Camber of Culdi: Long before Camber was revered as a saint, he was a Deryni noble, one of the most respected of the magical race whose arcane skills set them apart from ordinary humans in the kingdom of Gwynedd. Suddenly, the future of Gwynedd hangs in the balance, and Camber-once adored as a saint, but now reviled as a heretic-must find a way to protect his people before everything and everyone he loves is destroyed in the all-consuming flames of intolerance and hate. Now, the land suffers under the tyranny of King Imre, whose savage oppression of the human population weighs heavily on Camber’s heart-a heart that is about to be shattered by a tragic loss that will lead him to confront the usurpers whose dark magic haunts the realm. Saint Camber: The yoke of tyranny has finally been lifted in Gwynedd, but Camber’s job remains unfinished.
