I had forgotten how much I loved S&S before starting to read Brackett this week. Another terrific John Stark novel from Brackett, I've been on a Sword and Sorcery bender this past week and this story stands up to her others quite well, I particular liked the siege and the lead up to the battle.

Leigh Brackett was born on December 7, 1915 in Los Angeles, and raised near Santa Monica. Having spent her youth as an athletic tom-boy - playing volleyball and reading stories by Edgar Rice Burroughs and H Rider Haggard - she began writing fantastic adventures of her own.
