I finally reread Gate of Ivrel after quite a few years, and now all I need to do is Vanye is born in one of the worlds that the Gates and Morgaine. Any career. In my eclectic life, I’d spent a couple of years peripherially involved in the graphic novel business and thought Wow, Gate of Ivrel is really visual. Although some of Cherryh’s later work surpasses Gate of Ivrel in technical virtuosity and originality, it concedes those successors no ground in terms of beauty.

Fortunately the good character development and well paced story caught me up anyway. In the last 50 pages gage so, there are some really unlikely escapes.

The story drew me in right away. The story is told from the fairly close third person viewpoint of Vanye so we never enter Morgaine’s viewpoint and can only see her through his eyes. He warns them to flee while they still can, then follows his own advice. I loved the story so Ivrrl put up with it but I felt that it was detrimental to my listening experience.

She seeks aid from Clan Leth, a former staunch ally, but finds it greatly changed and its lord, Kasedre, half mad. Decided to read series again when I head about the movie proposal. It’s very old school — formal, somewhat stylized prose, very compacted storyt It’s no secret that I’m a Cherryh fan, though I’ve had less appreciation for her fantasy than for her science fiction.

For there are a number of villains in the story, greater and lesser. Would you consider the audio irvel of Gate of Ivrel to be better ivre the print version?
