Book Description

March 1 1996

The Industrial Monster has descended upon Varslaad, devouring all the arable land in its path. By royal decree, the displaced must venture into the treacherous woodland domain of a strange and secret race.

The King's lottery has determined that Twilla, young, orphaned apprentice of a renowned wisewoman, must marry -- for only the wedded can survive the terrible fate awaiting those who penetrate the primeval forest. Altered by a talisman of great power, she escapes her unwanted lot -- joining a commander's tragically blinded son on a remarkable journey from peril to peril. For they are the chosen who must rescue the vanquished of an ancient war of magicks. . . and shape the destiny of a bloody, disputed land.

2.0 out of 5 stars This book needs help. Nov. 6 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Although, the underlying story was interesting and creative, I found the writing of the story wanting. The diaglogue seemed forced and inconsistent. In addition, there were many redundancies and just plain poorly written segments. I am an avid fantasy fiction reader and have read many different books by many different authors. I truly enjoyed the basic premise of the book and its main character and that is why I finished it. But I found it an unenjoyable experience and am disappointed that it was such.

3.0 out of 5 stars Give it a chance June 12 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Most reviews of this book were to say the least bad. I however enjoyed it. it was what I like to call brain candy. YOu don't have to think hard to read it. You just enjoy it. If you like Andre Norton's works, this is not her best effort, but it is a fun and quick read to pique further interest into scifi/fantasy reading for someone just starting to develop a taste for it. BTW, I wouldn't reccommend this for a guy. This was definitely a chick book.

1.0 out of 5 stars A Painful Experience June 6 2000
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
It was only through a great act of will that I was able to make it through this book. The characters are flat, the story is predictable, and the rhymes scattered throughout are the worst in recent memory. I would not recommend this book to anyone, except possibly to convince them that if this book can get published then so can theirs!

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved it Oct. 1 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I think that anyone who says that this book isn't good is a true lover of fantasy. The plot was great and well-developed, the characters strong and the scenery fantastic. It was the first book I've read by Norton and I am now a great fan of hers! I know a good book when I read it and this was definitely one of them!
