One of my all-time favourite series, if only for the wonderfully vivid descriptions of cultures and customs. The Star King is a space opera tale but felt like a western at times and a James Bond story at others.
Demon Princes omnibus dejonio, Gaean Reach.
I was very entertained, and can’t wait to read the remaining four parts of his encounter with I’ve finished the first segment of this book, The Star King.
Our protagonist dispatches one of the five “demon princes,” arch-space criminals, who have wronged him, in each of the individual novels. This is definitely my husband’s genre and not mine. What work could be more useful? I’ve reviewed these separately at FanLit: I loved reading about the strange places and planets that were described in detail along with the unusual and interesting alien creatures. Other books in the series. It’s not bad but it’s no Dying Earth.
Thanks for telling us about the problem. Return to Book Page. At one point there is a colorful fight between the robot dnazd and a real dnazd.
The Demon Princes, Volume One: The Star King, The Killing Machine, The Palace of Love by Jack Vance
My copy is pages long, making it the shortest book in the series. I looked forward to the snippets of philosophical insight that often intr Jack Vance’s books are fun to lod.
I thoroughly enjoyed both volumes 1 and 2 of The Demon Princes. For Gersen, however, revenge is more of a mission of justice than an act of anger. Herein may be the finest distillation of that distinctive Vancean voice, which is at once wry and sincere and somehow un-self-consciously magniloquent. Want to Read saving….
Dec 06, Mark rated it really liked it Shelves: A few readers might have some difficulty emphasizing with Kirth Gersen because he is so obsessed with killing star kings. Jun 30, Gordon Howard rated jafk liked it.
Jack inspired dungeons and dragons who based their magic ssytem directly on the dying earth series of stories. Later he joins up with a tribe of primitive creatures who are at war with Hekkus and ends up challenging the leader of the tribe in order to rescue a woman in distress. This time he is after Viole Falushe. The Star King was first released in and as a serial in Galaxy magazine.
Gersen visits the planet Sarkovy with a woman friend named Alusz Ilphigenia Eperje-Tokay in order to track down a lead that might help him find Falushe. His characterizations are more vibrant sketches than fleshed out portraits although never flat-out flatand the plotting suffers some, but these are not the elements by which Jack Vance entrances.
For me it is still the least fascinating of the five book series, but it is still well worth reading. One, this edition is riddled with typos. Gersen, however, has concerns beyond getting his own ship back.
The Demon Princes, Volume One: The Star King, The Killing Machine, The Palace of Love
An assassin with a philosophical bent of mind seeks revenge on five arch-criminals who killed his parents. Originally the name of the first star king encountered was Grendel the Monster but in the novel released in April he was renamed Attel Malagate or Malagate the Woe.
This is the second time I’ve read The Palace of Love and I liked it better the second time, changing my earlier rating of a 3 now to a 4. The plots and characters are a bit dated, but overall the story is still fascinating. This attack was subsequently referred to as the Mount Pleasant Massacre. Excellent, no one can compare to Vance. One, this edi The Star King: But what does Viole Falushe have to do with Vogel Filschner and the girls he kidnapped years ago?
Two, the pace is really slow.
