Millions of copies of "Witch World" have been sold since Andre Norton first wrote about this magical and exciting world. Told with freshness against the rich Witch World background, this fast-paced adventure is a timeless story of the courage and resourcefulness of Lorcan, heir to Erendale, and Meive, a maiden of Landale. After the death and destruction of war takes a terrible toll on both their dales, Lorcan, leading a band of blank shields from other war-torn dales, makes a stand in Meive's dale, where they hope to create a safe place where those who have lost land or kin in the war can start new lives. Aided by the magic of a swarm of warrior bees and a cat with uncanny abilities, Lorcan, Meive, and their newfound clan folk fight for freedom, for respect...and for their lives, in a world where all they know has been destroyed by enemies from afar and traitors within their midst.
