As Princess Lissar reaches womanhood, it is clear to all the kingdom that in her breathtaking beauty she is the mirror image of her mother, the queen--but this seeming blessing forces her to flee from her father's wrath. With her loyal dog, Lissar discovers a world of magic where she finds the key to her own survival.

Reviews

"A fierce and beautiful story of rage and compassion, betrayal and loyalty, damage and love." -Alice Hoffman "An enormously powerful novel...dreamlike, urgent, inexplicable...Robin McKinley has created a world where nightmare and hope exist side by side." -Patricia A. McKillip "Superlative." -Chicago Sun-Times "A wonderful story, wonderfully told." -The San Diego Union-Tribune "I did so much enjoy Robin McKinley's Deerskin...I respect her writing and reread her constantly, finding new perceptions each time." -Anne McCaffrey "Deerskin is a subversive fairytale with an element of myth, but most of all it is a psychological novel of great depth and power, using fantasy in the service of truth." -Locus "Well-chosen details, characterization is superlative." -Booklist "McKinley's writing is amazing, dreamlike, gut-wrenching, and heartwarming...A very uplifting story of triumph and love." -Under the Covers
