About the Author
Katharine Kerr lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband, his caregiver, and a cat. Although she spent her childhood in a Great Lakes industrial city, she became a confirmed Californian at age nine, when her family relocated there. She's the author of the Deverry series of epic fantasies, the Nola O'Grady series of light-hearted contemporary fantasy, the "Runemaster" duo, and a few science fiction works, mostly notably SNARE. Her website is www.deverry.com
Praise for the novels of Deverry

"A welcome return to a long-beloved world that also takes the story in a fresh direction." --Kirkus Reviews

"If you love unusual fantasy, well written plots, realistic characters, and a fresh take on magic, I think readers will love this novel. It compares with any of the great fantasy novels of the last ten years, with female characters that are independent and brave, and intriguing political maneuverings." --Duncan's Books and More

"Kerr's Deverry novels are my favorite of the post-Tolkien modern fantasy novels. The landscape is utterly real, and the story is gritty, emotional, complex, and original in execution and setting. This is one tale that truly needs to be told in multiple volumes." --Kate Elliott, author of the Crown of Stars series

"One of the best sword-and-sorcery novels I have read in some time." --Andre Norton

"No one does real, live, gritty Celtic fantasy better than Katherine Kerr." --Judith Tarr

"Kerr fluently and gracefully limns her Celtic-based medieval world." --Publishers Weekly

"An epic high fantasy plot that is absolutely spellbinding."--Midwest Book Review

"Much as I dislike comparing anything to The Lord of the Rings, I have to admit that on this occasion, it's justified." --Interzone Magazine

"The Deverry novels are rich with details--realistic characters, political viewpoints, magic, adventure, romance, the Seelie, elves, dwarves, and dragons--and truly deserves the description 'epic.'" --Fantasy Literature

"This is another of Kerr's wonderfully layered and complicated weavings of characters and their reincarnations.... The Silver Mage is an excellent end to the quartet." --Night Owl Romance

"For the readers who have been following not only the Silver Wyrm quartet, but the Deverry saga, I will say this: read every single page until there is nothing but blank pages left.... After reading The Silver Mage, you will find yourself smiling." --Fresh Fiction
