    No Idea What This Book IsBut I know it s not Witch World The author is obviously skilled but never evoked any sort of real connection to Andre Norton s excellent stories Disappointing.

  5. Linda Johns says:

    Like all of her books this is wonderful.I am 69 and been reading and rereading books by Andre Norton most of my life Her stories never go stale or out of date.

  6. Randall Hunt says:

    Written solely by Lyn McConchie, this book has neither the style, nor the tone of Witch World books written by Andre Norton Prepare to be disappointed.

  7. Septentrion says:

    Some pagers felt like fillers A pity Otherwise, the story was agreeable to read and ties the lose ends from Ciara s Song.

  8. Charlie says:

    A good thrilling book Full of adventure, tretuchury and love Has a few mature sections but nothing too bad.Would recomend to most teens or adults.
