An Enjoyable easy read. I made the mistake of reading this before "The Sea Is Full Of Stars", but the story wasn't that difficult to pick up. My only complain would be that the ending was a little too pat and unsatisfying.

All of the well of souls books explores the strong social problems of our own world in a tale of science fiction. Social injustice, prejudice, close-mindedness - all are some of the common problems that plauge the inhabitants of the strange worlds and cause their problems and lead to the wars between species. Its just like our own world, except instead of different species we have different races or nationalites. Chaulker, like Clarke, explores terrestrial human issues thru extrterrestrial world ...more

I did not like this book at all. It was a slog getting through it. I wish Chalker had just left the Well World alone and not diminished it with this book.

This is the second in a series of two books and concludes another Jack Chalker story. I am in two minds with this one the basic story outline is similar to two of the previous stories but without Nathan Brazil or Marva Chang. The build up was good but the ending was quieter than I expected. Still it was an interesting read.

After 8 excellent volumes, and one pretty good one, this one just wasn't the conclusion I was looking for. I enjoyed it, but the last two were weak relative to the whole.

A fitting end to the Well World stories. Slow at first and then accelerating to a frantic end with multiple loose ends being tied up in rather short order.
