Review: Nina Kiriki Hoffman, The Silent Strength of Stones (fantasy novel)

Alan P. Scott - Rants - Reviews

Escape to Witch Mountain for grownups

Escape to Witch Mountain for grownups. And if you think that's a slam, you don't know how I feel about that classic YA novel and Disney movie. Hoffman's mining some familiar territory (Zenna Henderson hit the motherlode here long ago) but her modern sensibilities and deft hand with relationships keep this book from seeming at all stale to me. This is one series (there is a previous book, The Thread that Binds the Bones) that I find myself wanting to continue - Hoffman's not done telling the story yet.
