Fantasy novel, first in the series.

'' her main career has been taken up with the Kencyrath sequence: GOD STALK (1982), Dark of the Moon (1985) - Bones (1993, chapbook), a previously unpublished short story from God Stalk, Child of Darkness (1993 chapbook) and Seeker's Mask (1994). The protagonist is one of the more interesting in implicitly feminist revisionist fantasy, a classic accurded wanderer obsessed seeker whose search for her own identity and whose growth towards status as champion of her people, the Kencyrath, against a Dark Lord, are constantly trammelled by sexism. For much of the first book, she is active in two roles, as apprentice (in gender disguise) in the Thieves' Guild and as dancer in an inn. Her subsequent journeys regularly involve her in conflict with the assumption universally made by her own people and others that she belongs in purdah, learning womanly arts. Her people - a subrace of magically gifted aristocrats, another of stolid yeomanry and a largely lost group of wise giant cats - have fled from one alternate world to another'' (Roz Kaveney/Encyclopedia of Fantasy).
