classic sci-fi.
conclusion to the araminta series.
well worth the money and the couple of hours to read.
also try the demon prince series set in the same universe.

With the third novel in the Cadwal Chronicles, politics has become polarised and the opposing forces, until now working covertly, spring into the foreground. The plot starts to move at an alarming speed towards a conclusion that seems as inevitable as it does unfortunate.

Jack Vance brings this masterpiece of classically-styled literate Science Fiction to a close with poise and delicious language.

Finished the trilogy off quite nicely, tying up the loose ends.
Not one of Jack Vances best but in the mainstream of the genre.
The trilogy could have been finished off quicker - sometimes the floweriness of the descriptions seems a little too elaborate and long winded and thus mars the pleasure in following the convoluted plot-line but then that is Jack Vances inimitable style.
All in all still well worth reading.

Following on from "Araminta Station" and "Ecce And Old Earth" this volume concludes the Cadwal trilogy, and hours of great sci-fi story-telling.

Although I liked it, the story was nowhere near as exciting as the previous two books in the series, and the characters had become rather one dimensional.
