From Publishers Weekly

Nebula Grand Master Norton ( Dare to Go A-Hunting ; Wizards' Worlds ) is back at the top of her form in one of two tales beginning a new series. "Port of Dead Ships" follows Destree m'Regnant, a young woman despised by her people, the Sulcars, due to the circumstances of her birth and her powers of foreseeing. On a sea expedition to investigate disturbances to the south, her slowly maturing powers save her shipmates and the lost souls entrapped by an ancient evil that manipulates a Gate to many worlds. Griffin's ( Fire Planet ) contribution tells of the developing bond between a Holdlady of the Dales and the leader of a band of Falconers. Una of Seakeep hires the women-hating Falconers to defend her isolated hold from the depredations of her neighbor, a wrecker who wants to use her rocky coasts to lure more ships to their doom. The reluctant mercenaries take on the engagement and begin to develop bonds with the wild and beautiful Seakeep, particularly Tarlach, the leader. After a battle with men and ancient power, it remains for Una to create an answer for both peoples. These two tales make up the strongest entries in the Witch World saga in many years.

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.

As always with Andre Norton (even when written with other writers), the stories are wonderful. As glad as I am to see this in Kindle edition, the proofreading is absolutely abysmal. There are typos and misprints on page after page. An eBook should have the same level of care as a book printed in hard copy -- an eBook is NOT a text message! And eBooks are certainly in a less costly format for the publisher - the least that should be done is to have them published with a minimum of errors. Hopefully this series will be ultimately proofed and reissued by the publisher, Open Road Media. If you can get past the typos, incorrect words, and occasional words joined where they should not be, you will probably enjoy this segment of the Witch World series.

For the content alone, I would give it 5 stars. For the typos in the Kindle edition, I would give it 1 star. They are not enough to make it impossible to read, but they are enough to be annoying and distracting. There are lots of errors in capital letters, especially with the letter W. And there are errors with "n" and "h" that turn the snow cat into a show cat. Very sloppy work by the publisher of the Kindle version.

The stories are excellent but there were just so many random, stupid, repetitive errors that it was a chore to finish the book. A real insult to Norton and Griffin. Amazon, where is the quality control?

Format: Mass Market Paperback
"Storms of Victory" is somewhere near the 20th book in Norton's popular Witch World series. It's also the first installment of the "Turning" trilogy, followed by Flight of Vengeance (Witch World: The Turning, Bk. 2)and On Wings of Magic: Witch World: The Turning Book 3. As such, it sets the stage for a larger story, but "Storms of Victory" can be read alone.

The book contains two separate novellas that come to a satisfactory conclusion by the end of this first volume. Both are decent fantasy stories with a strong sense of adventure and no profanity or scenes that might be inappropriate for younger readers. This volume is an important part of the Witch World saga, and I recommend it to fans of the series. If you're new to Witch World, this is not a bad place to dive in, but parts of it would be easier to understand if you've read previous Witch World books.

(MINOR PLOT SPOILERS)

The first tale, "Port of Dead Ships," was written by Andre Norton. A young Sulcar woman sets sail with Simon Tregarth, Jaelithe, and several other familiar Witch World characters to find out why so many ships have been found floating aimlessly, their crews mysteriously vanished. The expedition encounters assorted creepy creatures along the way, and finally an ancient evil that threatens to destroy them.

The second story, "Seakeep," was written by P.M. Griffin. Una has recently inherited the rule of a small territory named Seakeep. Suspecting that a neighboring ruler might be planning an invasion, Una hires a band of mercenaries called Falconers to protect her holdings.

Storms of Victory features the wonderful prose in all the Witchworld novels. Andre Nortons writing sings. But before 2% of the text had passed before my eyes, I was driven out by the "fete" for "fate"error and a flood of similar errors. It just hurts to read. I'd joyfully proofread her work for the cost of a free final e-copy.

This is a good book which helps to "flesh out" the period of time of the turning of WW. A must for every WW fan, it is a great read and wonderful addition to your library. I have read my copy of the turning trilogy several times.

Nice colection with two novelletes. The first is a tale Norton had in other collections about the curse ofmthe Falconers. The second is a new tale by Griffin combining High Halleck and the Falconers. Both are good tales. Griffins is perhaps more modern in its emotional range.

This book gives background on the Sulcars. A lot of it I didn't know. It also gives a new look at the Falconers and how they live when they have no Eeire of their own. I'm a fan of Witch World and it's inhabitants, so I really like all of their books.
