    The Historian by Kostova- Elizabeth

    To you, perceptive reader, I bequeath my history....Late one night, exploring her father's library, a young woman finds an ancient book and a cache of yellowing letters. The letters are all addressed to "My dear and unfortunate successor," and they plunge her into a world she never dreamed of-a labyrinth where the secrets of her father's past and her mother's mysterious fate connect to an inconceivable evil hidden in the depths of history.The letters provide links to one of the darkest powers that humanity has ever known-and to a centuries-long quest to find the source of that darkness and wipe it out. It is a quest for the truth about Vlad the Impaler, the medieval ruler whose barbarous reign formed the basis of the legend of Dracula. Generations of historians have risked their reputations, their sanity, and even their lives to learn the truth about Vlad the Impaler and Dracula. Now one young woman must decide whether to take up this quest herself-to follow her father in a hunt that nearly brought him to ruin years ago, when he was a vibrant young scholar and her mother was still alive. What does the legend of Vlad the Impaler have to do with the modern world? Is it possible that the Dracula of myth truly existed-and that he has lived on, century after century, pursuing his own unknowable ends? The answers to these questions cross time and borders, as first the father and then the daughter search for clues, from dusty Ivy League libraries to Istanbul, Budapest, and the depths of Eastern Europe. In city after city, in monasteries and archives, in letters and in secret conversations, the horrible truth emerges about Vlad the Impaler's dark reign-and about a time-defying pact that may have kept his awful work alive down through the ages.Parsing obscure signs and hidden texts, reading codes worked into the fabric of medieval monastic traditions-and evading the unknown adversaries who will go to any lengths to conceal and protect Vlad's ancient powers-one woman comes ever closer to the secret of her own past and a confrontation with the very definition of evil. Elizabeth Kostova's debut novel is an adventure of monumental proportions, a relentless tale that blends fact and fantasy, history and the present, with an assurance that is almost unbearably suspenseful-and utterly unforgettable.

"This is a tale of an earlier time in the kingdom of Gwynedd, a time before the magical Deryni were persecuted as evil beings, before they were hounded nearly out of existance, before those of Deryni blood feared to let it be known. "In those days, the Deryni Council took a hand in the affairs of state, albeit secretly. There were Deryni at court and some of the lords of the land claimed Deryni heritage. "But the king, Donal Haldane, ruled over all with a casual ruthlessness. He expected much of himself, as a ruler, as a warrior, and as the father of future kings. And he expected the same of those in his service - human and Deryni alike - in spite of the web of royal intrigue that threatened to ensnare them all . . . "; 6¾" - 7¾" Tall .

Pages lightly tanned but text is clean and unmarked. A solid copy. "Camber of Culdi, most powerful of the magical Deryni race, was worried. Twelve years before, he had 'died' and assumed the form of Bishop Alister Cullen, in order to guide the human king Cinhil and ensure peace between Deryni and humans in Gwynedd. In most ways, he had been successful. "But now Cinhil was dying, leaving his sickly son Alroy, in whose name a council of regents would govern. And Camber knew those regents to be evil men, greedy for power and filled with hatred for all Deryni. Already the persecutions were beginning, with terror, rapine and genocide soon to follow. Even the Church could offer no sure refuge. "The only hope of Camber and the Council lay in a discovery by the Healer Rhys to block off all Deryni talents. So blocked, some few Deryni might go underground, undetectable as other than human. But that meant the race of Deryni could be saved only by being destroyed as Deryni! "; 6¾" - 7¾" Tall .

    Camber of Culdi (The Legends of Camber of Culdi Vol. 1) by Kurtz, Katherine

    New York: Del Rey. Good. 1985. Thirteenth Printing. Mass Market Paperback. 0345335945 . Spine a bit slanted, somewhat creased, chipping at top and base, reading crease, minor edge wear, a couple creases to ftont cover. Interior clean and unmarked. A solid copy. Camber of Culdi, one of the greatest Deryni sorcerors of his generation, wished nothing more than a quiet retirement to his family estates after a lifetime of service to the Crown of Gwynedd. Camber's faith and honor, though, would not in the end allow inaction. At once cruel, oppresive, and whimsical the Festillic usurpers of that Crown thought they had utterly destroyed the rightful heirs a century before. As the kingdom grows ever more restive under the Festillic yoke, Camber comes to find that this was not quite true, after all. In later years, Camber would be called the Defender of Humankind, Patron Saint of Deryni magic, and the restorer of the Haldane thrown. As so often happens, popular histories become distorted, often out of recognition. This is Camber's story -- at least the first volume.; 6¾" - 7¾" Tall .

Javan proved to be a formidable opponent: the Deryni-like powers bequeathed to the Haldane kings were already stirring in him. Javan was determined to claim his rightful crown and to restore justice to the kingdom. But the former Regents would stop at nothing to wrest back control of Gwynedd." .
