The Riddle-Master of Hed, Patricia McKillip

Morgon of Hed met the High One's harpist one autumn day when the trade-ships docked at Tol for the season's exchange of goods. 

Thus begins a fairly interesting fantasy book. It tells of Morgon, prince of the simple farmers of Hed, who must escape evil forces and journey to the High One on the mysterious Erlenstar Mountain.With him comes Deth, the High One's harper. No one is who they seem and no one can be trusted. Typical fantasy plot, right? This book has the feel of an old fantasy tale too; there is a distinctive writing style throughout the book. Though the book was sort of confusing, for the most part it was a fairly enjoyable read. The Riddle-Master of Hed is the first of three books about the land that Morgon lives in. And the book ends on a cliff-hanger, so now I feel really compelled to read the second book, just to see what happens.

Read The Riddle-Master of Hed:

  • if you like fantasy
  • if you like adventure
  • if you've read and liked The Forgotten Beasts of Eld (one of McKillip's other books)
222 pages.

Very Good! I would recommend this book!
