Another goodie by Norton. Some of hers (Witchworld, for instance) I can take or leave, but I really liked this one.

This is a most enjoyable read. Meet Halwice, herbwoman extraordinare; Wiladene, her assistant who has a nose for determining good, evil and different people as well as all other odors; Mahart, sheltered princess who has so much to learn about the world; The Bat, spy for the king; and so many other intriguing characters. This is a classic tale of good versus evil with kingdoms at risk and a bit of romance thrown in between Wiladene and The Bat and the princess and a warrior prince who has no time for simpering women. I quite liked it.
