An exciting, magical new novel of Andre Norton's fabulous Witch World

Orphans of the Storm
Lorcan was the son of the noble house of Erondale, but when war came to the dales and his father was killed, he could only flee to safety and hope for a better day. Fostered by relatives until he was turned out by a vicious cousin jealous of his legacy, Lorcan joined with others to fight marauders bent on murder and looting. All the while, Lorcan hoped for peace and a place he could settle and begin anew.

Meive, a noble lass of Landale, was lucky to survive a brutal attack on her dale led by a malcontent who joined with marauders for his own revenge. Like Lorcan, Meive sought only a haven from the violence, a bit of land where she could keep the honeybees that were her blessing and her responsibility.

When these two dispossessed young people meet, neither knows what will come of it. But together they are determined to fight the marauders and reclaim the ravaged land. With a dedicated band of loyal companions and the help of Goddess-blessed warrior bees, they will fight to the last to stake their claim for freedom and a new life. But Lorcan's vengeful cousin, riding with a crew of bloody raiders, could shatter the dream of a peaceful land . . .

This story takes place in the Dales after the Hounds of Alizon have been driven out. Norton is shepherding yet another protege author once again. If you haven't read any of the Witch World books, the earliest books set in that world are far better and should be read first. If you have read those, you will enjoy this tale of a disinherited knight and a lady in tune with bees. Norton really knows how to move her plots along while quickly giving you the feel of the the people and places in them.

Silver May Tarnish --- by Andre Norton and Lyn McConchie --- Evil is vanquished and justice and goodness prevail in this novel that has a decidedly medieval cast to its setting. The narration alternates between the two protagonists who deploy cunning; the icy powers of winter; and the powers of their environment as they battle those who would destroy them. A truly engrossing novel that is hard to put down.
