bookshelves: fantasy, ya

The best thing about this lyrical almost mythological two part series is the world building. I've not seen anything like it before or since and it's, simply put, amazing. The writing is definitely on the side of strong and empowered women (showing feminist 1970s roots, I believe). I think the world and story are complex enough for any reader, although I believe the target audience is YA. (When she wrote it I'm not certain there really was a "YA" concept yet.) Anyway, I love it, it's brilliant!

Lisa Kuhn I absolutely love that book. Are you going to read the rest of the trilogy? It is Jane Yolen's fault that I am now a lover of fantasy.
