Moonsinger's QuestBook - 2011
"Two outstanding and moving novels concluding Andre Norton's legendary Moonsinger series together in one volume. In Flight to Yiktor, Farree is a hunchback orphan in the slum of a tough, lawless world on the edge of the known galaxy. His only friend? A war-beast rescued from starvation and the fighting pits with whom he has a telepathic connection. In Dare to Go A-Hunting, Farree has discovered a portion of his true heritage as one of the ancient Little People, the Faery Folk, of legend--but so far as he knows, he is the only one of his kind to survive. Then his compatriots, star-traveler Krip Vorlund and psychic sorceress Lady Maelen, run across wings for sale in the market on a distant frontier outpost world--wings that have obviously been cut from the backs of creatures similar to Farree. The origin of the wings points to location of Farree's birthplace. But others have an acute interesting in locating that place, as well. And those others do not mean the inhabitants well. Now Farree must find and defend a family and people he does not remember, but who hold the key to his own strange destiny.This volume, #2 in the series, completes Andre Norton's legendary Moonsinger saga.About Moonsinger's Quest:"Norton.takes these mythical people to the edge of extinction in the far future, where she allows her engaging hero to find his destiny."--Publishers WeeklyAbout Andre Norton:"The Grand Dame of Science Fiction..."--Time"One of the all-time masters."--Peter Straub"Andre Norton is a superb storyteller whose skill draws the reader completely into a fantastic other world..."--Chicago Tribune"Norton's renowned story-telling magic is present in abundance."--Future Retrospective"--
