In this final volume of the Lens of the World trilogy in the US named Belly of the Wolf for reasons explained below, but for some reason renamed as Winter of the Wolf in the UK we have jumped ahead about twenty five years after volume two A shame rather, as I felt there were a lotfascinating stories that could have been told about these characters, instead of which my favourite in the series has been dead for four years when the story starts There is a slight continuity glitch, a In this final volume of the Lens of the World trilogy in the US named Belly of the Wolf for reasons explained below, but for some reason renamed as Winter of the Wolf in the UK we have jumped ahead about twenty five years after volume two A shame rather, as I felt there were a lotfascinating stories that could have been told about these characters, instead of which my favourite in the series has been dead for four years when the story starts There is a slight continuity glitch, as despite the age of Nazuret, the narrator, being statedthan once as fifty five and he did state that he and King Rudof were about thirty in book 2 he has a twenty eight year old daughter who wasn t even conceived at the time of book 2.Unlike the first two volumes, this is not told in a epistolary style Nazuret and his daughter Nahvah have set up home in a small country far from the scenes of his youthful escapades but danger follows him once again when a powerful old friend is apparently murdered When they take ship to try to return to the land where Nazuret grew up, having heard that a rebellion has started with him as the excuse a man called Jeram had unofficially published Nazuret s letters to Rudof which form the content of volume one of the series and called it The Belly of the Wolf after the meditation technique he was taught by his mentor A whole cult has now grown up who practice this technique and it seems, take it further as at least one of them can project a kind of astral body of himself as is seen later in the story War is brewing again, including civil war against the rebels, and Nazuret is drawn into politics despite himself in order to try to prevent it En route they meet a rather odd duke who is an artist but also has a reputation for duelling and killing people for the fun of it, and are repeatedly in danger.I enjoyed the story but again not as much as volume one of the series Apart from the almost lack of Arlin and total lack of Rudof, there was a lotmystical strangeness dead people such as Nazuret s old mentor Powl appearing, astral projection, and a sea serpent which appears to Nazuret while on a sea voyage, seems likely to be significant certainly the cover on the version I read indicates that but then goes away again and is just a red herring, no pun intended Also I couldn t warm to the character of his daughter So the rating for this islike a 3.5 stars which I have rounded up to 4 This is my favorite of the Lens of the World series Unfortunately it s also the last one sigh It s my third time reading it, and I m taking it to the county fair next week the whole series so someone else can enjoy it. I didn t remember hardly any of this third book in the series When I got to the end of the series I realized that I had a made up memory of Nazhuret being captured by the Naiish and getting to know their culture inside out Wonder where that came from Realized that the Zaquosh word for nobility is paistye hut crusher which sounds like the word the Khaleesi uses for master when she is busy freeing the slaves of Meereen to join her army season 4 Freaky Mostly long journeys on horseback an I didn t remember hardly any of this third book in the series When I got to the end of the series I realized that I had a made up memory of Nazhuret being captured by the Naiish and getting to know their culture inside out Wonder where that came from Realized that the Zaquosh word for nobility is paistye hut crusher which sounds like the word the Khaleesi uses for master when she is busy freeing the slaves of Meereen to join her army season 4 Freaky Mostly long journeys on horseback and an unconsummated later life romance It seems like it will be consummated but it s not on the page I was very charmed by this the first time I read the book This time I thought old Dinaos was a bit much The resentment Nazhuret feels toward the creator of the spiritual teaching base on his own writings is very funny This completes the Lens of the World series and does so wonderfully The first time I read the book I was startled by the gap between it and book two, twenty five years or so, long enough for many favorite characters of the series to have died But that s exactly what makes this series remarkable, that we get a chance to see the changing of the world and the next generation assuming their place in it.Nazhuret is a wonderful character, one of the few Taoist heroes in Western fiction The author This completes the Lens of the World series and does so wonderfully The first time I read the book I was startled by the gap between it and book two, twenty five years or so, long enough for many favorite characters of the series to have died But that s exactly what makes this series remarkable, that we get a chance to see the changing of the world and the next generation assuming their place in it.Nazhuret is a wonderful character, one of the few Taoist heroes in Western fiction The author might call him a Zen hero, or not a hero at all I wouldn t know The setting is a fascinating Renaissance world like and unlike our own, just familiar enough to be easy, strange enough to keep up a steady flow of discoveries.Navvie and Timmet are intriguing and I would love to have stories of them too, but the writer did not yield to temptation there MacAvoy leaves me both satisfied and hungry for , an amazing feat Nazhuret, the reluctant philosopher hero of R A MacAvoy s award winning bestseller Lens of the World, is embarking on his final adventure He must unwillingly end a long period of exile and once again take up the sword in defense of freedom His old friend the King is suddenly and unexpectedly assassinated, leaving the kingdom in chaos Nazhuret interrupts the peace of h
