Even when they are reunited in the Waste, Kerovan cannot open his heart to his beloved. Not as long as the mystery of his lineage remains.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is the first book I read by Andre Norton individually and so when I picked it up, was truly curious. I was blown away at her use of words streaming as though from a woman of hidden knowledge and chambers of captivating imagination! I found it easy to get into and was taken on a journey of one courageous woman's pursuit of loyalty and love to her beloved half-breed husband. I absoluetly adore a good romance in my sci-fi and fantasy stories, but this was unlike the typical one you are used to. Joisan's husband lord whose name is Kerovan is troubled by his half-blood heritage, and is torn from reality and fate, love and his true identity. Go on a truly exciting page turning adventure with them as they fiind themselves thrown into a terrible battle between Light and Dark. Here Kerovan will find his true self, and Joisan's devotion will be rewarded in full, but not without paying a price that nearly costs their lives, as they dive blindly into the Waste, where no one should venture to in ignorance. ENJOY! Highly Highly recommended...
