THE NUMBER ONE DAW NOVEL!
Andre Norton's marvelous novels of the Witch World have been compared by critics to the work of J.R.R. Tolkien for their fantastic world backgrounds and equally to the great interplanetary adventures of a Clifford Simak or an Edgar Rice Burroughs. But there is nothing "copy-cat" about Andre Norton, as millions of readers will confirm.
This is one of the finest novels in Andre's best-selling Witch World saga – replete with magic and super-science imaginery – the novel with which DAW Books launched its own top-selling line of science fiction and fantasy fifteen years ago.
In this special anniversary edition, you will meet the twins, Elys, the witch-sister, and Elyn, the warrior-brother, and learn of the pact that drew both into perils beyond the laws of our everyday stars.
Andre Alice Norton (1912-2005) was an American science fiction and fantasy author (with some works of historical fiction and contemporary fiction) under the noms de plume Andre Norton, Andrew North and Allen Weston. Norton published her first novel in 1934, and was the first woman to receive the Gandalf Grand Master Award from the World Science Fiction Society in 1977, and won the Damon Knight Memorial Grand Master Award from the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA) association in 1983.
