Format: Mass Market Paperback
It took me a while to get into the first book but once I read it I wanted to read all the remaining book in the series. It took me a while to track all four of them down. NOw I can't put it down. Definitely kept me interested the whole time. I took it on my trip to London and during the 9 hrs flight time I only got up once to use the restroom. I was totally hooked. The characters are starting to develop more and become more likeable.

This book has a new way of opening up a science fiction world. There are spaceships, robots, Artificial Intelligence, and really cool alien beings. I love to read this book when I am bored or if I have to do a book report. It is awesome how the book opens up new storys for each character. ITS THE BEST!

Rather undratitional twist on old theme's set this book apart. Some of the concepts are mind boggling and I was left wondering just where the author's mind went in it's free time. All the technology is well explained and unlike some other si-fi books.

Plot twists galore! May 8 2006
By M. J. Keel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
If you like swashbucklers, science fiction, stories rich in culture clash, and novels that make you examine morality anew you will love Pirates of the Thunder. Follow Hawks and his crew of unlikely revolutionaries as they figure out interstellar travel in a 14 km long starship all the while being chased by Master Systems minions who will stop at nothing to silence them once and for all before they find and use the Five Rings of the Masters.

Chalker is ingenious at taking the plot places that you would never suspect all the while keeping his characters interesting and more than one dimensional. I am pretty good at guessing where plots of movies and books are going, but there were at least two times while reading this where I gasped at a plot twist. This is not literature but is one of the funnest books I have read in a long tmie. Highly recommended!
galactic swashbuckling escape June 4 2008
By 2theD - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Let's start off by saying the Book 1 of Rings of the Master was a fine novel, indeed. It was packed with speculative fiction, science fiction, heavy character introductions and development, plot thickening and escape. Now, we come to Book 2 of the series and find, firstly, that this book is about half as long as the first book. However, charcter development (a key in this series) is still be explored to a high degree. Just as well since the cast find theselvs getting deeper and deeper in the uncharted escape from earth. Adventure is shifted into high gear. Besides te disappointed length of the book, it's a great follow-up!
great series, great author March 18 2013

Not everyone likes Jack L Chalker, but I enjoyed his books as an early teen and somehow over the last 20 years lost these books. It was a real treat finding them on Amazon (I have searched numerous times) and being able to revisit this story again and again is like seeing an old friend.
