In the tales of World Fantasy Award-winning author Patricia McKillip, nothing is ever as it seems. A mirror is never just a mirror; a forest is never just a forest. Here, it is a place where a witch can hide in her house of bones and a prince can bargain with his heart...where good and evil entwine and wear each others' faces... and where a bird with feathers of fire can quench the fiercest longing...

Review:

In her beautifully written novel In the Forests of Serre, Patricia McKillip (author of Riddle-Master, The Forgotten Beasts of Eld and Ombria in Shadow) again demonstrates her intimate understanding of the mysteries of magic and the human heart. Like Ursula K. Le Guin and Jane Yolen she is one of today's great fantasy writers.

Everyone in the kingdom of Serre avoids the Mother of All Witches, an ugly, powerful and dangerous woman who lives in the Forest of Serre. Then the grief-blinded Prince of Serre rides down the witch's white hen and earns her curse. Prince Ronan believes nothing can be worse than what he has already experienced: the death of his wife and their newborn. But soon the curse destroys what little the prince has left and he wanders lost and half-mad through the Forest of Serre, pursuing a beautiful, elusive firebird that may be an illusion or his doom.

The prince's only hope may be the young Princess Sidonie of Dacia, to whom his brutal father betrothed him against his will and hers. But Princess Sidonie may have no interest in helping a man she's never met. And her powerful, mysterious magician-guardian, Gyre, has secret intentions and desires of his own. --Cynthia Ward, Amazon.com

Review:

"In a twist on the Biblical adage 'Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also, ' McKillip presents a mystical, eerie fantasy about the flight from love--and the haphazard progress toward love...a skillfully told adult fairy tale."
