Majestrum: A Tale of Henghis Hapthorn [ MAJESTRUM: A TALE OF HENGHIS HAPTHORN BY Hughes, Matthew ( Author ) Aug-01-2007
I was going to give this book a 3. The plot gave me a rather 'pale' impression'. It seemed kind of average. On the other hand, there were fascinating details that I liked and I think I liked the language too. The main characters didn't come off as very likeable (not the humans anyway), but at least they're interesting. So is the setting. Especially the setting. I'd definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes Jack Vance's The Dying Earth. As a mix of science fiction and fantasy, it works well. I'm looking forward to finding out more about 'Old Earth' in its 'penultimate age', in the next book about Henghis Hapthorn.
