    2. The Green Pearl An outstanding sequel that builds upon the events of the first story and take it to new heights Madouc Maintains the high standards of the first two with it s rich narative but perhaps a little too slow paced in the middle while the conclusion feels almost rushed.


    3. This book continues from Lyonesse I Suldrun s Garden It s hard not to read this sequel if you ve read the first book, you d want to know what became of Suldrun s son It is political than the first book politics between kingdoms and between magicians The Princess Madouc is the spanner thrown in the political works In the beginning she is a pawn, yet later she comes into her own power.A Fantasy Masterwork I would agree not many new authors have Jack Vance s high style of storytelling He manages t [...]

    5. Jack Vance is of a sci fi writter then a fantasy writter.Still this book is absolutely fantasy.It takes you into a world of old kingdoms, wizards, goblins, affairs, romance, adventure, making friends and allies, war and new worlds Jack Vance wrote three parts of the Lyonesse series Good books to have on your shelves.


    6. Jack Vance has better command of of the English language and its possibilities than any other author I ve ever known.Of all his books, this series is my favorite 1 Lyonesse2 The Green Pearl3 Madouc




    7. One of the few fantasy books I ve ever read that doesn t buy into the hype It just gets pulled along by the succulent words Vance uses.
