While the story is nominally about Tuvek son of Vazkor, who gropes toward identity in a journey that parallels his mother Uastis from The Birthgrave, it threads through the lives of three women confined by and defined by their culture and roles. Whether Tuvek shapes their roles as they shape him, as Uastis unconsciously shaped the dominating men in her life, is left as an exercise to the reader.

Tuvek never seems to understand these women until after the fact: he is blind to their struggles and

Tuvek is the son of a tribal leader and somewhat of an outcast due to his mother's "out-tribe" status. Growing up, he began to notice his body could heal itself and that he required very little nourishment. More powerful than the men of the tribe, he is viewed as potentially dangerous competition. Once his mother becomes pregnant again, he learns he is not a true member of the tribe and he sets out to discover his real parents and true heritage, learning more about his strange powers along th

Tanith Lee surprised me. I did the prototypical dumb thing and judged the book by it cover (a barbarian type holding a babe in pasties in one hand and a bloodied sword in the other) and assumed this would be another power fantasy/boy's adventure. But while Robert E. Howard's Conan series (which I haven't read since I was a pimply adolescent) was more of a symptom of a male author's fraught relationship between violence and sexuality (ubber Conan cutting his enemies down and bedding the babes) Va ...more

This is the second book in Tanith Lee's "Birthgrave Trilogy". It is written from the point of view of the heroine of the first book's son, whom she has abondoned after birth and left to be raised by a primitive tribe. Not much new is introduced and the book is much more intimate in scope. The story is set in a believable world well introduced by the first part.

Like the first part it contains sex, rape, atrocities and one or the other thing that likely would be seen as politically incorrect today

This is the middle book of a trilogy that started in Birthgrave, Lee's first novel. That one was a phantasmagorical journey of a woman without any memory of herself through a landscape with that pulp fiction feel of H Rider Haggard tales of lost civilizations, or perhaps even more akin, Jane Gaskell's Atlan Saga. This one, as signaled by it's title, is centered on a Conan-like character called Vazkor, son of the heroine of Birthgrave. He retraces her steps, like her tells the story in his own vo ...more

Vazkor, Son of Vazkor picks up roughly 19-20 years after the conclusion of The Birthdgrave. Not surprisingly it is a story about and from the perspective of the son of Vazkor and Uastis/Karrakaz. It chronicles his time as Tuvek, apparent son of Ettook the chief barbarian of a primitive tribe of warriors, through the time when he discovers, in part, his heritage and begins a quest vengeance. Knowing his father was slain by his mother and feeling robbed of the empire his father had intended to cre ...more

One of the few books where I can say without equivocation that the sophomore in the series is leaps and bounds better than the first. Fabulous fabulous read, great characterization and a mix of lyrical prose and non-stop action. So pleased to have been allowed to review this re-release of Tanith Lee's famous series. Full review in September issue of RT Bookreviews Magazine.

I found this book to be very interesting. It was a novel of self-discovery like the previous book in the series.
