The Legends of Camber of Culdi Trilogy
The patron sends men to find out if this descendant of the old Haldane kings is actually caamber. The characters are incredibly developed, easy to relate to, and easy to develop an affection for.
She also ccamber the psychology of rebellion, and the conflict between faithfulness towards one’s rulers and righteous rebellion against tyranny. However, the MacRories manage to escape capture, and the entire Michaeline order goes into hiding to elude Imre’s wrath. I love this series and it may well be my all-time favorite.
Camber of Culdi
I came into this book expecting to love it almost as much as I had before. And while the Deryni overlordship of the land has not been all bad, it has taken a decidedly downward turn upon the ascension of Imre, who is a horrible racist He views humans as nothing more than livestock to be worked, taxed, and killed as needed.
So that’s the background. And here readers come face-to-face with this Deryni le Originally reviewed at Bookwraiths. Cildi juxtaposes the political intrigues and jealousies found in any seat of power against the responsibility of those who govern towards those they govern. On cambee one hand, the plot machinations are to depose Deryni in favor of humans. Anscom absolves Cinhil’s religious vows, acknowledges him as the legitimate heir to the throne, and presides over his marriage to Camber’s ward.
However, a wave of human resentment in starting to surge throughout the kingdom, and a powerful Deryni lord embarks on a quest to restore the ancient line of Haldane kings.
I admit I have only really gotten into the fantasy genre within the last two years, and I am so happy that I did! I also found this novel entirely plot-driven, the characters barely fleshed out at all. Standard cast of characters including the helpful priest and nobleman willing to stand up to the king. I also think that I would have enjoyed it much more if it had been in audio as I listened to the Kelson arc via audio and really liked it.
This was good, if a bit short. These very human-like people living along side the population, normal in every way except in their extraordinary mental powers which are rumored to be magic.
nerds of a feather, flock together: Reading Deryni: Camber of Culdi
Having read this and the other Deryni novels famber a teenager growing up in the s, picking up Camber of Culdi again after all these years was both a welcome return to a childhood haunt and a trepidatious homecoming for an older, more cynical me. It was the fourth novel in her Deryni novels and the first book in her second Deryni trilogy, The Legends of Camber of Culdi.
Lists with This Book. I’m tempted to continue on through the series now, chronologically, since I’ve never read the most recent trilogy in the series. Kurtz develops in the interracial and religious conflicts well in the novel and kept me interested as a reader. This fantasy version of medieval Europe filled with royal houses, political machinations, and the unique Deryni. The storyline is so good.
Camber of Culdi by Katherine Kurtz
I still cry at certain passages and chuckle out loud at others. Or not even touching the devoted servants who will do anything for their kind masters. The implicit condemnation of gays is less frequent, but no more palatable.
After some research I discovered, to my delight, that the original six books has grown to 16 plus a couple of short story collections. This one is hard to put down, and will be an emotional roller coaster ride. I loved this when I read it many moons ago early 80s at culdu latest –so I’m giving it four stars based on foggy memories of that love.
