In this sequel to Out of This World, Pellinore Brown returns from the universe of the Galactic Empire to the world of Faerie, which is his only possible way back to Earth. But, when his group comes under attack by the forces of Shadow, Pel quickly realizes that the only way he will get home is over the Shadow's dead body. And so, with his mixed bag of wizards and swordsmen, spacemen and mutants, and homesick earthlings, he is off to Shadow's stronghold. But, what he finds there will surprise him...and some surprises are nasty indeed!
I must start out by saying that I am a big fan of Lawrence Watt-Evans, and am enthralled by his Three Worlds series. I have enjoyed the way that the author constructed his three universes, and then wove them together. Like the first book, this one lulls you into thinking it's a fun little children's story, but before you know it the author turns up the heat and the story becomes quite serious indeed. If you are put off by stories that include death and dismemberment, then you will dislike this book.
But, as for me, I loved this book! I absolutely love the setting, I found the story to be engaging, and the characters enjoyable. I can't wait to get the next book in the series, and see how it all turns out. This is a great book, by a great author, and I recommend them both to you!

Continues the mixed scifi/swords and sorcery saga 12 Feb 2013

I hate traditional fantasy writing with the fake Elizabethan English and all the rest. Lawrence Watt-Evans somehow manages to blend that kind of situation and character seamlessly into a novel that starts with the landing of a disabled spacecraft in some poor American woman's back yard. He continues the tour de force in this novel, which ends with a bemused but highly motivated Earthman being handed the throne and the powers of an all-powerful magician...who is also a dumpy broad with an attitude and a serious case of ennui. Nothing like it anywhere.
