      I discovered Katherine Kurtz when my dad bought me her original Deryni series for Christmas ages ago and I realized I could OWN the books I was reading from the library a grave mistake on my dad s part grin In any case, I loved the series and devoured all of the books then currently out by Katherine Kurtz and anything that was coming out shortly after that Then Kurtz turned to other non Deryni novels and I wasn t as interested in those, so I ended up not reading anything of hers for a while Hap [...]

      3.5Katherine Kurtz published Deryni Rising, her first novel about young King Kelson, in 1970 and published The Quest for Saint Camber, which seemed to be the final story in the HISTORIES OF KING KELSON in 1986 Then, eleven years later, she published King Kelson s Bride, a story that ties up many loose ends and answers a few questions about how life turned out for Kelson Haldane There will be spoilers for the previous books here, so you may want to skip this review until you ve read up to this po [...]

      I read Kurtz s most recent book, King Kelson s Bride in addition to The Chronicle of the Deryni and The Histories of King Kelson I enjoyed this book but did not feel the same sense of innocence Some parts of the story felt as though they had been overly tampered with by publishing editor Still, it was a fun read.My son bought me a hardbound version of The Chronicle of the Deryni for Christmas It was a heartfelt gift as the books were the ones I read while I was on bed rest waiting his arrival I [...]

      A sweet well written book about the marriage of King Kelson and his bride Araxie.If you like J.K Rawling s writing, with her magical Harry Potter series You will like Katherine Kurtz s writings about the Deryni with the use of their magic Katherine does and excellent job with her characters They have a constant depth to them and never stary from the way she has portrayed them She is very descrptive in her scenes.I would recommend this book to anyone that likes fantasy.It is a good clean read.

      When I read this years ago, I thought this was dull But on re reading, it had far action than I remembered and I enjoyed seeing some favorite characters from years back receive a happy ending.

    7. Andrea on said:

      A good end to Kelson s story This is what we were missing after the end of the last series, and I think it wraps up nicely.

      Really enjoyed this book It was a nice change to have a happy ending.

      Decades ago I devoured Kurtz s Deryni series The first trilogy captivated me, then the second trilogy and then the prequel trilogy and then, there I was, in the mid 1990 s having read all she would write on her land of Gwynedd It was a harsh reality, the second trilogy ended on a rather sad note and with too many loose ends I checked the bookstore and library shelves for a new volume for years I m not sure if I knew this book existed until I found in while updating my reading list for this datab [...]

      While still struggling to mend his heart after it suffered a bad break with Rothana, King Kelson must still continue searching for a bride and secure the Haldane line to the throne He must also be sure to keep the Torenthi heir alive while doing it Kelson must face several political struggles in Gwynedd, without neglecting his personal struggles with his heart A tough task to be sure.This is a very touching, and well written novel that is a very fast read I found it extremely hard to put down Th [...]

      I have been a loyal Deryni fan since the early 70s started the chronicles with Deryni Rising up to the sixteenth volume The King s Deryni published last year 2014 After reading the Legends of Camber of Culdi trilogy, I merely bought subsequent Deryni books and put them on the shelf to read later In the 2010s I picked up some I had missed from used book sellers Having spare time on my hands I resumed reading unread books in chronological order rather than the order in which they were published N [...]

      Some Happy Endings For a ChangeOne if the better in the series, we get to visit some other locations and be introduced to the different cultures There is still intrigue and mayhem, but light hearted moments and some happy endings A good end to this particular series in the whole.

      Namesake aside, I liked this book for the simple fact that Kelson finally gets the girl She doesn t a die, b think he died, or c marry someone because of she thinks he died The fact that she is quite able to take care of herself makes this final choice The resolution of his mother s magic phobia is nice I enjoyed seeing the people of Torenth as than a bunch of power mad mages bent on grabbing Gwynedd back from Kelson and his court The capital city was breathtaking makes me wonder if I find one [...]

    15. Rich on said:

      I think Kurtz wanted to give the story cycle she began with Bishop s Heir a happy ending The problem is that she spent so much time focusing on the details clothing the architecture of the period, etc that she never really creates any serious tension There are a couple of times at the investiture of Liam, and near the end of the book where there is some sense of danger However the only sense of danger that you feel comes in the middle of the book at Liam s investiture For the rest of the book it [...]

      One day, working at Borders, I was on my out the door after my shift, and saw this book on the front table I literally froze in my tracks and shrieked, King Kelson s BRIDE Why didn t anyone tell me I bought it immediately, I had The last book Kurtz had written about Kelson was what Ten years old And in it he had become politically and magically powerful, but was also incredibly lonely Technically sort of widowed, with the love of his life in a convent, Kelson s personal life was a shambles And [...]

    17. Jen526 on said:

      I think this book works really well as a conclusion to the whole Kelson timeline Almost every dangling thread from previous events books gets brought to a satisfactory conclusion, and everyone gets a well deserved and believable happily ever after As a long time fan, I was very pleased with how well everything fell into place return return This is not, however, a book for readers not already invested in the Deryni universe Without the backstory, the book will be absolutely pointless, as it doesn [...]

      This is just not nearly as good as her other stuff.It felt much as though the primary characters had done nothing short of sit in a dark hole for the three years between their last appearance and now They had not changed or grown in those years I got very tired of mopey Kelson, when his emotions felt contrived to begin with.Things that felt resolved in previous books were miraculously unresolved in this one Rules about magic that have been previously declared inviolable were suddenly questionabl [...]

      I completed this book last night Unfortunately, it was long on detail and short on subject, with the pace only picking up toward the end, when it seemed as if the author was trying to finish the story.I was surprised it had a happy ending, at least for the main characters Many of the Camber books end well but not happily There were several weddings planned, and I was expecting that all would be stopped and the brides killed or hurt or rejected or something that didn t really add to the overall s [...]

      Liam of Torenth who has been fostered at Gwynnedd is ready to go home and Kelson s advisers are sure that Torenthi advisers will be trying to ensure Liam s successor which may be his mother or manipulative uncles if they overthrow Liam Rothana will not marry Kelson since she feels she betrayed him with Conall and the prime candidate of the Council of Culdi has romantic interests in one of Kelson s nobles Kelson must assure the fidelity of Torenth, resolve the tensions in Meara, and secure his ow [...]

    21. Rebecca Huston on said:

      IMHO, this is the weakest of Katherine Kurtz s Deryni novels I suspect that she wrote this one to get everyone to shut the hell up as to whom King Kelson was going to marry I was expecting a grand romance What I got was a limp, sad sack story that went over too many plot devices from previous novels BOOOOOO Not recommended For the complete review, please go here epinions content_30427

    22. Katherine on said:

      I think Kurtz s several years hiatus from writing Deryni books was not a good idea I remember them as being terribly angst filled, but this volume is light, almost annoyingly gossipy King Kelson finds and marries his bride, against a backdrop of politicking, king crowning, and matchmaking The villains are disappointingly flat The previous Deryni books were overwhelmingly cruel to the heroes, which made them tense and heartbreaking reading this one doesn t match with the others at all.

    23. Gene Elig on said:

      I have found that all the books in the Dierne Series were well written with a deep story The best thing I found about the books is that Kurtz makes you feel for her characters, and by the time you have read the second of these books you feel that you not only know the characters, but have a visceral reation to the things that happen to them as if they were old friends.

    24. Laura on said:

      Adoro le saghe dei Deryni della Kurtz, le atmosfere che permeano i suoi libri, i personaggi a cui immancabilmente mi affeziono e la bellissima prosa con cui sono scritti unica pecca in Italia sono stati tradotti e pubblicati solo i primi tre ed anche all estero molti sono difficili da reperire.

    25. Ruchel on said:

      I like this book, but it takes a while to get into it The second and 15th reads are always better than the first Not all her books get this complex and surrounded by strange names that all sound the same until they blur and you re confused thus the second reads But the story is good.

      Katherine Kurtz at her worst The writing was terrible, the plot and characters unremarkable A couple chapters into reading this book, and I realized I was done with it forever.

      At long lastI am so glad I found this book I thought Nelson would never be happy on a personal level Kurtz tied up the loose ends nicely.
