The Sorceress and the Cygnet characters ↠ 104 Ock set him apart When Corleu and a band of Wayfolk become trapped in an endless swamp he crosses a threshold an unthinkable act for Wayfolk seeking a means of escape This impetuous act. Mckillip has a way of taking me right out of the waking state logical mind and into a realm of dreamlike fantasy with a subtle undercurrent of menace This is really the point of fantasy for me I remember spending most of my time being confused when reading this novel and at the same time it kept me totally enthralled Mckillip has made no attempt to make this novel or its characters relatable in the normal sense These are fantasy characters and like magical people somewhat ineffable in terms of their motivations The story is riddled with obscure arcane archetypes but not recognizable ones and the story unfolds like a dream In spite of the fact that fantasy has the ability to be boundless in terms of imagination much of it follows a very set pattern Unlikely boy hero prophesied to save the realm finds sword goes on uest to defete dark lord at some point dragon appears flailing maiden needs to be rescued Mckillip takes us far beyond the confines of this model and leaves us almost giddy with the sensation of falling in a realm of baffling supernatural wilderness I wish fantasy writers had this kind of vision
