Publisher's Summary

Andre Norton enthralled readers for decades with thrilling tales of people challenged to the limits of their endurance in epic battles of good against evil. None are more memorable than her Witch World novels.
Far from the besieged home of Simon and Jaelithe, in peaceful Norsdale, we meet Gillan, who longs to leave her dull life in a secluded country abbey. But when her wish comes true, she finds more than a little adventure. As she ventures out, not only is her life in danger, but also the power that lies within her, waiting to be discovered.

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.
