A Taste of Magic
“The Green Ones favored me this day.”
Thus begins A Taste of Magic, the latest magical world creation by Andre Norton.
Wisteria is magically attuned to the world around her. Her senses relish the tastes of magic that the wonders of nature offer. But the peacefulness of her backwoods existence is shattered when her village is attacked by the raiding force of the bellicose Lord Purvis, who leaves only this twenty-something magic wielder and an adolescent lass as the inadvertent survivors.
Wisteria has pledged herself to a mission. Now she and her young ward must brave the wilds beyond their home in pursuit of the ravager who destroyed everyone near and dear to their hearts.
The woman with the Taste of Magic now has a taste for vengeance, and the blood oath she has pledged must be satisfied with the life of Lord Purvis.
“Jean Rabe has not only garnered many awards in the field of imaginative games, but she also has some dozen role-playing novels to her credit, plus numerous short stories and articles. Her store of knowledge concerning war (in all periods), strange civilizations, and magic – white and black – is indeed prodigious.” —Andre Norton“Rabe’s fun, galloping romp of a story launches a new fantasy series….Rabe (Redemption and other titles in the Dragonlance series) deftly puts some beguiling twists on the guardian-angel theme. The rearing steed on the jacket will signal young horse lovers that this is a book for them.” —Publishers Weekly on The Finest Creation by Jean Rabe“The author of several novels set in Wizards of the Coast’s “Forgotten Realms” setting has created her own world and populated it with vibrant characters both human and animal.” —Library Journal on The Finest Creation by Jean Rabe
