In a world where creatures of legend haunt the lands of men, and to be caught outside after dark means almost certain death, the inhabitants of Isse Tower are amazed when a mute, starving foundling is discovered outside their gates. With no recollection of her name or past, the girl soon realizes that her only hope of happiness lies in distant Caermalor, where a wise woman might be able to restore her memories. To get there, Imrhien must survive a wilderness of endless danger. Lost and pursued by unhuman wights, Imrhien is saved by Thorn, a mysterious, handsome ranger who becomes her protector-and the object of her hopeless love. But unknown to them, a dark force summons the Unseelie, and malignant hordes amass in the night. 'Not since Tolkien's The Fellowship of the Ring have I been so impressed by a beautifully spun fantasy' Andre Norton

I would put this in your Books with Bad Sequels section. I liked the first book, with all of its side jaunts into fairy mythology giving it an old-fashioned storyteller feel. I liked the main character, and how she makes clever use of some lore - like the four-leaf clover. She was smart and interesting, and then, at the end of the book, she gets her looks, her voice, and her memories back, which apparently turns her into a bimbo. Very disappointing. The other two books had nothing to stand on.
