    Like the last two books this one is told by one of three Tregarth children; this time by Kaththea Her story was the weakest of the three in my opinion There were interesting points but the early parts of the book were a bit of slog It really picked up in the last 13 but the ending itself felt incredibly rushed Overall I enjoyed t

Kaththea the Sorceress called forth a power such as no longer existed on the distant planet known as the Witch World It was a power so great that it could destroy all that she. It settles into this stolid formal narration by Kaththea that speaks of rumination and observation and it s been many years since Witch World and I ve apparently skipped at least the previous two So I dig in and see Kaththea trapped in a precarious social position in a tribal culture where there s a certain jostling for status and alliances and rivalries Kaththea is effectively a captive to the tribe and being held by bonds of blood magic so her ultimate goal is to get away from all this despite that the tribe now relies on her crippled Power to avoid the Shadow strewn landscape of Escore And I settle in and prepare for something C J Cherryh or Marian Zimmer Bradley and am starting to take notes on the tribal power structure and the rivalries forming with the chieftain s youngest wife and the ramifications of Kaththea concealing the actual extent of her near destroyed abilities from the people who rely on them to foresee danger and all of this is going to take so looooong to go anywhere and then the sea rovers suddenly attack and Kaththea falls through a gate into a technologically post apocalyptic world of warring cyborgs and mutant clone soldierssfx Record needle scratchWell that certainly livened things upThe wholedevelopment of the land beyond the gate was certainly exciting in its way but felt like an enormous cop out on everything prior as it dumped the problematic Vupsall tribe and its entanglements and even dropped away the intriguing land of Escore This portion of the Witch World is ancient and ruined scattered with the remnants of adept Power architectural and biological and filled with threats from Shadow That the wreckage of this nation formed the foundation of the original books intrigues me as does the way that Norton built an enormous later series by splintering the story lines into arcs defined by different nations or civilizations on this world As does the Wise Woman gender politics formed possibly in reaction to the abuses of Estcore and its adepts and proceeding to other chafing constraints I may have to go backward and fill in the gaps

He was a witch deprived of power and she needed a guide to regain her lost skills and her lost world There was only this ancient one the opener of gates with force mighty enou. There are later editions of these books but by and large I have the first editions and it s so in this caseLike other Ace books this is a cheap edition with few publishing details But it does at least have an illustrator credit Cover art and illustration by Jeff Jones The illustrations are plain not very good The pictures bear no resemblance whatever to anything in the text which is not atypical of Ace booksThis volume is essentially the third in a sub trilogy the story of the three in one Tregarth triplets The precursor to this volume is that when Kaththea s brother Kemoc hit Kaththea with a magic sword while she was using her powers for evil not for Dinzil any for she had broken off with him by then he apparently created a sort of feedback loop which seemed to have shorted out her powers and it seemed likely to be permanentThis book starts at this point Kaththea has recovered her mental capacities but she can no longer use her powers by the witchly methods she had been taught She hasn t lost the knowledge of spells and such she just can t use themBefore long she begins to fear that attackers can use her as a breach in the defenses of the Valley Thus she is a danger to those she loves most especially her brothersIt is for this reason that she decides that she has to find a way to recover her powers she believes that if she can t control her own powers somebody else will do so to her despite and against her willKaththea s plan is desperate and unrealistic There s no reason to believe that anybody in Estcarp could or would help her But she doesn t see any alternative So she tried to get back to EstcarpBut she fails I should point out that she owes nothing to the Vupsalls who rescue her from an avalanche The evidence is that the man who dug her out had every intention of raping her and then if he felt like it keeping her as a sex slave It s only because the Wisewoman of the Vupsall adopts and trains Kaththea that Kaththea has any hope of recovering her powers but it s not an apprenticeship If she isn t made into a sex slave Kaththea is still bound as a slaveWhether Kaththea would have accepted the role of Wisewoman to the Vupsall if she d been given a free choice or if it had been a matter of indentured servitude until she was successfully retrained becomes irrelevant once the enslavement is accomplished Worse Kaththea is aware that her escape is prevented not only by spells but also by the high probability that the Vupsall will pursue her through unfamiliar territory if she manages to overcome the blood spell binding her to them And she is also aware that she is not being given anything like a comprehensive grounding in her powers and how to use themWhen the time comes that Kaththea is able to make her break for freedom it comes about at least in part because she has made a critical mistake It s a matter of uery design essentially she doesn t consider that asking about her own future a notoriously difficult task will not necessarily comprehend the fate of the Vupsall as a wholeThe resulting disaster is blamed on Kaththea by one of her co wives among the Vupsall the wisewoman is customarily formally married to the chief in a sort of sacred marriage though Kaththea tricks her way out of the actual consummationAttempting to escape the pursuit by enraged Vupsall survivors and any of the raiders who might have followed the escapees Kaththea takes her co wife into the citadel of an ancient adept who has left a worldgate open and left behind his wand when he went through the gateKaththea and her unwilling companion are sucked into the alternate dimension at the other end of the worldgate They find themselves in an almost depopulated world in which war between cyborgs and inhabitants of an underground bunker has rendered the surface almost completely uninhabitableThere she finds not only the ancient adept Hilarion but also family she hadn t expected to see again It seems that in the dimension they ve come to time travels uickly than in the Witch World Hilarion has been enslaved to the mechanistic bunker dwellers for a long time centuries but he doesn t think it s been anything like as long as it has been I should note that the Vupsall survivor Ayilla is treated as baggage by all concerned Nobody seems to consider her as a real person whether gifted with powers or not They drag her around use her to spy on each other and generally treat her as if she had no volition Even at the end there s no real resolution for her she s just left outKaththea s fear of Hilarion is not founded on very sound grounds She has heard legends of the Adepts and she s had bad experiences with Dinzil but that s not really a basis to decide I also don t accept that she has only two choices to mate with him or to break with him entirely Frankly Hilarion is revealed in later books to be something of a pussycat He doesn t seem to have been even tempted to the misuse of power Yes he experimented with worldgates well one at least But he doesn t seem to have done much else with his researches Later he coordinates with researchers into old archives Lormt especially to try to find ways to render the gates harmless But even at this point he isn t a particularly convincing bogeyman

Loved best and might even prove to be a greater evil than the shadow itself Yet there could be no other choice for Kaththea than to call on Hilarion in the death naming For s.
