200 years before Kelson was king of Gwynedd, Camber of Culdi – patron of Deryni magic – watched helplessly as the Kingdoms were ruined by the Deryni rule of Imre and his incestuous sister. He could do nothing, even when his peasants were killed and his son murdered by Imre.
Then he discovered a living descendant of the old Haldane kings – a humble monk. Could this Haldane brave Imre's magic to claim the Deryni throne?
