4.0 su 5 stelle Vintage Norton - Witch World book 24 luglio 2000
Di ealovitt - 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!
4.0 su 5 stelle Who REALLY wrote this?????? 23 maggio 2016
Di bardo - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
I have been an avid reader of Andre Norton for over fifty years, and this is an excellent book in the Witch World Series. But the writing style, although Norton-like, is also subtly unlike that of the classic works of Andre Norton. It has a grammatical structure quite different from all of her early and mid-late period books. The paragraph and the sentence structure, and the word choice are not those of the Time Trader & original WW series, or of single books like Catseye, 2250 AD, etc. Some of the syntax replicates the pseudo-archaic form of that of Norton's characters,' ("while he who had used the Lightning flash was still before us" instead of the more "normal"{"the one who'd used the Lightning flash was before us" -- reversing modern American/contemporary word order ( and creating an additional clause). But many - most - of the sentences are written with a more 'normal' simple declarative (noun-verb-predicate)structure. There is also a maturity of thought in the first-person protagonist's internal monologues that was never seen in previous works. To me this feels like a work by Norton with someone else, or someone else using a Nortonoid style. Personally, I like this modernized style more than that of the earlier works, which had become clicheish and hackneyed over years of repetition; this book was a breath of fresh air.... Does anybody know who be the true author/s here?
