Thieves’ World, Book 8: Soul of the City (1986) edited by Robert Asprin and Lynn Abbey

This is, hands down, my least favorite Thieves’ Word book.

Dramatis Personae by Lynn Abbey
Power Play by Janet Morris
Dagger in the Mind by C.J. Cherryh
Children of All Ages by Lynn Abbey
Death in the Meadow by C.J. Cherryh
The Small Powers that Endure by Lynn Abbey
Pillar of Fire by Janet Morris

It takes an entire book to do it, but they finally resolve the problem of Roxane, my (hands down) least favorite characters. That’s pretty much my only positive for this book.

The city has fallen to pieces, and before anything else can be done, they have to deal with the Nisibisi witch and her globe of power.

And they do, but at a cost to some of my more beloved characters, including Ilyra, who appears only to have terrible things happen to her.

But, as I said, it resolves this major problem, so you have to slog through it to move on.
Rating: 5/10
