Create a Want. I loved this glimpse of the backstory. Also, Neevor and Ibycus appear, as well as others.
I love when the threads of Witch World pull together in the various tales. A short aside, this volume also contains one of my favorite Wererider stories, Were-Hunter by Mercedes Lackey, about Glenda of our world, who goes through a Gate and eventually meets Harwin, son of Harl and Kildas, who was one of the Brides from Year of the Unicorn. Thinking that was it, I backtracked and started reading the Gryphon trilogy, set in the Dales right before and during the invasion by Alizon. I had virtually no memory of reading these books before, other than the fact that Kerovan, the hero, had cloven feet.
And he had an extended encounter with Herrel!
She was the daughter of a Witch, who saves her ungrateful twin and then rides on with Jervon, a Dales warrior. All too soon though in the Gryphon novel, the Power decrees they must leave Joisan and Kerovan to follow their own road literally , and we never see them again.
In so many words! And along the way a hint of a sweet sex scene or two. Although it was co-authored by Ms. Norton and A.
Crispin, and published in Versus for Witch World. I know there are super dedicated fans who have compiled timelines and exhaustive lists regarding all the Witch World books, but I kind of enjoyed finding all these intertwining threads and appearances on my own. Along the way I read or reread all the books of short stories by Ms. Norton I could find, as well as the anthologies where she invited other authors like Ms. MUCH good reading.
What would I have written? Probably something with Wereriders….
I know what you mean, re not wanting to be disappointed but I found that I really got drawn back into Witch World and enjoyed the rereading tremendously. I think probably because the series is Fantasy, not science fiction, the worldbuilding and premise stand up well to the passage of time. Thanks for the comment! Just starting to re-read the books myself after lo, these many years. Will likely work my way through the Estcarp books before taking on High Hallack.
Not enjoying the cover art though, pretty cheesy. You are commenting using your WordPress.
