Still, oos wasn’t all bad. View all 3 comments. In the Demon Prince no An assassin with a philosophical bent of mind seeks revenge on five arch-criminals who killed his parents.
Gersen’s obsession with tracking down and killing Falushe and his involvement with poisons, death and shady characters creates difficulties with his new romantic relationship with Alusz.
Teehalt is hesitant to report his discovery to his employer, Attel Malagate, who owns the spaceship because Malagate is pos known criminal and Teehalt is fearful of what Malagate might do with the newly discovered virgin planet.
I highly highly recommend this for any newbie sci fi reader or anyone who wants to be reminded of why this genre is so darn good. Occasionally a SF author will begin his chapters with a short quote from a made-up future book. And also again, the vast and awe-some worlds evoked. He is now on the trail of Malagate, one of the five star kings who killed his parents and destroyed the colony he lived in. It remains my favorite of the first three books of the series.
The Star King was first released in and as a serial in Galaxy magazine. I can’t really say too much bad about it except that similar plot solution devices were utilized throughout all 3 tales.
Loss time he is after Viole Falushe. As ever and very strongly in the Demon Princes novelsit is his mastery of imagery, his distinctly lush yet never purple prose, and his way of nonchalantly dropping a heart-breakingly beautiful turn of phrase.
Almost every wild adventure and activity is an attempt by Gersen to get closer to Kokor Hekkus so he can kill him for revenge.
The Palace of Love: While I like Kirth Gersen’s adventure’s and the worlds he visits, the pacing is what keeps me from being gung-ho about reading the next two books. Jack Vance is another One thing that has always bothered me about science fiction as literary genre is that so very few of its authors seem to have any awareness of their medium, i. You will learn patience and resource, the ability of your hands and your mind.
The Demon Princes, Volume One: The Star King, The Killing Machine, The Palace of Love
It needs to be read first. May 29, Stephen Fielder rated it really liked it. And on that level, these three novels are completely successful. Gersen is a ultra-capable protagonist. Absolutely my favorite Jack Vance Series of All times.
Of course Gersen also wrote this initial, highly critical article that he shares with Falushe. Kirth Gersen carries in his pocket a slip of paper with a list of five names javk on it.
If he does agree, how can Gersen work around the extensive security measures that protect Falushe? I thought the Star King moved slowly but this one took the taco.
The Demon Princes, Volume One: The Star King, The Killing Machine, The Palace of Love by Jack Vance
I also thought the dialog was engaging and lively. This is the second time I’ve read The Palace of Love and I liked it better the second time, changing my earlier rating of a 3 now to a 4.
Want to Read saving…. After a slow start, the story of Kirth Gersen and an unknown antagonist named Malegate the Woe was very engaging and delightfully illuminating.
Aug 14, Amy rated it it was ok. Deemonio, the very interesting studies of human nature and self-serving-ness.
This is an omnibus that compiles the first three of Jack Vance’s five novels in his Demon Princes series, and the author’s powers are on full display. This is Beyond; you will find that your work is never done—so therefore you may never know life of peace.
Jan 10, Loe Schwent rated it it was ok Shelves: Truth, which is to say, the reflection of life, is beautiful.
I started with his influential Dying Earth and Lyonesse series, but it took me a while to try his sci-fi works. An assassin dfmonio a philosophical bent of mind seeks revenge on five arch-criminals who killed his parents. Jack Vance makes reading a page revenge tale as exciting as reading the dictionary. Some of the appeal is the slow unraveling of why the criminal became that way. Gersen hopes to interview him for leads to track Falushe down.
Now he is very wealthy slave owner and is the absolute dictator on his own planet where all residents must give him their first born child to enslave or use as he likes.
He roams the universe, searching the endless galaxies of space, hunting down the Demon Princes and exacting his revenge Kirth Gersen carries in his pocket a slip of paper with a list of five names written on it. Gersen targets the next name on his list, an immortal shapeshifter named Kokor Hekkus. Sarkovy is a planet known for its many natural botanical poisons and its populace of highly skilled poison masters who offer their demonioo for hire and readily sell very lethal poisons at a price set by the poisoners’ guild.
One, this edition is riddled with typos. Gersen himself is kidnapped and while being confined he learns to make counterfeit money.
Thanks for telling us about the problem. And the Demon Princes in no ways disappoints. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. However, reading Vance is mostly about his style and the environments that he creates. I loved reading about deminio strange places and planets that were described in detail along with the unusual and denonio alien creatures.
This is no small feat and he should be given more of his due.
