Product description

Review

From the Back Cover

Ancient hatreds, ancient wrongs – stronger than dwarven steel, their chains bind together Rhodry Maelwaedd, the mad beserker, and his blood-sworn enemy, Raena, shape-changer and prophet of a new goddess come into the world. Both have glimpsed the great secret of the dweomer, that each soul leads many lives. Neither understands what they have seen.
They forged their chain of hatred during Deverry's civil wars, when they lived as Maddyn the bard and Lady Merodda, a dabbler in poisons and forbidden magicks. The evil that Merodda worked then claimed lives that Maddyn held dear. Not even the mighty dweomermaster Nevyn and his apprentice, Merodda's daughter Lili, could undo the harm she worked or prevent Maddyn from swearing a vengence-vow that smouldered down the centuries.

Now Rhodry and Raena are to meet again in the northern borderlands, far from the settled kingdom of Deverry. It is here that the blood-feud threatens to destroy the peaceful city of Cerr Cawnen. The elven dwoemermaster Dallandra must summon every power and ally at her disposal to break the chains of their Wyrd and save thousands of innocent lives.

'The Fire Dragon' brings to masterful conclusion Katherine Kerr's Dragon Mage trilogy.

Katherine Kerr was born in Ohio in 1944. Her fascination for all things Celtic and her extensive reading of medieval and Dark Ages history have all had a direct influence on the direction of her fantasy writing. Her novels have been published around the world and she is a best seller on both sides of the Atlantic.

Praise for Katherine Kerr and the Deverry novels:

"An unusually scholarly writer of fantasy"
THE TELEGRAPH

"Much as I dislike comparing anything to 'The Lord of the Rings', I have to admit that on this one occasion it's justified"
INTERZONE

"Kerr is a master of her trade . . . She has created a world that might very well go on forever, and this one reader sincerely hopes it does"
VECTOR

"An extensive and complete world, whose endlessly fascinating details grow book by book"
