Dennis L. McKiernan is the author of many novels, most of them set in the world of Mithgar. He is one of the most prolific and enduring writers of fantasy today.From Booklist:
*Starred Review* One chill autumn eve, a handsome young knight rides into the life and the heart of Liaze, princess of the Autumnwood, who has long awaited her true love. Unfortunately, he is badly wounded and pursued by trolls. Liaze quickly dispatches the most immediate trolls--so gratifying to see a princess really fight her own battles--hauls the unconscious knight back on his war horse, hops on behind him, and tears off toward home. Luc--the knight--heals and falls in love but, having been raised by a woodsman, hasn't a clue who he really is. Judging from his courtly manners and battle training, Liaze suspects there's more to him, and when a vile witch kidnaps him and places him, under a spell, atop a glass mountain, she aims to get him back, despite such major setbacks as having no trail to follow. The Fates, who seem to have a soft spot in their hearts for Liaze's family, get involved but can offer aid only in the form of riddles. Meanwhile, time is running out so very, very quickly. No one beats McKiernan at the traditionally styled adult fairy tale, with something for everyone: beautiful princess oblivious to all states of personal dishabille, handsome prince, impossible challenges, despicably evil creatures, and romance, romance, romance! Quite simply enchanting. Paula Luedtke
