I have to say many blurbs are misleading in the extreme. This one, for example, doesn't include the fact that quite a few refugee clans from Native American tribes seem to've found their way into the Witch World (Arvon especially). In this book, it's the Kioga, who play a fairly major part in the story. The series description is inaccurate, as
well--none of the action takes place in High Hallack.

The final resolution of That Which Runs The Ridges is not very satisfying, because the intermediate v
I've owned this and the previous two books for years and have read them several times (rereading the second one right now, in fact).

The characters don't share their thoughts and feelings as much in this book as they did in the two earlier Gryphon books. I have to suspect that's A.C. Crispin's influence, since The Crystal Gryphon and Gryphon in Glory were written by Andre Norton alone, while this is co-written by the two. It's still good enough for me to continue with the sequel, another cowritten work, this time apparently about one or more of these characters' children. {Smile}
(Another one from my favorite author in high school... from my collection of 40 or so of her novels) I skipped the book in between books 1 & 3, but I was pleasantly surprised to enjoy this one so much... I love the vocabulary, and it had a little romance in it as well which I'm sure appealed to the romantic in me :o)

Read in Tribute to the Late Ms. Crispin brought back memories of Norton from 40 years ago. More something for my sisters or even my daughter but an ok yarn.

Alice Mary Norton always had an affinity to the humanities. She started writing in her teens, inspired by a charismatic high school teacher. First contacts with the publishing world led her, as many other contemporary female writers targeting a male-dominated market, to choose a literary pseudonym. In 1934 she legally changed her name to Andre Alice. The androgynous Andre doesn't really say "male" ...more
