Description

An exciting new fantasy in the tradition of Andre Norton's "Witch World"""Lyn McConchie, the coauthor of "The Duke's Ballad "and "Silver May Tarnish," returns with "The Questing Road," a new fantasy that captures the spirit of her successful collaborations with Andre Norton. Searching for a stolen foal, several farming folk inadvertently cross through a gateway into a different world. Not long after, the lord and lady of a nearby keep begin a trip to find the sire of the lady's empathic cat. They too traverse a gate unwittingly and find themselves in the same strange world. On the other side of the gate the two groups meet and discover that the world they have entered is in great danger. The foal has been stolen to be sacrificed as part of a scheme to loose a horde of demons upon the world. Somehow the cat and the foal are the keys to the possible salvation of this world, which may prove a home to them and their owners...or their doom.

Review quote

Praise for "The Questing Road""Lyn McConchie, Andre Norton's collaborator for a number of novels in Norton's universes, has continued Norton's tradition in "The Questing Road". In search of a stolen child, a trio of ranchers pass a gate into another world. A short time later another four (including a telepathic cat) riding purely for adventure, pass a gate into the same world. The two groups meet, and soon discover that the world they have entered is in great danger. The child has been stolen to be sacrificed, which will lose a horde of demons on the land. It is part of a long-laid plot by one who seeks revenge, but others involved have their own schemes. The telepathic cat has a key role to play--if they can figure out what it is in time. The Questing Road is well-written adventure and definitely in Norton's style. It should please Norton fans, and anyone looking for an agreeable read."--"Booklist"Praise for "Silver May Tarnish" by Andre Norton and Lyn McConchie: "In this well-crafted fantasy set in the late Norton's Witch World, she and McConchie, her collaborator on two previous Witch World novels, have produced a seamless page-turner. Although the basic setting is familiar after more than forty years' worth of Witch World stories, the book's quite convincing picture of a land without rulers or laws in the wake of disaster is more than a little timely."--"Booklist""[T]he story of the magical, war-torn realm and those struggling to survive upon it is completely captivating."--"The Richmond Times"
