And now, by royal decree, the displaced must turn westward toward the mountains... venturing into the perilous woodland domain of a strange and secret race. Once again, Andre Norton displays her unparalleled imagination and astonishing storytelling abilities to present a unique and unforgettable fantasy that is at once a breathtaking magical adventure, and a cautionary fable for our time. The King"s lottery has determined that young Twilla must marry - for only the wedded can survive the terrible fate awaiting those who penetrate the primeval forest. An orphaned apprentice to a renowned wise woman, Twilla will not proceed unprotected, however. For she carries on her journey a talisman of great astonishing artifact that obscures and illuminates, that alters appearance and perception. But it alone cannot guard Twilla - as she weaves her way from peril to peril in the company of Ylon, a commander"s son tragically blinded by a forgotten sorcery. For the hidden peoples who inhabit the wood are also armed - possessing mystical weapons of the body, mind and spirit that they will freely wield to repel an unwanted human invasion. Now two armies prepare to do battle - and only Twilla can avert the impending bloody hostilities. For only she can rescue the vanquished of an ancient war of magicks. . .and shape the destiny of a disputed land.
