The Riddlemaster of Hed is the first book in the Riddlemaster series. The story picks up long after the time of wizards and now all knowledge has been left behind, hidden in riddles. Morgon is the prince of the farmers of Hed and has proven himself to be a master of riddles. He staked his life to win a crown from Lord of Aum, but now finds himself with ancient, evil forces threatening him. He is forced to flee the kingdoms in search of the High One.

McKillip is also the author of The Forggoten Beasts of Eld. The story follows Young Sybel, an heiress to powerful wizards, who is very powerful in her own right. She lives in a stone mansion with her magical beasts: Riddle-master Cyrin the boar, Gyld the dragon, Gules the Lyon, Ter the fiercely vengeful falcon, and Moriah a feline Lady of the Night. Despite her many exotic creatures, Sybel is living a life of solitude until desperate soldier arrives with a mysterious child.
