In this exploitation of the story-within-a-story device, the dwarf Garroc Ghosts-Skald, who has the dubious gift of being able to hear the voices of ghosts, appears, in the midst of the witch wars, on the doorstep of his foster son's daughter. As the woman tends him and his injured companion, Garroc relates the story of her father, Hinthan, and the quest to find and rescue a king's secret son and heir. It's a tale of heroism vs. black magic in which Garroc and his companions outwit assassins, dodge shifting alliances, and battle religious fanatics who have come to Wales with the spread of Christianity. Berberick delivers a Celtic tale rich in tradition, warmly drawn characters, and nonstop action. Readers of heroic fantasy, especially fans of Arthurian legends, will demand a sequel. Candace Smith
