Fires of the Kindred cover

    Robin Skelton's portrayal of marvels and mysteries is so convincingly commonsensical: the author is a practising witch and knows whereof he speaks ... What is most marvellous here is the stunning credibility -- in emotion, action, and interaction -- of the women he presents as the pragmatic priesthood/policy makers of Mother Earth's matriarchy.
    Judith Merril

True magic and harmony with nature undergo displacement by violent ambition and abstract thought, driving a wedge between the unity of Woman and Man. Told simply and sensitively through the lives of two apprentice shamans, the narrative draws us into a world where the ruling process is Change, where Humanity itself is losing its innocence and, for better or worse, is coming of age.
