For ten years, the noblewoman Seriana lived in exile, believing her husband Karon was dead, executed for practicing sorcery. But now she learns his soul has been anchored to this world by magic. He has been restored to life-though his memories of Seri are gone. When Seri's nephew is kidnapped-and a dark family secret comes to light-the two strangers will have to join together to defeat the evil Lords of Zhev'Na, who want to destroy both this world and the parallel magic realm that lies beyond.

The second book in Carol Berg's four-part series THE BRIDGE OF D'ARNATH is GUARDIANS OF THE KEEP. Initially dealing with domestic life, it does not start with the bang of the first book, but within a few chapters it becomes just as powerful and just as good an example of superb fantasy.
The three evil lords remain. To keep them at bay in their parallel world, Prince D'Natheil must be in good health to guard the magical bridge. Unfortunately the battle at the end of the first book has left him in a weakened condition with a loss of memory severe enough that the council of preceptors questions his identity. They want to examine him, but it would be dangerous to fool around with the memory of the person responsible for the safety of the world. Especially when at least one of the preceptors has been conspiring with the evil lords.
Though that may not seem a particularly interesting theme, the author expands it into an excellent yarn. Partly because her modern prose...
Just finished this book today. I love the characters, the writing, the story. I am going to jump right into the third book. I think part of the reason I like these books is that even though things keep going bad, there is always hope for them. (Or at least I hope there will be). Each character has his purpose and I actually found that I liked a character with a smaller part very much. If you like Carol Berg's style of books, you should like this one too.
I just finished this book while on lunch break today and I simply cannot wait to start the third tonight!
It surprises me that some of the reviewers liked the first book better and actually thought this book was slower than the first. I was just the opposite. I really enjoyed this book MUCH more than the first and thought it was fast paced and exciting. I had problems putting it down! The first book was viewed (first person) through the eyes of only one character (Seri) and this one was viewed first person through the eyes of many. I enjoyed "seeing" all the characters and their respective views.
Thank you Carol Berg!
