KIRKUS REVIEW

A sequel to Storms of Victory (1991), which consisted of short novels by Norton and Griffin set in the aftermath of the Turning, a decisive battle in the history of Norton's Witch World. This time, we get a pair of novellas by Schaub: "Exile" tells of Nolar, a young woman who saves a shard of a powerful magical stone; "Falcon Hope" brings together a young healer named Pyra and Tarlach, Lord of the Falconers. Except for loaning out her setting to the younger writers, Norton plays a very minor role here, presumably having contributed only the very brief framing story told by Duratan the Chronicler, who is seeking out the true story of the Turning. Griffin's part is not clear; her name appears on the title page, but not on either of the two stories. Bland and formulaic stuff; it's hard to imagine these stories making many new fans for Norton, let alone for the junior writers.
