Yet the card sent by service tube from the hotel desk had.

It’s the story of Jason dinAlt a professional gambler with psionic skills who finds himself on Pyrrus the deadliest planet to be colonized by humanity. Violent weather, active tectonics, heavy gravity, abundant predators, and a hostile splinter group of colonists is only the beginning of Jason’s quest to learn the truth about.

A third lance through his wrist pinioned that arm. Spread-eagled, wounded, and dazed by shock, Guard Lieutenant Talenc opened his mouth to cry aloud, but even this was denied him. The nearest rider leaned over casually an. The nearest rider leaned over casually and thrust a short saber between Talenc's teeth, deep into the roof of his mouth, and his voice was stilled forever. One of the screens is out-there goes another-they hit it with something. And they're fixing lines to the landing legs. I don't know if they can pull us over-and I don't want to find out.

Deathworld 3 Harry Harrison DELL PUBLISHING COMPANY. For Kingsley and Jane -gratefully. Chapter 1 Guard Lieutenant Talenc lowered the electronic binoculars and twisted a knob on their controls, turning up the intensity to compensate for the failing light. The glaring white sun dropped behind a thick stratum of clouds, and evening was close, yet the image intensifier in the binoculars presented a harshly clear black-and-white image of the undulating plain. Talenc cursed under his breath and swept the heavy instrument back and forth. Grass, a sea of wind-stirred, frost-coated grass.

The planet was called Felicity. The name was a joke except for those compelled to settle there. Inhabiting it were beings bred for thousands of years for a single purpose: to attack and kill. Jason knew this. But he also knew the planet on which he lived was moving towards certain disaster. And Felicity was the only spot in the universe where he and his companions could survive. He thought he had worked out the perfect plan. But what awaited him on Felicity went far beyond his wildest imagining.

"Deathworld 3" by Harry Harrison. Kudo's to Harry Harrison, a true genius. The final book in this trilogy is a fitting conclusion to one of the best sci/fi stories I've ever read. Beautiful narrative combined with the vivid imagination and pulse pounding action that seems to follow Jason dinAlt wherever he goes. In league with Kerk and Meta, his fellow warriors, this is a must read for all aficionados of the sci fi genre...a masterpiece!!!

I have lost count of the number of times I have read and re-read the three books in this amazing series since I was kid. Of the three books, the parallels to Harrison's other truly great adventure series , The Stainless Steel Rat, are most easily seen here. Jason DinAlt, Meta, Kerk, and Rhys, more in sync than in the first book of the series, wrestle once again with a problem of planetary proportions, gambling their lives for a future they never thought they would live to see. Fast-paced, with a fun balance of ethics and antics, Harrison's form was near its peak in this series. The series rates a 5.

This edition of the work by SF Gateway is terrible however, with no possible effort at even a basic editing pass after an OCR scan of the original. Reduced the rating of this amazing series to a 3 to serve as a caution for potential buyers. Harrison, and this series, not to mention simple pride in one's work and product demand better.

The 3rd, and final, book in the series finds Jason dinAlt trying to save the Pyrrans from themselves. Things are growing worse on their home planet, but Jason has found a world called, "Felicity", which is anything but. Pyrrans are miners and Felicity has a good load of minerals that can be mined in the cold north part of the major continent.

Unfortunately, it also has a population that wants nothing to do with civilization and it's building. They spend their time fighting with each other -- and they're very good at it.

Can the Pyrrans overcome the obstacles under Jason's leadership? Or will they have to go home to eventual extinction?

I loved the first book of the series. Tolerated the second (still a good "read"). This third book makes up for the second and then some.

First published in 1968, this is the last of the Deathworld Trilogy. The story follows the adventures of one Jason dinAlt, who we first met in Deathworld, where he became involved with the struggle on a deadly planet which was hostile to all human life, and life was a struggle from second to second. In the second of these books, Jason is kidnapped and taken to a primitive world where he must survive on his wits and physical strength alone.

Now, with this work, the Planet which is Jason's new home is doomed. The quickly evolving environment has won, and the human inhabitants are doomed. But not is all lost. Jason has a plan. The men and women, and even children, who make up the population of Pyrrus are the ultimate fighting force, as far as defense goes. Now Jason has found a planet that is made up of the ultimate offensive fighting force. A planet made up of tribes similar to the Mongols of Earth. Taking a select few volunteers, Jason and his band depart for this planet to start a new life and a new society. The odds are not in their favor. The story is of struggle to do this.

Harrison is a natural story teller. He is funny and his character development is some of the best. This work is about 40 years old now but is just as readable now as the day it was written. This is SiFi at its best. A lot of action, a bit of romance, adventure, strange cultures and tricky problems. It is a pure joy to read. I am one of those people who enjoy rereading the books I like. I have read this one and the two previous works, ever two or three years since they were first published and still enjoy them. It should be noted that you do not have to read the previous two novels to enjoy this one. Each of these works, Deathword, Deathword 2 and Deathworld 3, can be read as separate books and enjoyed as stand-alones. This is one of those works that really should not be lost as it stands the test of times and is actually better that quite a lot of the current stuff in this genre. Cannot recommend this trilogy strong enough.

Typical sci-fi saga -- a perfect time-sink. Harry creates an interesting

conundrum -- how to survive on a planet that is hostile at every turn.
