Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Packed with the lore McKiernan has developed in 24 years of writing about the world of Mithgar, this dense novel is set largely between Silver Wolf, Black Falcon(2000) and the collection Red Slippers(2004). The main plot deals with a voyage of the fabulous Elvenship, the Eroean, in search of wonder and adventure. Before the ship can set sail with a crew of fighting men and dwarfs, there's the obligatory tour through the countryside so that characters can reminisce about events in earlier volumes while picking up additional crew members, like a tiny, fox-riding Pysk and two gratingly cute, pointy-eared buccans. Meanwhile, the necromancer Nunde is lurking offstage, feverishly plotting. Appreciating the nuances depends on understanding earlier events; newcomers will find no footholds here. (Oct.)

Library Journal

A prophecy and a dream about a lost city made of jade draw Aravan, the captain of the Elvenship Eroean , and his life mate, the Magekind Seer Aylis, along with a crew of trusted friends, into a perilous journey in search of the mystical place. Behind the scenes, the Necromancer Nunde, follower of a slain god and a sworn enemy of Aravan, plots the death of the elven captain and all those he holds dear. Set in time between the end of Silver Wolf , Black Falcon , and the beginning of Red Slippers: More Tales of Mithgar , the latest addition to the series brings back familiar characters and further develops an old enmity. McKiernan's talent for charming characters and exciting adventures of derring-do make this a good addition to most fantasy collections and an essential purchase for libraries possessing the other series titles.

    Dennis does it again!

    Dennis L. McKiernan's City of Jade is a wonderful book that is a must read for fans of the Mithgar series! In it you'll meet new characters as well as old favorites such as Aravan and Aylis. Even if you've never read a Mithgar novel, like almost all of the books (even most of the trilogies) this book can stand alone and be a good starting point for your Mithgarian adventures.
