WHY would anyone name their made-up higher-power Molester? WHY?!

I'm serious. Why? Nortonophiles, if this is explained in some other book of hers please cue me in.

And may the wands of the Moon Singers be over you in the name of Molester.

This book is the third in a series featuring Krip Vorlund and Maelen but is told from the point of view of a new character Farree. However, it can be read as a standalone.

Being an Andre Norton novel it is a coming of age story. Again, being a Andre Norton book the world building is very good. Reading this as a (rather) mature adult, I still found the Free Trader universe as fascinating as I did when I first encountered it as a teenager. I'd still sign up on a Free Trader in a heartbeat.

But, the

The 3rd book in the Krip Vorlund/Maelen series, shifting the point of view to a newly added character.

I should say that if the ending is meant to be a surprise, it's not very well hidden, given the cover picture.

This third tale continues the sage of the rescue of Dung, a hunchbacked cripple from Grant's World, and his spider friend Toggor brings him home to his people, where he is not as welcome as he thought he would be. The crew of the ship he travels on is carrying strange treasures, to be brought to a religions vaults to be used for who knows what kind of rites. The priest accompanying the treasure sabotaged the ship, forcing it to land on a planet called Sekhmet, which is not as uninhabited as it i ...more

This book introduce the character of Farree, and I felt like there wasn't much plot, really - just a kind of predictable character development that I hope will be resolved in the next book, 'Dare to Go A-Hunting.' Honestly, I was kinda disappointed. This book left a lot of strings dangling and I was kinda disappointed with the lack of plot development.

This was a very interesting read and I have to admit, the cover drew me into the story idea more than the description. I was more a fan of the Witch World series than any of the others but I gave this book a chance because it just seemed interesting. I enjoyed it.

This is a wonderful story, I just didn't really get into the way it was told. I think I've run into this problem with Norton before.

Alright the first few chapters were a little slow and confusing. but by the end the book was really good, and those earlier chapters make sense in the overall context.

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. She also used the names Andrew North and Allen ...more
