    I am giving this short story collection from Tanith Lee 5 stars This is the last book in the Tales from Flat Earth series a must read for any fantasy fanThis collection of short stories soars reaching the heights I have come to expect from Tanith Lee Rich and vivid imagery written in a romantic prose that verges on the dreamlike Tanith Lee's world's are brimming with imagination beauty and treacherous danger As always the writing is gorgeous enriching the fairy tale style of the stories presented hereTanith lee is a hopeless romantic romance is a theme that runs through out the book and in fact the Tales from Flat Earth series as a whole Love being the unifying common denominator among all the beings of flat earth from Demon kind to the Lord's of Darkness and mortals alikeThe flat earth is a fabulous fictitious world of legends and myths Each story in this collection reads like a fable mortals are meer pawns in the games of the super powered Lords of Darkness and Demons of the flat earth The saving grace and importance of mortality is explored again in the last story of the collectionI can't recommend this book enough for anyone who enjoys fantastic fiction A colourful cast of Magicians seductive and treacherous demons anthropomorphic representations of concepts like Madness magical winged horses and an enchanting world set on the moon with giant bears; what can you ask for? You will not be disappointed

    The Basics Night’s Sorceries serves as a companion novel to the previous volume in the series Delirium’s Mistress While the events of Azhriaz’s story are unfolding she and the other players are inadvertently affecting the human lives that stray too close These are their storiesMy ThoughtsAt first I wasn’t sure how to feel about the fact that this story is not a continuation of the Tales of the Flat Earth so much as an expansion upon the last book Yet like most of Lee’s books it endears itself so uickly that I couldn’t be annoyed by that for long at all Each of these tales has a different tone to it some light and fluffy others dark and cynical Each one brings something fresh to the tableOne of my favorites was “Children of the Night” wherein a young woman is betrothed to an evil lord That sounds pretty straightforward but the story is anything but It has a decidedly Midsummer Night’s Dream feel to it with a lot of whimsy and humor In the same vein as that play dark and powerful creatures are about their business and humans get caught in the crossfireThe hardest part of reviewing a book at the end of the series is my fear of spoiling someone into not wanting to read it at all That would especially be a shame with a series as amazing as this one is Having said that in the spirit of not giving away too much about the ending the last story a substantially long one does turn out to be a continuation It’s beautifully done and as well crafted as I could hope A wonderful note to end on though I am hopeful that this won’t be the last we see of this seriesFinal Rating55

    Tanith Lee you’ve done it again After what seemed to me to be a disastrous fourth book my favorite fantasy author has gone back to form and expectedly delivered a fantastic set of stories of myth and magic The stories in this collection take place during the events of Delirium’s Mistress One way to think about this collection is as being side stories that expand on the events of Delirium’s Mistress and that help to fully explain things better and that in the very end advances the story between Azhriaz and Chuz into a nicely resolved conclusion that brings the series full circle and that was satisfying I admit that I didn’t really understand Delirium’s Mistress so I might have to go back and re read that one now that this book has better informed my understanding of events In fact I’m going to have to go back and re read the entire series at some point Then that way maybe I’ll catch on better to some of the underlying themes that thread through the entire series that I may not have really caught on the first time around After this read the Flat Earth series has officially cemented itself as being an all time favorite series

    This book contains seven stories and all of them are somehow connected to Delirium's Mistress There are dark comedies and fairy tales with unexpected twists which are able to profile the life of SovazAzhriazAtmeh from the viewpoint of different bystanders The last two stories Game Players and The Daughter of the Magician relate what happend to Atmeh after the end of previous book and the ending is so lovely and delightful Besides there is also a short story about Azhrarn an important character who appears in all five books in the series Black as a Rose is perhaps the darkest story in this book and also my favorite


  5. says:

    This series is one of my all time favorite fantasy series but it's been probably 10 years since I read the original trilogy This one didn't blow me away like those books but it had the same fantastical emo gothic fairy tale feeling Tanith Lee is often hit or miss with me I've read many short stories from her that bored me to tears but I liked ALL the stories in this collection so I definitely recommend it especially if you've read the other books and you like dark fantastic fiction

    Unimpressed Tanith writes this book merely to complete a five book series The stories are fun to read but they are nothing too special or unexpected by her


  7. says:

    This fifth volume which concludes the series consists of shorter works set in the time of the previous book and sometimes featuring characters from that book such as Azhriaz daughter of the demon Lord of Night Love is a main theme as before and in the last one which ties up with a previous tale in the book concerning a gift made to Azhriaz when she was living as a self made goddess we learn what happens to her soul in her next incarnationI must admit after finding that previous volumes 'dragged' I did skim read this and so only fully read about three of the stories I enjoyed what I read but didn't feel compelled to spend time to read all of it so am awarding it a 3 star satisfactory rating


  8. says:

    Incidental tales to the grander ones of earlier books in the series In the night by the side of a crackling fireplace Lee whispers into your ear rich heady and often hedonistic stories that seem slightly familiar and might offer lessons in life or might be there simply to entertain which they certainly do Dunsany's in there Clark Ashton Smith is and there's a smattering of Howard and Vance A good end to the Flat Earth series


  9. says:

    Although this volume is perhaps the weakest of the 5 published in the Flat Earth series the consistent flavor of the writing the energy of the phantasmagorical imagery and the lovely cyclical ending keep it consistent with the brilliance of the rest of the series

    Finished this a while ago but forgot to update goodreads Tanith Lee is a gift to mankind or at least to fiction
