A Time of Exile is the fifth book in the Deverry Cycle and the first book in Act two: The Westlands.


Rhodry fakes his own death, and leaves Deverry behind to live among his Westfolk kin. Meanwhile, Jill, now a powerful dweomermaster, tries to decipher the riddle of Rhodry’s rose ring. A past-life sequence shows how Nevyn’s first apprentice, Aderyn, came to live among the Westfolk as one of their Wise Ones (dweomermasters), and how his lifespan was extended.
