Teaser Tuesday #25 - Year of the Griffin by Diana Wynn Jones

This week I'm on a Diana Wynn Jones readathon!
I borrowed Howl's Moving Castle from my library after watching the anime movie it was based on by Studio Ghibli. The book was so charming, different from the movie and still a wonderful read. Since then, I've read two other books by her - House of Many Ways and Fire & Hemlock which were really fantastic. Both were fantasy, but didn't recourse to the usual mix of mythology we see out there. From Year of the Griffin, Chapter 1:
“Hush!” said the griffin, probably whispering, too. It sounded like a very small scream.
“It may mean something magical.”
