    Inhaltsangabe

    The Elder Isles, located in what is now the Bay of Biscay off the coast of Old Gaul, are made up of 10 contending kingdoms, all vying with each other for control. At the centre of much of the intrigue is Casmir, the ruthless and ambitious king of Lyonnesse. His beautiful but otherworldly daughter, Suldrun, is part of his plans. He intends to cement an alliance or two by marrying her well. But Suldrun is as determined as he and defies him. Casmir coldly confines her to the overgrown garden that she loves to frequent, and it is here that meets her love and her tragedy unfolds. Political intrigue, magic, war, adventure and romance are interwoven in a rich and sweeping tale set in a brilliantly realized fabled land.

    Kritikerstimmen

    “(Vance) gives you glimpses of entire worlds with just perfectly turned language. If he’d been born south of the border, he’d be up for a Nobel Prize.” (Dan Simmons)
    “Vance has the narrative force, the willingness to look very coldly at violence and cruelty, to not shy away…. He has an amazing ear and writes a beautiful sentence.” (Michael Chabon)

    Poorly read marvelous fantasy

    Suldrun grows up as princess of Lyonesse. She discovers a secret garden. The story is wrought carefully and would have no doubt enchanted me but for the poor reader. The personae's speech goes well, but everything else is read in the same tone with hardly a stop to distinguish chapters, thoughts and description or sentences. I thought I might get used to it but didn't and had to stop listening. I'll buy the print, though, because the story is obviously a masterpiece. Try listening before you buy!

    Schlecht vorgelesen leider leider 18 h lang geübt

    Sorry Kevin T. Collins aber das ist so beschämend ich hoffe du kannst das lesen und änderst etwas daran, Wie kann man so ein Buch runterlesen ohne Gefühle und ohne Spannung rüberzubringen einfach nur Bla Bla Bla das hat ein Star wie Jack Vance nicht verdient schämt euch für diese Lesung kann man dafür auch 0 Sterne geben ?
    Ich kenne fast alle Jack Vance Bücher und dies hier ist vergleichbar mit Herr der Ringe und was mach ihr daraus OHJE
