I read this book for the first time ten years ago, I was surprised how little I remembered. This time around, having read kings blood four and necromancer nine, the book made a lot more sense too me. Sheri Tepper' s writing style is well paced and kept me interested. There were a couple of plot points I had issues with, particularly the mirrorman keeping the king features. On the whole I was glad I re-read it and will, in all probability read the Jinian series as a result.
