    One doesn’t read Andre Norton to explore the deeper uestions of existence; one reads her because they want to read a solidly written adventure fast paced and satisfying With Norton this is usually guaranteed At least with her earlier stuff Some of the collaborations she embarked on before her death leave much to be desired Fortunately with these stories we have Norton at her best Warlock is actually an omnibus edition of three novels Storm Over Warlock Ordeal in Otherwhere and Forerunner Foray The first two are natural siblings one following immediately after the other in time and both having many of the same characters Except for the passing fact that one of the characters in the third is the son of the protagonists from the first two books Forerunner Foray really has no relationship to the other two Perhaps it was a publisher’s decisionAll three are classic Norton however The heroes are young outcasts who must discover who they are and make a place for themselves in the world animals play a significant role in that uest and there’s the usual exploration of the use and misuse of psychic powersI like Norton She was one of my favorite authors when I was young She can be formulaic and like all authors she can pen the occasional “stinker” but she was a deeper writer than one might suspect Without beating her audience about the head all of her heroes are self reliant often young men and women who succeed through loyalty to their friends using their heads and following the better impulses to be found in the human animalI don’t know that I would recommend Norton to older adults who haven’t already read her but I would recommend these novels to fans of Norton and to the child or young adult interested in speculative fiction but unsure where to begin actually before these I would recommend Witch World the Solar ueen series or The Zero Stone but in their absence the present tomes aren’t bad places to begin

    Science Fiction 2002 Delightful 3 in one book by Andre Norton one of my favorite Sci Fi authors Warlock is a planet assumed to be without intelligent life and the attempt to annex it to the System The book begins with Storm over Warlock about a low ranking explorer two wolverines and a somewhat crazed captain who survive an attack by other aliens and the finding of a race of indigent people with unexpected powers Next are Ordeal in Otherwhere and Forerunner Foray both which continue the would be settlers and the native peoples I enjoyed reading these books

    Kind of disappointing overall especially for the first three books in a series It's best not to think of this as a trilogy or series as much as books in a shared universe that happen in an order Not exactly tightly plotted across them and it does tend to meander a bit I'll be holding off reading the other collection of the remaining volumes and try to withhold full judgment until then But not rushing to read them either
