    Cherryh has an excellent concept, with slightly disappointing execution.

    First off, these stories really do have a fascinating idea behind them. An ancient race, the qhal, created portals that could take their users to different points in space and time. However, going back in time through the gates caused a massive rip in the space-time continuum that all but destroyed them. Eons later, the gates were rediscovered by humans, and put into use again. However, when the humans discovered how dangerous the gates could be, a small team of warriors and scientists were sent on a mission to shut down the gates, destroying each as they passed through until all of them had been destroyed. It has been centuries, and only one of them remains, still at her quest. These are the stories of Morgaine, the last of the expedition, and Vanye, a fuedal warrior she encounters on one of the worlds who joins her. While the concept is very interesting, sadly Cherryh's style is very dry, and her characters somewhat flat. The aline cultures that Morgaine and Vanye encounter are well developed and quite interesting, but the actual plot and characters could have been better. Still, these can be an OK read, and for $8 you do get three books.

    One of my favorite Fantasy series. Adds a bit of Science Fiction

    One of my favorite Fantasy series.
    Adds a bit of Science Fiction cloaked into Fantasy, makes one think, and epic story.

    (The halfling's made me think a tie into Tolkien, but it has a different meaning, and was pleasantly surprised.)
    Suspect it was the inspiration behind the Stargate Movie at its core.
