Praise for Katharine Kerr and the Deverry novels:
‘Kerr is an excellent writer, her stories live and breathe – exciting, unpredictable, and engaging in equal measure.’
‘A fantastic plot which turns a simple story into something far more original … a cracking read … engrossing’ SFX
‘A criminally under-rated and overlooked epic fantasy sequence [with] a keen sense of history, well drawn characters, and a complex plot’ Kate Elliott, author of the Spiritwalker Trilogy
‘An unusually scholarly writer of fantasy’ TELEGRAPH
‘Much as I dislike comparing anything to The Lord of the Rings, I have to admit that on this occasion it’s justified’ INTERZONE
‘Kerr is a master of her trade…She has created a world that might very well go on for ever, and this one reader sincerely hopes it does’ VECTOR
‘An extensive and complete world, whose endlessly fascinating details grow book by book’ STARLOG

Versus Game of Thrones, Malazan and Wheel of Time this is a much happier and easier read; the world and locations are smaller, the plot less convoluted and everything follows a medium sized caste who each have their own importance in the grand scheme. It's the sort of thing you want to read when you just want to *enjoy* a book and not be taken through a mental and emotional wringer each chapter. Likewise you don't find yourself losing track of characters and locations if you put the book down for a few days. In no way does this imply Kerr's book is a lesser work - it's just written in a very different timbre.
Would definitely recommend Kerr for any fantasy fan who fancies trying something different.
Although in the grand scheme everything is linked this comes 'later' in the overall telling so if you want to understand and appreciate the key characters and events more I'd recommend reading some of her earlier novels.
