    1. Not entirely clear why the title of this book was "Flight of Vengeance" except for an alliterative connection to "Storms of Victory", and neither title reflects the stories within.2 stories, the 2nd completing Seakeep, called Falcon Hope. A lot of explanations and descriptions, some violent deaths and several narrative digressions. I think it would have had rather more energy as a short story by focusing on the essentials.The 1st story was also rather draggy, falling into the travelling trope, a [...]

    2. I considered not getting this book, being morally opposed to vengeance, but it contains necessary continuity stories. It also has a map of Estcarp and one of High Hallack in the front--but so do many other Witch World books.I wish they would put tables of contents in these diptych books.

I'm assuming Andre Norton wrote the framing story and perhaps was involved in the sketching out plots.The first story is very good and very much in the Norton style. It is not until you read a badly written book in her s [...]

    4. What a cheat!  The Witch World descends to a new nadir.One would think from the way vast portions of plot were bypassed by the intervention of a goddess that there was a contract for 'n' pages, and any more could not be tolerated.
