Admittedly, Tanith Lee has written better stories, but this may simply be my preference toward her adult work. Writing from the perspective of a young girl who resents her older sisters, who apparently hit puberty and became just awful, makes it seem a lot more immature than it probably should have. That aside, there's all the trademark fancifulness you'd find in her other work. Dragons and fantasy worlds with a mix of futuristic sci-fi thrown in for good measure. I'd definitely recommend this to a young audience and anyone who considers themselves a collector of Lee's work.
