I really enjoyed this series by Katherine Kurtz. I hope that the later books will also soon be available in audiobook format. Katherine Kurtz gets better with each novel in this world.

The Chronicles of the Deryni: Deryni Rising / Deryni Checkmate / High Deryni

She has an excellent grasp of court politics and intrigue. I cannot praise the narrator enough, as well. There are several more books by Ms Kurtz.

I would particularly recommend the Adept series, as well as the rest of the Deryni works, were they on Audible! Please Audible, let’s have more from this spectacular talent! I loved it when I was a teenager. I loved it again in my hihg. And now I love it in my 50s. The ending didn’t wind up the story very well.

It was like the author was under a time constraint to finish the book instead of writing a better conclusion.

I enjoyed the trilogy very much. It just went ‘kerplunk” at the end. Originally posted at Fantasy Literature. hiyh

Life’s too short to read bad books! As the third novel starts, the Church has just split over the Deryni issue. Traditionally the clergy has ceryni any sort of magic as evil, akin to the witchcraft which their Holy Scriptures clearly forbids. But, unfortunately, the Church has dealt with their fear by persecuting anyone who has any Deryni blood.

The Chronicles of the Deryni: Deryni Rising / Deryni Checkmate / High Deryni by Katherine Kurtz

Recently a more progressive minority of Church leaders has split off. This ecclesiastical unrest threatens to cause civil war at a time when Gwynedd needs to unite against outside enemies. We also discover a secret council of Deryni that works behind the scenes and hign for its own good. In fact, I thought these instances seemed more realistic than if Kurtz had staged showy sword fights.


He had the power and plenty of opportunity.

He could have saved a lot of trouble, not to mention lives, if he had done so. It felt like Katherine Kurtz hiigh out of the novel just a little too soon. What will happen with Morgan and the lady he fell in love with at first sight yuck? How will the Church deal with the Deryni issue from now on?

I want to know. Get it free with higgh trial. But the priesthood of the Eleven Kingdoms has no intention of ceding its power – even if it means inciting civil war. No Reviews are Available.
