I bought this book way back when it was first published and it has never lost it's magick for me. I actually first read it as a long short story entitled 'The Fane Of The Grey Rose' in an anthology called 'Swords Against Darkness IV' (1979) edited by Andrew J. Offutt (also known for writing the Shadowspawn character in the Thieves World series). The basic storyline is the same, although some of the details differ and of course the book is much longer. For those of you who are looking for more tales of Cerin Songweaver and his wife Meran, look for a book called 'Triskell Tales: 22 years of chapbooks'Was this review helpful?

Well, it is Cerin Kelledy! But the woman who becomes his wife, Meran, is not present in this book. A tale not in Newford but some land that holds enchantement, THE HARP OF THE GREY ROSE is a tale that, holds interesting concpets, &, if you enjoy the Kelledys & seek more on their mysterious past as many of us do, is well worth the small price of this book. To put all simple, Cerin had a love before Meran, one that he never thought he could forget *or* replace. Obviously, Newford readers know he moves forward. But in this tale, we learn more about Cerin, including what the land is like where he is from. It took me a year to find this book, and this is why: It was published by Firebird, a fantasy branch of Penguin. Firebird publishes for many teens and tweens, but not strictly (just see what they have by Datlow & Windling!). So look in the YA section!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
