Mavra Chang was once a master criminal, notorious throughout the galaxy. But for 11 long years she has been trapped in a nonhuman body on the Well World - the master control planet for the universe, where untold numbers of strange races exist, separated by barriers erected by the mysterious, vanished race that built the Well World billions of years ago.
Orbiting the planet is a planetoid concealing Obie, a supercomputer that could restore Mavra Chang to her original form - if she can reach it. Unfortunately, the only spaceship on the planet is hidden in the northern hemisphere, a place no living creature can survive. She soon learns that her enemies are plotting to eliminate her, steal the ship, and escape from the Well World…. But many others have planned her demise before, and Mavra Chang is still alive and well - which is more than can be said of those who once wished her ill.

All the Well World novels are brilliant. There is even one out there I haven't read yet. I'm looking forward to listening all the way through. "The Sea Is Full Of Stars," was the last one I knew about. (Many of these novels have been out of print for years.) Read Midnight first and be assured if you like it, you should keep going. Jack once told me he never wrote series, just really long novels that had to be broken up into pieces. Some of the Well World books are like that. If you have just discovered this series, keep going, it is wonderful to have them back in print, and in audio versions as well. I've read most of these several times and these audio books are fresh and new to me. I think Jack would be very pleased with them. (I'm a bit biased having known the author if you can't tell... His voice went silent way too early but he left a lasting legacy to the world.)
