Publisher's Summary

Once again, the Kingdom of Gwynedd under young King Kelson found itself facing the horror of war between the Church and the Deryni. As the Pretender Queen plotted to free Meara from Gwynedd's control, and the ex-Archbishop hatched a devious plan, it looked like the peace of Gwynedd was to be a thing of the past.

A good book ruined

I've read this book and all of Kurtz's Deryni books many times. This narrator could easily ruin it for me. He o-ver e-nun-ci-ates, which would be good for some readers, I guess, but not for me.

Good book; terrible reading

I've been a lifelong fan of Katherine Kurtz's Deryni novels, so I was excited to try the audio version of this first book in her "Histories of King Kelson" series. Unfortunately, the reading by Nick Sullivan was very nearly intolerable. In the course of this book, he badly overenunciates, pronounces both Latin and Scots-equivalent words incorrectly, and even makes mistakes in which accent goes with which character. The worst, in my opinion, though, is the awful, growly voice he chooses for the crucial character of Morgan. I simply goggle at the fact that the rest of this series is also read by him. What a travesty!

Nonetheless, I love her work so well that I am willing to listen through the other books... But only if I can get my library to stock them, so I don't have to pay more of my own good money in order to get to the last and most recent book in the series, "The Bride of King Kelson," which I haven't yet read. I must say, I will feel a bit guilty at recommending them to my library, though, as terrible as the reading is. :( Still, for those who cannot read with their eyes, a bad performance of her books is still probably better than no performance at all.

Buyer beware.
