Book Description

With chaos in the wind, a woman with a shadowy past has returned to Duvalpore. A murderer and traitor--an exile disgraced, hated, and feared, and haunted by her own guilty conscience--Maskelle has been summoned back to help put the world right. Once she was the most enigmatic of the Voices, until cursed by her own actions. Now, in the company of Rian--a skilled and dangerously alluring swordsman--she must confront dread enemies old and new, and a cold, stalking malevolence unlike any she has ever encountered.

For if Maskelle cannot unearth the cause of the Wheel of the Infinite's accelerating disintegration--if she cannot free herself from the ghosts of the past and focus on the catastrophe to come--the world will plunge headlong into the terrifying abyss toward which it is recklessly hurtling. And all that is, ever was, and will be will end.

Originally published in hardcover by Avon Eos in 2000.

Product Description


In Duvalpore, where the Wheel of the Infinite must be remade every century or reality will suffer, the Wheel's guardians cannot cope with the damages that appear, and only the outcast Maskelle and Rian the swordsman can find the source of the problem.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mildly Enjoyable Diversion That Lacks Punch 1 Aug. 2000
By A Customer
"Wheel of the Infinite" lacks the tension and pace of Well's earlier "Death of the Necromancer," as well as some of the latter work's tighter plotting. On the plus side, the world created here is in some ways far more authentic, without the obvious borrowings that plagued the previous book. Though the setting is obviously an alternate world that bears a loose resemblance to imaginings of ancient Southeast Asia, Wells has re-contextualized the land and culture to where they exist not simply as a dull and derivative reflection, but have a vibrancy and life all their own.
Unfortunately the same can not entirely be said for either her characters or the magical elements upon which so much of the story depends. As with an earlier reviewer (See US reviews), I agree that many of the characters remain attenuated, both in their own development and their relationship with each other. Questions arise that remain unanswered and many of the secondary characters seem to play walk-on roles that are never fully resolved, especially in the case of Raith and Rastim's participation near the end of the book. In the case of the latter, towards the conclusion Wells seems to be reaching for a fuller expression of Rastim's personality that comes too late and remains too abbreviated to become fully convincing. Revelations are dropped regarding various characters--Raith and the Adversary in particular--that beg expansion yet are never taken further.

3.0 out of 5 stars Light-weight but interesting. 7 May 2011
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The main characters are likeable and believable, they are given the standard back-story with some dark events but nothing clichéd or over done.

The plot is ok with a good pace and a few small twists and it has an interesting twist on magic.
The ending is ok although it has a couple of plot holes but they are only small ones.

It's not a special book but it is a decent one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fantasy book 28 Jan. 2012
By Sanne
I liked this book so much, I've bought it in both paperback and hardcover. A great story set in a convincing Asian inspired world, populated with realistically quirky characters and gods.
Recommended for the fresh writing, amazing worldbuilding and engrossing plot.
