5.0 out of 5 stars "Disclose by the Deep Powers" 30 Jun 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Jinian, Peter, Queynt and Chance are now on their way north in a cart drawn by Yittleby and Yattleby, two giant krylobos, native birds of Lom. Their quest has turned into a hunt for the source of a yellow crystal even the slightest taste of which will cause its possessor to fall victim to a deep sense of peace and then die. Jinian has buried whole families who have chosen to die by the road, and she knows something is horribly wrong with the world.
They follow the trail to Bloome, where a continuous series of festivals are held to use up the products of the cloth mill before more is produced. The Dream Merchant's Man seeks them out hoping to trap them into taking his job and finds himself trapped into letting Queynt take over for them (you have to have been there). For coming to Bloome are the Duke of Betand, Huldra the witch, Dedrina Deadeye, and Valearn the Ogress, all folk who have plotted evil against Peter and Jinian. They are on the way to Fangel to meet with the Dream Merchant and make their deal with Storm Grower and Dream Miner. Jinian's sense of evil tells her that this is the route to the source of the deadly crystals, and she intends to travel along.
Once again, we find ourselves on a tricksy tale that will march from Bloome to Fangel and thence under the Great Maze to the Backless Throne and the evil upon it. Distracted by the ripples of her relationship with Peter, Jinian's survival skills are put to the test. Soon she finds out that the secret of the crystals are of deep importance to the entire world, not just the Lands of the True Game.
Tepper continues to deliver a story that is always, somehow, more than we could expect. Jinian is conflicted between her feelings for Peter and her need to complete the Wyse-ard term of celibacy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sequel to Jinian Footseer 6 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Should be read in sequence.

Mercifully fewer scan errors, though far from perfect.

I love this whole series: True Game, Jinian, and Mavin, and glad to have them as e-books despite the production problems since my paperback copies are falling apart.

2.0 out of 5 stars Still learning her trade 7 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
The poorest Tepper I have read and that includes all her fantasy work in the last decade. She is capable of such flowing English with rich imagination, philosophy and finely worked coherent plots that this disappoints.

A very good read, completing an engrossing story of The True Game. I was transported to another world by this story and have read the entire 9 books several times

The book was clearly second hand, but that's what I paid so little for. I was impressed with their fast and efficient delivery. I have been trying to get this book for ages and was delighted that it was in good condition. The cover was marred where a price tag had been scrappily removed (lose a star), BUT I knew this was a 2nd hand book before I bought it.

(I will of course change this review in the unlikely event I find that there are pages missing)
