SONG FOR THE BASILISK
Genre: Science Fiction, General Science Fiction
A fantasist of the highest order, Patricia McKillip delights her loyal audience with SONG FOR THE BASILISK (4), a September hardcover. All the young man called Rook remembers of his past is firea fire that left him a traumatized little boy deeply in need of the healing grace of the bards of Luly. It is, therefore, not surprising that he has no wish to remember who he really is. But a threat to the safety of Luly forces him to look beyond his refuge to find the power-hungry basilisk who destroyed his family. The prose is exquisite and the magic sublime for lucky readers.
