Tanya Huff may have left Nova Scotia at three, and has lived most of her life since in Ontario, but she still considers herself a Maritimer. On the way to the idyllic rural existence she shares with her partner Fiona Patton, six cats, and a chihuahua, she acquired a degree in Radio and Television Arts from Ryerson Polytechnic—an education she was happy to finally use while writing her recent Smoke novels.

A great conclusion to the Child of the Grove" short book, one that I bought way, way back in the early 90's. I always *meant* to buy the sequel, then life happened, and I finally found it (not the combined duo) in the spring.

This continuation of the life of Crystal, who is the so-named last wizard, follows the obvious train of thought: what happened to this sweet, smart, scared child when she defeated her enemy and had to answer the question, "Now what?" She asks herself many, many times what else she can do with her life, and a chance encounter in a miner's inn answers the question.

Suffice to say that the bulk of the tale is in some ways predictable, but it is saved from mundanity by the "what ifs?" and the expanded roles of the goddesses and the humans with whom Crystal travels. Not a fun, engaging frolic, but more a look within to one's role in the world. ( )

Book description

She was Crystal, the one true child of the seven goddesses, created by them and raised to become the nemesis of Kraydak, who for countless centuries tormented the world with his evil sorcery.

Now Kraydak was dead, and Crystal's purpose for existing was gone. And in a world terrified of wizards, a land where only Lord Death was her friend, what future was there for Crystal, the last wizard to ever walk the world.

Then she used her power to save a mortal's life and forged one final fragile bond with the human of her world, a bond which would take Crystal on a quest to destroy - or be destroyed by - a long vanished wizard's stronghold of magic, which had lured many before her to their doom!
