bookshelves: sci-fi

I sometimes got a little lost on the Isenj politics and their civil war which results from the intervention of the Eqbas, but otherwise this fourth book in the Wess'har Series was very enjoyable. I loved Shan's developing role as matriarch in her household of two males (Aras and Ade, and their corresponding close relationship as housebrothers). And the Lindsay and Rayat strand of the story is fascinating. It is, however, so complex as to only appeal to those who have read and loved the earlier parts of the series. I probably enjoyed the earlier books in the series more, as the focus has shifted from Shan, but they're still fantastic sci-fi.

Re-read - October 2010
