4.0 su 5 stelle Vintage Norton - Witch World book 24 luglio 2000
Di E. A. Lovitt - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
'Horn Crown' is a prequel to the series of Witch World books that are set in the dales of High Halleck, e.g. "Year of the Unicorn" and "The Crystal Gryphon". We learn about the original settlers who came through a Gate to the Dales, and their introduction to the Light and Dark forces that still lingered among the ruins. This book is vintage Norton and a must for Witch World fans. I withheld one star because 'Horn Crown' is talkier and carries a bit less of a plot line than most of her WW novels. However, she has a lot to explain and 'Horn Crown' is, after all, a prequel. As always, her hero and heroine are outcasts from the normal run of medieval settlers who came through the Gate in order to claim land and build Holds. The story is told from the masculine viewpoint, and there is a bit more sex (although very tastefully done) than is usual for Norton. We actually get to meet the Goddess Gunnora, who is an intriguing mixture of Ceres, Diana, and Aphrodite (the latter two 'aspects' were a bit of a surprise to me as I had always associated Gunnora with harvests and childbirth, and not much more). There's lots of interesting magic and really evil creatures of the Dark (as I said, vintage Norton if you are a WW fan). You really need to read this if you liked 'Year of the Unicorn' or 'The Crystal Gryphon'.

3.0 su 5 stelle Good Fantasy 1 dicembre 1999
Di Michael Scott - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
'Horn Crown' is an immensely entertaining epic fantasy. The plot culminates in a classic good vs. evil matchup.
At times thought it seemed that Norton gave more attention to detail than plot. She goes to great lengths in describing an ancient castle at the expense of action. I found my mind wandering as I read the three pages of describing stones, hallways and tables. I didn't realize the story had resumed until I was two paragraphs into to, necessitating a re-read. There were several such instances.
A good book for a cold night.

5.0 su 5 stelle Great story, poorly transcribed! 9 gennaio 2014
Di Amazon Customer - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle
Well, well....the story is exciting, like all of Norton's texts, following a familiar pattern, but no worse for that...but oh dear, the transcription is full of ridiculous errors...silly misprint, cut-off sentences, missing clauses, etc, etc, etc....How I wish a human had edited this before it was released...a cheat to have to pay 3.99 for this, when one can get a used copy of the text in book form for less, without the silly errors and mistakes! So, story get five stars, this edition....none!

I read Andre Norton when her pen was Andrew Norton so that dates me. I loved her mixing of sci fi with fantasy and as the fantasy developed I loved it on its own merits. She took me to the stars at a time when Glenn was circling the earth. I would have applied as a teacher on the space shuttle but for my claustrophobia. As an adult rereading her books gives a new perspective but I still enjoy her world building, plots, and characters....
