Just started this the other night - we'll see how it goes. Interesting idea to bring the idea of the Fae into space.

So... I realized the reason that the story never seemed clear to me is that it's not. These books are very vague, in terms of plot and description. But I liked this one, despite feeling very unsure of some of the things that happened. I realize this is because the main character is also unsure, but at times, i really want to know more about the characters and the world they inhabit

another reread - I imagine I liked it far better when I was much younger.
There seem to be as many names for this series as there are books in it. The books in the series are (in order):

Moon of Three Rings
Exiles of The Stars
Flight in Yiktor
Dare to Go A-Hunting.

I have to say I found the last book somewhat disappointing, because Farree becomes so detached from his companions that he several times wanders off on his own.

This series doesn't have as many murders in it as many other Norton books, but the basic idea that it's possible to forfeit one's right to life is still

Dare to go ahunting for fear of little men...

Ms Norton turned this age-old rhyme into a fantastic tale. It had heroism, pathos, and what I feel is her theme - don't judge based on the visual: base your judgement on the person's worth as a being.

I had been searching for this book for a while, and it wasn't nearly as good as I remember it being.

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
