4.0 out of 5 stars Magic and gunpowder don't mix - or do they? Dec 10 2005
By Ms. K - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Back Cover Plot Teaser: "The Russians are pushing south into the Hindu Kush, expanding their empire at the expense of the forgotten tribes that surround the British Raj. Little did they expect such resistance as they found in the fabled city of Gandhara. Little did they expect the fables to be real.

Just as little did the wisewomen of Gandhara expect their system of protection to begin to fail them after millennia of effective defense. But the Russians' new weapons don't seem to care much about magic, and the Gandharans realize they must fight fire with fire. Tamai, who has never been able to control her magical powers sufficiently to join the wisewomen, is expendable; she is sent on a mission south into the Raj to acquire the fabulous weapons known as Martini-Henry rifles. Little did the wisewomen expect the fables of the Raj to be real..."

REVIEW: This journey / quest novel brings an isolated, primitive, fantasy city of women's magic head-to-head with historical colonial India, shocking both sides. Margaret Ball employs her always-skillful characterizations and plot twists. I read it in a single sitting and loved it.
5.0 out of 5 stars Deserves Reprint Oct. 1 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Excellent book; well written, entertaining, and detailed plot. Very interesting alternate history of Northern India. Wish it was available as an audiobook. There are so many space filler books that waste a reader's time. Publishers should go to their backlists and bring back the good ones.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific book ... too bad it's out of print June 9 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I had to have amazon.com search for this book for me, since it was out of print ... but I think that it was well worth the wait! Anyone who enjoyed the sequel, Changeweaver, would certainly want to read this book, as it fills in the events preceding that story nicely.
