I am not a literary critic All my reviews are entirely subjective My focus is on readability and story telling.
This is a good yarn However, as opposed to the previous two novels set in the exotic sci fantasy world of Tekumel, this book feels less able to stand alone as a story in it s own right.
A familiar character, as idiosyncratic as the author, re appears, with a host of new characters In a by now familiar trope, these characters find themselves struggling to survive amidst a confluence of events beyond their control.
This story containsmagic than the previous novels, which, although they are set in a magic laden world, are magic light Some of the deeper mysteries of this exotic setting are teased out And a littleof the ancient technologies are revealed.
For Tekumel afficionados this is a must read For those who have survived the previous two novels it is a worthwhile investment of time, although its rarity makes it a questionable investment of money I read a borrowed copy A couple of pages were missing, and one page contained a significant physical hole Fortunately, the missing information seems to have been non critical.
I would recommend this novel to anyone who has read The Man of Gold, and Flamesong, and is still curious about what the world of Tekumel has to offer.


I actually have a pre publication copy of this one, spiral bound It was expensive enough when I bought it, that I didn t feel I could justify buying a second copy when the nicer edition came out Now I wish I had, just so I had the final three novels in the same editions In any case, I am re reading this series of five novels I guess that so far, this one might be my favorite I do not like the way the one character from a prior novel is presented here He is not likeable, in spite of how much I liked him in his prior appearance However, I do like the new protagonist Also, this book is rather dramatically exciting, and it opens up the setting significantly I also like the ending very much.
Viewed as an advancing timeline to a game world, I m not really happy with the way the author took things My own campaign s timeline will not follow that of the author s campaign.
It s alright The story meanders quite a bit, and the characters never really grew on me To be honest, though, I think the only reason why one would be interested in this book is as a fan of the Tekumel world, and if you re a fan, it s worth reading just forauthoritative world and lore from Barker himself.
