    1. bookslifewine/r-zarsthors-*Spoilers Below*Bane: [beyn] noun1. death; destruction; ruin.2. Obsolete. that which causes death or destroys lifeI love this book. It's weird and dreamy and at some points really hard to understand (and follow). I've read Zarsthor's Bane many, many times now. I can honestly say that I feel that I find something new during each re-read. I'm also extremely lucky that I located a First Edition Illustrated copy. Zarsthor's Bane reminds me of a fever dream or daydream. Ther [...]

    2. This is the edition I have, though I have had other editions. This edition is illustrated by Evan TenBroek Steadman.The story of Zarsthor's Bane is out of the main sequences. Brixia, the hero (the former lord Marbon is pretty much a zombie for much of the story due to a head injury. His self-appointed squire Dwed is a somewhat hapless guide and guard, who can only evoke Marbon's deceased foster-brother Jartar in hopes that bringing Marbon home will restore his sanity) has totally lost track of t [...]

    3. Last Christmas (2012), I purchased seven of the first eight Witch World novels (at my local, still-in-business-as-of-August-2013 used book store) and have endeavored to read them in the subsequent months. I finished the final four in the last month and have been offering brief reviews anent what I enjoyed about them (with the mild criticism lodged here and there). Zarsthor’s Bane was the last book in the pile and – for my money – the weakest, which is why I only gave it two stars. In compa [...]

    4. Not a bad book, and certainly classic Andre Norton. No romance, really, in it; Brixia, refugee from the Dale-Alizon wars, is caught up in the fate of a boy and his mind-clouded lord and the lord's search for a hereditary treasure, Zarsthor's Bane, through the agency of her companion hunting cat.Marred by wierd illustrations, especially by the illustrator's desire to depict the heroine in a skin bikini when the text makes it clear she is wearing shirt and trews.

    5. lotof wise words inbook showing that arvuements and war caused from them are silly and inconsequential, in the Long run, but at same time it shows our dependence on others and we need others to realise our hopes and dreams ! lots of messages are given us we just need to sort out society and take the messages on board.

    6. Had I forgotten what an oddity this book was? Especially with the "illustrations" and another perplexing cover. But at least the woman on this cover is mainly clothedThe story could have taken place anywhere at any time really, although perhaps it never would have happened at all if Brixia had simply gone to Norsdale Abbey instead of wandering alone for several years. But under geas, she finds a magic flower, detours into the waste to be trapped by a dancing bird woman (well-described but not am [...]

    7. To Andre Norton Fans some of her stories shine because of the development of complex characters or issues. Well this one must have been the Friday afternoon piece. The story plots along, but you never really engage with it, the characters stay flat and you never really understand why the do the things they do. So, if you are a fan, read it, if only to get a scale, how good she can be, if she wants to be, and how flat, if her mind is not really on the job. If you have never read Andre Norton - do [...]

    8. As with some of the other weaker Witch World novels, this was driven by a character having mysterious inner promptings that basically push them into the plot, through the plot, and then hand out the secret to the final confrontation. It's hard to get terribly excited about that. Still, the callouts to the other novels make me loathe to excise the weak works.

    9. When the Nazi occupy the Netherlands, old Jonkheer Norrey calls his grandson to his death bed. He entrusts a necklace called the Flower of Orange to the young in an effort to save the necklace and the family fortune.

    10. Sois is not the bestest Norton I've ever read (and the illustrations seem to have been done by someone who didn't actually read the story) but I enjoyed it. The thing is, I couldn't precisely tell you WHY.

    11. A fantasy tale set in her Witch World era. This tale was a bit confused and jumbled, and made me realize that Norton has a facination with flowers and plants as symbols in her novels. Passing this one on to my son.

    12. Like many of these Andre Norton books, I find myself wondering if there is a backstory somewhere that I missed. Still a good yarn, with minimal characters, which is nice when you are trying to find your way in a new world.

    13. Andre Norton is an excellent storyteller, I grew up on her. But reading her now, I find her style old-fashioned and a real barrier to getting into the story. Her characters are timelessly intriguing, though.

    14. This is another story of High Hallack and is a tale of 2 people who confront light and dark, temptation and redemption. It was a little hard to follow, and the characters seemed to be a little shallow and self centered, and the final confrontation was not to my liking.

    15. There was no real need to make this a Witch World book, but when you've got a world already mapped outTemporally, this is probably set toward the end of the Dales war.
