2019 reread: No real change in my opinion though I think that I appreciated Mavin and Himaggery's relationship more this time around.
This second trilogy in the Land of the True Game series goes back in time to give us, as the title says, the chronicles of Mavin Manyshaped (Peter's mother). Not quite as enthralling as the first trilogy but it does show the beginnings of a more feminist viewpoint which was the hallmark of many of Tepper's later works. ( )

Around the inner maze of Danderbat keep -- with its hidden places for the elders, its sleeping chambers, kitchens and nurseries -- lay the vaster labyrinth of the outer p'natti: slything walls interrupted by square-form doors, an endless array of narrowing pillars, climbing ups and slithering downs, launch platforms so low as to require only leaping legs and others so high that wings would be the only guarantee of no injury.
