Even as a young girl,  Jill was a favorite of the magical, mysterious  Wildfolk, who appeared to her from their invisible  realm. Little did she know her extraordinary  friends represented but a glimpse of a forgotten past  and a fateful future. Four hundred years-and many  lifetimes-ago, one selfish young lord caused the  death of two innocent lovers. Then and there he  vowed never to rest until he'd rightened that  wrong-and laid the foundation for the lives of Jill  and all those whom she would hold dear: her  father, the mercenary soldier Cullyn; the exiled  berserker Rhodry Maelwaedd; and the ancient and  powerful herbman Nevyn, all bound in a struggle against  darkness. . . and a quest to fulfill the  destinies determined centuries ago. Here in this newly  revised edition comes the incredible novel that  began one of the best-loved fantasy seers in recent  years--a tale of bold adventure and timeless  love, perilous battle and pure magic. For  long-standing fans of Deverry and those who have yet to  experience this exciting series,   Daggerspell is a rare and special treat.

Really enjoyed this book!
Loved the story plot.
And I'm very glad that I had the holiday time to finish it.

Book one in an entertaining series about an old sorcerer who lives to over 400 years old to correct a tragic decision when he was a young prince.

A word of caution: this long series/saga deals with mature graphic content, such as incestuous sex, violent rape and dark magic.

If you love fantasy and you haven't read Katharine Kerr, then you haven't truly read fantasy. Ever since I picked up this book Daggerspell, the first book in the Deverry Saga, I can hardly wait to get my hands on the next book in the series. These books rate among my top five fantasy series along with Robert Jordan, Brandon Sanderson and David B. Coe.
