Top Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
After reading the seventh and last story in the series revolving around the dragon Griaule I can't help but be a bit disappointed with this tale. It recounts the life of a medical student turned businessman following his discovery of the psychotropic effects of Griaule's blood. A lot of things happen during his life: the formation of a drug empire, shady political dealings with the council of Teocinte, several assassination attempts, but somehow the story avoids most of the action and detail and wanders off into a completely different direction whenever an intriguing event takes place, dropping the potential of an exciting tale time and again as the protagonist removes himself from the action (voluntarily or not): storylines are just as quickly dropped as they are developed.

Comparing this one with the stories collected in 'The Dragon Griaule' I found this tale one of the weakest. (I think the best ones are The Father of Stones and The Skull.)

Another disappointment was the large number of typos. I don't think I've ever read any other book with so many of them.

Lucius Shepard passed away in 2014 so this might be his last published original work. It is a fine addition to his Dragon Griaule series. In fact it starts at the time of the first story and carries on to overlap the later stories of the series - it provides spoilers for that series. So read the collection of the other stories 'The Dragon Griaule' first.

I've been a fan of Shepherd's Dragon Griaule stories for decades, and this final tale is a brilliant finale to the series.
