Andre Norton, the celebrated author of "Witch World" and many other fantasy adventures, offers a new novel unique among her works, set in a realm not dissimilar to northern England in the sixteenth century. Drucilla, Sabina, and Tamara, identical sisters born to Desmond, Earl of Skorpys, understand the price of being princesses in a realm bordered by fractious neighbors. For generations their land has been plagued by incursions, raiding parties, and more serious conflicts with Gurlyon, the land to their North. But when these three plucky young ladies are kidnapped as part of a plot to undermine their father's realm, they are taken to a mysterious realm where they experience terrors unlike anything they could imagine. Their captors, fearing pursuit, thrust the princesses into a deep recess in a bizarre underworld called the Dismals. Once there, they must fend off hideous creatures, and a young man who claims to be lord of this dark, forbidding realm. Not sure whether he is friend or foe, they must depend on their wits, on each other, and on the mind-link that binds them together. Only thus can they escape the bizarre nether-realm they must roam in search of a way home. Their travails test them in ways they cannot foresee, both physically and magically. Powerful forces work against them, but together they may yet escape, and help right the wrong that brought them to the strange realm in the first place.… (mere)

Meh. It's supposed to be the Border Marches, but it's very much High Hallack in terms of magic and Ancient Ones etc. Nice that she _didn't_ marry all of them off by the end of the book, though. Lots of rather vague adventures and them being exhausted by their new magic skills. Not sorry I read it, but I have no particular interest in rereading, ever. ( )

The dialog in this book was so dreadful and stilted, I only read about 50% of it. I began hoping that something would kill and eat these women when they were lost in the caves, just so they would stop "prithee" and "forsooth!" -ing each other. OY. ( )

Some books awe with their breadth and scope. Others are finely crafted, paying attention to detail and art. This is one of the latter.The story structure itself is masterful: there are no unnecessary, self-serving, experimental or pompous passages anywhere. Everything has its place and its pace, and it all fits together beautifully. Tension and resolution feel perfectly balanced.What this book lacks is characters I actually care about. The three main characters do change somewhat during the story, but they are the only ones. I have little sympathy for them (apart from the kind that goes "Lookout!"), and no wish to know what happens after the end. Conversations are formulaic and wooden, and the formality that pervades the telling never relaxes.This is as fine an example as I could wish for why powerful characterization outweighs a dynamic plot.
