Serious interworld fantasy book. Excellent.,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Soprano Sorceress: Book One: The Spellsong Cycle (Paperback)
L.E. Modesitt Jr has taken a premise with which other authors have already dealt, and given it a unique spin. Having read several 'interworld' fantasy books, I conclude that this book is the only one which deals with a primary character who would probably still rather be back in her own world at the end of the first book. Modesitt has also resisted the temptation to make the book into a 'light' fantasy novel (Foster, Stasheff etc), and has produced something far more thoughtful and believable. I read this book in one sitting, and then started to haunt all the bookshops in Cardiff to wait for the second book in the series. I read that in one sitting too, and am now haunting the bookshops waiting for the third.
