In this first book of an all-new Deryni trilogy, New York Times best-selling author Katherine Kurtz takes listeners back in time - before King Kelson's bride...before King Kelson's birth... when the magical Deryni blood was sought by the most powerful men and women in the kingdom of Gwynedd. Back when a man named Donal ruled over all.

Yes. It has a complex plot, and it helps to understand as much as you can.
I won't write any spoilers, but one of the key revelations occurs only a few chapters into the book. It was a time bomb I didn't expect. Really disappointed me about one of the characters, but you can't change that.
It made me nervous. It read almost like a mystery at some points.
The narrator seemed to be too sarcastic at points. This might be okay for some evil characters, but it doesn't suit the whole cast.
