Dare to Go A-Hunting by Andre Norton



Dare to Go A-Hunting by Andre Norton. Chapter One It was warm, too warm for one of the room's inhabitants. However, it was probably discourteous to remark upon the heat though a round drop of sweat gathered just below one of his slightly slanted eyes to trickle down his cheek. There was a small rustle when he shifted position on the uncushioned stool which supported him an uncomfortable height from a floor of tiles matched in brilliant color to form patterns which he could only glance at or it made his eyes ache

Автор: Norton Andre, Книга: Dare to Go A-Hunting, Серия: Free Traders, Жанр: фэнтези, Издание: 1990 . But-I have heard that name-surely I have heard it! Only in the Limits where all manner of spacers come and go, one hears scraps of many tales, or boastings of ventures. Still"-Zoror looked at him kindly-"that is one of the lesser-known names of these people who, it is true, might never have been. Well, it remains, Farree, that I must give you a warning.

Dare to Go A-Hunting by Andre Norton. Chapter One. It was warm, too warm for one of the room's inhabitants. There was a small rustle when he shifted position on the uncushioned stool which supported him an uncomfortable height from a floor of tiles matched in brilliant color to form patterns which he could only glance at or it made his eyes ache. They must have practiced also some form of mind control, for they would keep men within their hold for what seemed a day or a year and then let their captives go, for them to discover that they had really been gone from their homes for a matter of years. There is also the Mingra report. Come and see for yourself.

Dare to Go A-Hunting book. I have to say I found the last book somewhat disappointing, because Farree becomes so detached from his companions that he several times wanders off on his own. This series doesn't have as many murders in it as many other Norton books, but the basic idea that it's possible to forfeit one's right to life is still implicit.

If you haven't discovered the late Andre Norton, you are in for a treat ! I have been collecting her books for 25 years ! This one is part of the Moon Singer series and needs to be read in order. Ms. Norton's fantasies are just that--- total fantasy. No sexual descriptions.....little violence, but beautifully written. Her descriptins of characters/ environments are wonderful. Please read her.......

This is the final story Norton wrote about the Moonsinger Maelin and Krip Vorlund and it s vintage Norton. We finally get to find out where Faree came from and how he came to be stuck in the Limits of Grant's world without a memory.
Wat!?
The series of 4 books is a great read.

Andre Norton published four books in her Moon Singer series: "Moon of Three Rings (1966); "Exiles of the Stars (1971); Flight in Yiktor (1986); and "Dare to Go A-Hunting (1989).

The three main characters from the third Moon Singer novel return in "Dare to Go A-Hunting:" the Free Trader, Krip Vorlund , the former Moon Singer, Maelen, and Farree, who has gotten rid of his hunchback and has sprouted wings. A fourth character will be recognizable to those who are familiar with Andre Norton's SF Universe: a reptilian Zacathan named Zoror, who is a Grand Hist-Techneer (Historian). The Zacathan is trying to help Farree locate his home planet, and has come across legends of winged humanoids from the lost planet, Earth.

Disturbing physical evidence is soon located for sale amongst a sleazy trader's wares: sections of wing similar to Farree's that when touched, give him disquieting visions. The four companions plus various telepathic animals set off for the planet of purloined wings.

What they find there are enough heroes and villains out of Celtic mythology to fill up a trilogy the size of "Lord of the Rings." Only Norton tries to cram them all into the last half of "Dare to Go A-Hunting." Events do get confusing, especially when Farree escapes from one set of captors, only to be subjugated a second, then a third time. The author's descriptions of the war between good and evil are up to her Witch World standards, but too many characters and an incoherent plot will keep this book off of the list of my favorite Nortons.

Dare to Go A-Hunting (1990) is the fourth Fantasy novel in the Moonsinger series, following Flight in Yiktor. The initial work in this sequence is Moon of Three Rings.

In the previous volume, Dung was standing near the beast tent listening to the agony in Toggor's mind. Two pairs of space boots stop near him. He hears someone speaking in his mind, saying there is nothing to fear.

Then Maelen asks him what is going on. Dung tells her about Russtif using a prod on Toggor to make him fight. She comments to Krip that they have found what they seek.

Krip leads the way into the tent. Maelen asks about the price is for the smux. The beastmerchant agrees to sell the smux for two stellars. Krip pays the man and they leave the tent. However, they leave behind mental instruction on how to open the cages.

Togger lets himself out of the cage and grabs hold of Dung's vest. The scavenger cups his hands around the smux and offers him to Krip. The spaceman tells him to take good care of the smux.

In this novel, Maelen was a Moonsinger of the Tlassa. She could mindspeak to other Tlassa as well as many animals. Then she was exiled from Yiktor, but now has permission to return whenever she wishes.

Krip was a member of a Free Trader crew. He became involved with Maelen and had his mind transferred into a Tlassa body. He went with Maelen into exile and is still with her and the little ones.

Dung was a hunchbacked scavenger on Grant's World. Now he is known as Farree. He has been accepted by the Tlassa and has found that the hunch on his back is a pair of wings. Toggor is still his friend, but now he also has Maelen, Krip and Zoror as friends.

Toggor is a smux, a small fighter. He has two oval body masses, eight legs and six eyes. He has poisoned claws on his forward four legs. None knows from where he has come, but a few have shown up occasionally on Grant's World.

Zoror is a Zacanthan who is well versed in legends and myths within the galaxy. He is helping Farree look for others like himself.

In this story, Farree is squirming on a high stool, suffering from the heat within the room. He might be too polite to mention the warmth, but Toggor emits feelings of overheating. Zoror reaches to the wall, flips a switch, and a swift breeze blows through the room.

Then Zoror continues his comments on myths featuring people much like Farree. He says that most such information comes from Terra and its early colonies. He mentions tales of the Little People and the People of the Hills.

Maelen and Krip enter the room accompanied by a fragrance that arouses Farree. The scent comes from some shimmering material. Then he also smells death on the material.

They all examine the scrap and decide that it is from a wing. Zoror pronounces it to be smuggled material. Krip asks whether it is a forbidden import.

They take Farree to the market and he finds more such material. Farree is able to sense the substance when the trader flees them. They track him down and learn more from eavesdropping on his accomplices.

They learn that one of the smugglers was on Wayland's World five years before. Seeing the constellations behind Wayland, Farree recognizes one that he has seen before. They identify a solar system that might contain a habitable world.

Farree and Zoror accompany Maelen and Krip on their ship to a possible homeworld of Farree's people. They land on the planet and Farree is compelled to fly toward someone calling him. On the way, he meets a flying lizard and a barrier in the sky.

This tale puts Farree in the middle of a war. He meets representatives of the various kinds of Little People, but is considered to be a tool of the Guild. Since the only humans known on the planet are the Guild, his friends are called Cursed Ones and attacked by the locals.

This novel is the last in the series. This novel and the prequel are also available in the omnibus edition Moonsinger's Quest.

Highly recommended for Norton fans and for anyone else who enjoys tales of fairies, various magics and technologies, and a bit of romance. Read and enjoy!
