Overview

Two outstanding and moving novels, Flight to Yiktor and Dare to Go A-Hunting, concluding legendary best-selling storyteller Andre Norton’s epic Moonsinger series collected in one volume. In a far future galaxy, a mistreated, misshapen young orphan discovers his origins as one of the last of the Faery Folk, and uses his psychic abilities and courage to win back his heritage over great odds and in spite of nefarious villains seeking to use his powers for evil ends.

Two outstanding and moving novels concluding Andre Norton’s legendary Moonsinger series together in one volume. In Flight to Yiktor, Farree is a hunchback orphan in the slum of a tough, lawless world on the edge of the known galaxy. His only friend? A war-beast rescued from starvation and the fighting pits with whom he has a telepathic connection.

In Dare to Go A-Hunting, Farree has discovered a portion of his true heritage as one of the ancient Little People, the Faery Folk, of legend—but so far as he knows, he is the only one of his kind to survive. Then his compatriots, star-traveler Krip Vorlund and psychic sorceress Lady Maelen, run across wings for sale in the market on a distant frontier outpost world—wings that have obviously been cut from the backs of creatures similar to Farree. The origin of the wings points to location of Farree’s birthplace. But others have an acute interesting in locating that place, as well. And those others do not mean the inhabitants well. Now Farree must find and defend a family and people he does not remember, but who hold the key to his own strange destiny.

This volume, #2 in the series, completes Andre Norton’s legendary Moonsinger saga.

    This is a reprint of the exciting books three and four in the super Moonsinger saga

    "Flight to Yiktor." In the lawless slums of the Limits, Farree the hunchback alien has no friends except for Togger the war-beast he telepathically communicates with. Lady Maelen the psychic Moonsinger asks his name and he replies Dung. She insists he is Farree who has no idea how he ended up on this lethal planet. Maelen and Free Trader Krip Vorland take Farree and Togger with them as they journey to her planet Yiktor while enemies pursue them.

    "Dare to Go a-Hunting." Farree has come a long way since Lady Maelen rescued him as his wings came out of his misshapen body. Krip has found wings like Farree's in a marketplace. With his friends, Farree begins his journey to find any of his species.

    This is a reprint of the exciting books three and four in the super Moonsinger saga which focuses more on Farree than on the stars of the first two tales (see Moon of Three Rings and Exiles of the Stars) although they play key roles. The fast-paced Flight in Yiktor feels like a transition tale that is enhanced by having the fascinating conclusion Dare to Go a-Hunting (with ties to some other Andre Norton outer space thrillers) in the same omnibus collection although that also shows a rather radical change in the hero's personality. Still these terrific two tales are entertaining thrillers.
