    I have previously read and really enjoyed 2 books by this writer, On Stranger Tides and The Drawing of the Dark I decided to try this, his 2nd book written and was not impressed To me the story wandered and really never seemed to try go anywhere toward an ending, the story just happened to end it seemed For me that was a not recommended book


  2. James James says:

    A nice enough diversion that never really coheres into anything very interesting it especially stumbles in the last few pages where Powers rushed a ton of stuff together It s not as good as his first novel, Forsake the Sky, but it does show the promise of what he would achieve later Recommended for Tim Powers fans only.


  3. Cooke Cooke says:

    This was a dress rehearsal for his later and much better post apocalyptic novel Dinner at Deviant s Palace The protagonist of that novel even uses Brother Thomas as an alias at one point Still, there are some intriguing scenes and ideas here, including a chess match in which the pieces are glasses of alcohol that must be drunk when captured, and an android romance sub plot.


  4. The The says:

    SlightThis is very different from Power s later books It was written when he was pretty young and it really does show its age It is very episodic and apart from all the drinking it could be a Young Adult or Children s book.There are a few flashes of humour but the book is very slight.He has written some fantastic books but I really wouldn t recommend this especially at the current price.

    I knew this wasn t going to be the best book ever, but I m a completist I was surprised how close the plot and characters are to Forsake the Sky.


  7. Phil Zimmerman Phil Zimmerman says:

    A rather run of the mill story of a monk who ran away from the monestary and started drinking alot and lead a revolution Totally crazy and not a typical Tim Powers tale.
