    One thought on “Cinnabar Shadows”

    1. The world was (sorta) interesting but not strongly written enough to pull me in. I kept waiting for a truly suspenseful moment and not finding one - even at the climax of the arc. Some of the characters are interesting enough, especially Pavek and Hamanu, that I’ll look into the rest of the series to see if they’re continuing characters. I’d call this an ok book - but it’s also a fast read so that’s not a terrible thing.

    2. SUMMARY:Book Four in the Chronicles of Athas further explores the harsh life of the Dark Sun world's citizens. A member of the magically disoriented "New Race" from the Pristine Tower area, Mahtra lives among the outcasts beneath the city--until she decides to confront her greatest challenge ever: to hunt down Kakzim, the evil alchemist. Map.

    3. Another Fine piece of Pulp fantasy, introducing a unique character in an odd series of adventures, also drawing on 'Just plain Pavik' of Abbey's earlier piece. Abbey states that Pavik is loosely based on Gorbachev, the ex-president of democratic Russia. Nifty!
