I HAVE IT!  The Kindle Version is on my computer and the prolog has just been read. Great introduction of the players.
Sorry, I have to go- Chapter 1 is calling to me.

P.S. I am smiling at the Dedication- Well done ladies and gents

We can't get KK on Kindle over here. I am waiting for my hard copy to be shipped over. IT'S NOT FAIR :'(  :'(  :'(  :'(  :'(  :'(  :'(  :'(
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.

My Kindle version was delivered this morning, and my hardcover edition is en route and expected to arrive on my birthday.  So thoughtful of KK to write a novel just in time for my birthday!   ;)  ;D

Oh, wow, that IS a nice surprise!  I just got the opposite--my delivery is experiencing some sort of unexpected carrier delay due to a UPS trailer not arriving on time to pick it up sometime in the wee hours of the morning.  So my "birthday present" might arrive a bit late, and given that it was originally scheduled for a Friday delivery at my office, I probably won't get to see it until Monday at the earliest, even if it arrives on Saturday.

Since my package is being delayed in New Jersey, I'm guessing there are some weather-related issues that are causing the delivery delay.  Bah humbug, snow, sleet, and nearly freezing rain!  *sigh*

 :-\ Worries in case a previously undiscovered deryni ability has diverted Evie's copy towards the UK :D

Revanne, I'm glad to hear your copy is on its way.  Evie, hope you get it soon.

Me.... Its a perfect rainy day. I have dogs on the couch with me. A cup of hot tea, and my laptop in my hand.  I am starting to really like my Kindle version, I can make the print large, easy to read. 

Sorry, Chapter eleven is calling my name.  ;D

Mine was waiting on my desk for me to open when I got home from work.  Woo hoo!

KK wasn't kidding when she said in chat that it is a fat book.  All the better!

And what a lovely dedication.   :)

delurking for the moment

I downloaded The King's Deryni to my kindle this morning.
Hard copy arrived this afternoon (birthday/Xmas present).
Have read prologue and 2 chapters.
I think it might be the longest book to date!?!

Welcome, john.  Don't be afraid to post.  We don't bite.  :)

I haven't gotten the new book yet, but fear not, I will.
"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)

Stayed up until almost two am reading the prologue and first two chapters. Glad there is so much more of it to look forward to. =o)

And yes, welcome John. We definitely don't bite, especially not fellow Deryni fans.

No matter what book I am reading, I always start Chapter 13 with a little foreboding.  :-X

Got an email from Amazon the other day to say my copy has been sent off - now I just have to hope that the seagulls can cross the Pacific in world record time!
