A very typical McKillip fantasy novel. In a vast palace by the sea, there is a library under the palace. The librarians take in foundlings, including one young girl, Nepenthe. In a short span of days she is given two unusual pieces to translate - a document on strange 'paper' with a text of fishes and a small book, with an alphabet of thorns/briars. Add to the cast a young wizard, an old wizardess, a young male librarian desperately in love with Nepenthe and an equally young queen totally out of her element. There are big magical things going on, as well as small ones and it all takes place fairly quickly in this short novel. Great characters and great atmosphere, as always.… (mere)

In a classic McKillip style tale, a knight chases all over Skye, a part of the kingdom where magic still happens, while multiple magical women either observe the plot, stir the plot, or are trapped in it. Mythic and magical, this reminds me more of the Harper books than some of her others. As is typical with McKillip, this is strong on magic and character and not dependent on action.

This book was exactly what I wanted in terms of tone and content at the time I picked it up. I recommend it for those times you want a well-wrought modern fantasy.

Quick Word: Only enjoyed two of the stories, but the first was especially original. I also took pleasure from the story by Sharon Shinn, which, as always, has beautiful characterization and imagery.
