Plot summaryEdit

Golden Witchbreed is a novel in which Christie is on the planet Orthe as an envoy of Earth.[1]


Dave Langford reviewed Golden Witchbreed for White Dwarf #46, and stated that "Golden Witchbreed is not for those who demand slambang action and exploding suns. Its leisurely opening will irritate some: Gentle is almost arrogant in her refusal to do anything quick and obvious by way of narrative hook. Eventually, though, you wish the book were longer. The author writes with enviable calmness and assurance, and has produced a remarkably good novel."[1]
