The Mage's Daughter

"If Neroche falls, there will be nothing standing between Lothar and the rest of the Nine Kingdoms." Morgan knows what Miach says is nothing less than the truth; still she cannot forgive his deception. Heart and body broken, Morgan retreats to the silence of Gobhann. Miach follows, though the Kingdom is barraged by magic he can't begin to identify. He would follow Morgan to the end of the earth.

When Miach shows up at Gobhann, Morgan doesn't dare believe he has come for her. But he has, and for more reasons than her skills as a shield maiden or the magic coursing through her veins. He wants her just for herself. God knows she wants him, too, though she struggles against it -- in anger at his lies, in self-hatred at his magic and the magic that's awakened in her. In despair, her heart aches for him, though she wants to depend on none but herself and her sword. Together they set out to identity and destroy the evil that shadows not only the Nine Kingdoms, but them personally. As one, they will stand and push back the dark that threatens to overwhelm them and all they hold dear. Or they will die trying.

THE MAGE'S DAUGHTER, like its predecessor, STAR OF THE MORNING, is the best work Lynn Kurland has ever done -- and that's saying a lot. A fan favorite and bestselling author for years now, Kurland has always been at the top of the paranormal romance genre. But she's outdone herself here -- it's magical and every word rings true. I can't recommend this book highly enough.
