Crossposted at Bookstooge.booklikes.blogspot.wordpress.leafmarks.com & Bookstooge's Reviews on the Road Facebook Group by Bookstooge's Exalted Permission. Title: Shadows of Sanctuary Series: Thieves' World Editor: Robert Asprin Rating: of 5 Battle Axes Genre: SFF Pages: 338 Format: OCR Scan Synopsis: Further stories from the city of Sanctuary, recently taken over by the Empire. It just keeps going lower into the gutter. My Thoughts: Janet Morris writes several of these stories and she seems to be a huge fan of the M/M mercenary idea. What a disgusting pervert. This was going downhill anyway, but that pushed this into the "won't be reading any more of this series" territory. And it was becoming more about the Empire as much as Sanctuary. I don't want to read about some grubby Empire and some disgusting mercenaries. " ( )

The Thieves World ongoing shared world series continues with #3. Some new authors this time, Vonda McIntyre, Paxson and Cherryh join the regulars. This is still high quality fantasy with a coherent story line, though by this point it is starting to wander off at times. ( )

The 3rd in the series. I was right, I enjoyed the 3rd more than the 2nd, because I was familiar with the characters. Must look for the first one. ( )

A group of authors develop a world that's dark and nasty and set their imaginations free and oh man do they do nasty things to their characters. As an exploration of a dark world it's interesting but in some ways I really didn't engage with any of the characters. ( )

Brilliant fantasy writing.. Funny, believable characters, action just left of centre keeps you guessing. Recommended read in my humble opinion. ( )
