The always awe-inspiring Kurland kicks off this latest installment of her Nine Kingdoms series by focusing on Rùnach of Ceangail, who is wounded, powerless and without magic. Kurland’s heroine is hampered by a nearly complete lack of knowledge of the world around her, and her hero wants nothing but an unremarkable life … but there’s no chance of that! Through Dreamspinner, Kurland explores the beginnings of a new quest that will be filled with ample quantities of adventure, magic and peril!
Since she was a small child, Aisling of Bruadair has been consigned to a life as a weaver’s apprentice. Aisling has dreamed of escaping her lot, but she never envisioned being forced on a quest to save her kingdom. Aisling must travel to the opposite end of the world, find an assassin and bring him back to force a usurper off the throne. If she fails she will die. Elven Prince Rùnach of Ceangail, whose magic was stolen by his father, has decided that he will become a hired swordsman. On his way to train with Scrymgeour Weger, Rùnach stumbles across Aisling masquerading as a boy. Intrigued, he assists her, but their alliance is attracting dangerous, unwanted attention. (BERKLEY, Jan., 384 pp., $15.00)
