Hardcover first edition, first printing and first US edition. (First published in the UK by Century Hutchinson.) Not a book club, remainder or ex-library copy.

"[U]nconventional, twee-defying characterization, vital to the plot and search, introduces highly adult, realistic, even sensual relationships into the fray to good effect. A clever sweep of the broom through an overexploited area of fantasy writing." Barron (ed), Fantasy Literature, 4A-52. Wonderfully tolkienesque full color, wrap-around jacket illustration by Linda Garland.
