Description

Colene and Darius escape to another reality and continue on their way, with luck, across the five modes to Darius' homeworld, Hlahatar. There he is Cyng. Colene thinks of him as King of Laughter, an echo of the love she bears him - and of Darius' ability to drain the emotion from a person.show more

Review Text

Third of Anthony's Mode series (Fractal Mode, 1992) - a reality-hopping adventure combined with advice on personal growth, with an overly complicated premise but solidly agreeable character interactions. Of the cast - currently: neglected, young-teen rape victim Colene; Darius the magical king of another reality; Seqiro the telepathic horse; and beautiful, sexy, magical free-spirit Nona - one major addition is made per book (here, it's Burgess, an indescribable creature from a set of alternate Earths where vertebrates never evolved) while another drops out (Seqiro, after victory in a magical/telepathic duel with a rival). Though this episode lacks firm direction and a strong plot, the Modes notion continues to be one of Anthony's more thoughtful, hard-working, and substantial series. (Kirkus Reviews)show more
