Entertaining. I like the setup, with the telepathic group. The main character takes a bit too long to make decisions on his own, instead of just going with the flow and I found some of the telepathic experiences a bit too vague and taking too long, but other than that I liked it.

Not as good as the first one in the series, The Snow Queen.

A collection of short stories and longer works by Joan D Vinge.

The stories are mainly SF but there is one fantasy story about a son of a king who goes through a lot of suffering and pain after the throne is usurped, in order to try to get back his throne, and has to subjugate a storm dragon to help him do so. It is mainly about the relationship between him and a young woman who is servant to the wise woman/witch who helps him. Another story is a follow up to one of Vinge's novels, Psiron, this story being Psiren. Not my favourite of the book, I found it a bit self pitying with lots of wallowing by the characters.

The title story is probably the best and was featured originally in 'Millennial Women', edited by Virginia Kidd, which I read just before this book.
