Windswept Fantasy writer Andre Norton, a master of the genre for decades, now offers the captivating Wind in the Stone. In Norton's glorious new story, the student sorcerer Irasmus concocts an evil campaign to enslave the people of the Valley. This story is the second in a series, each focusing on one of the senses.
Hearing can be both of the ear and the mind. Cerlyn has the hearing gift, but Fogar is a captive tool of Irasmus. Cerlyn is determined to release her kinsman, Fogar, from Irasmus's control. Together, they must courageously struggle against dark power until the Wind once again sings in the stone and the Valley people are free.
