It's starts where the last book ends.I learned more of the background of Majipor and how it begins with Hissune had discovering the library in the depth of Labyrinth, and learns the history of Majipoor from the memory cubes.
I cant' recall any, because the Lord Valentines's Castle was the first book I willingly picked to read without it being require.
Inyanna is my favorite charactor. The young shop keeper inherit her store from her mother and grandmother, wanting more of her life than operating a store in a small town.
Come and see the through the eyes of the people who lived in the history of Majipor's legends.
I would listen to it again.
James Kruger. I listen avidly to books and have since forever ago, I drive for a living and audio books are a life saver!
I have been reading, re-reading, and now listening to this series of books since they were first published, and haven't ever gotten over how well written they are.
Character portraits, plot development, and story line continue to please again, and again.
Well worth your enjoyment!
I read this book when it was first released and I was still a teenager. More than thirty years later it's still just as enjoyable , perhaps even more so. A clever way to give an insight into the history and political set up of Majipoor. bring on the next installment.
