Summary

A medieval kingdom is thrown into chaos by rumors of the death of its liege in the final volume of the Histories of King Kelson King Kelson Haldane of Gwnyedd knows he owes much to the legendary Camber of Culdi, the most revered of the magical Deryni race. Having suppressed the rebellion that threatened to tear his realm to pieces, Kelson, himself a possessor of Deryni magic, is now dedicated to exploring the history and legacy of the man who returned the Haldane line to the throne two centuries before. But word reaches the royal court that, while on their noble quest to help restore Camber to the sainthood he was stripped of by a virulently anti-Deryni church, King Kelson and his blood brother, Dhugal, have perished. Now, for the lost king’s ambitious rival a pathway exists to the throne—and to the bedchamber of Rothana, Kelson’s intended queen. But there is more to the king’s “accidental demise” than initially meets the eye, and a powerful unseen player in this drama that no one could have ever suspected. Katherine Kurtz brilliantly concludes her acclaimed fantasy trilogy of the reign of King Kelson with The Quest for Saint Camber—ending but one remarkable chapter in her breathtaking history of the Deryni in the Middle Ages of a magnificently imagined and brilliantly constructed alternate Britain.

    In order to terraform Mars, Earth first had to transform people… The Red Planet is a harsh place, and normal humans cannot survive there during the many years of taming the planet. But a group of humans—called “volunteers,” even though they were taken from prison gulags—have been surgically altered to survive the environment. They are exiles, never again able to breathe Earth’s air. But for all their work, as they make Mars a place where normal humans can live, these altered humans are no longer suited for their own home. They are obsolete people. They sacrificed their humanity to become the first Martians. And they will not stand by as humans come to take their home.
