For well over a half century, Andre Norton has been one of the most popular science fiction and fantasy authors in the world. Since her first SF novels were published in the 1940s, her adventure SF has enthralled readers young and old. With series such as Time Traders, Solar Queen, Forerunner, Beast Master, Crosstime, and Janus, as well as many stand-alone novels, her tales of action and adventure throughout the galaxy have drawn countless readers to science fiction.
Her fantasy, including the best-selling Witch World series, her "Magic" series, and many other unrelated novels, has been popular with readers for decades. Lauded as a Grand Master by the Science Fiction Writers of America, she is the recipient of a Life Achievement Award from the World Fantasy Convention. Not only have her books been enormously popular; she also has inspired several generations of SF and fantasy writers, especially many talented women writers who have followed in her footsteps. In the past two decades she has worked with other writers on a number of novels. Most notable among these are collaborations with Mercedes Lackey, the Halfblood Chronicles, as well as collaborations with A.C. Crispin (in the Witch World series) and Sherwood Smith (in the Time Traders and Solar Queen series). An Ohio native, Ms. Norton lived for a number of years in Winter Park, Florida, and now makes her home in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, where she continues to write, and presides over High Hallack, a writers' resource and retreat.
Schaub is credited as author of the two long tales (comprising more than 370 of the 384 pages) that, framed by a short introduction and afterword, make up this sequel to Storms of Victory, co-written by Nebula Grandmaster Norton and Griffin. In "Exile," the inhabitants of Witch World continue to cope with the aftermath of the catastrophic Turning of the first book. Nolar, a young woman disfigured by a facial birthmark and cast out of her family, is tutored by a brilliant scholar and comes late to her psychic powers. She and Duratan, one of the Witches nearly destroyed during the earlier Turning, search for a healing power and uncover traces of an ancient evil about to be set loose again. The second offering, "Falcon Hope," takes up the tale of Holdlady Una of Seakeep and the mercenary leader, Tarlach the Falconer, who seeks a new start for his people and their avian bond-mates, wandering homeless for many years and threatened with extinction. This addition to the new Witch World series surpasses its acclaimed predecessor; engaging protagonists, vivid writing and thoughtful development offer excellent entertainment.
