A towering multi-volume fantasy, The Pearl, is launched by Eric Van Lustbader in The Ring of Five Dragons. Lustbader, one of the most famous and popular writers of the last three decades, returns to the fantasy genre with his most ambitious work yet. Filled with action, colour, and the myriad details of another world, The Pearl is the first great new fantasy series epic of the new millennium, set to rival Robert Jordan, David Eddings, and Terry Goodkind in popular appeal. The Kundalan people have suffered for a century under the viciously oppressive, technologically-superior Vornn invaders. In the resulting crisis of faithwhy hasnt their goddess Miina saved them?Kundalan religion falls under the control of evil forces from within. They, pretending to have no magic of their own and forbid the teaching of traditional sorcery. The Vornns mysterious leaders, the Gyrgon, search for the lost Ring of Five Dragons, the key to the door of the fabled Kundalan Storehouse, and perhaps to Kundalan sorcery as well. Misused, the ring triggers seemingly inexorable annihilation for Vornn and Kundalan alike. Now, from among the oppressed, must arise the hero of prophecy, the Dar Sala-at, who alone can wield the sorcerous power to save the world. Thus begins a huge epic, rooted in the conflict between spiritual and technological civilizations, that confronts difficult moral and cultural questions in a manner reminiscent of Frank Herberts Dune.
Reviews:
  • Eigeni
The story line and characters are bent to please a traditional family of sci-fi readers but the in-depth expression of thoughts, actions and surroundings follow a rich detail oriented manner that requires the reader to learn as well as be entertained. Vocabulary throughout, both the author's fictional contributions and Webster's own require a memory for future identification while continuing to read the book and a sound understanding of the English language for a more refined description of writer's demanding and thought provoking story.

I love this series. Wish it didn't have to end. More More More please.
  • Bev
Love the sage Lustbader weaves.
  • Vaua
Great story - going to order the next in the series!
  • Auridora
A good read although at times complicated and drawn out at times. Van Lustbader is a master of description and suspence
  • invincible
Lustbader , great story teller. Attention to detail and authenticity superb. Rich in culture and history. Equal if not better than Ludlum.

Just finished this one and had to give my view. It seemed like a good story and had a good plot but I was disappointed, not only in how this book ended, but also, how it was written. I like the idea of mixing sci-fi with fantasy and have read other books with a mix; but I was not that pleased in how this one was written. There was too much jumping around during the story you never knew which character you were reading about sometimes in the middle of a chapter. Some books work well with a constant switch but it needs to be done the right way and this was just a bit too confusing at times. I don't feel that the ending left me with much to look forward to; I even had to go look to see if there was suppose to be more to this story. This plot line has a lot of potential but I don't believe it was used well. I did like the book but not interested in going on from this one. Too bad, I think Mr. Lustbader could have had a great book here if it was a little better organized.
The first thing about this novel is that it could be cut in half at a minimum. There was so much unnecessary, extraneous information. The characters did not fell real. The story was convoluted. In the world of the story, the Vornn are the invaders who have taken over the planet inhabited by the Kundalan. Despite this, the Vornn male seem to have no interest in the females of their species, but are overly enthralled with every Kundalan female on the planet. The story line is so convoluted that I can't even succinctly explain it. It does, however, involve a ring and the fate of the planet. The part that really lost me was when the main character, a Vornn male transforms into a Kundalan female. Yeah, exactly. Not to mention that if I see another word with three consecutive same letters, I might have to scream. This book is not worth reading.
