-Night's Master- kicks off the Flat Earth series, about a richly imagined, glittering, world of cruel and proud daemons. What ultimately carries off the story of Azhrarn is Tanith Lee's strong prose style. You can tell that she must have been the victim of a classical education.
In this book we meet the Prince of Demons, Azhrarn, who plots and schemes to his own dark ends. He is an evil, selfish antagonist, and yet Sivesh, his adopted son is the 'good guy', falls prey to his evilness and in the end...
The book is written like a myth, with strange and wonderful things like silver collars woven of tears, and demon horses that ride the night...
The prose in this tale is so rich it may be fattening. It is a sensuous pleasure to read aloud.
Lee's fantasies tend to be rich in mood, usually somber and exotic mood, but she's no one-trick pony: her characters are deep and full-fleshed, and her plots Byzantine (sometimes more or less literally) amd her prose suitably rich without ever being purple.
Finally, none of her work is cookie-cutter: you will not have been to the lands of the Flat Earth before, or anything like them, in anyone else's fat fantasy. Read: enjoy.

She could (and did) much better.
This book was quite depressing (at least to me) and unpleasant. Read more
This is an easy to read fantasy book. It reads more like something written by Homer. Tanith Lee is very creative and keeps you interested.Published on April 9, 2013 by John F. Watson
