Summary Lisane, who is a young goddess incarnate and nearly perfect in every way (luckily she has enough charming self-irony to endear her to the reader), moves from an intuitive, matriarchal, wiccan utopia to a rational, patriarchal world, where she is enrolled in an all-boys boarding school, replete with ritual hazing, sodomy, and a rigid hierarchical structure.
Here she meets the terribly noble and handsome Simon, who becomes her mentor, and her class mate Detter, a smart, beautiful, cruel sadomasochist (and a brilliant character).
It is a culture shock for all concerned.

Quality 1st person narrative in a smooth, beautiful, yet remarkable natural sounding voice. Outstanding characterization of all the persons in the novel.

Very, very funny.
Feminist, but not female-chauvinist. Gently and with humor criticizes both the wiccan matriarchy and the magical patriarchy.
