    1 thought on “Ware Hawk”

    1. One of the problems with sequencing the Witch World books is that many of them are apparently written independently--and later retrospectively incorporated into other stories.Tirtha, who is the primary viewpoint character in the story, is severely wounded partway through the story (a broken back, to all appearances). This renders the story more than a little inchoate. It might have improved matters to have more than one viewpoint character.Given the apparent (and implied actual) age of Alon in t [...]

    2. My first imperfect hero, and he set the tone for all of the other favorite heroes in my reading life.

    3. I haven't read this book in awhile but it was a favorite of mine when I was a kid. It's not a perfect book but I love the imaginative world Andre Norton created. I also love that she didn't always tie her stories up with neat little bows. There is always a feeling of discovery when I read these books. Most of the Witch World books can be read as stand alones but you will get more out of them as you read other books in the series.

    4. This is the book responsible for me getting into science fiction fatasy, if i had never read this book i probably wouldn't be reading today.

    5. Andre Norton was one of the fundamental writers of my youth.Her stories of human relationships with wild animals were powerful, unique, almost visionary. At least to me.Alice Mary Norton took the Edgar Rice Burroughs Tradition into a wonderful otherworld of her own creation. Part of her magnificent Witch World series, WARE HAWK is perhaps her darkest vision. It's the tale of Tirtha, last of her clan, and the lone Falconer, Nirel. Together they set out to reach the mountained Eyrie known as Hawkh [...]

    6. Great read!Andre Norton wrote a compelling story that holds your attention all the way to the end. It is worth reading!

    7. This book was a total waste of time! The only reason I kept reading was because I thought something would happen. Well guess what? Nothing happened!!! I struggled through 250 pages, only to be disappointed. Here is a list of my disappointments:1. The entire story kept promising a huge battle scene. Well, the battle scene with the big, bad villain lasted a few paragraphs. Agh! What a let-down.2. The heroine had a secret that the author wouldn't reveal until near the end. Throughout the book, the [...]

    8. A tough broad and a Falconer strike out on a quest, as he is hired to take her through the turned mountains between Estcarp and Karsten. Relatively low-key drama (largely internal) and interactions overall, and an all too happy ending, metal hand and all, but a very descriptive narrative. Once again, a female narrator, Tirtha, and only hints of what the Falconer may be thinking. The addition of a boy, Alon, Escore, and the Ninutra adept and characters from "Trey of Swords" make an appearance. Th [...]

    9. This is one of my favorite Andre Norton's. It's almost a romance. I love stories with a blank shield or a sell sword. Here is one who is also from a woman hating race who has to work for a woman and who eventually gives up his way of life (even if that way of life has been destroyed) to settle down with her. Plenty of action and the normal Norton type of hallucinations and magic use.

    10. The title of this book is clearly 'Ware Hawk, with an apostrophe to indicate that it's short for 'Beware'. It should be searchable that way, but it's not.This book can be considered a kind of prequel to Songsmith, since the character Alon is introduced in it, as a boy smaller than his age would imply.Also, there are links to Trey of Swords herein.

    11. Tirtha is the last of her line. Her clan has been destroyed by those who had the Old Race. Using her magical powers and guided by a falconer, she tries to reach her ancestral home. But the Dark One stands in her way.

    12. I'm not sure where they got this title, but the Trey of Swords part is a totally different book, which is also set in Witch World.
