Review: The Zero Stone (The Zero Stone #1) by Andre Norton

The Zero Stone is a magical book for me in some ways. I first ran into The Zero Stone (and Andre Norton) in elementary school. I was a voracious reader even then and apparently, my elementary school had a fabulous catalog. At the time I read The Zero Stone, I… Read more »
