Bear branches out into fantasy and does it reasonably well, if not exactly enlighteningly. His portrayal of fairies ("Sidhe") and their conflicts with humans is different and certainly avoids any sentimentalism. The plot, after a fairly slow and rather bleak start, moves along well. There are some nice ideas of the world-building kind but few of the characters are developed much. A nice read, but not one which will add much to the sum of human understanding. January 2021. ( )

Read the first quarter and gave up. World building was good, but it was a dark and tense world, and I never grew to care about the characters ( )

It's hard to scare me. It's really, REALLY, hard. This book did it. It may be that there's just enough real science in it to make me believe, and it's been a lot of years since I read it. Still, I keep very few books, and I've kept both of these.

The hotel in the book (I'm pretty sure it was this one, and not the sequel/continuation) existed, and I often had to drive by it. It was towards the end of Sunset Boulevard, near the top of the hill, and just disreputable enough that it fit the description.

The hotel was rescued just as the second book had been completed, and published.

These two books are an amazing work. I don't think they're for everyone (witness the reviews, and the ratings), but I found them (and find them) spell binding. ( )

A version of the standard fantasy theme of what happens to a 'normal' Earth human when he discovers the ability to slip into a world where magic works, and where he is a wizard of sorts. Fairly interesting, with some unique ideas. ( )

A slow but compelling start to a very complex fantasy series: This is the 1st book of a 2 book series. The last is The Serpent Mage. Both books have also been combined as another title, "Songs of Earth & Power." My detailed rating would be 4.1 for this book. The essential story of this book is very simple. The main character (Michael) is forcibly drafted by the Elves (Sidhe) to learn magic. It's a traumatic experience. But that's not the strength of the book. Bear generally writes fairly hard SF. The magic here has some interesting physics to it! But the best thing is the history. Bear provides a detailed history starting at the beginning of time. Not exactly with quarks either. This extremely complex history of the 5 sentient races on Earth drives the whole story, and you learn that history a piece at a time through the two books. Why is Michael drafted by the elves? You find out by the middle of the second book. This first book would not be satisfying all by itself. You need the second also. If you like friendly elves, this is not the series for you. Most of the elves here are cold, cruel, and callous. Why? That's part of the history!
