What a wonderful read from an era when Science Fiction and Fantasy were one and the same It read blazingly quick implied than it stated and was the kind of read I long for I will eventually read his other works as this one was such a pleasure. Amazing Books, Ardneh S World Empire Of The East 3 By Fred Saberhagen This Is Very Good And Becomes The Main Topic To Read, The Readers Are Very Takjup And Always Take Inspiration From The Contents Of The Book Ardneh S World Empire Of The East 3 , Essay By Fred Saberhagen Is Now On Our Website And You Can Download It By Register What Are You Waiting For Please Read And Make A Refission For You I enjoyed this A novella holding a mere 176 pages give or take I read it without realizing it was the final book in a trilogy, but regardless I feel like it holds its own much like Man in the Maze by Silverberg, you feel like you are dropped into a larger story whose beginning you don t know However, it doesn t matter you ll be able to follow the story with what background is given to you along the way.I suppose the characters aren t particularly deeply detailed, but very little of the writing is wasted There s an evil overlord, demons, evil and good wizards, and a youth serving fighting against an evil invading empire What background do you need If you enjoyed Zelazny s Changeling republished as the first half of Wizard World or Jack Vance s Dragon World, you will enjoy this book. The third and final volume of the Empire Earth trilogy though, a few years later, Saberhagen added a fourth, tentatively connected novel This one brings it all together nicely and maintains the interest established in book two after the too subdued initial volume The best thing I can say about this is that it s made me want to read the related swords and lost swords novels Not amazing, but pretty good. Utterly fantastic, the ending was amazing This was under the title Changeling Earth when I bought it, many years ago back when cover prices were much lower so I was able to buy the whole trilogy A superbly imagined work from start to finish of the trilogy. Three in One From Empire Of The East Book 3 Not really an enjoyable read I didn t like Saberhagen s writing style I didn t really care what happened to the characters The most exciting and or interesting parts took place in the middle of the story while Ardneh was telling Rolf and Catherine about his conception and the war that followed Not recommended. Stuff I Read Ardneh s World by Fred Saberhagen ReviewThis is the third book of the Empire of the East series, which is the first of the book series set in this work The Sword and Lost Sword series are also set in this world, though considerably farther in the future But this book finally sets up what happened to change the world that we live in now to the one that shows up in the Empire of the East, and it does follow through with the promises that it made earlier Mostly, the book is about the East trying to crush the western forces while a small group of Western warriors fights through to try and contact Ardneh, a powerful ally, and defeat the tyranny of the East.And for that it works quite well Rolf and Chup are both back, working together now for the west Charmian also returns, and is once again the most interesting character of the series, because it is she who really saves the day, who really manages to do things and who cannot escape her own fondness for Chup, who in turn both hates and loves her It s the most complex relationship in the series and the one that gets the most attention Rolf gets his own romantic interest, but I didn t care for that as much It seemed to be that because they couldn t be intimate there was strain, but that seemed a rather tired thing.Ardneh becomes a character, though, and explains what happened, and it s an interesting premise, that the world was turned all magic capable as a defense against nuclear annihilation And that the acts of violence caught in the change Wave became the demons, and that the most powerful was a nuclear bomb caught at the moment of explosion Good stuff that made sense and added to the depth of the world The plot itself was a little weak, though, as the villains made to kill Ardneh even as the former defensive computer used its death to take down the power of the East.As a conclusion to the larger story it was rather satisfying, tying most things up with a nice bow and giving the characters their ends It also sets the stage for the Sword books, especially with Ardneh s warning at the end, a warning that goes unheeded in the Sword books and leads to the troubles there But the book was still good, and I enjoyed it, though again it wasn t as complex as it could have been It was good, though, and a fitting end to the series, and so I m giving it a 7 10.
