It was quite exciting to come across well-loved characters & the Authors very descriptive and quite frequently poetic style of writing, but what was most interesting was the fact that this was an inhabited Dica, something I had wondered about all through the first novel. Some things were as I expected but a lot was not, the sense of place for everything was wonderfully described, the people themselves & the communities that they lived full bodied with unexpected surprises along the way.
I thought that I would know which way the story was heading, but no just as you thought that you had a grasp on the situation the story took a path that you didn't expect, exciting and clever writing as I was kept guessing at every turn. New aspects of known characters were shown as well as new characters, all interesting in their own right & some like `Steermaster Sconner' could quite happily have stories of their own.
The writing like the first novel is complex, with quite a number of issues that do get you thinking, especially as they have plenty of weight in today's world.
Again I've kept this short as it should be experienced; there are a lot of surprises that I don't want spoil.Read more ›
Nephryl who is the central character from the first two books is somebody I bonded with and cared deeply for and this I can once more applaud the author for. For any reader interested in the best fiction can offer; or any student interested in the art of writing, this author and his books are must reads.
One of the finest fantasy novels I have read and most ardently recommended to anyone who appreciates great literature.
Most of the same characters from Leiyatel's Embrace reappear (with one major exception) but are shown in a slightly different light due to the changed circumstances of their world (following events at the end of Leiyatel's Embrace). There are also some interesting new characters, plus one or two minor characters take on a larger role here. In this book, we get to see more of the world in which the books are set, as our characters venture outside the castle realm of Dica on an expedition to rediscover the city's lost northern colony.
There are some lovely touches in this book, with moments of macabre humour, a look at a re-emerging engineering industry, some thoughtful consideration of the implications of a very long life, and the ultimate triumph of entropy. These highlights are folded lovingly into a strongly written narrative, with a highly satisfactory ending.
One extra point worthy of note is that the author has also added a number of illustrations at a selection of chapter headings, and these, like the maps at the beginning, are quite delightful.
