HASH(0xb59afee8) out of 5 stars Memorable Concluding Volume to World-Spanning Epic Fantasy Trilogy May 28 2015
By John Kwok - Published on
Until I stumbled upon Adam Lee’s “Octoberland”, the concluding volume to his “The Dominions of Irth” trilogy, I hadn’t read before any of his fiction. Relying solely upon what I read, Lee’s trilogy has to be seen as one of the finest epic fantasy trilogies published originally in the 1990s. Lee demonstrates that he is a fine prose stylist and memorable storyteller, using a lyrical prose that anticipates Catherynne Valente and Robert Jackson Bennett’s notable achievements in fantasy fiction. (However, Lee isn’t quite the superb prose stylists that Valente and Bennett are.) He also demonstrates that he is a superb conjurer of worlds, with his “Dominions of Irth” saga one of the notable examples of fantasy world building published in the last few decades. In “Octoberland”, Earth is threatened by diabolical magic that has seized a city rebuilt from the ashes, ruled by a weak ruler and his ever scheming witch wife. Meanwhile, in contemporary Manhattan, New York, NY, an old wizard seeks eternal youth from the blood of his devoted human followers, not realizing that his magic has opened a gateway for that diabolical magic. Fans of epic fantasy who enjoy reading about magicians, goblins and ordinary humans, will find much to rejoice in “Octoberland”.
HASH(0xb3f7d030) out of 5 stars A neat conclusion Sept. 17 2007
By Alessar - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
My expectations for this book were rather low, based on the other reviews and my feeling that the writing quality slipped at the end of book two. However, I was pleasantly surprised by this book. This volume was somewhat less epic than the previous two and basically split between two plotlines, one on Irth and one on Earth. However, this neatly tied up all the hanging character threads from the previous books and brought the story to a solid and unambiguous conclusion. The author didn't really have any new conceptual themes to introduce in this book and it read a little lighter for that. I still feel the whole series just reiterates themes from his other book The Last Legends of Earth (not written under the Adam Lee psuedonym). If you have read the other books in this trilogy, the ending is worth it. However, this is clearly a "wrap-up" book and cannot stand on its own.

HASH(0xb3f943e4) out of 5 stars Disappointing 'Octoberland' lacks compelling story Sept. 7 1999
By Michael Scott - Published on
Format: Paperback
'Octoberland' never lives up to the brilliant fantasy of the first two volumes of the Irth trilogy.
Author Lee uses a modified version of the awkward chapter structure he used in 'The Wolf and the Crown'. Lee almost completely abandons the world of Irth, focusing his story on The Dark Shore or Irthlings who immerse themselves in Dark Shore culture.
Where are the Spiderlands? Or the aelves? Those stories both had the potential for great fantasy. What was most lacking though was the presence of Lord Drev, a central character in book 1 of the trilogy. One can argue that his story has already been told, but his was a fascinating character that I, for one, would have liked to read more about.
