Description:

**BEWARE THE MOON OF THREE RINGS** It was the time of the Moon of the Three Rings when the Free Trader ship Lydis landed on the planet Yiktor and junior crew member Krip Vorlund visited a beast show. He was strangely attracted to the owner of the show animals, a delicate and mysterious woman named Maelen. Soon Krip was caught in a vicious struggle by powerful opponents over the fate of Yiktor—and he learned the nature of Maelen's sorcery when he found his mind trapped in the body of a wolflike creature. Krip would again inhabit a human body—though not his own—and on a second planet, Thoth, he and the crew of the Lydis would be drawn into a battle between ancient powers and nameless evil. Only Maelen the Moon Singer could save them with her superhuman powers—if she didn't bring death and destruction instead. . . .

"Exciting and adventuresome."—*Library Journal* "The primitive world of Yiktor . . . will be entered most receptively by readers . . . the singing prose rings with the cadence of legendary literature."—*The Horn Book* Called "a superb talent" by *The New York Times*, **Andre Norton** was a legend in science fiction, and one of our greatest storytellers. She wrote science fiction novels of very high quality for nearly five decades, beginning with the now-classic novel *Star Man's Son* in 1952. Many of today's top writers, including C.J. Cherryh and Joan D. Vinge, have cited her as a primary influence on their own work. She was Guest of Honor at the 1989 World Science Fiction Convention, and received the Grand Master award from the Science Fiction Writers of America and the Lifetime Achievement Award of the World Fantasy Convention. Astoundingly prolific, with over thirty books in her celebrated "Witch World" series alone, she introduced three generations of SF readers to SF and fantasy, both through her critically acclaimed YA novels and her adult works, and remains today as one of the most popular authors in both fields. ** ### Review "Andre Norton was "one of the most popular writers of our time" Publishers Weekly "Exciting and adventuresome."
