As before, so again Without rehashing the content of my first review on the subject, the majority of my comments as to the believability, sensibility and logic of the narrative apply here just as they did to Edge of the World, though having settled into an understanding of what to expect, I found it far less jarring and much easier to simply read through and carry on to appreciate the development of the plot within its context. To boldly go This section of the story focuses much more on the voyages of discovery set up towards the end of the first book.
They each hope that finding Terravitae will prove their own version of the faith to be correct, and that the third son of God, Holy Joron, will side with them against the other, making the motives for the ventures morally suspect. In spite of the questionable motives, the leaders of both expeditions are good men with noble intentions, so you never find yourself at a point where you wish either side ill.
Instead, you cheer for a pair of epic voyages into the great unknown, as the crews quite literally point away from shore and sail away with no concept whatsoever of what they might find, going on faith in the success of their mission. The supernatural revealed Another facet of this story that developed far more in this installment than in the first is the presence of the supernatural and mythical. We see some inklings in Edge of the World that the religious beliefs of these people are based in some kind of legitimate objective fact.
We see what we would unmistakably call magic, if not miracles, and while nobody seems to be hearing or answering prayers, various occurrences suggest that there is truth to the idea that Gods walk the Earth. We see massive sea serpents, including the mythical Leviathan, a beast so hideous and powerful that Ondun refused to create it a mate lest together they overwhelm the entire sea. By The Map of All Things, there is absolute proof that these are not all things that could be explained by our real-world science or the development of the natural world.
This creates a much greater sense of depth and character to the world, causing the reader to think back over all previous events of the series in a new light. Why should you read this book? The story is more interesting, and concentrates less on the pointless travesty of a war going on, focusing on the exploration and the world to a much greater degree.

I have to give it 3 stars for complexity, pace and new ideas. But this book isn't as good as the first. It seems as if the author is making it up as he goes along, and inventing new stuff as required to keep the plot moving. As with the first book, almost every move is telegraphed. Creston, right, the guy who lives as a recluse until everyone who knew him is gone, then reappears in rags to say, "Yo, I'm here to captain the super-ship" and everyone says, "hey, Cres, dude, you da man. We have sympathetic magic that works at a distance.
A model of an object reflects changes to the object, and this seems to be common but no one has ever thought to use it for anything else. A torn notebook can be used like a fax machine over apparently-infinite distances, but no one has ever thought to use it for anything except as a walkie-talkie for travelling priestesses.
In a world with Dalicar who is clearly C. Dibbler from Discworld someone would have found a military or commercial application. Sailing, sailing, dum de dum de dum - oh, look, here's God's body. Not to worry, his wife can un-age and is a mighty wizard, although I'd have thought that his powers would let her just make a new ship instead of plugging holes with starfish.

Never mind, let's piss her off and flee. Oops, gosh, look a serpent big enough to circle the world, although its head is small enough to swoop down and check us out. Let's repeat countless times that mammoths can't be tamed and there's nothing for them to eat, then let's march them across a mountain range hello, Hannibal!
We have just too many repeats of the plot line in which we see that X is a wonderful, kind and intelligent person, but gosh those other guys are so mean that X has no choice but to out-mean them. Once would have been enough, maybe twice.

Oh, and it's an adventure, so let's have enough slaughter to fill up a video game. I see now. This is a book for the video game crowd. Lots of action, and don't look to closely at the plot.

I'm not saying that's a bad thing, either. This isn't a book for the ages, it's a story. To write more than novels in less than 50 years of life, probably 30 years of writing, you have to write quickly. Isaac Asimov could do it without the haste showing. KA can't quite. I hope KA finds time along the way to take his time and write a one-volume corker; I think it would be terrific.
View 1 comment. The second installment in what looks like it will be a long series of books. Unlike its predecessor, The Map of All Things offers a much more continuous storyline - time-jumps are used minimally, mostly to cover periods of non-activity for example two of the storylines in the book are set on ships, so every so often the story jumps over days or weeks of plain sailing on the open sea.
As with the first book, the characters are one of the strongest points in the story. Most of the original chara The second installment in what looks like it will be a long series of books. Most of the original characters are present including one that may surprise you!
However, the cast is expanded as some of the children of the original characters are now old enough to begin making their mark on the world. Anderson does well in establishing these new characters, they have a distinctly different feel to the adults rather than being carbon-copies with smaller numbers attached to them a flaw in many epic fantasies where children and teenagers often seem to think and reason like adults, which can only partially be justified by the experiences they often go through.
The second book expands the setting with more fantastical elements than the first including appearances by non-human characters.

However magic remains a secondary and relatively limited element. There are no organisations of mages or problems directly related to magic in this story yet! The comparison with the Crusader Age mixed with a dash of Christopher Columbus remains strong, and at this point I'm fairly certain that it is intentional, although what message Anderson might be trying to communicate isn't fully clear to me yet I have my suspicions, but I'll let you make up your own minds rather than spell them out here.
