I was very excited to see these selections by Neil Gaiman and this did not disappoint. The story was well written, rich with sensation and experiences, not all of them pleasant but the end of the book I felt completely satisfied. Sherill's writing made it easy for me to empathize with the Minotaur, and his character transcends the mythical beast and becomes very human and very familiar. Really glad I bought this book.
while the main the story does sound familiar (you will be thinking of Han Solo when introduced to Cole) the plot is varied enough and clever enough that you wont mind and will probably forget anyway and become completely immersed in the adventures of the sheriff of yrnameer. the narration makes the book, it is perfect! a thoroughly enjoyable romp across the galaxy, well worth a credit.
Painfully melodramatic and unabashedly racist. These books should not be counted as part of the cannon of great historical fantasy literature.
