This question already has an answer here:
I'm looking for a fantasy novel, pre-2000. It's young adult fantasy.
- Magical abilities involved talents similar to psychic abilities.
- One character could hide the group, preventing others from seeing them.
- One character could start fires.
- They were on some sort of quest and had to go into the enemy territory.
Argh! It's so frustrating. I can't remember much about the book, but would recognise it instantly.
It's not Xanth and not Julian May. It's sort of a Stephen King's Firestarter meets Andre Norton type novel.
