Norton adds a new name to her respectable roster of collaborators, another volume to the Witch World canon, and, not incidentally, another highly readable book to her massive body of work. The plot is classic--a young girl of Native American and Celtic ancestry and possessing knowledge of both traditions' magical lore passes into the Witch World. Once there, she discovers that she needs to learn its ways and how to use her magic. As she does both, she survives intrigues and battles and finds love, or at least a congenial prospect for life companionship. Norton and McConchie mesh smoothly, and thanks to the plot, their book is a better introduction to the Witch World than some other recent works about Norton's most enduring creation. Consider this a necessary addition to the Norton shelf.
