did not like it
bookshelves: sf
Read in January, 2000

Chalker continues his attempt to mix (a) discussion of governments and power/coercion versus freedom, (b) magic fantasy, and (c) what I can only describe as soft porn. This book in the series focuses on (c) and it just ruins the whole book, if not the whole series. Yes, agreed, many men if given magic power would abuse it to makeover women as idealized sex slaves, but we don't have to go through it over and over and over again in detail.

James I love your reviews, Mark. They're hilarious - and helpful.

Mark Thank you, gentle reader, for your kind words. It gives me great solace to know, as I force myself through this dreary chore, that in some small way I am serving my fellow man. Or woman. Or artificial intelligence. Or exceptionally literate chimpanzee.
