Om författaren

Katharine Kerr was born in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1944. Her maiden name was Katharine Nancy Brahtin. After dropping out of Stanford University in the mid-1960s, Kerr worked in a number of low-paying jobs, including a stint at the U.S. Post Office. In 1976, a friend gave Kerr her first fantasy visa mer role-playing game and she became so intrigued with both gaming and the fantasy field that she began writing articles for gaming magazines. After working as a contributing editor for Dragon Magazine, as well as contributing to gaming modules for both TSR, Inc., and Chaos, Inc., Kerr turned her attention exclusively to fiction writing. Kerr is best known for her historical fantasy Deverry Series novels, published by Bantam and HarperCollins. Titles include Daggerspell, Darkspell, Dawnspell: The Bristling Wood, and Dragonspell: The Southern Sea. Kerr also developed The Westlands Cycle series for HarperCollins. Among the titles of some of those novels are A Time to Exile, A Time of Omens, and Days of Blood and Fire. Some of Kerr's other science fiction novels include Polar City Blues, Palace, and Freeze Frames and she has also edited three short-story anthologies. (Bowker Author Biography) visa färre

Allmänna fakta



I don't have a lot of patience for high fantasy, especially historically accurate medieval Welsh fantasy. Just not my cup of tea.

Resurrection, is the same story as the chapter with that name in the novel Freeze Frames

Second in the Nola O'Grady books, where she lives in San Francisco with her motley extended Irish family and her new, Israeli lover/bodyguard.

The story follows on from book 1, which if you havent read (like me) it's a little hard to catch up on, but generally the story is ok. She is following up in chasing the missing members of the coven that was broken up in Book 1. Meanwhile there are entities coming over from an alternate dimension, her brother is trying to get his new radioactive girlfriend over from this alternate dimension (where she has been working as a prostitute), a new business partner of her brother in law is blackmailing him and is in far too deep. There's also a small mystery of Nola's missing Irish father, who in this book she finds out why he's missing, that he's not really as dead as everyone thought, and some of the reasons he left Ireland in the first place.

Nola has psychic powers, which now places her at the head of a really really secret agency. She is following up the other people from the coven she broke up in book 1, an investigation that leads her to more deaths, more visitations and surprises from alternate worlds. I dont know the background behind the "not wanting to eat" issue - she's not anorexic, just never seems to be hungry and is always being told to eat - and there are detail descriptions of what she's wearing (I dont know why). They seem to change clothes more often than they eat, which is a little strange (and of course, no visits to the bathroom)!

Heerlijke serie met fijne karakters. Interessante wereld met Gallische invloeden. De incarnaties maken het wat lastig soms om het verhaal te volgen, maar het maakt het ook weer meteen erg intrigerend.
