Read full description of the books Exile's Gate:Gate-time works differently than world-time -- for Nhi Vanye and Morgaine, mere moments passed between when they rode into the Fires at Azeroth and when they emerged at Morund, but for the rest of us ten years had passed.
This is the final (not concluding, but presumably last) book about Morgaine and Vanye. It's the largest in the series -- in terms of word-count, it's probably double any of the preceding volumes -- and the most complex in terms of the number of POV characters and in terms of the situation on the ground. On the world of Exile's Gate, some qhal still remain and still control the Gates, to a greater or lesser degree, at the behest of a power infinitely older and more dangerous.
We still never get inside Morgaine's head -- all of our experience with her is filtered through other characters' observations, most especially Vanye's. The relationship between Morgaine and Vanye is, as always, one of the chief structural members of the story, and we get to see a glimpse of that relationship from outsiders' perspectives; we also, before the end, do learn somewhat about Morgaine herself.
Myself, I'd be thrilled to see further adventures of Morgaine and Vanye. But if this is the end, I'm well-content, secure in the knowledge that they still ride the Gates, but at a place too far for tales to filter back.
Read information about the authorCurrently resident in Spokane, Washington, C.J. Cherryh has won four Hugos and is one of the best-selling and most critically acclaimed authors in the science fiction and fantasy field. She is the author of more than forty novels. Her hobbies include travel, photography, reef culture, Mariners baseball, and, a late passion, figure skating: she intends to compete in the adult USFSA track. She began with the modest ambition to learn to skate backwards and now is working on jumps. She sketches, occasionally, cooks fairly well, and hates house work; she loves the outdoors, animals wild and tame, is a hobbyist geologist, adores dinosaurs, and has academic specialties in Roman constitutional law and bronze age Greek ethnography. She has written science fiction since she was ten, spent ten years of her life teaching Latin and Ancient History on the high school level, before retiring to full time writing, and now does not have enough hours in the day to pursue all her interests. Her studies include planetary geology, weather systems, and natural and man-made catastrophes, civilizations, and cosmology…in fact, there's very little that doesn't interest her. A loom is gathering dust and needs rethreading, a wooden ship model awaits construction, and the cats demand their own time much more urgently. She works constantly, researches mostly on the internet, and has books stacked up and waiting to be written.
