Publisher's Summary

In the kingdom of Gwynedd, the mysterious forces of magic and the superior power of the Church combine to challenge the rule of young Kelson. Now the fate of the Deryni -- a quasi-mortal race of sorcerers -- and, indeed, the fate of all the Eleven Kingdoms, rests on Kelson's ability to quash the rebellion by any means necessary...including the prescribed use of magic!
Listen to another Deryni epic.

WONDERFUL! Thank you Audible!

Though obviously her first ever novel, Katherine Kurtz captures intrigue and politics brilliantly in this trilogy. The narrator captures the essence of characters one comes to love in this audio adaptation. I have but two words for this series.

MORE PLEASE!!!!!

Deryni Rising

I have been waiting a long time for any of the Deryni books to be published on audio. Well done and thank you. Looking forward to finding more of Katherine Kurtz' books (Deryni) on audio.

DULL!!

Its not often I return a book, because I dislike the book. More often, I return a book because it has been ruined by a poor narrator. Not this time. I managed to listen to the entire book, only because I kept thinking that it would start to get interesting in a few minutes more. It didn't. The narrator just didn't have anything to work with, so his performance, as good as it might have been, just couldn't enliven a dreary, boring story. This book, and the rest of the books in this series will be returned, and I'll hopefully find something that is more entertaining.
