One of the most renowned and respected literary artists in the field of science fiction, Robert Silverberg transports us once again to a spectacular, deftly conceived world in transition and propels us on a remarkable odyssey of survival and self-discovery.

The Folk were first to arrive on this faraway planet, pushing aside the docile, intelligent aboriginal races they encountered. The Masters followed to subjugate the careless, complacent fellow humans who preceded them here.

Born to take over the reins of House Keilloran, Joseph Master Keilloran awakens one night in the Great House of distant relatives to the thunder of battle. Joseph escapes, but he is stranded and alone 10,000 miles from his home. Damned by his birth and class, surrounded by enemies who would kill him if they found him, Joseph must now embark on a journey of unimaginable distance toward a home that may already be in ruin.

    " A little long-winded. I read a library copy, and on the comment card one person had noted it would have been a great short story. I agree. "

    " Sort of another version of "Lord Valentine"--young Joseph makes a very long journey across the continent in the midst of a rebellion. He meets several different peoples along the way, gaining insights to their societies and to himself. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeff Crosby | 11/21/2011

    " Has the feel and pacing of a YA title but is not. Young Joseph finds himself running for his life when the family he is visiting is slaughtered. On his journey to reach his home, he goes through a process of personal discovery. Credible Silverberg novel, but not his best. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristin | 11/17/2011

    " Really a very good story with a very interesting main character. I liked the way he was slowly changed through his experiences, it was quite believable. "

    " Entertaining coming-of-age story. Exciting enough to keep my interest, and relaxing enough to be a pleasant read on a summer afternoon. "
