He called himself by the name of the father he had never known, Vazkor, king of a forgotten land. In his veins were mingled the blood of that regal warrior and that of his witch mother, the silver-masked, snowy-haired survivor of the hated Old Race. He had sworn that she would die at his hands in the name of his father and all that his world had become. Across that barbari ...more

Tuvek, now known as Vazkor continues his quest to find and destroy his mother. Through conquered cities, across the ocean and into strange magical lands, he discovers and shapes his powers, brooding on how he will end his mother's life and avenge his father.

To be honest, this book didn't hold my attention the way the previous two did. It still centered primarily around Vazkor and his journey, and while he did progress as a character, I was more interested in his mother. I found myself getting im

This is the final book of a trilogy that started in Birthgrave, Lee's first novel. That one was a phantasmagorical journey of a woman without any memory of herself through a landscape with that pulp fiction feel of H Rider Haggard tales of lost civilizations, or perhaps even more akin, Jane Gaskell's Atlan Saga The middle book, Vazkor, Son of Vazkor, as signaled by it's title, is centered on a Conan-like character called Vazkor, son of the heroine of Birthgrave. He retraces her steps, like her t ...more
This was a different strand of fantasy in that the sorcerer's powers have no limit, he is without restraint, and learns relatively quickly of the disillusionment that comes with such power but finds at every turn, with no little struggle and suffering, reason to live and find interest in life. Picking up where Vazkor, Son of Vazkor left off, Quest for the White Witch is an impressive tale, beautifully written, even when what is being described is in fact horrific. Vazkor finds himself lead to th ...more

This is one of Tanith Lee's better books, so I recommend it whole-heartedly. That said, here are the important details.

This story begins with a man who solves every problem he has with magic, and that initially turned me off, as nothing seemed to be a problem. As the story progresses, he seems to use it more and more, until there are things that pose a true challenge. And then, the painful regress and a new path toward enlightenment. To get to the more thoughtful bits, you'll have to go through
RIP, Ms Tanner. You left behind some wonderful stories. Another victim of a terrible disease. Wonderful words on your website to say goodbye "“Though we come and go, and pass into the shadows, where we leave behind us stories told — on paper, on the wings of butterflies, on the wind, on the hearts of others — there we are remembered, there we work magic and great change — passing on the fire like a torch — forever and forever. Till the sky falls, and all things are flawless and need no words at ...more

Sequel to The Birthgrave and Vazkor"," Son of Vazkor
Part of the Birthgrave trilogy. A good testosterone-filled journey. I suggest reading The Birthgrave first.
Very well written, as always. But, thank God, it's over! The end was definitely worth the read.

One of my all time favorites. I've reread this countless times.
I read this series once - a bit strange in places
