From the Inside Flap

Nathan Brazil had been the guardian of the Well of Souls, where the Well World's master control lay. But now the universe faced a threat more grave than mere destruction: An unnamed and utterly alien entity had somehow been released from its ancient prison and was bent on the corruption of the Well World itself. If successful, it would cause chaos beyond mortal understanding....

Format: Mass Market Paperback
When I think of science fiction/fantasy there is one author and series that comes to mind. Jack L. Chalker and the Well of Souls were the beginning of my infatuation with science fiction. When I read that first book as a teenager almost 20 years ago, little did I know the hours and hours of enjoyment that I would have. This series has been in my collection since that time, and with each re-reading it grows more enjoyable. The wonderful plot twists, the mystery, the fabulously rich description and characters grabs your imagination and draws you into a very unusual world filled with sorcery, science and awe. A must read for anyone who wants to get lost in a book of riches of the imagination

I read the original pentology in high school, and had fond memories of it. More than fond, really: part of the personal archive. I recently reread it and, you know? It was pretty good! The first book (Midnight at the Well of Souls) remains a classic rollicking fine adventure. The other two pairs are pretty good, maybe a bit unsubtle in some ways, but heck I'm able to channel my inner fourteen-year-old and still enjoy em. (My girlfriend, on the other hand, liked the first one, couldn't finish the second.)

I'm digging the series, and I want more, more! So I ordered all the books in The Watchers Of The Well. Big mistake.

The trilogy is fifteen hundred pages long, but easily has enough action to fill four or five very very short stories. Endless endless pages of description of nothing, just nothing. Mavra gets turned into a creature, everyone's trying to get to the Avenue. Nothing ever happens!

If you really just can't get enough, I recommend this: just skip to the third book, Gods of the Well of Souls. Seriously. It's tedious all by itself, and recounts endlessly the events of the first two, but at least you can get a conclusion in just one book.

Format: Paperback
Jack L. Chalker's return to the Well World universe was much anticipated, and in the end pretty good. This new trilogy, Watchers at the Well, starts with Echoes of the Well of Souls, continues with Shadow of the Well of Souls, and concludes with Gods of the Well of Souls.

Long locked away in an ancient prison, a completely alien force found a chink in its prison cell the last time Nathan Brazil, the immortal keeper of the Well World where control of the universe lies, reset the universe. Now it wants out so it can have free reign of the universe and control of the Well World itself.

Alerted to the danger at hand, the Well World summons Nathan Brazil and Mavra Chang, his new co-Keeper of the Well, but will they answer the call? Brazil is weary, very weary; keeping watch over the universe for all eternity has taken its toll on him and his is just too tired to deal with it anymore. And Chang, who is now estranged from Brazil, never wanted the responsibility that forced upon her.

As the threat to the safety of the universe and the Well World grows and Brazil and Chang ignore the call, the alien entity grows stronger; and, the computer at the heart of the Well World must stop at nothing to get the undivided attention of its keepers before it is too late!

If you loved the original Well World series (and who wouldn't?!?), you will want to read this series; if you haven't, then stop and read it immediately. Then pick up this second series and devour it as well.

A Guide to my Book Rating System:

1 star = The wood pulp would have been better utilized as toilet paper.
2 stars = Don't bother, clean your bathroom instead.
3 stars = Wasn't a waste of time, but it was time wasted.
4 stars = Good book, but not life altering.
5 stars = This book changed my world in at least some small way.

Format: Paperback
Simply put, this entire series is terrible. The writing is some of the poorest I've ever forced myself to plod through: endless lecturing, speechifying, exposition dumps in both prose and dialogue, and a plot ripped-off from his previous, much better books. Seriously, the guys is obsessed with transformations, physical, mental, and sexual. And he does it again here, putting each of his characters through multiple transformations. But it's all been done before in his previous works and is simply done here for the lack of anything better.

It's been said in another review from 2008: simply skip to the final novel, if you really want to read something of the Well World, and count yourself lucky you didn't waste any more of your life on this dreadful hack-job.
