Editorial Reviews

From the Author

A word about Gisel's journey disguise in this story. It is morethan simply hiding that she is a is the guise of anassassin and a swashbuckler...and if you have read the two earliernovels, Arrival and Masquerade, you will know who she learned thepersona from. It always worked for it works for her aswell.

The dungeon in the last part of the story is called a BottleDungeon, for obvious reasons. I just wanted to remark that I was onceinside one, and it made such a impact that I had to write one intoone of my stories. I wasn't let down on a rope because at some time ahole had been knocked into the castle wall to open it. I did lookdown from inside the guardroom on the top of the wall first. It heldfour of the dungeons if I remember correctly and when I saw one wasaccessible I had to go and find it.

It was in a ruined castle on the Rhine, on the west bank...but Iam not sure which ruin. It may have been at Oberwesel orBacharach...which would make it Schonburg or Castle Stehlech. Itmight have been Burg Rheinfels, but I think that puts it too farnorth. The ruin was completely empty and without a admission gate oreven a guide. I could roam about to my heart's content...this wasprobably in 1966...I doubt it is as free from turnstiles today.

From the Inside Flap

Themap accompanying this novel is too big for the file. I offer alocation comparison between Gaia and our world here instead.

LingdonCity, where the story begins is London. The sea journey takes thecharacters from the Thames, past Frendland (the Low Countries) toBrehafen (aka Bremerhaven). From there they navigate their waythrough the Moonwald (a much enlarged and wilder Lüneberger Heide)toward Novrehan (aka Frankfurt am Oder) and down the Lubitz River toLubitz (which is at an extended mouth of the river into the BalticSea off the Stettiner Haff). Other places mentioned are Makberg (akaHamburg), Leki (which is on the coast near Rostok), Blackrock Ford(which is on the Oder near Eberswalde, not that there is a ford thereon our Earth) and Abersholm (which is on the Makberg River, aka theElbe, near Wittenberge). The Iskander's main industrial complex is inTarnland, which is Sweden; the location of Iskander Control is inTarnland at Bergrund north west of Stadholm (aka Stockholm).

Placesmentioned but not visited include Wasbia which is North Germany, andUpper Wasbia that includes the Czech Republic and South Germany;Whonmark, which is Denmark and Norway; the Inland Sea which is theBaltic Sea; and Thalia, which comprises all of the Baltic Republics.Really off the map are Scathia, which is equivalent to Ghengis Khan'sMongolian Empire (which stretches to Poland here); the Kosmoneos,which is the 'New World'; and the "Forbidden Island" where theEmperor Zarl lives (that I've never pinned down but could be Malta orCrete.)
