For over twenty years, Patricia A. McKillip has captured the hearts and imaginations of thousands of readers. And although her renowned Riddle-Master trilogy--The Riddle-Master of Hed, Heir of Sea and Fire, and Harpist in the Wind--has been long out of print, it is considered her most enduring and beloved work. Now it is collected in one volume for the first time--the epic journeys of a young prince in a strange land, where wizards have long since vanished...but where magic is waiting to be reborn.

Like Leguin's EarthSea, McKillip's RiddleMaster books are a must read in classic fantasy. Why is there such a thing as a riddlemaster and how can he be the cnetral figure in a classic quest? A wonderful bit of imagination.

Why this series is not more popular is beyond me. The middle book drags a little but it's far better than so many of the books that are rated far above it on this list.
