Janet Morris is magical - because everything she touches turns to gold. Already a fan of the Silistra Quartet, I could resist starting this series, and I'm so glad I did. Every word is absolutely spellbinding and she writes with such passion. Glorious. If only all books could be quite this enjoyable I would be a very happy lady.
Wonderful, riveting, never a dull moment as we ride with the cavalry of the Sacred Band, exploring long-lost ancient worlds, cultures and customs, fighting to keep some of them alive and out of harm, suffering and triumphing along with the valor heroes. Wonderful read!
I’m sure we’ve all heard the expression, “raining cats and dogs?” That idiom provides a rather apt introduction to our story, for a city of immortals mired on the shores of land, sea and eternity is subjected to a strangely disturbing shower of fish; carp to be exact. Along with it comes a naked man – Nikodemus, also called Stealth, sworn rightman to Tempus, avatar of the storm god Enlil.But how was it Niko arrived in this city at the edge of time under such circumstances? Why does his [...]
Once again, Janet and Chris Morris have written a novel full of action, suspense, and human drama. Every main and major character is fully realized; we get inside the heads and hearts of all her characters; we understand their motives, sympathize with them, and even have some empathy for them weak. This novel is intricately rich in texture , character and human drama. Politics and religion play important roles because they are integral to the characters and their city. Magic, too, is important, [...]
City at the Edge of Time is another addition in Morris's Silistra Quartet Series. Our ancient gods have come with a most intense power in this dark fantasy with battles of evil forces and other hybrid immortals. Love the fusion here of a real historical theme mixed into a fantasy. Crafted with colorful and vivid details to transport the reader to a different world.
Not bad, but not nearly as good as the earlier books in the Tempus series, and especially the books and stories tied in more clearly to the Sanctuary works.
I love everything Janet Morris writes. This was no exception. Her novels take me to another place. Loved it!
