    A must have series!

    Both are top notch. I couldn't say one was better than the other.

    Marid Audran has become everything he once despised. Not so long ago, he was a hustler in the Budayeen, an Arabian ghetto in a Balkanized future Earth. Back then, as often as not, he didn't have the money to buy himself a drink. But he had his independence.Now Marid works for Friedlander Bey, "godfather" of the Budayeen, a man whose power stretches across a shattered, crumbling world.

    Cliff says: "The series just keeps getting better."
    The series just keeps getting better.

    The world is so vibrant and well developed. You feel like such a place really exists.

    The series concludes. Just buy it already!

    I have read and listened to the series several times over the years. I take away some new element each and every time.
