Good book for Witch World fans 25 Nov 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I almost didn't get this because of a bad review and rating on Amazon.com, but this is really a good book. It is in the spirit of the other Witch World books, and it had an interesting new viewpoint, focusing on a young baron from Alizon (who almost seems human, in spite of the strange culture he lives in). It is very readable, and kept me interested the whole way: I sat down to read it the day I got it in the mail, and couldn't quit until I finished it about 1 AM. This is probably not the first Witch World book to read (you might have trouble figuring out the context), but it explains some events referred to in Warding of the Witch World. If you are a Witch World fan, you shouldn't hesitate to get this book.
Inept Author 12 Aug 2013
By SciFiFan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
The first 15 pages consist of clumsy dialogic exposition, the sole purpose of which appears to be not to waste the backstory the writer obviously spent a lot of time on.
Then the male protagonist magically gets transported to Lormt, for no reason other than so he can get on with a records search which he has never considered or had motivation for previously.
It's truly sad when great authors such as Andre Norton prostitute their names to sell inferior writings of wannabes who appear to have never read a book or taken a course on writing.
All the hours the writer spent working up her backstory would have been better spent learning how to write.
I gave two stars instead of one solely in memory of Andre Norton, may she rest in peace.

looking for the n ext installment! Great story! About a Mage and a Mage's son. The Mage gets caught in a time thing and descendant many years later and the daughter he managed to sire contributes. Well worth reading...they were working against the Dark Mages of Escore and seek to align with the witches of Estcarp at the end of this book....That is the one I want to get next!

A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
i have read many of Nortons books, and myself own about 20. I have loved almost all of them, and never before have i encountered one that i disliked this much. I found that i could barely finish it, which is odd for me with ANY book. I would just like to warn prospective buyers to stick to Nortons other books, most of which rate four stars or higher, but just borrow this book from the library.
