Overview

An exciting new fantasy in the tradition of Andre Norton’s Witch World

Lyn McConchie, the coauthor of The Duke’s Ballad and Silver May Tarnish, returns with The Questing Road, a new fantasy that captures the spirit of her successful collaborations with Andre Norton.

Searching for a stolen foal, several farming folk inadvertently cross through a gateway into a different world. Not long after, the lord and lady of a nearby keep begin a trip to find the sire of the lady’s empathic cat. They too traverse a gate unwittingly and find themselves in the same strange world.

On the other side of the gate the two groups meet and discover that the world they have entered is in great danger. The foal has been stolen to be sacrificed as part of a scheme to loose a horde of demons upon the world. Somehow the cat and the foal are the keys to the possible salvation of this world, which may prove a home to them and their owners…or their doom.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
When Tayio, the son of Chylo and Razaia, members of the felinoid Tarian race, disappears, his parents and their human friends search for him and wander unknowingly through a portal into another world. Their paths cross with a pair of nobles whose empathic cat is on a quest to find its sire. Together, these seekers must involve themselves in a complex plot to prevent a group of evil people from setting loose a horde of demons through the sacrifice of the captive Tayio. New Zealander McConchie, a frequent collaborator with the late Andre Norton (Silver May Tarnish), goes solo in her first original fantasy novel. VERDICT A vivid and colorful background enlivened with intelligent catlike creatures as well as humans of many different cultures makes this a better-than-average fantasy that should appeal to fans of Norton's "Witch World" series.
From the Publisher

Praise for The Questing Road

“Lyn McConchie, Andre Norton’s collaborator for a number of novels in Norton’s universes, has continued Norton’s tradition in The Questing Road. In search of a stolen child, a trio of ranchers pass a gate into another world. A short time later another four (including a telepathic cat) riding purely for adventure, pass a gate into the same world. The two groups meet, and soon discover that the world they have entered is in great danger. The child has been stolen to be sacrificed, which will lose a horde of demons on the land. It is part of a long-laid plot by one who seeks revenge, but others involved have their own schemes. The telepathic cat has a key role to play—if they can figure out what it is in time. The Questing Road is well-written adventure and definitely in Norton’s style. It should please Norton fans, and anyone looking for an agreeable read.”

Booklist

Praise for Silver May Tarnish by Andre Norton and Lyn McConchie:

“In this well-crafted fantasy set in the late Norton’s Witch World, she and McConchie, her collaborator on two previous Witch World novels, have produced a seamless page-turner. Although the basic setting is familiar after more than forty years’ worth of Witch World stories, the book’s quite convincing picture of a land without rulers or laws in the wake of disaster is more than a little timely.”

Booklist

“[T]he story of the magical, war-torn realm and those struggling to survive upon it is completely captivating.”

    This is an intriguing quest fantasy

    Kyrryl, her husband Yoros and his niece Ashara seek to rescue the kidnapped child Ashara. The brave trio follows a path, but initially is unaware that the trail leads them though a portal opened by a desperate wizard from another world to their realm.

    At about the same time that Kyrryl and her companions cross over, brothers Sirado and Eilish, and companion Trasso are enjoying a ride together when they unknowingly cross through a portal to the same world that the rescue party traversed. A cat goddess endows the six travelers with the ability to speak the local language. When the two groups meet, they agree to unite on their respective journeys. The sextet soon encounters local merchants Anatiah and Kaitlen. The latter pair hides escaped slave Aycharna. Now a party of nine, they seek the missing Ashara, unaware that a wizard took her as an animal sacrifice, and hope to return Aycharna to her home before returning to their various homes.

    This is an intriguing quest fantasy due to the kidnapper unaware the beast he snatched from the other world to use as a sacrifice has loving sentient family members wanting her home safe and sound. The story line is fast-paced from the moment the trek begins and never slows down as the teams unite in a common cause of helping two young females. Although feline-like deities making the key decisions for the travelers detracts from their expedition, as they have no difficult cultural-ethical differences between the groups from two worlds or choices to make, fans will enjoy the entertaining rescue missions.
