This was a very Frank Herbert kind of bookNot that one Grandmaster must adopt the style and tone of another but I could most definitely see many similarities between this end of a trilogy book and Herbert s DuneSilverberg s Majipoor like the Dune universe created by Frank Herbert is thousands of years old and the distant almost mythical origins of Old Earth are shrouded in remote collective memory Silverberg s water kings the enormous and mysterious sea dragons are also mindful of Herbert s great sandworms as is the animist theology built around the great beasts There was a scene when a poor communicant delivers a holy artifact to the king a dragon s tooth and that is where I made the connection between the sea dragons and the sandwormsThis is also a very political book Silverberg delves deeply into the protocols and constitutional underpinnings of the Majipoor government as the process of choosing candidates for Coronal amongst the aristocracy and the connections between Pontifex and the other executives within the political structures on Majipoor are explored and made clearFinally and unfortunately this book is like the Dune series in that the farther a reader goes from the source book the stale the story This was still entertaining and I have to admit that I really enjoy the complexity of Silverberg s Majipoor creation but this lacked the originality of the earlier books and somewhat even digressed into melodrama Polynesian Seafaring and Navigation imagination continues Dolpo in the first new hardcover Majipoor novel Riding the Torch in nearly a decade As a preuel to Silverberg's earlier Majipoor novels Sorcerers of Majipoor provides a deep dark vision for the background of the conflict Er ist wieder da in Lord Valentine's Castle and Valentine PontifexTreac.
