A Time Of Exile is the first book in The Westlands series - a new entry point into Kerr's magical world, and a continuation of the tale begun in The Deverry series.
A hidden history, a destiny fulfilled and a heritage rich in joy and sadness...
Many decades have passed since the half-elven Lord Rhodry took the throne of Aberwyn, but he appears to have hardly aged a year. His suspicious subjects mutter that there must be magic about him and increasingly the king wonders to himself if perhaps his time in power is drawing to a close. Ever a chancer, Rhodry conspires to stage his own death and slip away to a simpler life.
But you can never outrun your past.
When Rhodry meets his lost lover, Jill - now a powerful wizard - she urges that he finally accept his elven heritage. Torn by duty and a love long-lost, Aberwyn's ruler must face his past to forge his future.
