It's a Duane, so of course it's saving the world from the Darkness by figuring out who you are and surrendering to truth. She's about as formulaic as Andre Norton - amazing what variety you can get from something that can be described with a simple formula! The Doors series is somewhat frustrating - been waiting for the fourth one for...16 years now? Ah well, it's a good re-read anyway. I like Herewiss.

I like most of Diane Duane's Wizardry series (minus A Wizard Abroad and the books about the cats), so this has been on my To Read list for a very long time. I finally decided to ILL it. And I do like it. It only seems slightly dated, for having been written in the 70's. Gotta love those drugged up 70's.It's interesting to see the world of her wizardry books from a different perspective. Not a child, not a cat, not our world. This reads more like fantasy than the other books, which I tend to read as science fiction. I'm ready to read the next one. But if book 4 is still not published and is still in indefinite status, it's really going to bug me when I finish reading the first three.

Herewiss, Prince of the Brightwood, has the power of Flame. In a man this is a very rare occurence. However he cannot control it, and so not use it. He goes on a quest to find out how to control his power so he can help his (male) lover regain the throne.Not a favourite book. For me it focusses to much on the romantic relationships between the characters. Lot's of implied sex, lots of love and insecurities (often combined), it just doesn't work for me. In it's genre however a good book.

I read this a thousand years ago when it first came out and I LOVED it. I reread it ten or fifteen years later and it didn't hold up so well. If I were to read it now, I suspect I would have another reaction again, somewhere in the middle, perhaps. It really was one of my very favourites then, and sure, maybe it isn't high art, but the energy was great and I sure had a crush on one of the characters.

It's pulp fantasy, and the protagonist verges on being a Gary Stu... but you also get to see Duane take her first shot at creating a cosmology in which wrestling with entropy is central.
