Format: Mass Market Paperback
Third book of the stunning Changewinds series, a beautiful blend of the typical fantasy world of swords and monsters, and the somewhat modern world, with guns and plumbing and electric lighting. And it's blended so seamlessly that I often wonder what kind of a world it is, modern or fantasy.
The characters Sam and Charley go through even MORE transformations in this book, their physical states altered in odd ways. The climax was brilliant, showing how the two girls' wishes intertwine and weave together into a result that, on the surface, would seem almost ideal, but behind the scenes, in the opinions and minds of the two heroines, has it's own problems, like any change and tiral of life. Great ending, atypical of many fantasy novels I've read.

_When the Changewinds Blow_ is probably my favorite of the Chalker novels, and overall I tend to like the Changewinds saga better than any of his other series (the Well of Souls possibly excepted). And even this last book shows the clever and realistic feel for politics that made the series so interesting. Unfortunately it gets caught up in the all-too-familiar Chalker flaws-- obsession with body transformations (even to the detriment of the plot), sexual slavery, and the role of women in relation to their body image.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is the third book in a trilogy started by Where The Cangewinds Blow. The first book was thrilling to the point that I chased down the next 2 books for 7 years. The second book was decent it kept the story going. The third was a bit of a let down. The books are conected and one must read all three if they have begun. the Author seems to have lost his original train of thought. In the first book he writes like its a thrilling Sci Fi book and the second book just picks up threads where he left it, but the third while continueing the thread seems to become somewhat like a Fable in that it carries with it a moral. In my opinion the moral should have been left out though it mat speak to some teenage girls.
