Both of the books in this volume took a bit of getting into -- I wasn't hooked immediately but found myself drawn into the story as I continued reading. I did find the language rather off-puttingly formal (slightly archaic in places), which I think contributed to the time it took to get immersed in the story.

I'm not so much giving up on it, as deciding not to read it now. I only got a few pages in. Nothing's hooked me, but honestly I haven't given it much of a chance to hook me. I can't remember now why I brought this home from the library other than maybe I thought I ought to read some Andre Norton. Or I needed to read the start of the series to get to the good bits. I dunno. I may read it later.

First contacts with the publishing world led her, as many other contemporary female writers targeting a male-dominated market, to choose a literary pseudonym.
