Coulter's latest, which is part of her Song series, revolves around Merryn, the four times widowed 18-year-old subject of the curse that protects Castle Penwyth from all would-be attackers in 1278. When the king gives the castle to Sir Bishop of Lythe, he must find a way to secure it and the lady without becoming the latest victim of the curse. Anne Flosnik's narration, humorous and enticing to Coulter's fans, suffers from the alternation between Bishop's story and that of an unnamed witch and wizard in a different, unnamed time. The difficulty in keeping track of the two story lines is unlikely to draw many new listeners to the series, although fans will enjoy. E.J.F.
