The third book in the epic fantasy-adventure series from ‘the Godmother of Fantasy’, Diana Wynne Jones. Now back in print! ‘I had not seen how they hated us till I heard them shout. It was terrible.’ Tanaqui and her family have always known they were somehow different from the other villagers. But when the great floods come and they are driven from their home, they begin to realise the part they must play in the destiny of the land. As Tanaqui weaves the story of their frightening journey to the sea and the terrifying, powerful evil of the mage Kankredin, she realises the desperate need to understand the meaning of it all. Can she fit the pieces of the puzzle together in time to halt Kankredin’s destruction?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm love this book? Wow...I did not see any of this coming...I should have, but I did not. Everything is right there. It's Genius. A Genius book. I am going to reread the first two, and this one, before starting on The Crown of Dalemark. In any case this is my favourite so far, and I'm trying to be more coherent but it's very difficult, because there are so many details and magics and it really is WOVEN, in a beautiful, stunning way. Let's just say I love Tanaqui and her little family, and all of their quirks and imperfections, and I love the RIVER and the journey they go on. Heavier than most Diana Wynne Jones books, but equally magical, if a little more subtle. A Winner. Makes me want to write a Masterpiece of my own.
