and then Night's Daughter did this and then she did that and they were strange and surreal and beautiful adventures but Night's Daughter is just less mythic and interesting than Night's Master or Death's Master or even Delusion's Master so I was a bit bored but I do remember loving that sequence at the bottom of the sea. nice place to visit!

Before I speak on this let me recap by reposting my review of the first book
“Wildly inventive mythological storytelling at it's best. Love the use of language it's rich texture and complex plots I knew nothing about Tanith Lee or her work, I was just pursing my friends reading lists and I just thought the title looked interesting, knowing nothing more than that I ordered the book and was surprised to find it was over 700 pages. (So incurious was my

As marvelous as the first three books of the Flat Earth series.

I loved Delirium's Mistress, and when I found out there was more I tried to get my hands on Nights Sorceries. This book that I eventually got has both. I am still satisfied with how Delirium's Mistress ends, but I do like to spend time in the world of the flat earth, and I liked that I got a glimpse of what comes next. The stories are intertwined, in some surprising ways at the end.

This is my favorite Tanith Lee. Everything about it is exquisite. I was about to write (well, I guess I am) that I can randomly open to any page (I've read it so many times), start reading and begin crying (no, I don't need meds!) within 10 pages - but the book is actually so beautiful and painful, just thinking about it can mist me up (yes, I really am sure I don't need meds). It won't resonate with everyone, but it's something of a bible for those it does.

I remember reading this when I was a teen and how I adored these characters. The writing is a bit too descriptive [some would call it purple prose nowadays] but I still liked it and it didn't take away my enjoyment of the story. I'm not sure if it would be my cup of tea now. But then people and their taste changes over time.

I'm sure it's the same for me.

snore. I really loved the first collection 'The Lords of Darkness'. this last collection was dull and over-wrought.
