liked it

I picked this one up because I remember reading her "Magical Beasts of Eld" a number of years ago and loving it. I liked this book too, but not as much as some others on this list. Without trying to write a spoiler, let me just say I found the dual identities and manipulations of the characters rather confusing by the end. Other than that, it was very beautifully written, and family-friendly. One thing I must say I liked about this book is that one of the characters (not the main one) who made a self-discovery about her magical self and turned out to be something of a heroine by the end was a middle-aged woman with grown children. With the fantasy genre being replete with teenage and twenty-something heroes and heroines, it is nice as a middle-aged woman myself to have a middle-aged heroine. I will probably seek out some other of McKillip's books to read. Recommended for young people.
