The Forgotten Beasts of Eld (original 1974; edition 1976)
The Forgotten Beasts of Eld by Patricia A. McKillip (Author) (1974)
Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0152055363, Paperback)Almost destroyed because of a man's fear and greed, Sybel, a beautiful young sorceress, embarks on a quest for revenge that proves equally destructive. Winner of the World Fantasy award, this exquisitely written story has something for almost every reader: adventure, romance and a resonant mythology that reveals powerful truths about human nature. Locus praised it for its "marvelous heroine... and chilling sorcery" and The New York Times called it "rich and regal."

Raised on Eld mountain with only her father's magical menagerie for company, a young wizard is drawn irrevocably into the human world with all its sorrows and delights when a baby comes into her care.
