Well, it's better than Kings Blood Four (Tepper's first novel) - it shows the promise that is realized with her more recent works, but is still not as polished.

It's an interesting riff on the quest novel - discussing the reasons for quests (mostly, that someone wants to get rid of you) - and the fact that each person values most what someone else is bound to dismiss, or simply fail to recognize as a thing of value...

The characters (the usual motley assortment that become a Company) are interesting and varied, but I was left with the feeling that I would have liked to explore them further - especially the "bad guys" - the reasons for their turning to evil were never really mentioned at all...

The flow of the plot was also slightly awkward - as far as balancing the points of view of different characters, and when elements of the story were hidden or revealed...

Overall, worth reading for a Tepper fan - but I feel that she could do a much better job with the story if she were writing it now!

They seek to answer riddles that have no answer. They are bound on a quest that has no end. Thewson of the Lion Courts, Leona, Queen of the Beasts, Medlo, outlawed Prince, Jasmine the Dancer, Terascouros the Singer. And young Jaer, whose like has never been seen; Jaer, the greatest riddle of all... They are the Revenants. This is their story.
