Review

"She remains one of the most underrated masters of science fiction and fantasy." --Minneapolis Star-Tribune

About the Author

For well over a half century, Andre Norton has been one of the most popular science fiction and fantasy authors in the world. Since her first SF novels were published in the 1940s, her adventure SF has enthralled readers young and old. With series such as Time Traders, Solar Queen, Forerunner, Beast Master, Crosstime, and Janus, as well as many stand-alone novels, her tales of action and adventure throughout the galaxy have drawn countless readers to science fiction.

Her fantasy, including the best-selling Witch World series, her "Magic" series, and many other unrelated novels, has been popular with readers for decades. Lauded as a Grand Master by the Science Fiction Writers of America, she is the recipient of a Life Achievement Award from the World Fantasy Convention. Not only have her books been enormously popular; she also has inspired several generations of SF and fantasy writers, especially many talented women writers who have followed in her footsteps. In the past two decades she has worked with other writers on a number of novels. Most notable among these are collaborations with Mercedes Lackey, the Halfblood Chronicles, as well as collaborations with A.C. Crispin (in the Witch World series) and Sherwood Smith (in the Time Traders and Solar Queen series). An Ohio native, Ms. Norton lived for a number of years in Winter Park, Florida, and now makes her home in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, where she continues to write, and presides over High Hallack, a writers' resource and retreat.

Well written & engrossing.

And I love the use of language in her stories - rather archaic but still easy to understand.

I've loved Andre Norton since I was in 7th grade.

Format: Hardcover
"Lost Lands of the Witch World" is a reissue of the very fine Escore trilogy, featuring the adventures of Kemoc, Kyllan, and Kaththea, the three children of Earth-born warrior, Simon Tregarth and his witch-wife, Jaelithe. The three novels combined in this volume are "Three Against the Witch World"(1965), "Warlock of the Witch World" (1967), and "Sorceress of the Witch World" (1968).

Kaththea Tregarth, born one of three triplets, could link telepathically with her birth-brothers, Kyllan and Kemoc. At an early age, she was forcibly separated from her brothers and taken to the Place of Silence to be trained in magic by Wise Women of Estcarp.

In "Three Against the Witch World" narrated by Kyllan, the warrior brother, the triplets escape from witch-ruled Estcarp to the magical land of Escore. There, they accidentally destroy the false peace that had long abided between the great powers of Light and Dark. "Things awoke and gathered, and the land was troubled..." and the three learn that they must fight with the forces of Light, or be utterly annihilated by the Dark.

Unfortunately, in "Warlock of the Witch World" narrated by Kemoc, the wizard brother, Kaththea is wooed by the fair-seeming Dinzil, who is actually a creature of the Great Dark Ones.

Kemoc sets out to win allies against the Dark among the Krogan, who made their homes in the lakes, rivers, and waterways of Escore. When he returns from this failed mission, there are many other battles to be fought in the now-troubled land. During one such engagement, Kemoc is wounded and is almost captured by minions of the Dark, but is saved by the Krogan maid, Orsya.

As series are finding their way to the Kindle market, Witch World was one that I really hoped would make it. As of this writing, the first three books "Witch World," "Web of Witch World" and "Year of the Unicorn" have not shown up in Kindle editions.

But the second part of that series, featuring the children of Simon Tregarth and Jaelithe is available both as separate stories and as a single file trilogy. "Three Against the Witch World," "Warlock of the Witch World" and "Sorceress of the Witch World" as a collection in "Lost Lands of Witch World" in the Kindle edition is what I am reviewing.

Andre Norton leaves hard core science fiction behind in this trilogy and moves into Science Fantasy. Gone are the space ships and any trappings that might have held the first three books to the science fiction genre. Ms. Norton goes completely into fantasy - as was made popular in the mid to late 60s. But this does not distract from the stories or the works themselves. They were fresh then, and the quality of storytelling has not lost its luster over time.

Ms. Norton created a very unique world in Estcarp. I have always found her ability to write descriptive fiction wonderful and deliberate, moving the reader along in her worlds comfortably. What seems alien at the start becomes a delight to the mind's eye and comfortably familiar. Her characters are well developed, each having a personality we can identify with, drawing us into the story, yet always retaining the adventure that science fiction fans crave. And I love the use of language in her stories - rather archaic but still easy to understand.

The stories of the 3 children of Jaelithe and Simon are collected in this single volume, which since they are all intertwined is convenient.I have loved these books since I was a child and find them just as readable years later. Andre Norton spins tales that draw you in and keep you reading long past your bedtime.

Love Andre Norton in the 70s and still do. It is like a long lost friend found again, and just as good to read now.

Another continuation of the Witch World Series by one of the worlds greatest story tellers. Andre Norton's use of language will take you out of the pages of book and transport you.

A wonderful volume. I had read all the books many years ago, and had worn them out...So it is a great treat to re introduce myself to the witchworld. Personaly a " must " for any sci fi fantasy library . Good characters, an interesting world with great details, and best of all, the storys are just as good at over 50 as they were when I was a child.
