Norton, Andre. The Warding of Witch World. New York: Warner Books, 1996.
Reason read: to continue the series started in April to honor Norton’s memory. She passed in the month of April.
From everything that I can tell, The Warding of Witch World is the final entry in the Witch World series. It is Book Six of the Turning Series. The premise is pretty simple, all the witches come together, future allies and past enemies must bond together to face impending doom. All of the gates of their Witch World are open and evil is about to descend upon them. The title of the book comes from the warding and watching of these gates. A robust cast of creatures, including a giant, come together for the battle of their lives.
I pretty much gave up on this book before it even began.
Author fact: Andre Norton is the pseudonym for Alice Mary Norton.
Book trivia: The Warding of Witch World is a hefty read, totaling 560 pages.
