“The wisdom of this book lies in its difficult solution: Good does not triumph over evil simply because it is good… Lloyd Alexander does not answer questions; he raises them… He keeps his adventures spinning and in the end we are happy in how it all turns out.” —The New York Times

“As always, Alexander peoples his tale with a marvelous cast of individuals, and weaves an intricate story of high adventure that climaxes in a superbly conceived conclusion, which… is reached through carefully built tension and subtly added comic relief.” —Booklist, starred review
