Product Description

From Library Journal

The conclusion to the story begun in Lords of the Middle Dark and continued in Pirates of the Thunder and Warriors of the Storm. Jon Nighthawk and the crew of the spaceship Thunder face their greatest battle in the effort to obtain the last two rings they need to break the stranglehold of Master System and free the people of Earth. Chalker's talent for intricate plotting maintains suspense down to the wire in one of his finest sf series to date. Recommended. JC

4.0 out of 5 stars Great entertainment July 7 2000

Format:Mass Market Paperback
The Rings of the Master books are the kind of science fiction that you like to read over and over again. They are not particularly original - after all, there have been countless books written about computers being in control of humankind. But they're fun to read, the characters are great, and the aliens are as weird as aliens can be. And I have to say, the code that the protagonists have to eventually figure out at the end is pretty genius - see if you can decipher it before they do! I give this series three stars for content, five stars for enjoyment. Don't bother with it if you're in the mood for something really deep and earthshaking, but I still number these four books among my favorites. Happy reading!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of fun! July 20 2002
By Jason - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This series may not have the deepest writing or characters, but the plot over the 4-book series is intricate and sustained ingeniously throughout. This is one of the few series I've read where the final book is actually satisfying and a great conclusion. It's a little like Star Wars meets The Terminator, where the protagonists have to fight terrible odds against an evil artificial intelligence which has taken over Earth. Highly recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun space opera! Feb. 7 2008
By M. Arensberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I really enjoyed this series. I found it to be a fast fun space opera that's not too deep. However, it does delve into the whole "Man's inhumanity to man" idea quite a bit. It's reminds me of a mix of Star Wars, LOTR and Terminator.

This is the first series by Chalker that I have read, and I can't wait to read more by him.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun but still not as good as book two June 26 2006
By M. J. Keel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
In Masks of the Martyrs Jack Chalker brings his strangely fun space swashbuckler to a close. Hawks and his crew of pirates/revolutionaries must take the last two rings and shut down Master System all while dodging the tyranical computer's minions as well as those who would use the rings to rule humanity themselves. We find out more details about the pirates of the Thunder, Chalker again puts them in a really bizarre situation in order to get ring four, and there is lots of fun to be had in the heroics and space battles.

This book falls short in that the end was something of an anticlimax and I did not find myself really caring for the the characters I followed through the four books. Somewhere about halfway through I began to feel detached and a little bored at times. However, Chalker came through with some memorable moments and truly inventive situations that kept me going to the end.
