Katharine Kerr’s SWORD OF FIRE (DAW Hardcover; $27 will be available February 18, 2020), the first of her new epic fantasy trilogy set in the beloved, and wonderfully Celtic-inspired, kingdom of Deverry.

Its land founded by a fantastical Gallic tribe and steeped in Celtic mythology, Deverry has been adored by fans of Kerr’s bestselling Deverryseries for decades. SWORD OF FIRE opens a new series in this unforgettable setting, in which Deverry’s commoners demand reform of the kingdom’s corrupt court system. Lead heroines, Guildwoman Alyssa and Lady Dovina, undertake a life-threatening journey to ensure cruel lords face justice and a traditional, unjust government is forever changed.
