I really didn't enjoy reading this book, yet it was challenging. Even though there was some fighting action that kept me in suspense, I had a hard time remembering some of the characters. I would read about one family and then start reading about another family. Then, when a character tells that another person is in the family, I get confused. One reason might be that I read volume II of this book, instead of volume I. Even though I was confused, I would recommend this book to someone who likes to read about knights and learn about a 17 year old teenager who struggles to do his best job as a king.

In this book kelson finally becomes a true King. He finds out that life is far from fair, but you have to live it anyway. He takes up challenges and causes that he probably never even concidered existed before, and i must say Mrs. Kurtz puts it to paper masterfully. She manages to take the readers into the kingdom of Gwynedd, and puts you right into the action next to her main characters I have grown to know and love. She keeps us on our toes with action and twists and turns in the story, so much so that it's more like watching a movie then reading a book.

As a reader I always read series. The Deryni series is one of my favorite series! There is action in it(so much that I couldn't put it down).Mrs.Kurtz has the ability to set a plot and to take it under control, which is something many people lack. She tells the story in a way that when you sometimes compare it with your everyday life, you say well, there are many people who are stuck somewherer in life because of others(like poor Kelson). I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys fantasy books and hope that Mrs.Kurtz comes up with other series about Deryni!

I fell madly in love with Kelson Haldane from the moment I picked up 'The Bishop's Heir', the first book in this series, but this particular book is, in my opinion, the best of the trilogy about the young Haldane King. I am not a Christian, but I appreciate Kurtz's expert blending of the rich ceremony of what is obviously a parallel of the Catholic church, and Arthurian-type legend into this marvelous tale. I had no interest in heraldry before I read the trilogy, but now I am fascinated by it.

AS one of Mrs. Kurtz biggest fans, i have to say i was pleasantly surprised with the twists of this novel. With the intruduction of Dhugal as a main characters, and managing to tie him in to the "family" so nicely was simply amazing. I was glad to see further character growth and developement and was impressed with how they seem to be learning from each other(and past mistakes). I highly recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys fantasy of any kind.

Kurtz creates a fascinating medieval fantasy world in this first book in the series. Power struggles between Church and state, civil war, well developed characters, and of course, magic. If you like fantasy, magic, and political intrigue, you'll love this book. Her writing style improves with each novel she writes. I hope she's working on another Deryni series, they're one of my favorites!
