He had been sleeping soundly through a barrage of much louder raps, squeaks, wails, and creaks as a moorland wind howled around Nardalborg, but this was business across the room before he was truly awake. A dim predawn light showed around the window shutter. He opened the door a finger-width. Inevitably, the caller was Frath Thranson, leader of white pack, which had the guard tonight. My lord, perimeter patrol reports a sighting. Seven warbeasts pulling a sled, my lord. Approaching Cleft Rock.

Fifteen years after the conquest by Bloodlord Stralg of the city of Celebre and the kidnapping of its four potential heirs, Stralg's troops are ensconced in the city as the humiliated wife of its. Originally from Scotland, Dave Duncan has lived all his adult life in Western Canada, having enjoyed a long career as a petroleum geologist before taking up writing. Since discovering that inventing imaginary worlds is more satisfying than poking holes in the real one, he has published three dozen novels, mostly in the fantasy genre, but also in young adult, science fiction, and historical.

Dave Duncan is always fun. His characters are likable, his plots are wild, and he does not take himself too seriously. Sort of a more low key pleasant version of Terry Pratchett.

Other readers will always be interested in your opinion of the books you've read. Whether you've loved the book or not, if you give your honest and detailed thoughts then people will find new books that are right for them. 1. Mother of Prevention.

Mother of Lies (and Children of Chaos which precedes it) are not Duncan's finest works. For the fans of the previous works by Duncan I would say only that in my opinion "Mother of lies" is one of the best books by this author. However, his finest works are very fine indeed whereas these books are just an excellent, engaging read. I did enjoy reading them both very much and was quite sad when they were done. The characters are complex and interesting, and the plot has so many twists and surprises, that I actually had to go for a very long lunch break, to be able to finish the book.

The past fifteen years have not been kind to Celebre, the greatest city on the Florengian face of a dodecahedral world. Its walls have been breached and its Doge humiliated by the evil Bloodlord Stralg; all four of its heirs kidnapped and taken over the Edge to Vigaelia; its Dogaressa forcibly impregnated by Stralg and--when her husband's health begins to fail--left to rule over a city teeming with Stralg's troops. And if you think Stralg is bad, wait until you meet his sister Saltaja, a fanatic who sees no human cost as too great to keep the Hrag dynasty in power and her goddess--evil Xaran, the Mother of Lies--appeased.But there are a few great hopes for the future of the city: the Mutineer, Marno Cavotti, who will not stand to see his hometown destroyed and is massing a powerful liberation movement mere inches beyond Stralg's grasp. And the four heirs of Celebre--each with god-given expertise in their respective fields of artistry, combat, wisdom, or death--are wending their way back over the Edge to their birthplace. Of course, even as Marno and the Celebre children are working towards the common goal of defeating the Hrags, they're all painfully aware that once that hurdle is crossed only one of them can wind up on the throne.Continuing the storyline set out in Children of Chaos, Mother of Lies is a fierce, kinetic romp that will keep readers guessing until the last blow is dealt.

Dave Duncan, you have forced me into a split personality disorder. Please stop writing books, I need to save some money. Please keep writing books, they are excellent.

Mother of Lies (and Children of Chaos which precedes it) are not Duncan's finest works. However, his finest works are very fine indeed whereas these books are just an excellent, engaging read. I did enjoy reading them both very much and was quite sad when they were done. All loose threads tied, story all tied up in a neat bow.

As with all of Duncan's books, I felt a strong affinity for the characters and the story moved along at a good pace, with multiple threads interwoven. The analysis of nature versus nurture was quite intriguing

Recommend buy.

I wasn't really sure what I was getting into with Dave Duncan's "dodeca" books, but I've enjoyed much of his other writing, so I thought I'd give it a chance. I'm glad I did -- the world, the characters, the magic, and the plot threads were all top-notch and a real blast to read through.

The background for the story consists of the unique world -- a dodecahedron -- and a magic system in which 12 distinct gods assist their followers in directly affecting the world. What could have been a trite or simplistic approach instead comes out in interesting, complex (but thankfully not overly-so) interactions, as we watch the primary characters grow.

Sadly, the books are relatively short, and at least so far, two is all you get. Because the story takes place on only two of the world's faces, it seems a fertile environment for additional books set in the same universe. As you can guess, I really hope this to be the case.

Another fabulous book by a Master of Fantasy! I read book one, and rushed to get my hands on this sequel, dying to know what happened to the characters. And was NOT disappointed! I adore all of Duncan's books, but this one was extra riveting for me. No matter the world (which is always fantastic), his characters are always so compelling!
Jube
the series started off with a few too many sub stories and in this conclusion, there was a rush to tie up all the ends.. so great leaps of fancy were employed that left me shaking my head..

Delicious read. I couldn't put it down. I suggest this book to anyone who enjoys a lovely adventure in another world.

Dave Duncan did it again. He created a new unique world, which is weird and cool, even though physically impossible, as he himself admits in the appendix to the book. He brought to life monsters, heroes and bloodlords... and you can forget about your night sleep until after you close the last page.

For the fans of the previous works by Duncan I would say only that in my opinion "Mother of lies" is one of the best books by this author. The characters are complex and interesting, and the plot has so many twists and surprises, that I actually had to go for a very long lunch break, to be able to finish the book.

For new readers who never has heard about Dave Duncan - please do yourself a favor and grab "Children of Chaos" (the first book in "The Dodec Books" series). If you love fantasy books, you will not be disappointed.

I have enjoyed most of Mr. Duncan's books, and this short series is no exception. While good, I did not think it was up to the same level as some of his earlier works. Just my personal taste, but I found some of the violence overdone, but that seems to be the norm for most fantasy books these days. Also, I found the Dodec concept rather distracting. I may have missed something, but I cannot fathom why this has much relevance to the story (and it shows up in a technical appendix which did not interest me at all).
Even though this may not be his best (in my opinion), this series is still well worth reading and is full of interesting characters that I grew to care about.
On the dodecahedral shaped orb Dodec, Werist worshipper Bloodlord Stralg Hragson uses his austere kingdom of Vigaelia as a base to expand his rule. Using his barbarian horde and clairvoyant seers, Stralg has traversed the icy mountains to conquer much warmer Florengia where he forced the locals to worship his war god Weru and abducted the four children (Dantio, Orlad, Fabia, and Benard) of the ruling Doge Piero as hostages.

However, Stralg proves too successful in converting the Florengian when Werist rebels led by Marno Cavotti begin to kick the northerners out of their realm until only Hragson's sister Saltaja, a follower of the death goddess Xaran, remains a threat. Seer Dantio, Werist Orlad and closet Xaran worshipper Fabia agree to go home to prevent Saltaja from destroying Florengia while each, along with their sculpturing sibling they left behind in Vigaelia, wonder who will rule the country once the conquerors are gone and their sire dies.

MOTHER OF LIES is an exciting action-packed tale, but it is more thriller than fantasy as much of the magic of the Gods provided to the mortal and extensively used in the first novel (see CHILDREN OF CHAOS) is underutilized in the second saga. Thus a two edged sword surfaces as the audience can see deeper into what are the key motivators of the principal players especially the offspring of the Piero and the sister of Stralg. Still the second Dodec fable is a fast-paced fantasy as the "empire" strikes back.
