There's a lot of dreams and prophecies and visions of things that haven't happened yet in the novel, or happened earlier, and reality as a whole seems very malleable. It's confusing. Maybe that's the point. I don't know. So I liked it, but not as much as the first book -- the first book was a little easier to follow -- and I will still read the third one, because why not? I still think a series about Vergil the magician is a nifty idea, so I'm still reading.

But I just wish there was a little more clarity here. Feb 20, Fantasy Literature rated it it was ok. Jan 17, Scott rated it it was amazing. Book 2 in the Virgil series. Avram Davidson's Virgil series had all the potential of Zelazny's Amber series, Or Steven Brust's Vlad series, in my opinion, but never really got traction. Virgil seems like a scientist, or a scholar, until you see his magical abilities. And, as he's willing to explore and experience different things, sometimes the descriptions are of altered states, which make it hard to follow, but well worth the trip.

If only he'd lived long enough to write more!

I didn't discove Book 2 in the Virgil series. I didn't discover him until after his death, and have spent time in used bookstores back when that was the way to find used books! Apr 12, egelantier rated it liked it Shelves: sf-f , male-protagonist.

Nov 14, Bruce rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: SF fans and those who love language. Davidson is acclaimed mainly as a short story writer, but he could excel at longer fiction, too. This is my favorite by him of what I've read.

Publisher's Summary

Wonderful and unique use of language, a splendidly realized setting, and a good story. Apr 30, Caleb Wilson rated it really liked it. Great odd fantasy. Davidson writes of Vergil using the Medieval impression of him, as a magus more than a poet.

In fact Davidson's Rome actually the land around it is all seen through the misunderstandings of the Medieval period, though all written in his own unmistakeable voice. Good but drifts and can get too languid. Aug 28, Brendan McAuliffe rated it it was ok.

Vergil Magus

Schuyler Miller, Analog , June A stilted, pretentious story which loses its charm long before the unsurprising conclusion. An ironic and beautifully crafted tale. Schuyler Miller, Analog , March Gale, Galaxy , June The plot is inane, the prose irritatingly literary, and the ending uninspired. A study in nauseating self-centeredness. Less than impressive.

An amusing and superbly characterized tale.
