"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.
In the kingdom of Neroche, nightmarish creatures have been
unleashed as weapons in a war of evil. Morgan the
mercenary, daughter of a treacherous black mage, must
fight against them - as well as for her very life.
Miach of Neroche would risk his own life to save Morgan's,
but he must do so at the peril of the realm, forcing
dangerous choices in the deadliest of quests.
