Lynn Kurland’s trilogy of love, intrigue, and fantastic destiny continues as a female mercenary fights for her life, her future, and the one man who can save her…

Darkness in the kingdom…

Neroche is under assault by a magic that has stripped its king of his powers and unleashed nightmarish creatures in a war of evil in which Morgan of Melksham is fighting for her life. Recovering from a near-fatal attack, Morgan realizes that she must decide between two fates: that of being a simple shieldmaiden or accepting her heritage as an elven princess. If only she could ignore that she was the daughter of the perilous black mage of Ceangail…

Magic in the blood…

Duty bound to aid his king, Miach of Neroche is torn between what his responsibilities demand and what his heart desires. He is willing to risk his life to rescue Morgan from the darkness that haunts her, but he must do so at the peril of his realm.

It upsets me when I pick up a book and it is like # 3 or 4 in a series. This is what happened with this book. It is kinda difficult to catch up. However, it is a very good book and I will go back and read the ones before this one and then continue the series. Very well written and great intrigue and romance.

She (kurland) is among my fav. authers: Tamora Pierce (GOT TO READ, PEOPLE) & Hilari Bell ( GREAT) but Kurland ROCKS. I have not read her time traveling romances but I recomend 9 kingdoms to any one who likes true love and wonderusly told adventure.Oh and I read it when I was 10, but hey, I read alot of long novels. My fav characters are Miach and Morgan. Miach is a great person and i love Morgains spirit and the fact that she is AWESOME with a sword and is a type of girl i always wanted to be ( NOT the mom- is- dead- thing though. I am planing to probably be a writer myself. P.S. I am a girl
