The Greatness that is Katherine Kerr

Daggerspell by Katherine Kerr The Silver Mage

Deep Genre is celebrating the conclusion of the epic fantasy that is Katherine Kerr’s Deverry series.

I first read Kerr’s Daggerspell when I was at school and absolutely loved loved loved it. Since then I’ve gobbled up each book and waited patiently for the next to be published. The Deverry sequence is an epic story drawing from Celtic and Gaelic mythology, mixing in medieval culture and a dash of elves, including my favourite half-elf Salamander, and culminating in 15 books, and I’m a little sad to see it end.

I still have The Shadow Isle and the final book The Silver Mage to read, and dammit, I’m going to savour them.

If you’ve never read Katherine Kerr, I urge you to give her books a try. Daggerspell is a relatively short book but delivers such a powerful punch.
