Voima

A breakthrough quest fantasy by the author of A Bad Spell in Yurt. Earth and sky are ruled by the immortal Wanderers, the lords of voima--the magical force of life and renewal. But an upheaval is coming, so the Wanderers enlist the help of three young mortals, who will be swept into a tremendous conflict.From BooklistThe latest novel from a promising new fantasist uses the classic theme of a mortal drawn, more or less against his will, into the world of the fairies or the gods or whatever. In this case, our hero finds himself in a universe basically that of the Nibelungenlied--one that seems to be acquiring considerable popularity as a fantasy setting. Along with his lady and best friend, he becomes crucial to saving the gods from Ragnarok. Overall, the book is competently written, more than slightly original in its handling of both the theme and the background, and well paced enough to keep the pages turning. Roland Green *
