Paints a picture of future civilisatons that are both fantastical and believable and actually includes a decent story line. Villains are larger than life but somehow make sense in a twisted sort of way. Jack Vance is one of the few SF authors that can write 30 books and I'm not bored after 7 of them. Great stuff!

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.

For some reason this third one of the Cadwal trilogy was hard to get hold of in print, I had read it on kindle but wanted a tree book copy to go with the first two on my shelf.

A good ending to an enthralling read, I'll have to wait a few months now before reading the series again.

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