A rather blase ending to be honest. 2 Rings collected, earth returned to, everything worked out, it was just wicked busy.
I liked this better than his Well World series, but less than his 4 Lords of the Diamond series. ( )

This was a fine conclusion to the series. At the start of the book, there were two rings to find (and a third to secure from a bad guy) - so, as a previous reviewer mentioned, this book was a bit rushed. Chalker didn't spend as much time as normal on the different planets they when too. But that didn't mean there wasn't the normal exploration of gender and form and how it affects a society. The loss of Vulture was well-written and touching - particularly because he/she had become a favorite character. And the fate of Raven....
The ending seems a bit....simple compared to the complexity of getting the rings. But even the characters noted this. And I thought the ending was as it should be. Over all, this was a satisfying series, one I shall recommend to anyone looking for a fun, interesting sci-fi read. ( )

The nice thing about being dead was that you could, without any fear or guilt, do all those things that were dangerous or unacceptable when one was alive.
