This book is a must read if there ever was one. You can read it over and over and it seems as if it were the first. I have read it 5 times ans may read it again. Its great for all ages and fun to read as a family. Also a wonderful gift!!

I fell into this trilogy by way of Winter Rose (also by McKillip), and it hurtled its way to the top of my reading loves. There is just something about the writing style, the phrasing and sentence convolutions that wrap themselves all around you while you read. As a story, it is unique in it's characters and the manner of it's telling. It is a story that makes you cry and come back forever just so you can feel that trembling in the heart. And each time I read it, I reread sentences and paragraphs to embed them for a time in my memory, to roll them around in thoughts. So read this trilogy!

Her words weave a world filled with glints of magic like sunlight through mist.

I'm glad they put the trilogy into one book. I have re-read this book over and over. It is full of humor and magic and has kept me enthralled since it was first published.

Having read the series and reread the all-in-one book of the series a decade later I have to admit it's a very good read. Well paced, lots of intrigue, with a twisting ending. It's not a complicated read, but you'll easily be entertained with the imagery Patricia McKillip weaves for your senses. It's not a sword and sorcery fantasy, but more on sorcery and nature and there is nothing wrong with that. Overall I'd suggest this book for anyone looking for an extended story line telling of sorcery and questions that need to be answered before the ending can come to a final close.

I read the first book of this series as I was just beginning to read for pleasure as a young teen. I discovered it in an old box of books my mother had in the basement and I was hooked from page one. Completely dependent on the quality of the tale instead of filling the pages with sex and violence to hide a lack of substance, as we find so often in more recent writings. A story about destiny and the many people it snares along the way.

I read the first book in this trilogy in college. It ended with everything unresolved and I just stared at it in disbelief that the book was over. I had to wait years for book two but wow, this is the best book series I have ever read. I've reread it many times over the years and introduced it to my children too. Just purchased this book to give it another read!

Overall, the story is interesting. I finished the trilogy (by the way, a really good way to buy books), but the main characters had a really hard time growing up, face responsibilities and accepting fate. That frustrated me the most. You want to root for someone but you'll have a hard time doing it.
