My father was an excellent story teller and observer of life and it would have been very worthwhile to have recorded his memories of his career in the theater and the depression and as he related them.
Yet, as I got further into the book I began to realize this is a very thoughtful book. There is a castle, of course, and a monastery. So why has Jack Darcey - actor, wanderer, ex-competitive fencer - been tricked and seduced into paying a visit? Jack London comes to mind as a good tight storyteller; and I want to mention the two tightest books of my experience: True Grit by Charles Portis and A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess. The suspense was so intense my stomach hurt from nerves most of the time. I would have liked to have seen some of the characters more fleshed out, and some of the conversations seemed awkward.

There is even a pitch dark, rat-infested dungeon — because you simply have to have one if you are trying a rule a feudal kingdom! All the people in this novel have withdrawn from the modern world to a more Middle Ages style world, but when Guy Hawke begins to act less civilized, the people don't like it. Overall This book was not for me. The book started out slow and had a few issues, but it ended well enough.
It goes on for a few paragraphs, and it is highly complex without being dry.
