5.0 out of 5 stars Rich vocabulary, intriguing plot, enjoyable ride. 10 Sep 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I found this a great story. I primarily read fantasy literature, but found this to be more a 16th century mystery with the allure of fantasy to come. We, along with the main character, Tristam Flattery, are following a destiny quite unclear, unfolding as it goes. I found the language quite rich, both by using vocabulary of the 16th century throughout and later by adding nautical terms which were unfamiliar to me and which I couldn't wait to look up and explore. I enjoyed the stretch.
Always one to enjoy the journey of reading rather than reaching the conclusion, I did not find this an unnecessarily lengthy book at all. I felt that I was 'in' the adventure right along with the other characters. My only disappointment was that the book concluded midstream, without any resolution. I'm ordering the next book as I write this so to learn more. I'm encouraged by the reviewers that find the next book even better. "The pleasures of the day to you all." ... Bill

4.0 out of 5 stars This Is Fantasy...? 27 Jun 2000
By Peter A. Greene - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This work has more in common with the adventures of Horatio Hornblower than Bilbo Baggins. Particularly in this first half of the duology, there's little hint of any fantastic elements whatsoever. The non-fantasy feel is further accented by Russell's creation of a world that is so clear, specific, and well-grounded.
There's politics, travel adventure, and a bit of love(lust?) interest-- this could almost be a costume drama set in 18th century France! If you can relax and let this work take you where it will without waiting for a big furry mgic something to pop up, the work has some rewards-- strong characters, grown-up plot, intrigue, and sailing adventures. Just don't expect full-scale fantastic special effects.

4.0 out of 5 stars VERY VERY GOOD!!! 25 Mar 2003
By "seasonsosummer" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
this book was definitely a 4 star book. I have heard tell the sequel was better but as I haven't read it I cannot say. The ONE thing that stopped this book from being a five star book was that it was a wee bit boring towards the middle. The romance with the Duchess went on FOREVER, I can't tell you how relieved I was when he finally came to his senses.wewh.
A summary of this book would be: Tristam, a naive but educated man is called from his peaceful life so he could be of service to the King, whose very life depends opona plant's amazing healing powers. But alas, this plant was slowly dying out. Tristam's friend and mentor Professor Dandish died. With his death Tristam discovers that the Duchess, a completly irrisistable woman who is the favorite of the king, had hired Dandish to look into Tristams problem years ago. Dandish left Tristam a message, torn in half, that said Dandish had discovered an answer, and knowing something Tristam couldn't guess at, had destroyed his plants. The Duchess and Tristam embark on a 2 year voyage to get Kingfoil from it's original land. On the way Tristam notices that there is a white hawk following him. The main part of the crew of the ship think him a mage and it doesn't help things that his uncle was himself rumored to be one. Tristam discovers that he does indeed have a spark of something, although of what he is not sure:end of summary.
The political intrigues of this book are astonishing as is the complex plot of this book. There are characters we know nothing about, only that they serve a purpose, but it is that foreplanning that makes me envious of this writers talent.This book is great and I highly recommend it to anyone who likes science-fiction and fantasy.
Note: this book is a cliffhanger so buy the second book along with the first.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality story as usual 21 Jan 2000
By Christopher Carey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Having read Sean Russell's Wa Duology, this is the third book of his that I've read, and I'm very pleased to find that I haven't been let down yet. Like in his Wa books, Russell has created a complex world, filled with hidden plots and fascinating characters, this time set in a world based on Darwinian England. I know I shall go on to read the rest of his books, and am very relieved to find an author of quality writing in this genre. Russell deserves more attention.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sean Russell, Mage-Genius Of The Fantacy Relm. 7 Dec 1999
By Rob Blackwell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Sean Russell's World With Out End is one of the most thought provoking works of fantacy ever put to paper. His ability to inter twine the spritual and scientific struggle of our own world into a tangable work of fantacy adventure is masterful. As the reader envelpes himself in the political schemeing of the Dutchess Of Morlan, Sir Rodrick Palle, and the other courtiers he can truly begin to antcipate the growing squall that has become Tristam Flattery's life. The spellbinding plot unfolds before us as if we, the readers, live a life of toil about the Entide Sea. Sean Russell's narative is truly poetic drawing the reader into the story making her feel as if she were Tristam's own family. The political strugle between the Entonne, and Farland nations is the hammer that drives the nails of the plot. National, political, and personal agendas push Tristam on a quest to unravel an age old mistery, while in the same instance giving him the life destined to him by the Gods. Never before has there been a supior work of fantacy ever writen!
