Overview

Once, Mavra Chang had been a master criminal, notorious throughout the galaxy, but for eleven long years she has been trapped on the Well World- the Master Control World for the universe, where untold myriads of strange races exist, separated by barriers erected by the mysterious vanished race which built the Well World billions of years ago.

She and her companions had been transformed by the inexplicable mechanism of the Well World into no-longer human bodies. Orbiting the planet was a planetoid concealing Obie, a supercomputer that could restore Mavra Chang to her original bodily form- if she could reach it. But the only spaceship on the planet was hidden in the northern hemisphere, where no living creature could go and survive. Then she learned that her enemies were plotting to eliminate her, steal the ship and escape from the Well World.

But many others had planned her demise before, and Mavra Chang was still alive and well; which was more than could be said of those who had wished for ill�

Chapter One

THE WARS OF THE WELL, PART II

Part I of this very large novel may be found as Exiles at the Well of Souls. A prequel, Midnight at the Well of Souls may be read before or after this book. The Wars of the Well was conceived as a single novel but published in two books because of its tremendous length. In order to accommodate the split, each novel has been written to stand alone. But in an ideal world Exiles should be read before this book. JLC

I read this series many years ago (over 30?) and it has always been a favorite of mine. It went out of print for many years or I would have read it again earlier. It was just as good the second time around. I am not a big fantasy reader but appreciate more science fiction type work. This series has a bit of both and is exceptionally well written. Be sure to get the whole set before it goes out of print again. It is an EXCELLENT READ!!!
