I love this book! It's been a favorite of mine for years, full of vivid fantasy images and plenty of surprises.

Robert is the son of a fisherman in a small village by the sea. All his life, he's grown up hearing stories of a mysterious City to the south that was fashioned ages ago from a silver tree. Wondrous things are said to happen there. People from the City used to visit the Witch Women in Robert's village for advice, but no one has come there from the City in a long time, and people now doubt whether the City really exists. People have even stopped believing in the Witch Women. However, Robert believes in the old stories, and he wants desperately to see the City for himself. The stories say that someday the Witch King will come to the City and plant a seed so that a new tree will grow. Robert wants to see this story come true, and Granny Fishbone, a strange old woman who tells Robert the old stories, says that the time of the Witch King is close. She gives him a pendant in the shape of a fish and tells him that it came from the City and that it is time for Robert to take it back there. With some misgivings, Robert's family lets him set off on his seemingly crazy quest of finding the City. To Robert's surprise, he is met on the road by the Royal Wizard of the City. As Granny Fishbone said, the time of the Witch King is near, and there is trouble in the city. The Spell that controls the City is failing, and the King has been seeking a remedy for the problem. The king's son, David, believes that he is the Witch King described in the prophesy, but Robert is concerned about David's plans. Robert has a much bigger role to play in the story than he thinks, and as the ancient prophesy says, the City will have to be destroyed in order to be saved.

The Witch King was a fantastic Book. I read it last year, and it was very interesting. I liked it so much, I read it three times through out the year total. I really liked the Character Wolf, and the king was great too. The best part about the book, was...wait a minute...I don't want to give it away! Allright, I liked the Spell performed that Made the Ocean wash up on shore. This book also contains a very deep plot, centered around saving a Town, or Destroying it. A must read for any fan of Spells, Magic, and Science Fiction in General!
