My first Patricia Mckillip book, and I wasn't expecing much from this thin looking book. However, my mind was simply blown away by the mastery of her language. In a world where Fantasy genre is dominated by thick tomes with bloated language and sophomore prose, here is someone with economy of language and lyrical prose. A beautiful piece of writing that exalts this story from a simple fantasy to the universality of classic fairy tales. I am trying to locate as many of her books as I can, wondering, if this is one of her least known books, how good her well known and award winning books will be? Those of you who are tired of unending sagas and are appreciative of lucid prose, should check this one out.
