Novel Tease

Random meanderings about the books I love—or don't. 

Interspersed with observations about my hobbies: Beer & Wine, Bridge, Bikes and Bow-wows.

Horn Crown (Witch World, #14) - Andre Norton For the first time in this re-reading of the Witch World novels, I'm disappointed.
As noted in the last review, there's an awful lot of "geas", men & women unable to do anything but what is fated. In this story, we come to a really annoying denoument when Norton, apparently completely misunderstanding the point of the three-part Goddess, allows the devotee of the Maid to be forced (despite protestations that it's only happening by her own will) to give herself to the hero. Gag me!
