She likes it! High praise.

I am falling behind.... At least with Norton reading.
I never finished BREED TO COME, and have switched to FOUR FROM THE WITCH WORLD right now.
Read several other books when I stalled on BREED.

I'll get to this soon.

BROTHERS TO SHADOWS by Andre Norton copyright 1993

I like this book. I even like the cover by Daniel Horne

My story review is https://forums.sf-fandom.com/thread-35555-post-369529.html#pid369529

My technical review is that we have another coming of age story. Jofre is young (16? 17?), but has reached full education as a pseudo-ninja. I like the clothing description, and accept the (slightly) sketchy descriptions of alien species.
Some I see as Kimodo dragons (Zacathan), others as various species of bugs, which most humans find slightly "icky" and hard to fathom. There is adventure, and a bit of "boy meets girl" in the story. Of course Andre Norton doesn't DO love stories. But she does paint pretty good mind-pictures, and adventure.

I've not read it in a while, but remember it being quite fun.
