9780142403563: Waters Luminous and Deep

A spellbinding collection of short stories by the author of the Darkangel and Firebringer trilogies.

Meredith Ann Pierce’s acclaimed novels are the proof of a remarkable imagination. Here is more proof—eight shorter works of fiction, each with a strong heroine, a tangibly imagined world, and unforgettable imagery. Included here are the text to her only picture book, "Where the Wild Geese Go"; the tale that showed a teenaged Meredith that she was, indeed, a writer ("In Quest of the Icerose"); and a powerful novella originally commissioned by SFWA Grandmaster Andre Norton ("Rampion"). Waters Luminous and Deep encapsulates the evolution of one writer’s unmistakable style, and has all of the power of her longer work.
"A shimmering, stirring archipelago of tales."—Booklist

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6-9-A true storyteller's voice resounds throughout these tales, half of which are published for the first time here. As Pierce indicates in her introduction, water figures in all of the stories as demon, obstacle, or savior. The intricate thread of each selection will securely tie up readers' imagination and hold it to the end. The triumph of good over evil is a common theme as is the quest for independence and the strength and cleverness of women. In "The Fall of Ys," the author twists a traditional Celtic tale around. "Where the Wild Geese Go" involves an adventure that turns out to be a dream somewhat reminiscent of Dorothy's realization in The Wizard of Oz. In "Icerose," two friends work together to free their land from the power of the Icewitch. "Rafiddilee," written when Pierce was 14, is about a dwarf sold into bondage and his love for a young queen. A humorous tone underlies "The Sea Hag," while magic plays a part in "The Frogskin Slippers." The final tale, "Rampion," is the most intricate and has a welcome, unexpected ending. This is a rich and rewarding collection that will appeal to a wide audience.-Renee Steinberg, formerly at Fieldstone Middle School, Montvale, NJ
