The Blue Star, by Fletcher Pratt, paperback fantasy novel
“Lalette Asterhax could not escape her destiny. She was a hereditary witch in a world where witchcraft was banned by ecclesiastical and temporal powers. And any man who possessed her would then gain possession of her precious Blue Star…and all the powers it could bestow.
Rodvard Bergelin was a reluctant revolutionary … a rogue who had a date with destiny. Although he lusted after a rich baron’s daughter, Rodvard was ordered to seduce the saucy witch-maiden. Then all the magical powers of that strange blue jewel would be his … for as long as he remained faithful to Lalette!
“A magnificent job of writing … a gem-perfect example of a branch of pure fantasy so rare nowadays.” –Damon Knight”
