A young heir is drawn into a labyrinth of deception, death, and magical destiny in this bold adventure in the bestselling Witch World series.   Kethan is heir to the throne of Car Do Prawn in the realm of Arvon--but there is little he has to be proud of. He can sense trouble brewing amongst the people. And he can feel the weight of those who wish to bend his will to their own. From his overbearing mother, the Lady Heroise, and her duplicitous Wise Woman, Ursilla, to his vindictive cousin, Maughus, they all want to rule through him when he comes of age.   But his attention is turned from such palace intrigues when a strange traveler gifts him a belt of leopard skin embossed with a stone--a jargoon--carved in the shape of a predatory snow cat.   At first, the belt intrigues Kethan. Then it entrances him, for it possesses great magical powers--and it is up to Kethan to learn how to control them. He will need to tread a crooked path between good and evil if he is to retain his soul even as his body transforms into a form more lethal than anything he's ever dreamed.  … (mere)

The Jargoon Pard is the companion piece to Crystal Gryphon
and the prequel to The Year of the Unicorn.
A science fiction story with a fantasy twist. Kethan is the chosen one. From the moment of his birth he was destined to lead his family. With the help of a magic belt, his fate is solidified, despite the jealousies of an evil woman, his mother's Wise Woman.
Full confession: I didn't really get into The Jargoon Pard. ( )

Not what I have grown to love from Andre Norton. Wouldn't recommend it -- even to an A.N. fan. ( )
  SMBrick | Feb 25, 2018 |
A nicely developed book, with main character who learns to develop his own gifts and internal strengths. It's been a long time since I read anything from Norton, and this reminds me why she was one of my favorite authors when I first found sci fi. She shows a world where earth knowledge/green magic are positive forces for saving a society grown too power-hungry & self-centered.
I like the lengthy chapter titles, reminiscent of Eddison (& other early authors). ( )

Pure fun. You'll get caught in Kethan's head as he learns the secrets of his birth and destiny. ( )

Acknowledgments
The author wishes to express her appreciation for the aid rendered on two technical matters connected with this book.
First to Mrs. Merrill Gladstone of the "Rock Pile" who produced a jargoon and also the information concerning the finding of such semiprecious stones, their weight, color and the like.
Second to Mrs. Phyllis Schlemmer, the sensitive, who demonstrated the various forms of tarot and then worked out the proper horoscope tarot reading for Kethan.

Many are the chronicles of Arvon, for that is a land old beyond the imaginings of men, even though those men may be born of the Elder Races and, therefore, long in their own lives.
Car Do Prawn was not the greatest of the Keeps that gave allegiance to the Red Mantle Overlord, nor the richest.
