It's hard to read these books in chronological order, particularly when they weren't written in chronological order. This is the part when the Were-Riders were recruited to help the Dales against the Alizonders, but it includes Elys and Jervon, and so is after one of the stories in Spell of The Witch World. (I figure that, by the end, Norton must've had a huge chart to remind her of what was when, and who were contemporaries.)
Not bad. Of course there's a lot of romance-novel stuff which I ate up as a youngster, but it's got a nice variety of plot elements.

Joisan and Kerovan are supposed to be married; but Kerovan has rejected her in order to protect her from the fate following his magic-imbued birth defect. Joisian cannot let him go though, and it's just as well, as he will need Joisian's courage and help, and the magic of gryphon charm he gave to her, to follow his destiny. Joisian is a strong, capable woman and she

Must read for Witch World

This book is fast paced, thought-provoking and spell-binding. Another must read in the Witch World saga. Andre Norton at her best.

As per usual, another awesome fantasy [romance] adventure by Andre Norton. She is always so adept at merging fantasy, adventure, and growing romantic feelings that leave me wanting more--and this novel was no different. I love her books, and this High Hallack series was as poignant as The Crystal Gryphon or Year of the Unicorn. I look forward to my next read.

I like this one a lot. I like it about as much as it's direct predecessor, The Crystal Gryphon. It's not easy to follow a book with one neither much better nor much worse than the first, but Andre Norton did it here. But then, that's why she's the Grand Old Dame of science fiction and fantasy. {REALLY BIG GRIN}

I was startled by how old-fashioned this one seemed. I think it was partly the language which was rather deliberately trying for archaic. It made everything seem a little distant. However, the alternating narrative didn’t bother me! [Nov. 2010]
Sometimes reading these books can be confusing, as they were not written in a chronological order. This book continues the tale of the Wereriders and their separation from their world and from the Witch World, and what that has cost them.

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
