Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* Annat and Malchik are Wanderer children. Raised in their aunt's sheltered home among the Doxoi, a Christian-like people who hate and fear Wanderers, they are now to spend six months traveling with their father, the powerful shaman Yuda, to the frozen northlands, where a tunnel is underway beneath the Forest of Ademar to the unknown regions beyond. Yuda's stated mission is one of healing, but secretly he is to investigate a series of murders that threatens the tunnel's completion. Annat has inherited shamanic talent that she is excited about expanding with her father's help, but the scholarly Malchik prefers reading about adventure to living it. Within a day of arrival with their father, however, the children are thrown into a world of pure evil, wild magic, and interdimensional shamanic travel. The world of this wonderful story is a blend of familiar elements: languages are satisfyingly almost French and almost Slavic; religions are akin to Judaism and Christianity. Spirited, fiercely individualistic Yuda is the most fascinating character. Relationships are complex and realistic. Answers aren't easy, and endings aren't tritely happy, though the promise of light and redemption lies shrouded by the tale's heady dark mystery. Garnishing this refreshing fantasy is Rydill's writing, which holds a slightly foreign tone appropriate to the setting yet remains relaxed and easy. A red-letter debut! Paula Luedtke
