Book Description

Four worlds that cannot be visited.
Four worlds that must be visited.

Aliens are spying on Earth from one of the four worlds that make up the Warden Diamond. But it is impossible to send agents to any of the four worlds because of unique microscopic symbionts that make it impossible for visitors to leave the Diamond.

Seeking a unique solution, each of the four worlds making up the Diamond is sent a person whose mind has been stripped of everything and who is now controlled by an agent of the Confederacy.

Park Lacoch’s body (stripped of his own mind) is exiled to the hell-world of Charon, one of the Warden Diamond worlds being investigated for alien influences and presence. Can he survive long enough to complete his investigation in this unbearably hot world where strange creatures roam and witchcraft is a normal way of life?

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
i really enjoy chalker but... he really kept reusing the 1st third of the others for the fist third of this. really made it drag. i'm probably going to read the last book but i'm not going to drag through the first part the next time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Four books with interesting viewpoints March 14, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There are four (4) books in the "Lords of the Diamond" series, all of which are not only entertaining, but also have a buried commentary on possible future civilization, penal systems, and the human condition in general. This is the third of the series. As such, while it can be read as a stand-alone, it is much more enjoyable when all four books are read as a series and in order.

Though the series is now 20 years old, and not written in the style of modern science fiction, it is still enjoyable for all age brackets. For those of us who are 'older' fans, the style and content reflect the science fiction we grew up reading. As such, fans of 'cyber punk' and modern themes may not enjoy it, but it is still worthy of reading and as a reflection of how the genre has changed since the original days of "Astounding" and such magazines.

2.0 out of 5 stars Love the books, disappointed in the kindle edition. April 8, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've owned this series of books for a very long time, and recently discovered that my copies are First Edition paper backs. I wanted to read them again but didn't want to risk doing any damage to the books.

I bought the Kindle editions and the first two were perfect, a missed word here or there but nothing that interfered with the reading. Unfortunately Charon Was not as carefully converted to a kindle book.

There are entire sections of text missing, anything from half a word to entire paragraphs, just gone.
