'A Dark Horn Blowing' is the kind of book that is impossible to put down. The characters are described in such detail that I can relate to them, and understand how they feel, even though I have never been in their position. The main reason that I enjoyed this book is because it showed how each character was feeling about the same (or almost the same) situation. I knew exactly what the setting looked like from the author's explainations. I love the descriptions of Ornhest, the horse. I adore all the characters, Owen, Eelie, Eben, and especially Nora. She shows strength and loyalty. Owen is brave and Eelie is sure of himself. Eben wishes only for the best. I wish that there were a dozen books like this one!

A Dark Horn Blowing has several factors in its favor: its publication in the generally decent Magic Carpet series (including better entries such as The Forgotten Beasts of Eld by Patricia McKillip), a very appealing cover, and an intriguing mix of old ballads and poems. They are, unfortunately, insufficient to cover its faults. The prose tends to be overwritten, only very occasionally possessing the beauty it intends. (For lyrical fantasy, I strongly recommend anything by Patricia McKillip and Robin McKinley.) The story line is also detracted from by the constant change of first person narrators. While it can be interesting to see what other characters are thinking, it causes the story to become rather choppy. It is annoying and unrealistic how the five year old prince, Eelie, speaks, thinks and acts like an adult. As to the use of old ballads, they often seem awkward and disjointed, and are inserted sporadically. Things that are never in the least hinted at just suddenly happen (particularly the magic, which is very superficially explained), and the plot sprawls out in several directions, with only the sketchiest of character motives. The characters never seem real or elicit compassion from the reader.
With all that said, it must be fair to concede that A Dark Horn Blowing did create a decently surreal and enigmatic atmosphere. A decent attempt to combine ballads, but a far better one is The Perilous Gard by Elizabeth Marie Pope, which is a retelling of "Tam Lin" with some of "The Twa Sisters" mixed in.

I believe I first read Dark Horn Blowing in the 70's. I adored it -- not so much for the plot or even the characters -- but for the masterful way in which Dahlov Zorach Ipcar created such a moody, compelling, atmospheric world for the reader to explore and become part of.

From the moment Nora succumbs to the draw of the dark horn, which lures her away from hearth, husband, and babe, the reader is likewise compelled to follow...and remains caught-up until the last page.

If you are someone who longs for a really excellent literary escape, this is the book for you. I find myself re-reading it once a year, or more.

Truly enchanting.

Terrific book to read aloud. Told in four voices. Well defined characters. Rich fantasy, full of magic and suspense. My students enjoyed it year after year. Highly recommend .

Actually, this book is more like 4 1/2 stars, but I couldn't put that. Anyway, we need to bring up the average review. I don't know about what you others are saying about the characters. I thought it was great. It was a neat story and it was cool how the author wrote it from different characters'point of view, though she could have written a little less from Eelie's POV. It was a lot better than I thought it would be. When I got near the end I couldn't put it down! I would DEFINATELY read this book!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This story is beautiful. It is pure magic... a wonderful book, from the very first word. It is so easy to imagine ones self living out the lives of the principal characters; a gem.

The plot of this book seemed so impressing and original, so I had expected a good read, put finished the book unfulfilled and wishing I hadn't read it. From the first chapter, you could tell that this was one of those books with "unlyrical" and bad "word" usage on the pages. Sentence forms were dull, there was nothing to use to imagine the green beautiful scenery that was on the cover.

The plot was intriging and original, but the writing is something quite horrid to read. Nothing lyrical or beautiful or magical about the story came up, due towards the unflattering writing style. The writing was very unapealing. Maybe an English course for the writer will spice up her next book!
