One of my favorites of all time. Every Eisenstein novel or story are worth reading, for they're both rare and exceptionally crafts. This novel is really a fix-up of several short stories published in the 80s, though it is put together seamlessly and is a very touching story. It's a small fantasy, no big epic tale, but it is so well-written and so sad in the end that it stands out.

I read this series in the wrong order, but it was still an entertaining idea. This was one of my first introductions into the fantasy genre, and it was one of the books that hooked me. Its a very fast, easy, read. Perfect for an airplane or an afternoon when you're sick and stuck in bed but not in the mood for something heavy.
