Product Description

Product Description

Two outstanding and moving novels concluding Andre Norton's legendary Moonsinger series together in one volume.

In Flight to Yiktor, Farree is a hunchback orphan in the slum of a tough, lawless world on the edge of the known galaxy. His only friend? A war-beast rescued from starvation and the fighting pits with whom he has a telepathic connection.

In Dare to Go A-Hunting, Farree has discovered a portion of his true heritage as one of the ancient Little People, the Faery Folk, of legend—but so far as he knows, he is the only one of his kind to survive. Then his compatriots, star-traveler Krip Vorlund and psychic sorceress Lady Maelen, the Moonsinger, find a clue on a distant frontier outpost world which points to the location of Farree's birthplace. But others are looking for that place, as well. And those others do not mean the inhabitants well. Now Farree must find and defend a family and people he does not remember, but who hold the key to his own strange destiny.

This follow-up volume to Moonsinger completes Andre Norton's legendary Moonsinger saga.

At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management).

Called "a superb talent" by The New York Times, Andre Norton was a legend in science fiction, and one of our greatest storytellers. She wrote science fiction novels of very high quality for nearly five decades, beginning with the now-classic novel Star Man's Son in 1952. Many of today's top writers, including C.J. Cherryh and Joan D. Vinge, have cited her as a primary influence on their own work. She was Guest of Honor at the 1989 World Science Fiction Convention, and received the Grand Master award from the Science Fiction Writers of America and the Lifetime Achievement Award of the World Fantasy Convention. Astoundingly prolific, with over thirty books in her celebrated "Witch World" series alone, she introduced three generations of SF readers to SF and fantasy, both through her critically acclaimed YA novels and her adult works, and remains today as one of the most popular authors in both fields.

Andre introduced me to science fantasy when I was a teenager and I have never looked back. I know when I get one of her books I am in for a good read.

4.0 out of 5 stars exciting books three and four in the super Moonsinger saga 1 Nov 2011
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
"Flight to Yiktor." In the lawless slums of the Limits, Farree the hunchback alien has no friends except for Togger the war-beast he telepathically communicates with. Lady Maelen the psychic Moonsinger asks his name and he replies Dung. She insists he is Farree who has no idea how he ended up on this lethal planet. Maelen and Free Trader Krip Vorland take Farree and Togger with them as they journey to her planet Yiktor while enemies pursue them.

"Dare to Go a-Hunting." Farree has come a long way since Lady Maelen rescued him as his wings came out of his misshapen body. Krip has found wings like Farree's in a marketplace. With his friends, Farree begins his journey to find any of his species.

This is a reprint of the exciting books three and four in the super Moonsinger saga which focuses more on Farree than on the stars of the first two tales (see Moon of Three Rings and Exiles of the Stars) although they play key roles. The fast-paced Flight in Yiktor feels like a transition tale that is enhanced by having the fascinating conclusion Dare to Go a-Hunting (with ties to some other Andre Norton outer space thrillers) in the same omnibus collection although that also shows a rather radical change in the hero's personality. Still these terrific two tales are entertaining thrillers.

4.0 out of 5 stars great story, but there were lots of "typos" 18 Mar 2014
By Barbara Burnett - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I think they probably scanned a hard copy to create this digital version, and their OCR software made lots of mistakes (for example reading 'duties' and interpreting it as 'dudes' and reading 'any' and substituting 'and'). A human proofreader would have caught these mistakes. This kind of error makes it difficult to read if you're not familiar with the story already.

5.0 out of 5 stars Farree Searches for Home 28 Feb 2012
By Arthur W. Jordin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Moonsinger's Quest (2011) is the second SF omnibus edition in this series, following Moonsinger. It contains two novels: Flight in Yiktor and Dare to Go A-Hunting. The initial work in this sequences is Moon of Three Rings.

Flight in Yiktor (1986) is the third SF novel in this series. Dung is standing near the Russtif tent listening to the agony in Toggor's mind. The man is using a prod on the smux, trying to make him fight. Toggor only curls up more tightly.

As Dung is feeling the fear and pain from Togger, two pairs of space boots stop near him. He hears someone speaking in his mind, saying there is nothing to fear. Then Maelen asks him what is going on.

He tells her that Russtif wants the smux to fight and Togger is refusing. He tells her that the smux is weak from the cold and pain. She comments to Krip that they have found what they seek.

Krip leads the way into the tent. Maelen puts her hand on Dung's back and he is impelled behind Krip. When they enter the tent, the beastmerchant drops the prod and hides the cage with his bulk.

Maelen asks Russtif what the price is for Togger. The man says that he is not for sale, but Maelen and Krip get agreement to buy the smux for two stellars. Krip pays the man and they leave the tent. However, they leave behind mental instruction on how to open the cages.

Togger lets himself out of his cage and grabs hold of Dung's vest. The scavenger cups his hands around the smux and offers him to Krip. The spaceman tells him to take good care of the smux.

Maelen asks Dung for his name, but hears another name in his mind. She refuses to call him Dung, but calls him Farree instead. Krip tries to get Farree to quit using the title Lord-One and just call him Krip, but Farree still thinks on him as Lord-One and Maelen as Lady.

Dare to Go A-Hunting (1990) is the fourth novel in this series. Farree is squirming on a high stool, suffering from the heat within the room. He might be too polite to mention the warmth, but Toggor emits feelings of overheating. Zoror reaches to the wall, flips a switch, and a swift breeze blows through the room.

Then Zoror continues his comments on myths featuring people much like Farree. He says that most such information comes from Terra and its early colonies. He mentions tales of the Little People and the People of the Hills.

Maelen and Krip enter the room accompanied by a fragrance that arouses Farree. The scent comes from some shimmering material. Then he also smells death on the material.

They take Farree to the market and he finds more such material. Farree is able to sense the substance when the trader flees them. They track him down and learn more from eavesdropping on his accomplices.

They learn that one of the smugglers was on Wayland's World five years before. Seeing the constellations behind Wayland, Farree recognizes one that he has seen before. They identify a solar system that might contain a habitable world.

Farree and Zoror accompany Maelen and Krip on their ship to a possible homeworld of Farree's people. They land on the planet and Farree is compelled to fly toward someone calling him. On the way, he meets a flying lizard and a barrier in the sky.

These tales change Farree in many ways. He grows more capable with people and animals. He even makes new friends.

This omnibus is the last in the series. Yet the author has written many more series and novels, including the Forerunner duology. The initial SF work by this author is Star Man's Son.

These novels -- particularly the last -- show the author's use of fantasy themes within science fiction settings. She later switched to more explicit fantasy in the Witch World series.

Highly recommended for Norton fans and for anyone else who enjoys tales of space adventures, alien cultures, and a bit of romance. Read and enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, fun writer 30 May 2014
By Debra VanSandt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Second part of one of my favorite author's best series. Read Andre Norton in the same spirit as you'd read Edgar Rice Burroughs or Robert Heinlein or Isaac Asimov, and you'll love her books. Andre Norton was crowned as a Grand Master writer in her time, and with good reason. I've been going back and reading her series again and I've found, much to my delight, that they're just as much fun as when I read them decades ago. That is the sign of an amazing writer!
