What the fifth book 'The Hand of Chaos' lacked, this book brings to the table - content and real progression of the storyline. The best characters in the series (Haplo, Alfred and Hugh) are central in the storyline. There are new characters who are interesting (Marit and Vasu) and Xar's character is developed. Getting a glimpse inside the Labyrinth is also entertaining. There are plenty of surprises to keep the story lively. I would say this book is the second best in the series so far, behind 'Serpent Mage', book four.

Well, Finally after all the other previous books in the Death Gate Cycle, many of the seperate storylines are starting to get wound up like never before. The previous book, "Hand of Chaos" starts to do this but just does not quite have the action that this one did.
You finally get a look at what goes on inside the Labrinth itself. No longer are the dwellers just from one of the character's memories. Now you actually get a big feel for what is soon to happen with the sundered worlds.....
I will not say that this has been the best I have read in the series so far. I still cannot decide whether "The Fire Sea" was better written. Either way, it is a great book if you have read (at least 2 of the other) Death Gate novels.

Although the pace picks up in the latter half of Labyrinth, there is no disguising the languishing pace of the first half and the absence of any noteworthy scenes. Labyrinth is setting the stage for the final conflict, drawing together a fellowship, with the usual traitor within, and actually creates some worthy tension as a result. Distracting from that is Fizban, a plot mechanic so absurd that it immediately dissolves any engagement with the story. Why the James Bond gags? It's high fantasy, not comedy and it's strikingly out of place. The final stage is worth fighting to though and at that point the lengthy build-up does pay dividends and ensures that readers will be yearning for resolution in the final chapter to follow.

Despite some shortcomings (james bond comments) it is a great book that continues the saga to long expected encounters. Another book of the series that i could not put down easily at 04:00 a.m.
The authors are always a guarantee for the a well told fantasy story.
