J. Cherryh YVGENIE THE GHOST BOY Eveshka had a dreadful impression of danger. She ran across the yard and headlong down the slope to the ferry dock, toward the river. Past the gray, weathered boat she ran, then down the overgrown shoreline, fending her way through reeds and a thin screen of young birches. Her daughter Ilyana was standing there, wrapped in mist. Two lovers, one mortal, one-a ghost. Ilyana! Eveshka threw up an arm.

Cherryh brings her Rusalka series a step further with this fantasy novel, evoking mythological roots that nurture us all. The premise of wizardry being a matter of mere wishes in the pre-Christian Russia is the precursor to the practice of Christian prayer. If a wizard is forbidden to wish for anything for himself, that is the corrolary to the Lord's Prayer.
Currently resident in Spokane, Washington, . Cherryh has won four Hugos and is one of the best-selling and most critically acclaimed authors in the science fiction and fantasy field. She is the author of more than forty novels. Her hobbies include travel, photography, reef culture, Mariners baseball, and, a late passion, figure skating: she intends to compete in the adult USFSA track.

Hardcover Paperback Kindle. C. Cherryh celebrated it because the books were an elaboration of her untold stories and they were finally being jotted down in print. The books were published in 1976. A year later, C. Cherry was recognized for her work and this led to an unforeseen recognition by the John Campbell Award for Best New Writer. I feel that C. I would recommend this book to both beginners and advanced readers of both non-fiction and fiction novels. This story is breath-taking and even as you read it, you are tempted to live the fantasy in your own reality.
But she had no desire to go up to that awful doorway. She walked the whole circuit of the hill, hoping another path through the thorns might lead out.
But she had no desire to go up to that awful doorway ll and the palace of bone, and all the while the ghostly wolves lay about the door, the bear lazed near them, and Owl, faithless Owl, who should have guided her out of this, kept a watch from a white and dreadful ledge above the porch. She did not have to see them. She could wish not to see any ghosts at all and they would be gone until her resolve weakened.
