Few authors have achieved such renown as World Fantasy Life Achievement honoree and Grand Master by the Science Fiction Writers of America, Andre Norton. With the love of readers and the praise of critics, Norton's books have sold millions of copies worldwide. Tirtha was the last of the line of Hawkholme. Those who hated the Old Race had destroyed her clan, and she alone shouldered the burden of her family’s destiny. Compelled by a powerful magic to return to her ancestral home, she set out into the desolate, ruined mountains of Estcarp. Her guide was a falconer, a man of an ancient warrior race who was also alone in the world... But a Dark One was determined to foil their mission – only together could they hope to stand against its awesome powers. “Deeply enmeshed in sorcery and magic, the story is taut with conflict and suspense” – The Horn Book Magazine “A superb storyteller with a narrative pace all her own.” – New York Times “The Grande Dame of science fiction.” – Life Magazine
