What I did not like and became bored with was all the details in describing things specific to the Priest Kings. Those details were dry and hard to follow so yes, I did skip over those parts rather quickly.
This book had promise. The Priest-Kings were compelling antagonists, and the descriptions of their culture and physiognomy were interesting. Alas, about 60% of the way through the book, Norman once again descends into his strange misogynist rants, going so far as to even suggest that women were compelled, evolutionarily to submit to men. (But, really, isn't that why people read his stuff?) I chose to interpret this as written with tongue firmly in cheek, but who knows. Once that section of the book was passed, the plot became interesting again. The best of the series so far.
In the third book of the Gorean Saga, Tarl Cabot finally travels to the Sardar Mountains to meet the priest-kings. The unveiling of the mystery behind them is at the center of this novel. It is revealed to the reader whether the priest-kings are using magic or are using advanced technology. Other mysteries are also unveiled.
This book was climactic to me even though it's not even close to being the last book in the series. It was a big deal for me to finally find out what the priest-kings were like. The first two books were fantasy novels that took place on another planet and had no magic. This book however is almost a sci-fi novel. It has some romance but as it always is like on the planet Gor, the woman Tarl meets is not entirely trustworthy.
