The sorceress Frostflower could bring a babe from seed to term in the course of a winter's afternoon. The swordswoman Thorn could strew a field with corpses in a moment's battle rage.

And together, foolishly, they set out to survive...

Frostflower and Thorn book. I enjoyed the full book about them, but I think Phyllis Ann Karr does much better in the short story format. you have to admire how THOROUGH Karr is in coming up with I first read a short story about the characters Frostflower and Thorn ("The Garnet and the. Glory") almost 20 years ago, and loved it. Read on the Scribd mobile app. Download the free Scribd mobile app to read anytime,.

I first encountered the characters Frostflower and the swordlady Thorn in Marion Zimmer Bradley's first Sword and Sorceress anthology - FROSTFLOWER AND THORN introduces the duo and their world, where the peaceful sorcerons are despised by the general populace. The two title characters are polar opposites, thrown together by chance meeting, and kept together by their growing friendship through the dangers of the Tanglelands, the scheming of the Farmer-Priests, and the suspicions of the world-at-large.

Read this in the early 80's, loved the adventure. Lost it! Saw it in Amazon and bought it to read again!

The best part of this book is the world. Karr really thought it out- the social classes, the magical systems, the theologies, and the economics. It's basically a spin on feudal, but with the towns more independent. The prejudice against the sorcerers is rampant, partly because their theology differs from most (most are polytheists; the sorcerers are monotheists), and because of their power. The sorcerers are feared, even though they are utterly non-violent.

The sex/gender egalitarianism is also a surprise. ALL the soldiers are women; men are not seen as suited to that lifestyle... and soldiers have a social status higher than that of merchants, etc.

So- the world is fascinating, and well-worth visiting.

The characters are distinctly drawn, sometimes in an exaggerated way, espeically with the swordswomen. The plot hinges on choices various well-described characters make.

I'm giving it a 4, though, because some of the violence, and the carefully described tortures, were shocking. OK, maybe that's a good thing... but it's not necessarily what I want to read unless I'm pre-warned.

Also, some of the action got repetitive. Escape from the pursuers kept going around in circles, and it felt stuck. Eventually things resolved... but only after a LOT of static circling. Karr tried to raise the stakes each time, and did- but it still felt static to me.

It's worth reading for the world, if you are prepared for the ugliness. (The ugliness was not exactly gratuitous, but I'm not convinced so much of it was necesary, either.)

I first encountered the characters Frostflower and the swordlady Thorn in Marion Zimmer Bradley's first Sword and Sorceress anthology -- FROSTFLOWER AND THORN introduces the duo and their world, where the peaceful sorcerons are despised by the general populace. The two title characters are polar opposites, thrown together by chance meeting, and kept together by their growing friendship through the dangers of the Tanglelands, the scheming of the Farmer-Priests, and the suspicions of the world-at-large. Frostflower is the peaceful sorceress, who wouldn't dream of harming anyone -- for to do so would be to lose her sorceress powers! And Thorn is the tough, gritty warrior who wouldn't think twice to run someone through, especially when her life is on the line! This is a very entertaining read, in a world that's very different from what one normally finds in today's fantasy novels.

Wow, I was floored by this book. It is not your standard fantasy romp. The system of magic is unique and very interesting. Character development is thorough. The action is intense. A great read.

This was the first fantasy novel I ever read, back in the eighties. I often think of it, because the plot line and characters are so atypical. I'm so glad it's now available on kindle.
