I hadn't read the previous books in this series, but finding myself absolutely ravenous for a fantasy novel, any fantasy novel, I plucked this off the shelf, hidden a dusty corner of my ship's "library" (if it can even be called that, four shelves with 20-30 books on each). The book is short, and understandable without even reading the others in the series. Quick fantasy fluff, it entertained me for 2 hours (very short book) ( )

Thus we find our heroes battling once again for the existence of the multiverse. This time because the Hosts (of Hell) are sucking energy out of the interstitial spaces. I think that's supposed to mean they are sucking the fat out from between the universes and, like organs in a body with no fat, if they connect they go *poof*.

Oh, and some of the most important Guests have gone missing.

There is quite a bit glossed over and, again, it all hinges on what Incarnadine is doing and why. I'm sure it's because we are viewing things over the shoulders of the main characters, but really we should by now be able to get more into the head of the one person that can actually explain just what is and is not real in the multiverse. Well, okay, we aren't in the head of any character here, but I think you can figure out what I mean... maybe.

Other than that, this is another highly executed and well-written work by DeChancie. ( )
