5.0 out of 5 stars Unmissable for Tanith Lee fans!, 30 Oct 2009

A heart-breakingly beautiful work by possibly the greatest fantasy writer of our age, NIGHT'S MASTER is the first book in Tanith Lee's 5-volume "Flat Earth" series.

For anyone who hasn't read this saga before, it's imperative that you start with this volume. All the later volumes refer back to it and it's well-nigh impossible to make sense of the mammoth epic DELIRIUM'S MISTRESS (volume 4) unless you know the earlier books.

NIGHT'S MASTER is not a novel but a trilogy of interlinking novellas. The central character that unites them is Azhrarn, Prince of Demons - dark, seductive, bisexual, all-powerful and wholly irresistible. In a perverse twist, this Lord of Darkness actually sacrifices himself to save humanity from destroying itself, becoming a sort of 'dark Christ' figure.

The novella format works brilliantly because (and I say this as a fan) Tanith Lee is an infinitely better writer of short fiction than of full-length novels.

Unmissable for anybody who loves her work!

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic, 2 Nov 2010

This review is from: Night's Master (Tales from the Flat Earth) (Paperback)
This was my first Tanith Lee book, and one of my first fantasy novels.. TL opened a whole new world for me, in terms of introducing eroticism to fantasy, and just seeing things from a different perspective to what I had come across until then.. These stories make for an interesting read about Azhrarn, Prince of Darkness.. Loved it!

4.0 out of 5 stars First Foray into the wonders of Tanith Lee, 9 Dec 2013

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the first book I have ever read by Tanith Lee, I had been hankering for new Fantasy books from different authors when I stumbled across some information about Tanith Lee online. The book is dark in an arabesque fashion, its a decorative fiction with dark themes. Character development is decidedly shallow but understandable for a book written from, the perspective of powerful and beautiful demons who view humans as play things for their infernal mischief. Demon-kind are cold, immortal and merciless but are taught humility when faced with the extinction of human kind on flat earth(to find out why read the book). The separate stories are all woven together to culminate in a climax focusing on Azrahrn the Lord of Darkness who is a chief demon in this tale. I love that the book has metro-sexual overtones, offering something fresh and modern over typical high fantasy novels. All in all a fantastic introduction to Tanith Lee and the Tales of Flat earth series; I need to order and review the next book in the series now (Deaths Master) watch this space.
