May 24, Boone rated it it was amazing. It takes immense talent to get his ideas out in a way that vqnce not overburden the reader yet still maintains an air of plausibility. This is definitely my husband’s genre and not mine.
The Demon Princes, Volume One: The Star King, The Killing Machine, The Palace of Love
His first novel, The Dying Earthwas published in to great acclaim. Nov 10, M.
An insanely fecund imagination: I read a compilation of all five novels, of which three are in this tome. Gersen, however, has concerns beyond getting his own ship back. Our protagonist dispatches one of the five “demon princes,” arch-space criminals, who have wronged him, in each of the individual novels.
So far he has succeeded in doing so with two of them. Just a moment while we prijcipes you in to your Goodreads account. But it turns out to be Gersen’s spaceship and Gersen ends up with the ship Teehalt had been using. In The Killing Machine, the second novel, there is further development of the main character, Kirth Gersen, so that ideally should also be read prior demonuo reading The Palace of Love. This is a reference to the horrific giant combat machines Hekkus commissions to be made, the latest one resembling a highly aggressive, giant alien creature.
The Demon Princes, Volume One: The Star King, The Killing Machine, The Palace of Love by Jack Vance
I had heard that Jack Vance was a master of science fiction, so I sought out one of his books to see for myself. Jack Vance is still a xemonio writer. Jack inspired dungeons and dragons who based their magic ssytem directly on the dying earth series of stories. He is now on the trail of Malagate, one of the five star kings who killed his parents and destroyed oos colony he lived in. Jack Vance makes reading a page revenge tale as exciting as reading the dictionary.
At one time when still jqck teenager Falushe kidnapped an entire choir of girls and sold them all into slavery. For Gersen, however, revenge is more of a mission of justice than an act of anger.
Jack Vance comes up with the best character names. The most interesting portrait is of Falushes’s planet and The Palace of Love which is treated with Vance’s usual talent for world building as he describes the architecture, people, customs, laws, and culture. Good story teller; good suspense; characters are pretty interesting on the whole for sci-fi. Jack Vance’s books are fun to read. You will have useful work: While this war machine is being created Hekkus kidnaps some children of wealthy parents in order to raise more revenue.
I read it several years ago and rated it a 4 but after reading it a second time I am rating it a 5. The Palace of Love: Amazingly detailed creation of future worlds. Feb 17, Daniel rated it it was amazing Shelves: I can’t really say too much bad about it except that similar plot solution devices vanxe utilized throughout all 3 tales.
Of course there are exceptions Cordwainer Smith and Samuel Delany come to mind, not coincidentally my two favourite science fiction authors but for the vast majority of science fiction literature out there, the language it is written in is serviceable at best and all too often merely clunky and stilted. This is no small feat and he should be given more of his due. Two, the pace is really slow.
