Hace mucho, mucho tiempo, tanto que el hechizo del Principio imperaba todavía, existía un pequeño país llamado Isla. Bien podría haber sido el mundo entero para quienes lo habitaban; vastos océanos los angeles rodeaban igual que el espeso Bosque rodeaba a cada aldea. Más allá del Bosque, en l. a. Desolación, las Ciénagas o las Marcas montañosas del mar, caminaban aún los Antiguos; y dioses, fantasmas y todos los moradores de las colinas huecas no eran extraños al umbrío entramado más allá de las puertas del castillo. Fue en esos tiempos cuando se dio comienzo al Libro de los Soles, aunque los Reyes del Sol lo conocieran sólo vagamente, y un destino que venía de lejos empezó a cumplirse cuando una dama bella como los angeles luz del sol amó al Rey de los angeles Luna en Laureroc.

El Ciervo Blanco se podría calificar como una de las novelas más brillantes que ha visto aparecer los angeles fantasía a raíz del éxito de El Señor de los Anillos, y en efecto, los angeles obra de Nancy Springer tiene una deuda patente con Tolkien. Pero decir eso sería negarle su vida propia, su subyugante poesía y el sorprendente realismo de sus personajes. Y sería también negarle su mayor mérito: Nancy Springer recoge el afán de examinar l. a. naturaleza twin del hombre, los angeles escenificación de su lucha inside para l. a. que l. a. fantasía ha demostrado ser el instrumento adecuado, y lo lleva más allá de l. a. consabida división entre el bien y el mal.
