This review is from: A Game of Universe (Mass Market Paperback)
rich blend of Science Fiction and fantasy. This excellent and entertaining novel never falls into the trap of taking itself too seriously. Here are all the elements of a classic quest story, riches beyond our dreams of avarice, beautiful maidens to be rescued, vile villains to be dispatched (or more likely run away from) and technical wonders galore! The hero Germain is not all powerful, he has numerous flaws and a terrible childhood holding him back. He has to overcome all this to seek one of the most powerful artefacts known to our civilisation, the Holy Grail. Realistically Germain has no chance of achieving his goal but remember 'the journey IS the destination' and Germain's journey is a worthy one. This overlooked gem is good stuff and makes me want to read other books by the author. Its a lot more entertaining than recent Grail Quest novels!
