** spoiler alert ** I probably got a little too hung up on to what extent this book was a distant Majipoor prequel-- the shapeshifting characters and the gigantic mountain make it hard not to read that way. If that's the case, it ends up undercutting the book's finish a bit, as you know Poilar's big project to make his people find their independence fails, at least for tens of thousands of years.

Other than that issue, which was as much a matter of how I read the book as the book itself, a pretty good read overall. Silverberg is astonishingly prolific-- in his hundred or so novels you've got some classics, some weak spots, and a lot of perfectly readable fiction.
