Epithalamium by Wild Iris

'"But water is always different," Therru says. "My father told me that. Every wave that rolls in to Gont Port once broke upon the rocks of SolÉa when it was new."' Wild Iris achieves a delicate balance here between Therru & Tehanu, the girl firmly rooted in the prosaic Gontish life & the embodiment of the mysterious Other. The writing has a lovely sense of mystery and poetry

in silence, and in splendor by mjules

'She thinks it was neater the first time, the way she grew inside her grave-clothes, inside the rituals of the Nameless Ones.' A beautifully written study of Tenar after Tombs that retreads some old ground, but emerges somewhere fresh by the end
