In this first book of an all-new Deryni trilogy, New York Times best-selling author Katherine Kurtz takes listeners back in time - before King Kelson's bride...before King Kelson's birth... when the magical Deryni blood was sought by the most powerful men and women in the kingdom of Gwynedd. Back when a man named Donal ruled over all.

Stirring tale of Gwynedd intrigue

Would you listen to In the King's Service again? Why?

Yes. It has a complex plot, and it helps to understand as much as you can.

What was one of the most memorable moments of In the King's Service?

I won't write any spoilers, but one of the key revelations occurs only a few chapters into the book. It was a time bomb I didn't expect. Really disappointed me about one of the characters, but you can't change that.

Which character – as performed by Nick Sullivan – was your favorite?

Prince Brion.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me nervous. It read almost like a mystery at some points.

Any additional comments?

The narrator seemed to be too sarcastic at points. This might be okay for some evil characters, but it doesn't suit the whole cast.
