Book Description

Four worlds that cannot be visited.
Four worlds that must be visited.

Aliens are spying on Earth from one of the four worlds that make up the Warden Diamond. But it is impossible to send agents to any of the four worlds because of unique microscopic symbionts that make it impossible for visitors to leave the Diamond.

Seeking a unique solution, each of the four worlds making up the Diamond is sent a person whose mind has been stripped of everything and who is now controlled by an agent of the Confederacy

Lilith is the first planet to be visited. Here, Cal Tremon, stripped of his own personality, must overcome incredible odds and survive not only the incredible perils of the foreign planet but his own controllers as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Too expensive! 4 May 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Great story, well written, engaging and highly recommended. I've not disliked anything by this author (four lords of the diamond and dancing gods series), but c'mon, how much? I've already got two of this series in paperback, I'd like the whole lot on kindle, but I'm not paying that much for a digital download, where the majority of the cost is profit. Charge less than a fiver, and I'll think about it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lilith Review 25 Dec. 2011
By Sirrob01 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've been trying to track this book/series down for a while as I tend to enjoy Chalkers books.This book has a lot of the underlying theme's that I've seen in his other books, strange biologies, mind transference etc. Although this one has some uniques take on some of those theme's. If you like reading Fantasy books and Sci-fi this book setting and story line sit somewhere between the two. The book is also fairly well contained if you wanted to you could read this book as a standalone novel and ignore the following 3 books. Although for myself I want to read about the other three worlds and find out what the elusive "Aliens" are up to.
I enjoyed this book a lot and would recommend it to anyone who is a Sci-fi fan or has enjoyed Chalkers other books such as the Rings of the Master series or The dancing Gods Series. I hope to see more of Chalkers books available on kindle as most are OOP and hard to find new or 2nd hand.

5.0 out of 5 stars Four books with interesting viewpoints 14 Mar. 2013
By L J Melen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There are four (4) books in the "Lords of the Diamond" series, all of which are not only entertaining, but also have a buried commentary on possible future civilization, penal systems, and the human condition in general. This is the first of the series. As such, while it can be read as a stand-alone, it is much more enjoyable when all four books are read as a series and in order.

Though the series is now 20 years old, and not written in the style of modern science fiction, it is still enjoyable for all age brackets. For those of us who are 'older' fans, the style and content reflect the science fiction we grew up reading. As such, fans of 'cyber punk' and modern themes may not enjoy it, but it is still worthy of reading and as a reflection of how the genre has changed since the original days of "Astounding" and such magazines.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still good after all these years 28 Jun. 2013
By Hippy_Lettuce - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this series many years ago, and loved it. A star system of 4 planets, each world unique upon itself. One problem, once you land on any of the planets, you can never leave the star system. So, turn it into a unique penal colony.
1 man's mind inserted into 4 unique bodies, all to search for info on an alien incident that seems to start from the Warden System.

Each book in this series is set upon each of the four worlds in this system. Good concept on how to use mind transfer technology to another level. Great plots, intrigue, plot twists, and trying to determine what is good and what is bad?

Classic novel, that stands the test of time.

4.0 out of 5 stars I really liked this series 1 Dec. 2012
By Mike Andres - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this series of books years ago and I really liked the author's distopian future universe. The books are good page-turners and have lots of fun science fiction and fantasy elements. The first book is the best in my opinion due to the introduction of all the concepts. Parts of the series can get a little repetitive, but are still entertaining. I recommend especially the first book and I think if you like it you'll like the others.

By J. Porter - Published on Amazon.com

All four of these books in this series are very good. once you start reading its hard to put down. This series would make a great Cinema Quadrilogy if someone like peter Jackson directed it.
