Publisher's Summary

Across the mountains called the Dragon's Teeth, beyond the chill reach of the Werewind and the fires of the world's beginning, above the walls of the castle Fangdred, stands Windtower. From this lonely keep the Star Rider calls forth the war that even wizards dread, fought for a woman's hundred-lifetime love. A woman called Nepanthe, princess to the Stormkings…

Nothimg like Black Company-good in a different way

I am a big fan of the Black Company series and wanted to try out Glen Cook's other writing. I was surprised to find this book to be nothing like Black Company, in almost every way. I am, however, pleasantly impressed by Glen Cook's talent and versatility. This was poetic and reminded me more of a folk tale than a fantasy novel. it meandered in a lovely way-like a walk through an old, mysterious garden. The performance was well done, but relaxing so do not listen while at work or operating heavy machinery. The one consistent style between this and Black Company is Glen Cook's ability to give each character a consistent and unique voice. Also, the sarcastic and nuanced humor is still there. Definitely worth reading, just different.
