Smart, funny, humane, and superbly well-written, this is science fiction at its most entertaining…
The hilarious second installment in Ellison’s The Last Nevergate Chronicles continues Glendyl’s exhilarating adventure as she finds herself transported to a sinister underground realm. Glendyl Fenderwel and Jamis Pojorolli are still together but stuck in the dragon queen Emmishak’s underground realm. An unfortunate incident separates the duo, sending them deeper into the green-tinged darkness. Trying to look for an escape, the duo unravels a long-buried secret. Ellison is endowed with the kind of imagination that avoids predictable science fiction; he delights in strange settings and the characters who inhabit his fanciful world are even stranger. He adeptly combines a large array of plot threads in the novel’s late stages, and a shrewd finale adds numerous new pieces to the game board, making the next installment unmissable. Despite the madcap ride the novel offers, its central message hits home: resilience is the key to success. Witty, intelligent, and finely crafted, this is pure entertainment.
