I read this book 19 years ago, and the impression was so strong that this is the only book I've ever reviewed(of my own volition)!
Mr. Chalker finds the perfect balance between his mesmerizing setting desriptions
and his nail-biting action. After 19 years, I still get a familiar "feeling"
when I think or hear about the author or his work. This book has
the quirky subtleties of Detective Columbo, the relentless action of
The Terminator, and, creates and fosters the need to know "why" as manifested by the success of the British TV cult classic - The Prisoner.
No amount of plot description seems appropriate for The Well of Souls
series. Suffice it to say that if you have a good imagination, you like to read, and you love
adventure with a wonderfully developed protagonist, you'll be sending me
a thank you letter. (That is, if you'll make the time from reading all the Jack Chalker
Well of Souls' books you can find.)
