The world of Deverry: an intricate tapestry of fate, past lives, and unfathomable magic. With A Time Of Exile, Katharine Kerr opens new territory in The Deverry Saga, exploring the history of the Elcyion Lacar, the elves who inhabit the country west of Deverry.

But with Jill's help and that of a human wizard named Aderyn who has lived for years in the westlands, Rhodry begins to understand how his life is connected not just to his own people, but to the Elcyion Lacar as well. At last, destiny begins to unravel its secrets, revealing Aderyn's true purpose among the elves-and the god' deeper design behind Rhodry's dual heritage.… (more)

Aderyn and Dallandra's story, Rhodry's return to the elves and how his wyrd is tied to wildfolk in past lives. Jill pops in and out to assist. A lot of things going on, this book really feels more like a lot of prep and laying the background for events to come in future books.

Still loving these

This series keeps getting better. I am looking forward to seeing the dragon in later books, and possibly a hippogriff. ( )

Iniziato quando ero ancora poco più che adolescente il Ciclo di Deverry mi ha appassionato tantissimo, ampliando e modificando le mie idee del fantasy all'epoca ancorate ad un classico (ed amatissimo) Tolkeniano.
In Italiano non si vede ancora la fine del ciclo con gli ultimi tre libri ancora non tradotti, ma il tutto, malgrado la lunghezza infinita di 14 libri (dei quali appunto solo 11 per adesso tradotti) è di una tale epicità che la lettura ne è altamente consigliata agli amanti del genere. ( )

Primo volume della seconda tetralogia di Deverry, il romanzo soffre di un po’ di stanchezza, dovuta soprattutto al lungo flashback che sebbene chiarifichi alcuni punti oscuri della saga e getti sicuramente le basi per sviluppi futuri, risulta pesante e noioso. ( )
