Power of Three
Power of Three | Diana Wynne Jones
9 posts | 8 read | 1 reading | 5 to read
Ayna could predict the future. Cari could find what was lost. Gair thought he was ordinary. The three children of Gest, the chief of Garholt, know the perils of the Moor on which they live. The Dorig, their people's enemies, are cold-blooded, fierce underwater creatures who terrify anyone unlucky enough to happen upon them. The Giants are dangerous and violent. But it's not until their home is invaded that Gair learns of a dying curse that endangers all three peoples of the Moor. A curse that ordinary Gair, with the help of his extraordinary brother and sister, may be able to break, but only at the most dreadful risk to all three, and to the Moor itself.

I love it when Diana Wynne Jones makes you think you're reading a certain type of story until BAM! Some choice tidbit clues you in to another reality altogether and you've gotta twist everything you know at least a quarter turn to the left so it all fits.

She does it very well in POWER OF THREE. As an added bonus, this children's fantasy published in 1976 is deeply concerned with issues like water rights. Hello, topical fiction.

This year I've done a pretty good job of reading books soon after I've bought them, with the exception of my April Book Market haul. I need a kick in the pants, so I hereby swear I won't even go to the next Book Market, which starts on the 27th, unless I've read at least four of these six neglected books.

BkClubCare KICK in the pants myfriend! 1y

#novemberbythenumbers day 3. This was a good kid's book that I didn't discover as a kid. And Wynne Jones' most famous ones are all still tbr for me. Not too sure how that happened.

I was pleasantly surprised by this title because while different from her Chrestomanci & Howl books it is still written in her inimitable style. This standalone novel delves into faery tribes and faery vs. man issues with an array of interesting characters. An enjoyable tale. DWJ was the best!

Foragingfantasy I want all of her books!!! 😍 4y
elkeo_TheBookDragon @Foragingfantasy Life is better when you do have all of her books! It's a slippery slope when you see all the different covers one book can have though... 4y
Foragingfantasy I hear that! I just need, need, need the house of many ways. Soon. 4y
