McClung’s world building, and his humorous, flawed yet unapologetic characters remind of the writings of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld novels and, even more so, Lois McMasters Bujold’s Penric —and, yes, Miles Vorkosigan. Penric is also a priest although he is not afflicted with bad knees, arthritis, bladder problems and other maladies of the elder High Priest Lhiewyn of The Last God. I know that comparison to Pratchett and Bujold would place McClung In high company indeed, but McClung could even now sit at the same table as those two. His characters are not copies of other characters I have encountered though.
While the author has written a stand-alone book in The Last God, and I agree it could be enjoyed by those who have not read the Amra Thetys books, but I also feel my enjoyment was increased many fold by having read them. The fourth book in the Thetys series especially serves as background to better understand some of the references in this book. I would advise readers to buy them now; like the paintings of many artists the price of McClung’s books may increase as his readership expands.
Apart from that I loved it. And it not only shortened the waiting time for Amra Thetys book 5, no, it added even more waiting time to the heap, because now I’m more than curious what further adventures are lying in wait for the cranky old priest and his acolyte. Because they will attract lots of trouble, no doubt about it.
Thanks Michael, keep on writing lots of words in the correct order!
The world of Ames Thetys is a world of minor gods, demons, and mages, and one that is teetering on rebirth.
This collection of stories centered on a formally minor character are entertaining and add nicely to that world. I won’t hesitate to pick up the next book.
Cannot wait for the next novel.
