The Dark Design


Rating: 4 stars

The third volume in the Riverworld saga, this book starts interleaving the stories of the characters from the previous two volumes (leaving the final volume to bring them together), adds some new ones, and has some shocking revelations of its own, including the return of death to the Riverworld.

I enjoyed this book, following the slight disappointment of the previous volume I felt this one brought the series back on track, keeping up a good pace even if it felt like some characters got more screen time than others. The mysteries of the Riverworld continue to intrigue both the reader and the characters and even the mysterious stranger who is bringing Richard Francis Burton, Samuel Clemens, Peter Jairus Frigate and the others together is shown to be fallible. I look forward to the final volume and the conclusion of this rather excellent series.
