    One thought on “Khyren”

    1. I am re-reading this more than 20 years after I first read it. while I have forgotten most of it, I remember feeling it was a mind-blowing read and one of my all-time favourites. I am now more than a third through it, and still enjoying it.Finished it today a lot of fun and an enjoyable read, very well-written. Only 4 stars because the only flaw, a matter of personal taste was I wanted Dara to be gay.

    2. A excellent variation on the classic fantasy theme of modern person is sucked into a Fantasy world. From there the book twists into a surprising science fiction story, and never went where I thought it would. I almost didn't read this, and man am I glad rescued it from the sell pile. Turned out to be a really great read!

    3. Please don't judge this book by its cover. Between the weird, pale blue covers is a great tale of world-travel, an 80s woman from the United States suddenly lost in the wilderness of some other planet.Romantic, adventurous, fun, surprising, violent, ironic, and smooth, this book is a great, quick read.

    4. This is an excellent book about an Earth woman who is transported to another planet through an accident. She is enslaved by kind people and learns to live with them. She has all the usual cultural differences to get used to as she can never go home again. She becomes an object of mystical powers because she has had a child and the people no longer have children.
