    "Engaging Fantasy"

    The lords of High Hallack have pledged thirteen brides to the Were Riders of the Wastelands. Gillan, having grown up as a foundling child who survived a shipwreck, takes the place of a friend so that she can leave the Abbey of Norstead to seek her fate outside its confining, monotonous safety.

    We find that Gillan is of the blood of Escarp and manifests the powers of its witches. This complicates matters for the Were Riders, especially for Herrel, her chosen mate.

    This was the first of the Witchworld novels located in High Hallack and one of the most sophisticated in the series. While seeing through the mists of deceptions and magic woven against her, she makes decisions and choices that help her character become full and developed.

    Kate Rudd does an admirable, but not spectacular, job in its narration.

    "Reread As an Adult"
    What made the experience of listening to Year of the Unicorn the most enjoyable?

    Loved this book as a kid! So happy to see it was an audio-book now!


    Any additional comments?

    I do have a problem with Andre Norton's rambling style as an adult. As a kid, I just zeroed in on the story.

    "Fantastic Fantasy"

    I read the Witch World series years ago, and was thrilled to discover that some of its books were available on audible.com. It is like Harry Potter for adults, with a rich fantasy world of adventure and magic. I only wish that more of Andre Norton's awesome Witch World series were available on audiobook. There's about a dozen of them, if I remember right. Kate Rudd did a great job of narrating the Year of the Unicorn, which is written from a woman's point of view. If you love fantasy, adventure, and magic, this series is for you! Welcome to Witch World!!!

    "Not my Favorite"
    What disappointed you about Year of the Unicorn?

    I enjoyed the first two books of the series and had high hopes for this one, only to find it somewhat dry and unengaging.


    What could Andre Norton have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I'm not a fan of first-person narrative.


    What aspect of Kate Rudd’s performance would you have changed?

    I found her voice a bit too high-pitched for the material and she could have payed closer attention to pronunciation.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Year of the Unicorn?

    I'd have suggested a different book, entirely.
