Katharine Kerr was born in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1944. After dropping out of Stanford University in the mid-1960's, Kerr worked in a number of low-paying jobs, including a stint at the U.S. Post Office. In 1976, a friend gave Kerr her first fantasy role-playing game and she became so intrigued with both gaming and the fantasy field that she began writing articles for gaming magazines. After working as a contributing editor for Dragon Magazine, as well as contributing to gaming modules for both TSR, Inc., and Chaos, Inc., Kerr turned her attention exclusively to fiction writing.
Kerr is best known for her historical fantasy Deverry Series novels, published by Bantam and HarperCollins. Titles include Daggerspell, Darkspell, Dawnspell: The Bristling Wood, and Dragonspell: The Southern Sea. Kerr also developed The Westlands Cycle series for HarperCollins. Among the titles of some of those novels are A Time to Exile, A Time of Omens, and Days of Blood and Fire. Some of Kerr's other science fiction novels include Polar City Blues, Palace, and Freeze Frames and she has also edited three short-story anthologies.
Katharine Kerr's richly imagined cycle of novels set in Deverry and the Westlands has earned a devoted following--and a reputation as the finest Celtic fantasy being written today. Now she returns to Deverry's war-ravaged past....
In a kingdom torn by civil war, young Lillorigga seeks to shield her dawning powers from her cruel mother Merodda's manipulation. Mistress of a magic that, untamed, could kill her, Lilli brings her terrifying visions under the kindlier tutelage of the mysterious dweomermaster, Nevyn. But soon she must choose between her own clan and the true king who fights to claim his rightful throne, between sanctuary and blood feud, loyalty and love. Little does she dream that the slaughter she invites, and the malevolence she defies, could stalk her across the ages... twisting and twining the strands of timeless destinies.
