Exiles at the Well of Souls | [Jack L. Chalker]

Exiles at the Well of Souls

Antor Trellig, head of a ruthless interstellar syndicate, has seized a supercomputer with godlike powers that could make him omnipotent. The Council offers master criminal Mavra Chang any reward she desires if she can stop Trellig - and horrible, lingering death if she fails. But neither Trellig nor Mavra has taken the Well World into consideration. Built by the ancient Markovians, the Well World controls the design of the cosmos. When the opponents are drawn across space to the mysterious planet, they find themselves in new, alien bodies and in the middle of a battle where strange races fight desperately.

    Story
    "Not a compelling sequel."
    What would have made Exiles at the Well of Souls better?

    It is half a story at best. It was slower moving than book 1 and did not resolve in any way. I feel like it is just setting up for the "real story," but I am not overly motivated to get the next book at this point.


    Would you recommend Exiles at the Well of Souls to your friends? Why or why not?

    No. I like the narration and the main character is well developed, but not worth the time at this time. If I read book 3, and it pulls this together, I may need to change my review, but at this time I am not motivated to continue the series.


    Which character – as performed by Peter Macon – was your favorite?

    Mavra Chang (protagonist) and Trellig (Antagonist) were both well performed. I enjoy him as a narrator. He has a deep and masculine voice, but changes with characters and does female characters convincingly with no trouble. I will look for him as a narrator in the future.


    What character would you cut from Exiles at the Well of Souls?

    None

    "Enter the Well World and Be Changed Forever...."
    If you could sum up Exiles at the Well of Souls in three words, what would they be?

    Everything Changes Once....


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mavra Chang is the prototype female warrior adventurer. I loved her bad ass attitude, her positive attitude about solving problems and her personal pride. Great character.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I would say the ending scene in the book. i don't to spoil it but let's put it this way...Mavra does not ever feel sorry for herself....


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Mavra Chang could whip Xena and Laura Croft for breakfast!


    Any additional comments?

    The Well World is a classic series. You really get drawn into the entire reality Chalker has created. But his writing style is not dense, there is nothing you cannot understand or follow. I am going to listen to the entire series and I have asked Audible to make all 7 available. Keep your fingers crossed on that because once you enter the Well World its hard to get out.
