      I must say I'm surprised. For years I have heard that Andre Norton is one of the founders of modern sci-fi/fantasy, and so I was under the impression that her writing would be good. Instead, I was surprised to find that this is one of the first books I have read in years in which my problem is fundamentally with the *writing*. Characters weren't given enough personality to be truly likeable. No one seemed to have much in the way of humor or personal quirks. Instead, every character was either ma [...]

      I didn't feel particularly compelled by this book, but I did enjoy it. I fail to see how Queen Ysa is a bad guy. They claim she does black magic, but don't show it. All I see is a strong woman taking fairly reasonably measures to keep power, in particular to prevent her lout of a son from getting power. She should welcome Ashen as a potential heir to her.

      This was apparently originally intended as the first volume of a series (probably a tetrology). It was copyrighted in 2000; but Norton died in 2005, and her co-author (Sasha Miller) may or may not have had sufficient material to go on with the series. Because of this, the book is surprisingly inconclusive, even for a Norton work. To use her own favored metaphor of the ruthless weavers of Fate, there are loose threads all through the story, and none of them are really dealt with.Not much of a los [...]

      An overextended prologue. This should be part one of a novel, not a full length novel. It's not bad, but it's not good. If I didn't own the sequel already, I probably wouldn't buy it.The book is a little drawn out, though not as bad as some I've read. The ending is blech because it's not really an ending. It's basically the end of Part One. This may not be a drawback for you, but it's a personal pet peeve to have no resolution (or not enough) in one physical volume. If there had been a Part Two [...]

      This book was pretty good but took a long while to get into it. The first five to ten chapters are very slow with weird language used. I think the writer was trying to give a feel for his world but instead just dragged the descriptions on. Once you get about halfway it does become more interesting and you start to "get" the characters. All in all wasn't a show stopper and didn't really inspire me to read the rest of the series.

      A reread speaks volumes (pun intended) for a story. This book is another of the ones on my list that I have read multiple times, because I felt it a worthy telling of a grand story - betrayal by kin, death at the hands of one who holds power in greedy hands. An excellent story that I recommend to anyone who enjoys fantasy and mystery - or even fairy tales in their original dark form.

      Sometimes I feel Norton is a bit too detailed for me. The first couple of chapters I'm thrown into a world which I couldn't fully understand what is going on. After a bit, I get the lay of the land and I'm entranced.

      one of the very very few Andre Norton books I cannot actually say anything good about. i did not enjoy it at all. its definatly an anti-utopic but it just doesnt go well, feel right - there was nothing i enjoyed. am sorry am not more specific. i just disliked it.

    9. Debbie on said:

      I have read this book before. It was just as good this time as the first time. Andre Norton is a very good writer.
