Sintesi dell'editore

The extraordinary story continues in this magnificent new installment of the bestselling Majipoor Chronicles, begun with Lord Valentine's Castle.

Dark dreams disturb Lord Valentine's sleep, a forewarning of the danger that threatens the peace of Majipoor. The Shapeshifters have set in motion a terrifying plan to regain their stolen world and their allies, the ancient gods rising from their eons-long slumber beneath the oceans of the great planet. Suddenly, Valentine faces the greatest crisis of his reign. Either he must plunge Majipoor into a bloody nightmare of war, plague, and chaos, or surrender his life to the mercy of the vengeful Shapeshifters.

"A virtuoso performance by Silverberg, in which details of natural history become symbolic threads in a colorful tapestry on the themes of maturity, responsibility, and natural process." ( New York Newsday)
"Silverberg has created a big planet, chock-a-block with life..." ( The Washington Post)

Superb!

What made the experience of listening to Valentine Pontifex the most enjoyable?

When I saw there were multiple narrators I was concerned. Well, those concerns quickly went away when I realized why they went with multiple readers. Each chapter focuses on a different part of the story and/or character. Having a different reader for each character or character types was brilliant!

Who was your favorite character and why?

They were all so good and well done I can't chose a favorite.

What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

All four narrators did an outstanding job.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes but couldn't.

Any additional comments?

This is among the best audiobooks I have listened to. The story and narrators made for a wonderful experience journeying to this world of Majipoor.

Perfect completion

This, the 3rd of the original Majipoor trilogy, wraps up the story of Valentine perfectly! Highly recommended.

twists and turns to the very end

The final part, just as thrilling as the rest. An excellent and intriguing plot and a leader in Valentine that could make us all think. there could be a better way, I'm sad to reach the end of the series .
