Three wanderers. Three exiles. Three quests linked together between the moon of three rings.

MAELEN: Exiled thassa sorceress, stealer-of-bodys, Moon Singer; she returns to her forbidden home seeking renewal and redemption.

KRIP VORLUND: Telepath starman in a forerunners body, he seeks to stop the pirates from plundering the galaxys most ancient heritage, and most fearsome weapons.

Farree: A hunchbacked child with no memory of a past nor hope for the future, his only friend a venomous hunting pet: he seeks  his wanderers turned companies, they are exiles turned champions on a single path to three destinations

“There is nothing to fear,” That was the other one, the female,who spoke now. Beside the fairness of her companion she was a fire glowing—hair as red as one of Russtif’s oil lamps was braided and looped about her head to look like a heavy crown. She was—  The small body uncoiled. Clawed hands went out to the big basket and drew the hunched body up as far as nature would let it. For it was a very crooked body, hunched forward by a misshapen burden at shoulder level, as that the head had to be raised to an uncomfortable angle to see the other two at all.

Arms and legs were thin, their greenish skin encrusted with dirt. The mass of uncombed hair was black, gray with dust at places, but black underneath. “A child.” It was the space man who said that aloud. “what—” The woman made a gesture with one hand. There was a listening look about her. Could she hear Toggor to? “This one, yes,”she said. “But also another.” “Is that not right little one?” The answer was pulled out by the intent gaze of her eyes— coming before thought muffled it with caution. “He—Russtif—he would make Toggor play. It is cold—too cold. Toggor hurts from the cold. “So?” she stooped to set a hand beneath the chin of the small, bent maimed figure. From her touch, from the tips of her fingers something warm and good flooded right into the shaking body. “Toggor is what?” “My—my friend.” That was not quite the way of it either, but they were the closest words could be found. There was a hiss of breath from the man, the woman’s lips fitted tightly together. She was angry—not like Russtif, all noise and quick to aim a blow—but neither was her anger turned toward the one in front of her. ” We may have found what we seek.” She spoke above the bowed head to her companion. “And who are you ?” Again warmth flowed from her.

When I read this book I had to stop and think how many different kinds of people we are inside. Like Farree maybe we don’t know what our potential is yet. We move forward in our life looking for the answer. Or Krip, he’s one thing on the outside and another on the inside. How many of us feel that way? In a previous book he lost his body and was given another one. Then there is Maelen maybe we’re like her standing for something we believe in and losing our family and friends because of it.

I love Andre Norton‘s books and read them over and over. I enjoy her science fiction ideas and the very real feelings that her characters portray. Flight in  Yiktor is full of surprises and beauty.

I would recommend this book to teens and adults a like
