For over twenty years, Patricia A. McKillip has captured the hearts and imaginations of thousands of readers. And although her renowned Riddle-Master trilogy--The Riddle-Master of Hed, Heir of Sea and Fire, and Harpist in the Wind--has been long out of print, it is considered her most enduring and beloved work. Now it is collected in one volume for the first time--the epic journeys of a young prince in a strange land, where wizards have long since vanished...but where magic is waiting to be reborn.


Now in one special collector's edition--the epic journeys of a young prince in a strange land, where wizards have long since vanished . . . but where magic is waiting to be reborn.

Kelly L, February 24, 2012 (view all comments by Kelly L)
Patricia A. McKillip’s trilogy, collected here in one volume and with a new introduction, is quite a voyage. The hero, Morgon, is destined to solve the riddle of the three stars on his forehead. Obviously set apart for a grand destiny, he longs only for a peaceful existence on the simple island where he, as prince, possesses a unique communion with his land. Unfortunately, peace is not in his future.

The first book, The Riddle Master of Hed, tells of how Morgon journeys from Hed in the company of the High One’s harpist, intending to make the long trek to ask the High One himself the meaning of his birthmark. In Heir of Sea and Fire, Raederle, Morgon’s intended, goes searching for him. She learns that she is heir to a different kind of magic, which might be the destructive force that Morgon has been struggling against. In the conclusion to the trilogy, Harpist in the Wind, the great reveal occurs: Morgon finally unravels the riddle of his birthright.

Admirers of Patricia A. McKillip, Patricia C. Wrede, Robin McKinley, Sherwood Smith, and other authors of high fantasy will like this trilogy. Some, like me, might find they prefer McKillip’s more recent work.
