  • The Niven Pournelle writing style takes some getting used to after a time away I think this book sits better if you are at least passingly familiar with the world of the Warlock, and with the book immediately prior to this, The Burning City.Part Two of Three for TBR 56 in the TBR Clean Up Challenge.


  • Burning Tower picks up a year after Burning City concludes, Yangin Atep is myth, the Greenroad is open, and no one knows how Tep s Town will survive exposure to the outside world The focus of the book is on the budding romance between Sandry, the finest young Lord of his generation, and Burning Tower, the youngest of Whandall Feathersnake s children Whereas in Whandall s story, we saw an entire lifetime in one book, Burning Tower slows down time so that we can see Sandry and Tower begin to love [...]


  • Pournelle and Niven are capable of great things of this there is no doubt Mote in God s Eye is just a terrific book Burning Tower is not Mote, but it s not dreck either It s a good book with an interesting premise Set in the pre history of North America, at a time when magic manna had not yet faded and some gods still clung to existence, Burning Tower tells the story of a civilization, the Lords, who are at once confronting the return of magic to their lands even as magic is slowly leaving the r [...]


  • I wish Niven would return to Known Space This universe is interesting, but not compelling.It took me a couple of months to get through this one I set it down and went on to read other books, and returned to it out of a feeling of duty.As with all of the collaborations of Niven and Pournelle, it had a good plot and engaging characters I simply do not care for this universe It seems to work better for short stories than for novels Perhaps I would have enjoyed it if I knew about Aztec culture, bu [...]


  • Feels like a formula fantasy book written to be one of many in a series You know the style But, you never loose the feel of a Niven Pournelle novel either There s attention to detail in lots of areas most authours ignore, and some typical details breezed right past If you enjoy their style, you ll enjoy the book I do wish they could have set up the climax better they ended up reducing the IQ of the entire cast by about 50 points temporarily to pull it off, the ones they didn t just drug for the [...]


  • Keep moving, moving, moving, though they re disapprovingNot as good as Burning City And if you haven t read Burning City you will probably be lost here.This story is about Whandall and Williow s daughter, Burning Tower, and Lord Sandry of the Lordshills And a whole bunch of terror birds Results ok Not one of the authors best.


  • Usual Niven Pournelle offering, solidly written, really no new ideas, and some social Darwinism subtext that is getting a little boring in their writing Solid enough read, eve3n if you haven t read the first one.


  • As interesting as the previous book, but maybe not as good I m not much into fantasy, but I enjoyed this story Interesting characters and story If you liked the previous one The Burning city you ll enjoy this one as well.
