Overview

Rod Gallowglass is a man of science who does not believe in magic.

Gramarye is a world of witches and warlocks. Of strange abilities and phenomena. A world where society mirrors Earth's own Middle Ages, and a world headed for doom.

Rod Gallowglass must become a part of the local fabric to save the world from both itself and external forces that threaten its existence. But to do so, he must put aside his own convictions and beliefs, and become a warlock, in spite of himself.

A grand adventure mixing science fiction with elements of fantasy, this is the book that launched a whole series (fourteen books and counting).

I would encourage anyone who considers themselves an afficianado of sci-fi/fantasy to ready Mr. Stasheff's work. This book in particular did something not many books of its time had done - effectively combined the elements of sci-fi and fantasy, making them no longer separate but existing within the same world. It's a good read and will hook you on the series, which continues to this day...

Engrossing and readable; story flows from one interesting development to the next. Excellent satire, with a sound display of political science. Author has a Pratchett-like ability to amuse greatly with use of humor and punning (watch out!). Setting and background are well thought out and neatly presented: good characters, and nicely developed. Stashoff is prolific and successful, and this was his first in the genre; if one enjoys this, there are, fortunately, many sequelae in which to immerse oneself. A`can`t-put-it-down' offering.

I still think highly of this book, although i read it long ago. Quite underrated.

The NOOK book has 1675 pages and the paperback version has 378 pages. I cannot change the font setting on my NOOK which makes it very hard to read. A whole section of the book is missing from the NOOK book - page 341-344. I had been happy to see the NOOK version since I am trying to convert my library but I will definitely be keeping my paperback version because the NOOK version is uncomfortable to read and incomplete. I am sincerely disappointed.

I have read the entire series at least 4 times. Science Fiction meets a World of Magic (well not quite). Just love the robot horse - beloved by generations - even if he does have seizures. I recomment this series for children of all ages.

I loved this book. The blending of science fiction and fantasy is great. Rod and Gwen are great characters. My only gripe about this book and the rest of the series is the time travel thing. Never worked for me. Other than that, would recommend to Fantasy readers whole heartedly.
