God I love these stories. I love how Tar writes, it is so beautiful, she uses language in a way that makes me very envious of her skill. These books stay with you long after your finished reading and can be read and re-read numerous times and you still get sucked into the story and lose yourself in it. The themes are always love but she also looks at gender and sexuality and the nature of good and evil and how it can look incredibly black and white in one moment and then you turn around and the [...]

It's best to read this one more than once, and slowly--characters have a habit of replying to what's implied as often as what is said, and the plot itself is baroque but rewarding. I especially loved seeing the representation of racial & sexual minorities in speculative fiction, though the times have moved on (somewhat) since this was first written.

2013 reread. This was my favorite of the original trilogy when I first read it, and that hasn't changed. I didn't think the big plot twist was worked out well, and that hasn't changed, either. (view spoiler)[The problem isn't that Sarevadin's sex change is WTF random, the problem is that he immediately identifies as she, she is heterosexual (when male Sarevadin claimed not to be very attracted to Hirel physically), and that she immediately becomes more indecisive and passive than she was. Now th [...]

Tarr is an acquired taste. She write more in prose style than straight forward dialog. It's sometimes hard to follow the story but worth the beauty of the words. She also sees to have a good metaphysical grasp of what magic might encompass to preform and describes it in believable terms. This is an older series of hers and I had to buy them used to even get to read them.

Don't go on to 4, 5, and 6. They just ruin it. This trilogy has the BEST book ending I've ever reading. It was a total surprise. There's magic, too.

This was actually a re-read; I believe I first read it in 1994 or 1995. I really liked it then, but I'm not quite sure what I think about it now.
