This is not one of Norton's better books. A suitable choice for the young reader, perhaps. ( )

An unexpected drop through an ancient gate in the Scottish Highlands lands Kelsie in Escore with no way home. Now, accompanied by a grim witch and a helmed warrior with a strange glowing weapon, Kelsie is geas-lead to find a thing of power the witch seeks. She hope she may find a way home, but with dark forces at work, their lives and the very fate of this strange world hang in the balance.

Perhaps not Norton's strongest work, but enjoyable nonetheless. ( )

Book description
Come, step through an ancient arch in the Scottish highlands - and into a world beyond all earthly possibilities...

Where fearsome creatures abound and witches rule supreme.
Where a sparkling jewel carries a strange and awesome power.
Where the terrifying forces of the Dark ravage the countryside.

And where a young Earth woman named Kelsie McBlair holds the key to Witch World's future. Trapped in a bizarre web of science and sorcery, she alone can pierce the savage heart of evil... by confronting the lord of the Dark himself!
