I got this when I was a kid, and I didn't appreciate it then, because I was too much like Mallory and wanted magical enchanters that granted wishes. I was a big fan of Ruth Chew, whose witches were also often wanting or awkward with their powers. But this book insisted too much on mortals being greedy for magic and not relying on human powers to solve problems. I've been re-reading his Prydain chronicles and decided to re-visit this. When I was a child I didn't appreciate how strong the female character Mallory is, and how clever. And the message of the book, that mortals are more powerful than magicians, was much more enjoyable as an adult. It's a clever and well crafted story, with great plotting, and a very satisfying ending.
