Star of the Morning

Star of the Morning (Nine Kingdoms, Book 1) Star of the Morning by Lynn Kurland

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I was excited to read this book. The last few LK books I read were so "done" - Ghosts. Time travel. Witches. I was excited to see a book by her about something other. This book did not leave me disappointed. It was a little slow on the action scenes, but I thought the romance story was light enough to not take over the book. A great fantasy story. I look forward to reading the next two books in the series.

Pub. Date: December 2006

Series: Nine Kingdoms Book 1

Synopsis: Darkness covers the north, since the black mage has begun his assault on the kingdom of Neroche. Legend has it that only the two magical swords held by Neroche's king can defeat the mage. Now the fate of the Nine Kingdoms rests in the hands of a woman destined to wield one of those blades...
In this land of dragons and mages, warrior maids and magical swords, nothing is as it seems. And Morgan will find that the magic in her blood brings her troubles she cannot face with a sword-and a love more powerful than she has ever imagined.
