    I actually uite enjoyed the first half of this book wherein the prince goes mad upon learning of the death of his bride throws himself in to the study of wizardry and commences on the journey in to the underworld to steal his bride back It was exciting and disturbing this vision of the underworld was well described and unsettling a world in which ALL the dead retreat to no matter what god they worshipped in life and no matter what goods they offer to entice the god of the underworld to provide favorThe second half of the book which had the prince now mad living on his own island with his daughter whom he held prisoner fell flat It was boring and seemed to have no purpose What was the drive for these last 60 pages? Where was the story going? Nowhere it seems It felt like an exciting short story that had been extendedNot a recommended book

    Originally posted at FanLitReaders familiar with Darrell Schweitzer probably think of him mostly as someone who writes short stories edits magazines and anthologies and writes books and essays about speculative fiction But he’s written a few novels too The White Isle published in 1989 is one of these though it was originally serialized in the magazine Fantastic in 1980 It tells the story of Prince Evnos of Iankoros who we meet as a boy and follow into madnessThe story is divided into two parts In the first section Prince Evnos is born raised educated married and sent off to war When his wife dies in childbirth he is enraged so he learns to be a wizard and descends into the underworld to get her back In the second part he lives a miserable life on a rocky island with his unhappy daughterAs Darrel Schweitzer reports in a 2003 Read More

    Written in style reminiscent of the first few Earthsea novels although not uite as good as Le Guin It's setting is mythic compared to traditional fantasy stories and the tone is darker At times it felt like it could have been a part of Tanith Lee's Flat Earth series It's the first Schweitzer I've read and while it's not a favorite it does have me interested in his other works
