Barbara Hambly – The Darwath Trilogy

This isn’t so much a review, more a note to fellow readers. For those younger amongst us, this trilogy was The Time of the Dark, The Walls of Air, and The Armies of Daylight, published in the early 1980s. I have just been told that the trilogy is being republished as ebooks. I bought the print books at the time and still have those. I’ve recently re-read them (for about the 6th time) and loved them as much as ever. They were and are brilliant fantasy, thoughtful, great character developement, and a brilliant setting. They were followed some 15 years later by Mother of Winter and Icefalcon’s Quest – about which everything I’ve said also applies. If you love good well-written fantasy, with equal time for strong female characters, go buy this trilogy, and the other two if/when they appear as ebooks too. More than 30 years later, I can honestly say that my copies were very well worth what I paid.
