They opened some of the books. Ayna gave the books up and went through the drawers of the desk

They opened some of the books. But the writing was quite strange and the only thing they understood was the pictures. Ayna gave the books up and went through the drawers of the desk. She found sets of false teeth in the first and burst out laughing. Then she opened the second. A wave of cold pulsing horror hit Gair. It was so searingly strong that he had to push his way across the room toward it. Oh! said Ayna.

But Orban listened, feeling rather cunning. He noticed that not once had the Dorig invoked any higher Power than that of the collar itself. Without the Sun, the Moon or the Earth, even such a curse as this could only bring mild bad luck. The creature must take him for a fool.

By the Three Powers? said the larger Dorig quickly. All of us want to stop the Moor being flooded. Your lot want it flooded. Can you think of any way we can come to an agreement? Hafny shrugged

By the Three Powers? said the larger Dorig quickly. And the Sun and the Moon, and the strange gods of the Giants? Yes, they said, and Gerald asked, Well? But if we agree, persisted the smaller Dorig, that means we’re in your power without any defense. Would you agree not to use your magic? We haven’t got any magic, said Gair, to which Gerald added, And we certainly haven’t. Can you think of any way we can come to an agreement? Hafny shrugged. No, he said frankly, with his mouth full. It’s you Giants who are doing the flooding, Halla said. I told you it had nothing to do with us.

In Power Of Three, Diana Wynne Jones's seventh novel, she takes her skill with limited third person perspective and the naive narrator to a new level. Ayna, Gair and Ceri are siblings who live on the Moor, coexisting unpeacefully with the Dorig, water-dwelling fish-like humanoids, and the Giants, large and loud and strong. Diana Wynne Jones is one of my absolute favourite authors, and there are several of her books that I reread almost every year, but for some reason (not sure why) I’ve skipped over Power of Three the last few years, so this is the first time I’ve read it in ages-and it has been an absolute joy to rediscover it!

I have long since been a fan of Diana Wynne Jones. I have yet to find a book of her's that I didn't like, however, sometimes you can see re-occuring characteristics in some of her characters.

Ships from and sold by RAREWAVES-IMPORTS. I have long since been a fan of Diana Wynne Jones. With "Power of Three" I felt a very different voice. It was a little darker than some of her other books of hers I've read, but equally addicting. It's a must read that will keep you guessing.

Read in our apps: iOS. · Android. Ayna could predict the future. Cari could find what was lost. Gair thought he was ordinary. The three children of Gest, the chief of Garholt, know the perils of the Moor on which they live. The Dorig, their people's enemies, are cold-blooded, fierce underwater creatures who terrify anyone unlucky enough to happen upon them. The Giants are dangerous and violent. But it's not until their home is invaded that Gair learns of a dying curse that endangers all three peoples of the Moor.

Power of Three - Diana Wynne Jones. The children in this story were actual kids - not grow ups in kids bodies. I don't know if this is an early story by the author, but it wouldn't surprise me if it was.

Maybe not my favorite of her books but it is a well told story and there were some nice surprises in the telling. Worth the read.

Diana Wynne Jones is a great writer of kids' fantasy novels, and this was no exception. I will definitely recommend it for a school library. It is also the kind of novel that will keep kids reading. Buy it for your children or grandchildren - let's get them reading.

Solid storytelling, chilling use of folklore, empathic sense of family dynamics. A joyful reading experience at any age. Oh, and great writing style!
Zyniam
Definitely one of her best stories. While it shows her quirky, brilliant mind in every chapter, it's like nothing else she's written. The story line is catchy and the characters are very alive. A great story to discover.

I read it almost in one go, and I will be reading it again.

This book is so awesome in so many ways, I have no Clue how to explain. Give it a try, you won't regret it!

I loved this story. But then, I love anything by Diana Wynne Jones. She really was (and is) the Grande Dame of YA Fantasy.
As the story progressed it got better, but I felt as though the writing style for this book lacked something. Perhaps a younger reader may have enjoyed it more, though I found myself getting lost several times trying to keep straight who was who. Names of characters hard to pronounce as well. I found the it hard to lose myself in the world she was trying to create because their were too many unanswered questions and bad explanations for things.
