Now for the nitty-gritty. This e-book rerelease is actually more of a Special Edition of the paperback novel. Attanasio's been reworking his Perilous Order series, and I must say, this book has improved tremendously from what I remember. I'd give details, but you know, SPOILERS. Anyway, I definitely recommend it. Fun fact: The Perilous Order of Camelot is four books long. I read Serpent and Grail first, even though it's the last book. I found I could follow along just fine. (maybe from my familiarity with the Arthurian saga?) That said, some folks might do well to hunt down the first three books first.
Attanasio blends magic and myth with astrophysics and quantum mechanics. He's able to create a world where the gods and goddesses of man's disparate faiths can coexist in a hyper-realistic world of electromagnetic fields that sometimes take the form of terrifying monsters. It's fun stuff.
interesting if odd takes of it's own. I personally felt it was very choppy. Reviewing
the Nordic Gods before reading might be helpful. Doesn't have anything on Marion Zimmer Bradley.
