings, I have to admit that on this occasion it’s justified’ Interzone

‘Kerr is a master of her trade… She has created a world that might very well go on for ever, and this one reader sincerely hopes it does.’ Vector

‘An extensive and complete world, whose endlessly fascinating details grow book by book’ Starlog

From the Back Cover:

The greatest act of magic ever seen…

When Evandar transformed the dying Rhodry Maelwaedd into a dragon, the strength of the mystical dweomer power he invoked astonished even Dallandra, his lover and a powerful mage in her own right. Now she has taken on the task of revoking the spell and setting Rhodry free of his assumed form – if she can discover how.

The secret may lie on Haen Marn, the mysterious island that disappeared from the Northlands during the First Horsekin War - if she can find it. And if she does unearth the secret, working the dweomer might kill her, just as it killed Evandar himself.

In the penultimate novel of Katharine Kerr's highly acclaimed epic fantasy series, the threads of the intricately woven tale of the land of Deverry and her people's draw together as ancient mysteries are about to be uncovered…

'An unusually scholarly writer of fantasy' Telegraph
