Something of a classic; reprinted in the Ballantine Adult Fantasy pocketbook series. "Three children are drawn into another world where a fierce conflict for power is waging." Author;s first novel and first of her trilogy. ¶ "Chant's first novel was Red Moon and Black Mountain, a parallel world fiction. According to the author, it was based on elaborate fantasy legends and imaginary games she began enacting and writing as a young child. After learning to read at two and a half, she mostly read folklore and mythology, not knowing of adult fantasy until she was twenty. As for Vandarei: ... it began as a playworld, the sort that a lot of children have, and I was of course the Queen, the character about whom I created the adventures. But I had the disposition of a pedant. I didn't really want to pretend: I wanted to know, to be sure, to get it right. So even in its childish form this playworld tended to become concise, factual. As I grew older, horses became a passion and the playworld developed into "Equitania"—the horse motif strengthening. During this time the history of the country itself assumed an importance and I began to actually write. At fifteen, however, the last links with "Equitania" wavered and the name "Vandarei" appeared. The Queen was abandoned and ceased to be an avatar of myself, becoming a character whom I manipulated, but with whom I no longer especially identified. Red Moon and Black Mountain was published in the U.K. by George Allen & Unwin in 1970, and in the U.S. by Ballantine Books in 1971 as part of its celebrated Ballantine Adult Fantasy series, with a cover illustration by Bob Pepper. The House of Kendreth series comprises Red Moon and two related books, The Grey Mane of Morning (1977) and When Voiha Wakes (1983), as well as a short story, "The Coming of the Starborn" (1983)."—Wikipedia.
