4.0 out of 5 stars
A timely reissue, 22 Aug 2001
I bought the three books that make up this volume several years ago and was struck by the same sort of feelings of exploring new lands that McKillip details with reference to The Lord of the Rings in the introduction to this edition.
The themes of growth and of exploring the self as well as the land and its past are very strong here and are reflected in the riddling. Definitely worth a read. I've been recommending it to friends for years, who have always come back to me saying they couldn't find it. Good to see it in print again and I'll probably be buying as a gift for various people.
