       Additional Information  
     
      Threatened by King Kelson's trust in Duke Alaric Morgan, who boasts of his Deryni heritage, the priests of Gwynedd spread stories about Deryni atrocities and the race inexplicable powers.

    Source: Amazon.com.

    The number of Deryni was small, for they had been hounded for generations and kept their identities secret. Those who managed to retain their arcane powers concealed their background--for bitter persecution once again swept the land of Gwynedd, inspired by a raving fanatic sworn to destroy all Deryni in a final bloodbath.
